An interesting femme phenomenon of late
I have been following blogs and podcasts of several queer femmes for some time.
I have also noticed a curious trend in recent months: many of them are changing their names to that of a plant.
A femme became Yarrow somewhere, then another femme became Poplar elsewhere.
It's not like there has been any kind of coordination; it is almost as if this is happening spontaneously.
A renegade thexlogian, originally trained in Evangelical Protestant theological background, but along the way evolved through ecofeminism, queer and/or feminist thexlogy, liberation thexlogy, Catholic social teachings, and New Thought thexlogy. The Amaranthine Sacrarium is a project to build a supportive community of faith and culture-making for and by queer, neurodiverse, and/or non-binary femmes. Currently working on M.Div. Research interests: history of female leadership and evolution of its thexlogy and praxis in the U.S., especially in the context of contemporary social and political trends.
