Can Butch Women Be Feminist? 

Ask A Butch 

Today Sheena is joined by Amy and Lise to chat about whether or not a butch women can be feminist.

About Amy Herman-Pall 

Amy’s been out for over 25 years, but it took her some time to accept and identify with the label ‘butch.’ She’s worked in several different traditionally male jobs, from carpentry and woodworking, to truck driving, and in each she’s simply proven that a woman can do as well as a man. 

As far as other butch stereotypes go, there are some she fits and some she never will. But she’s found her match in the femme that claimed her.

About Sheena 

Sheena struggled for most of her youth with coming out. It was only at 22 when she met her wife that she could no longer deny her attraction to women. A large part of why she struggled had to do with the misconceptions and stereotypes of being a lesbian. 

So she and her wife started to the show Les Talk About It where these myths and stereotypes are discussed. 

Ask A Butch is a spin-off show. Sheena soon realized that it was not possible to answer questions all types of lesbians and so she wanted to address hatred towards butch women, specifically.

Lez Geek Out: Spirits Podcast

October 4, 2017

Spirits Podcast 

Andi and Lise RAVE about Spirits Podcast, which is: “…boozy biweekly podcast about mythology, legends, and lore. Every episode, co-hosts Julia and Amanda mix a drink and discuss a new story or character from a wide range of places, eras, and cultures. Learn brand-new stories and enjoy re-tellings of your favorite myths, served over ice every two weeks, on Spirits.” 

Andi and Lise really dig the banter between hosts Amanda and Julia, who speak enthusiastically and knowledgeably about mythological creatures, paranormal creatures and themes, and folklore all over the place. They skillfully lay out the legends, address major themes, and then link them to contemporary cultural interpretations and mores. And they are all about women’s rep in these journeys into mythological pasts.

And as a side note, Spirits will soon be going WEEKLY rather than biweekly, beginning at some point in October.

Back in Season Six, Daenerys Targaryen told Tyrion Lannister, “Lannister, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell, they’re all just spokes on a wheel.  This one’s on top and that one’s on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. We’re not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel.” In this episode, we go House by House and discuss what’s gone wrong, and what’s gone so, so right for the villains and heroes of Game of Thrones.
