BBC English: butch

Source: Flickr.
Ostatnio na BBC4 wpadło mi w ucho ciekawe słowo...

BUTCH

Jest to przymiotnik, który odnosi się do kobiety, która wygląda i zachowuje się jak facet. Słowo to może także odnosić się do mężczyzny, który jest silny, dobrze zbudowany i zachowuje się w tradycyjnie pojmowany męski sposób.

To słowo jest też używane w odniesieniu do typowo chłopięcej fryzury: BUTCH CUT. W Polsce czasem mówi sie o fryzurze 'na rekruta', czyli ostrzyżenie krótkie i po całości.  

A few examples from the Net:
  • She is a butch dyke: that's the category. She is, nevertheless, mistaken for a man with some regularity, especially when she's wearing a suit...
  • I recently met a bio male who said she is a butch lesbian trapped in male body...
  • She is a bit of a stereotype in that she is a butch lesbian, partner to the much more...
  • The last lady I have been talking to for a month and she is a butch...
  • Very few guys fully suit a butch cut, currently referred to by some as a buzz cut...   
Any comments?
