Are Butches as Tough as You Think??

If You prick us do we not bleed?

If you tickle us do we not laugh?

Shakespeare wrote this about Jews,

in The Merchant Of Venice,

the  point was,

people are people,

Jew,

Gentile,

Black,

White,

Men,

Women,

Gay,

Straight,

Butch,

Queen,

people are people,

we all bleed,

we all suffer,

we are all strong,

we are all weak,

we are all good,

we are all bad,

given the right circunstances,

we can all rise to the occasion,

or,

crumble like a house of cards.

Butches are people,

tough?

sure,

we pride ourselves,

on our strenght,

it’s part of what we believe,

about ourselves,

and,

what we vehicule to others.

Butches can tough it out,

butches are ‘good men in storms’.

You can count on us,

in a crisis,

a shoulder to cry on,

a sympathetic ear,

bail you out of jail,

drive to the car impound,

hold you through the scary night,

get you drunk to drown your sorrows,

butches,

are your buds,

they help you move,

they pick  your mother up at the airport,

they’re who you call,

right?

Butches understand,

they don’t judge,

they’re tough,

they’re sensitive,

they’re gentleman,

they’re considerate lovers,

of course they are,

but,

they are also,

tough on the outside,

and,

soft on the inside,

butches bleed,

butches aren’t always impervious,

don’t let appearances,

deceive you,

butches aren’t so tough.

🙂

Later girls,

Bookish Butch

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream
