*I always hated being thought of as 'butch' until i realized it was my thoughts putting that image on myself.
*Who is likely to have good credit-In my experience, whoever has the most money.
*Think all responses depend on the individual.
*I don't think that any of the options for definition of butch was appropriate.
*It is funny how after answering all those questions I still, quickly, answered what my label is.
*I just like to chill on them, because being me consists of more than just dressing and acting a certain way. Too confining, I say!
*I am into compatability more than labels. Sometimes, when you are caught up into labels, you can miss a woman who really might be the one for you or vise versa.
