  • While preparing for our 20s/30s era party, I came across an article alluding to the history of ***** women's labels. Where did all our labels come from? A lot of ******* slang developed in women's prisons in the 20s and spread to other areas of society. What would you go by back then? Comment below if you identify with any ;) 20s: **** Bulldyke Bull dagger Gay Drag 30s: ***** Bird Lavender Sil (a ******* silly in love with another) Trapeze Artist (a woman who goes...down) Butch Terms: Mantee Jockey Daddy Poppa Husband Top Sergeant Femme Terms: Mamma Wife ***** ( a middle class woman who strayed into lesbianism once in a while)
