Question

Would a cis female aroace having short hair and wearing things like winged eyeliner and flannels be appropriating wlw culture? Where is the line there? 

It would be awesome to hear some input from wlw here but anyone's input would be appreciated.

What? Is winged eyeliner considered a gay girl thing now? That's news to me. If anything I associate it more with straight girls. Clothes are clothes, man, wear what ya wanna. If wearing flannels is """appropriation""" now there's gonna be a lot of disgruntled Canadian men...

I don't think so. I mean, I am not a lesbian, but for me these things have nothing to do with being a being one. The stereotypical lesbian can be seen that way but for me, it is just a boyish style. Short hair was even a sign of woman emancipation before. I didn't know winged eyeliner was associating with lesbians, I think a lot of girls do it. And if you think flannel are great, I don't think wlw think of it as their symbol.

But again, I'm not part of this culture.

Nah I don't think so, those are clothes/styles that anyone can wear, and that didn't even originate among wlw as far as I know. I'm not wlw either but I don't see why not.

Personal style doesn't necessarily have anything to do with sexuality.  Worst case scenario, you might get mistaken for a lesbian, but no one's going to call you out for Appropriation.  Anyway, queer fashion isn't neatly divided up by orientation and gender.
