What is Femme? (100 words or less)

Femme means fucking shit up. It means taking whatever people know about gender, class, race, ability, body configuration or polite behavior and bending, twisting, cracking it into little bits. Once these concepts are shattered, they get reassembled – transformed into something as unique as the person wearing it. In my mind, Femme is inclusive – anyone can claim, define, and shape it. Yes, even “straight” women. Femme is over the top – we take femininity to the upper limits, and we’re not afraid to take it one step too far. In fact, we do it every damn day.
