tom boy femmes

Why are so many queer women still under the impression that, because they’re a tomboy or sometimes feel butch/boyish, they’re not really femme or are “less” femme? For me, this is exactly wrong. I see tomboy femme as a form of gender mixing (not gender transgression) that’s both inside and outside the categories of butch and femme. I’m fascinated by tomboy femmes because their gender play makes visible the fluidity and flexibility of femme, which is otherwise difficult to see. - sublimefemme on the tomboy femme.
