Butch Is a Noun Free download ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Written by award winning playwright and inveterate storyteller S Bear Bergman Butch Is a Noun picks up where gender theory leaves off It makes butchness accessible to th I enjoyed this book thoroughly If I have one complaint it s that at times I tired of the volume of courtly love butch adoring femme passages But I also recognize those probably were not written for me much as I have adored femme women in my time I am ultimately not a butch or at least not the chivalrous type that is Bergman s focusThis book has received its fair share of criticism that it essentializes butch identities that it recapitulates butchfemme relationships as the normative relationship for ueer women that it glorifies masculinity machismo chivalry etc I think there are moments that it could be said to do these things but in the next moment Bergman will undo or uestion hir own statement or introduce another voice or another experience that troubles an easy or definitive definition of butch of femme or of ueer relationships I think that the instructive tone of some of the essays probably seems too prescriptive for some readers but it is important to consider a that this is Bergman writing about hir own experiences and not the experiences of all butches as ze points out repeatedly and as such may be satisfyingly read as a memoir and b that the instructive bits are meant to speak to certain butches who identify with at least some aspects of Bergman s version of butchness and who lack mentorship andor understanding of that butchness they are not for everyone As a series of connected essays this is a book that contains many messages for many readers and I doubt any reader would relate to all of itI came to this book curious about the definition of butch identity as a bisexual woman left out of communities of ueer women often than not I have in some ways been excused from needing to plant myself in either butch or femme camps or even really to understand the culture of either While there are some advantages to avoiding the butchfemme boxes I freuently feel left out of ueer sisterhoodsbrotherhoods entirely by virtue of being neither butch nor femme nor lesbian In reading this book I identified with some aspects of butchness particularly the feeling of being deeply uncomfortable with sporting certain femme aesthetic trappings such as make up or coiffed hair I am supposed to like these things as a presumed and mostly passing as heterosexual woman but I feel as alienated by them as Bergman does Beyond this resonance I did not identify with most of Bergman s version of butch and probably will remain neither butch nor femme recognizing that even if I were to identify firmly with one of these camps I would be at odds as a bisexual anywayWhile I may not be a butch I think there are lessons for people of any gender in this book Particularly I admired and hope to take away some of Bergman s lessons about being a refuge in a storm for friends and strangers in need remember that you are making space for everyone who encounters you in these moments to feel as though there is kindness in the world for them that there are people who can look beyond their own needs sometimes and see the needs of others make sure you don t ignore your own needs that way lies loneliness and disappointment But keep your eyes open for others and ease their discomfort however you can Use whatever you can spare
