Butch to femme dating
There are so many complexities to being a woman and so many complexities to loving one.
Women are deep and mystical creatures full of twists and turns and subtle beauty.
On top of all that, women can love like no one else in the world.
By saying that because my girlfriend has short hair I should be open to dating men, these people are saying that they have forgotten about all these other parts of loving a woman.

That way, you've got at least a 70 percent chance that the chick you want to talk to will actually be into girls (the other 30 percent are likely straight allies or bi-curious).“If you’re dating a woman who looks like a man, then why don’t you just date men? Granted, most of the time we get this question it is just some jerk trying to get under our skin, but as unbelievable as it may sound, there are still some people who look us in the eye and ask because they truly wonder.
