They’re together at the Publix.
In the ‘burbs of Richmond, not the hippest place, but right now,
Two lesbians, their daughter, who’s maybe five but still rides in the cart.
The butch one is tall, a champ at androgyny, the shoulder length thinnish hair, John Lennon hippie glasses, fifty years from The Day. The plaid shirt, a drab, but harmonious assemblage in beige and brown.
The femme wears a skirt of paisley with green tones, a sweater, maybe mohair, magenta, maybe too.
The daughter rides in the cart, quietly. Her glasses, little kid glasses, are held on her head with string attached at each temple.
They buy groceries.
What else does one do at Publix?
This is what queer looks like in 2020.

Sonoma County is a gay mecca. About 10 years ago I was enmeshed in the community. I’m bi, so I definitely fit. lol Being femme isn’t hip here. Seems that most lesbians have a more androgenous look to them, if not straight out butch. It’s very rare to see a butchy woman with a femme woman around here. Being as femme as I am, dating was extremely unsuccessful. *sigh*
Bummer. Oh yeah. Androgyny to Butch fits here too. The butch took a while to confirm. She was that androgynous.
Sadly, the Butch – Femme Dynamic is fading out, being a foo foo myself I go bonkers for Butch women, thankfully, I lucked out and married one… she comes from the USA where Butch women apparently are not yet extinct completely like they seem to be up here in Canada, She flew up to see me ( after a 3-year online friendship) and we just clicked, so I married her @ss before she could escape!! 😉
That is cool about you and your wife. The Internet has made the world smaller, but maybe butch/femme pairings will last a little longer here.
