Hey so I've kind of been identifying as butch for a while now, but I've recently been told that bis can't be butch? Is that just a lesbian thing? I don't want to go around saying I'm boyish, but I don't know what to call myself if not a butch bi…?
hi! butch is a lesbian-specific term, but bisexuals also have a rich history with identifiers that is often erased. i personally identify as a tomcat
tomcat – a gnc bi woman/fem aligned person who like presenting more typically masculine, but also changes their presentation from time to time
stag – basically a tomcat, but sticks to presenting more masculine
doe – i think this is the most recent term? but this is an equivalent of femme (any does feel free to add on)
