Pan-Femme Manifesto

Posted: January 21, 2010 in Autogynephilia 2008

Male-Born Femme and Queer Fat Femme can together push a Femme Cultural Revolution. Femme is a form of resistance to our dehumanizing late-modern Culture.
For Mabs (Male At Birth), a Femme gender offers us an alternative to the narrative of “Real Woman” which is so prevalent in contemporary transgender politics. We do not have to make biological claims to Femaleness, because Femme is acknowledged as artifice and performance. The performance of Femme however opens up to feminine cultural embodiment. We are treated as feminine and become feminine.
Queer girls have been pioneering this gender activism in San Francisco and Brooklyn. I invite Genderqueer Mabs take inspiration and direction from their pioneering work.
I wrote a post last year to the day, also advocating for a Femme Boy alternative.
