    So I already established I'm a lesbian. A friend asked me what type I was? I'm like"errrr hmm I don't really know my style is more feminine but i can rock a tux or tomboyish clothing like it's nothing too. i guess a mix of feminine and masculine?"

    So this made me question what were lesbian types? could somebody explain this to me as i'm fairly new to the community on socializing and I'm not familiar with slang and types. not really sure what to even define myself as or even if i should at all?
    Somebody give it to me straight
    hahaahahahaha
    you know what i meant. :)

    Does your friend mean lesbian stereotypes?

    Sometimes people assume if you are a lesbian you are either into femme or stud butch (again they ask if you identify as a certain type e.g a femme, stud/butch, etc.)

    I think there is a term for both equally feminine and masculine it's chapstick.

    There's loads of lesbian 'supposed' types but am not sure whether that is a social media/dating site/app thing. I don't think many people label in real life as much. Just be yourself

    For some reason my confused brain read that as "Tired of lesbians" and I was wondering what that was supposed to mean.

    To your question, I have no idea. I would've just called you a tomboy.

    You look femme to me,and femme to me means "average",i mean how both straight and lesbian women usually look like

    butch is a woman who is very masculine,tomboy is a more mild version of a butch ?

    then there are andro girls who are in the middle

    and then i have heard of "lipstick lesbians" ,those are very feminine women with high heels,dresses and wear makeup all the time ,i guess.


    those are just stereotypes though ,lesbians come in all shapes and colours

    What SugarHiccup said. Also there is a thing called soft butch where a woman is butch but a little more feminine. But honestly all of these types are just labels. There are all types of lesbians. Don't take it too seriously, just be yourself and you will find the right people.
