I am late to work because my door fridge falls off randomly just as I’m headed out the door. When I finally get to work and update with the details of how I tried to fix the door, one of my co-workers says, “That’s so butch of you.” I’m taken aback because, yes, I am a masculine queer woman, but more than anything I grew up poor and poor people just fix their own shit. I am consistently read as much more masculine in middle-class and upper-class contexts.
