Question of the Day

What is a stone butch? And more importantly, why is a stone butch a stone butch? Though I'm sure there are a myriad of reasons, it's just that I don't know any of them. I don't want anyone to think I want to really dig into someone's deep dark secrets, but it's an area of our community that I don't really understand. Most of the lesbians I know are ones who reject any kind of labels other than gay, and don't ever want to discuss gender with me. They're just not interested. So I have a lot to learn.

some folks use stone to mean 'very'. more often it means or at least implies certain sexual boundaries. i wrote about my personal feelings on the topic here:

(with apologies for flogging my blog in your comments)

sublime femme wrote some stuff about stone as applied to femmes a while back i believe as well?

My understanding of stone butch was always a butch who did the giving but none of the taking.
