SORT BY Relevancy
In the World, power is a concept with two very different meanings--'power to' and 'power over.' . ‘Power to’ refers to the ability of a person to change the circumstances of her life by creating and exercising options. 'Power over' refers to the ability to limit the options of others.
Insecurity tends to make some people try to control situations and outcomes. Surely this imposes some inconvenience or friction on other people.
A strong interest in achieving power and control in a relationship, ironically, can produce in a primary aggressor, the ‘feeling’ of being controlled. This is because the disquieting effects of a partner’s independent actions trigger coercive responses that are in the primary aggressor’s repertoire but not in their self image.
Love includes an interest in the empowerment of the partner. Power over and love are incompatible. Love leaves room for influence and leadership, but influence can’t be forced. Leadership is based on attraction not compulsion. When an interest in power over and control is held by either partner, escalation and abuse are inevitable.

Femme is a term used by many feminine-identified queer people from diverse and equally valuable backgrounds including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other queer folks. Femmes are fierce and use their voices to make themselves visible. Nevertheless, as femme women, they are often invisible to other queer people. They are often seen as heteronormative, apolitical, less radical and less queer in a community where being visible depends on being masculine or androgynous. This femmephobia in queer communities – this devaluation and stigmatization of queer femininity – is a form of misogyny that is rooted in dominant patriarchal culture
Keisha Watkins and Nkenge Jazz Burkhead are the co-founders of SMEARED LIPSTICK. The group is for lesbians of color who identify as femme (lipstick)! Their goal is to increase visibility and sisterhood within the femme community. Femme and Proud – we want to hear from you! How do you express your femme power in a patriarchal world? Do you feel invisible, disempowered? Is all this femme/butch talk much ado about nothing? Come on Fierce Femmes – let’s here you roar!!Okay Femmes Speak –Up Support-because Silence is not an OPTION!

Showmanship is the best description of jazz drummer Paula Hampton. The Middletown, Ohio native arrived in New York in the late 1960s and what was meant as a short visit turned into the rest of her life. Pianist Jill McManus’ Jazz Sisters hired her quickly, and Paula remained with them through the mid-1970s. She joined Sandra Reeves-Phillips on The Late Great Ladies of Jazz & Blues Europe and Africa tour. When the band returned to the U.S., Paula and pianist Lillette Jenkins stayed behind to perform in Bern, Switzerland for three weeks. Stateside, Paula joined the great Dakota Staton for 5 years. She performed from with The Hampton Family Orchestra, lead by her mother, Aletra Hampton, featuring her uncle, Slide Hampton and aunt, Dawn Hampton. With jazz pianist Bertha Hope, Paula formed Jazzberry Jam! with vocalist Pat Spann and bassist, Carline Ray. Jazzberry Jam! performed internationally for 15 years. They performed at the 1998 Child of the Sun Festival in Lakeland, Florida. The documentary film, Les Femmes du Jazz, featured Jazzberry Jam! and won the Best Documentary Award at France’s Bairritz Film Festival (FIPA) in 2000. Bertha, Paula, and Carline received the Mary Lou Williams Women In Jazz Award at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center in 2005. In 2006, Jazzberry Jam! provided the live music for the well-received documentary, Been Rich All My Life, which chronicled the historically rich lives of Harlem’s famed former showgirls, The Silver Belles. The Jazz Foundation of America keeps Paula fairly busy performing and she works with other musicians as well.

The question was raised on a FB post that I found quite interesting. Person states that he understood the whole gay/Lesbian thing but didn't understand how you claim to love the same sex but is attracted to someone who looks and dress like the opposite sex. Does clothes really define a gender? And is the world really that closeted to sexuality as a whole??? Let's talk about it y'all....we would love to hear from you!
