Response to Photographing The Butch Women Of San Francisco:
Buzzfeed, if the project aims to photograph “those who choose to exist and identify outside the gender binary,” referring to the beautiful people in these photographs as butch women may be problematic. As I assume by the quote you have given by Allen, all of the subjects of these wonderful portraits do not identify as women. Though, of course, I can not be completely sure. Rewording the title of this article may be beneficial. Despite my hesitation about the title of this article, Buzzfeed, this is a wonderful project and I’m glad you have shed some light on it!
