Can Butch Women Be Feminist?
Ask A Butch
Episode 5 of 5
This podcast series is aimed at busting myths around butch lesbians by asking actual butch lesbians.
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 Lise MacTague
Lise MacTague is a spec fit author. She has been known to play ice hockey and build awesome cosplay guns that she sells on her etsy account.
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.
