#50 Sam Occupies Wall Street

Robin, a femme, traveled from Brooklyn to Manhattan to visit her queer daughter at the Occupy Wall Street protest.  She says,

"Today at the Occupy Wall Street protest I met Sam. Sam said she identifies as a butch 'depending on the day.' She had really beautiful tattoos. Sam came to Liberty Park today to join in the protests because she's one of the "99%" as protesters refer to ourselves (that is, the 99% who will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%)."


  1. Still trying to figure out the meaning of your blog site. Pretty interesting.

  2. Is it really okay to use such words as butch,queer.i just don't understand.

  3. Tyler, one easy way to understand the legitimacy of terms such as "butch" or "queer" is to go to your local library and look them up as a word search in the catalogue. You will find books ranging from history to cultural anthropology to novels to memoirs to high theory with these terms in their titles.
