Femmepire records is an interview series on femme identity. Click here for the elevator pitch and first interview.
Here's local comedian Jennifer Dronsky:
In a few words, define femme.
A queer person who appears feminine in some way, wears dresses, makeup, has a feminine demeanor, or to straight people, someone who looks like they're “the chick” in the relationship.
If you don't have a definition, what do you think of Google's: “A lesbian or a male homosexual who takes a traditionally feminine sexual role.”
I think Google is a B-Hole. What does a “traditionally feminine sexual role” mean? Is that when the woman waits until the man has left the room to orgasm/cry? Just because I haven't worn pants since I was 16 and love lace doesn't mean that I am some pillow princess bottom who makes love like Sleeping Beauty in a pink satin room.
