    As a queer femme, I absolutely loved this so, so much, such a radical and beautiful read Nonetheless, I feel as though it s just the first foot in the door of femme discourse as separate from that of the femme butch dichotomy There are a couple of reasons why I didn t give it all five stars 1 I wish it were longer, 2 I wish it includedcritical analyses about femme as a radical identity, rather than just the intro after...

    I started and finished this brief anthology during a three hour train ride I would agree with other reviews that this collection is a mixture of brilliant and mediocre work I was especially impressed by Anna Camilleri and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna Samarasinha This book is a nice introduction to femme identities as it includes women of color, immigrants, drag queens, gay men, bi women, fat women, etc Another thing I like about this book is that it explores femme identity as separate from normative I started and finished this brief anthology during a three hour train ride I would agree with other reviews that this collection is a mixture of brilliant and mediocre work I was especially impressed by Anna Camilleri and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna Samarasinha This book is a nice introduction to femme identities a...

    Like others have said, this book is not bad, but falls short in some areas I did question the inclusion of some essays Wheels Plus for instance, even though I enjoyed reading it , and I also questioned the manifesto at the end which sort of said, If you date men you can t be in the club, which I found kind of off putting considering I identified heavily with the rest of the book, consider myself queer pansexual, and am currently in a relationship with a m...

    As someone who self identifies as a queer femme, I was curious and excited to read this book Like all anthologies, Brazen Femme contains both hits and misses If you can force yourself through the introduction and first chapter, most of the middle of the book is consistently good, though the Fem me inist Manifesto which closes the book is pretty terrible as well I enjoyed the fact that the anthology contained works created by a variety of femme identified people women, men, non binary gende As someone who self identifies as a queer femme, I was curious and excited to read this book Like all anthologies, Brazen Femme contains both hits and misses If you can force yourself through the introduction and first chapter, most of the middle of the book is consistently good, though the Fem me inist Manifesto which closes the book is pretty terrible as well I enjoyed the fact that the anthology contained works created by a variety of femme identified people women, men, non binary genders, trans people, people of colour, fat activists, drag queens, etc It could ha...

    I think for being published in 2002 this book mostly gets it right The editors seek to explore and define what it means to be femme through the poetry, essays, and ideas of a diverse group of femmes It is intersectional, and includes fat femmes, femmes of color, drag queens and mention of male or trans femmes It also seeks to include a class perspective, including voices from sex workers, poor folks, and others oft excluded or looked down for their occupation or lack of pedigree, depending o I think for being published in 2002 this book mostly gets it right The editors seek to explore and define what it means to be femme through the poetry, essays, and ideas of a diverse group of femmes It is intersectional, and includes fat femmes, femmes of color, drag queens and mention of male or trans femmes It also seeks to include a class perspective, including voices from sex workers, poor folks, and others oft excluded or looked down for their occupation or lack of pedigree, depending on the case That said, many of the pieces fell flat for me trying to convey the ...

    This book is amazing 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 I read the intro and was hooked immediately I felt better about myself and that I had the ability to be braver in my own identity.

    Mostly notable for its existence, the introduction, and two essays Quantum Femme by Elizabeth Ruth and Whores and Bitches Who Sleep With Women by Kathryn Payne And that fucking killer cover photo.

    this anthology is a bit spotty, but there are definitely some gems.

    I m not sure this is for me, but it s good to read different POVs One of the best things about essay anthologies though this also involved photography and poetry is the contributor list in the back lots of people to keep an eye on.
