    1 thought on “The Femme Mystique

    1. I know this book was written by our femme ancestors and has value for telling their truths in the context of their place in history but I hated this book I identify as femme but I did not find myself in the pages of this book The vast majority of stories told the same narrative again and again Each woman was ashamed of her femininity and then was rescued by a butch Again and again the women insisted they need only define themselves for themselves then turned around and insisted their identity ex [...]

    2. I found myself among the pages of The Femme Mystique For the first time ever, I heard of another gay woman who felt as I did a love of purses, heels, dresses, lingerieFemme Thank goodness for Leslea Newman I was finally able to put away the wallet, jeans, and Doc Martins that I thought I was resigned to wear within my identitiy as lesbian I now embrace the Femme in me and love a woman who also embraces me as Femme.

    3. A delightful selection of personal essays, poems, love letters and stories about the unique intersection of gender sexuality in the person of a femme and in the dynamics of butch femme relationships The pieces I liked the best were about opening up the definition of femme and those detailing the erotics of butch femme desire.

    4. As a Stone Butch Top I was hoping to find stories of Stone Femmes I found most of the stories concern Femme Switches.I did thoroughly enjoy of couples of the writings and I ll come back and provide the Titles for those in particular.Thank you
