Modern feminism is redoing womanhood while queer activism is enlarging the idea of diversity. And yet, female masculinity did not find a place within feminism nor queer scenes. We are still not woman enough nor queer enough. That is why we are launching this project, creating the space for dykes to find our inner strength, define our own way of being female and our own and special queerness. We do not see any other way of living this process but from community empowerment and conflict confrontation. As we see it, becoming fearless towards conflict will build the tools for freedom of identity and expression in cultural contexts where we are still stigmatized.
We understand “female masculinity” as an umbrella term for a part of the spectrum of gender expression. Some had described it as masculinity performed by females, and others as an expression of femininity aligned with masculinity. For us, this gender expression can happen regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. So is this, that female masculinity includes women in sports, androgynous people, transmasc individuals, butches, dykes and everything in between. We want to target this community because it faces specific intersections of discrimination systems such as compulsory femininity, patriarchy and homophobia, among others. This intersection is not commonly addressed in feminist spaces nor in LGTB+ ones. We want to create the space to relieve from stigma as a community and transform female masculinity towards a positive value.
