The bouncer at Cubbyhole last night had a hand-made badge reading “Dapper not butch.” I think that the lesbian community (specifically the non-femme) is in the process of co-opting the word dapper. For example.
I’m using this post to highlight one of my favorite books, Women in Pants by Catherine Smith and Cynthia Greig. It’s chock full of fascinating, beautiful, and downright sexy photographs of “manly maidens, cowgirls, and other renegades.”
This woman is dapper, don’t you think?
I like that she is in full masculine garb but retained her soft poufed hair.
