I created my dykeness as a problem, wore it like a skin, made it visible. Masculine or butch dykeness was a salve, something put on, protective and predatory. I was turning the tables.
We’re not supposed to do that, and if we do, we’re not supposed to say it. The party line in femme-butch communities is the (still, continued) sense and representation of an innate gender, something we’ve always known about ourselves (even if we didn’t have the words for it) and always held true to, never betrayed. Betrayal. I am that betrayer. I talk about when I was a boy, and how I’ve shifted. I lay claim to both/and.

xox, iragray!
