I just joined this community today. I'm a heterosexual woman but am uncomfortable with all the attacks against femmes. Worse , is all of these kinds of things come from people who call themselves feminists.
I hadn't meant to make such an assertion. That was an extremely poor choice of words and I would like to apologize for offending you. What I should have written instead of "all" is the attacks from certain people. As an example , I was a reader of Twisty's but after a while some of her statements (and her commenters) began to leave a bad taste in my mouth. This particular thread doesn't really pertain what I was saying but it gives you an idea; http://blog.iblamethepatriarchy/2008/07/20/pornulation-empowerfulizes-us-all-humorous-iconic-hotties-say
I don't find her blog to be very welcoming to transpeople either. Anyway , that was a thoughtless statement and I'm sorry for coming across as a troll. I hope that this clears up any misunderstandings.
Thank you for the clarification. I agree that Twisty and her ilk are completely fucking batshit. Especially since what they're promoting as feminism is just women having their decisions made for them by a different group than the group that's controlled women historically.
Welcome to Fierce Femmes! This community is for *anyone* who identifies as femme. The purpose of the community is for those of us who identify as femme, and our allies, to talk about femme-related issues, such as femmephobia, sexism, heterosexism, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, able-ism, racism, classism, fatphobia, hotties, identity, makeup, shopping, gardening, or anything else that interests any given femme. It's up to you, y'know, you, the femme :)
