Quotes from Brazen Femme: It was tough to read, very confrontational, and I liked that about it – I enjoy having to examine my own discomfort to see what that means about me – but as far as actual femmme quality goes, I think it varied. One of the best things about essay anthologies though this also involved photography and poetry is the contributor list in the back: This sounds wonderfully complex and out of the [one dimensional] femme-box that so many people seem to think exists.

Queering Femininity is a manifesto for the unrepentant bitch, straddling the furious brazzen fantastic.

Feb 08, Sarah rated it it was ok. The book is, for lack of a better word, intense, and unlike most anthologies, it never gets boring; as in, the contents never blend together and end up reading pretty much the same after awhile. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

No eBook available Amazon. I feel bad for writing such a mean review, but this book had so much potential, and I wish the editors had picked better pieces. Obviously, I have been very ignorant in my life concerning homosexuality.

I’m not sure this is for me, but it’s good to read different POVs. I also liked the dialogue between Abi Slone and Allyson Mitchell though I thought Mitchell’s paintings contributed absolutely nothing. Someone recommended it to me and said it might help with my understanding of Femme-ness and help me evaluate my own shaky identity as a possible femme.

I didn’t have time to finish it until a bunch of queerng set in, but what I did read was rather interesting. But aside from that, I did enjoy Like others have said, this book is not bad, but falls short in some areas.

I felt better about myself and that I had the ability to be braver in my own identity. Not a performer of legible gender transgression, like the butch and his sister the drag queen, but a betrayer of legibility itself.

May 06, Molly Thornton rated it liked it. As other reviewers have noted, Sky Gilbert’s piece was really out-of-place; frankly misogynistic at points, and really out of touch with the rest of the collection, My favorite piece was probably Kathryn Payne’s “Whores and Bitches Who Sleep with Women,” though Lisa Duggan’s and Kathleen McHugh’s “A Fem me inist Manifesto” is a close second.

I identify as femme and questioned whether or not I am actually femme based on prescribed definitions within this book. Undeniably celebratory and deeply troubling, this sharp-edged collection of fiction, prose poetry, personal essay, photographs, and illustration reveals the un-hyphenated femme experience emerging in performance, betrayal, violence, humor, and survival.


From inside the book. Nov 07, Claude Anne rated it it was amazing.

These essays positioned femme as a category unto itself, not as defined by butch or mas I’m not sure how I feel about this book. These were far from the only ones worth reading – most of the book is pretty fantastic.

As someone who self identifies as a queer femme, I was curious and excited to read this book. The editors seek to explore and define what it means to be femme through the poetry, essays, and ideas of a diverse brazeb of femmes.

Even some time after sleeping with girls. This mutability sets the stage for creative and thoughtful representation featuring critically acclaimed writers including Michelle Tea, Camilla Gibb, Sky Gilbert, Amber Hollibaugh and Anurima Banerji.

Like others have said, this book is not bad, but falls short in some areas. Sep 18, miss marla Fisher rated it liked it Recommends it for: As with Anna’s other work, there is a lot of rape related stories, which I’m not so into, but the text that deals with identity is fantastic. Refusing the fate of Girl-by-Nature, she fem me is Girl-by-Choice.

You know what I mean?
