I was having a conversation with my sister recently and we came upon the term “High Femme.”
According to the definitions, a High Femme is:
1. A queer person (usually in reference to the women) who revels in extreme expressions and/or parodies of femininity.
2. High femmes are femmes who intentionally and consistently embrace and express femininity past the point that most straight women do.
Okay, so does it mean just the way they look? Can it also mean how they act/behave? If you are just extremely feminine in appearance does that automatically mean you are a High Femme? What if you are “just a regular femme” that is high maintenance by nature, and/or ridiculously high maintenance in a relationship, could that be considered high femme?
What do you think?
Is it only about appearance?
What is a “high femme” to you?
