Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be a lesbian. It's embarrassing that because I do my hair, wear clothes that fit and generally take pride in my appearance, people think I must be straight - yet, I understand why they do. While I'm not butch nor am I attracted to them, Rachel Maddow is a perfect example of the butch style done right. Ladies, you can rock the butch look without walking around looking like you should be on an episode of What Not to Wear. In short: Your jeans should not be four sizes too big, hockey jerseys belong on the ice, and crew cuts look good on nobody!
