Rejecting femininity is seen as a cool and radical thing to do. Femme-ness is consequently labeled conformist and unimportant. According to this logic, femmes are eye candy, but we don’t really have anything interesting to say. In case there was any doubt about this, let me clarify: just because I wear makeup and heels does not mean I’m brainless, unaware of my actions, and unwittingly conforming to patriarchal expectations. I have not failed to deconstruct my internalized whatever-the-fuck. I am not waiting for you, oh great masculine-of-center queer person to save me by showing me the error of my ways.
"I totally support femmes—they’re so hot": Terrible Opening Line from my other blog, Adventures through Heteronormativity.  Discussing (among many other issues) femmephobia and why femininity is ridiculed while masculinity is considered powerful and praiseworthy.
