Movie Reactions

The thing that stuck out the most to me about the movie we watched on Wednesday was that I wasn't aware that being butch was ever something that stigmatized some lesbians to other lesbians. It was jarring and a little uncomfortable to see that character being mocked for not conforming to gender norms by other lesbians. Really, they were being just as oppressive as the straight feminists that threw them out of their campus club. They were reducing womanhood down to superficial things like hair and clothes. Wearing a tie and having short hair doesn't make you any less of a woman.

Also, I thought she was really really cute. Masc girls are adorable.
