I was talking to a  roommate about the anti-capitalist femme caucus that happened at the femme conference and how that space ended up being the highlight of the conference for me and I wanted to somehow bring that space home. And they responded with: ‘There’s lots of anti-capitalist work going on in the city that people of lots of different genders are involved in.’

OK, true, but like really? Really? Was that the point? I feel like that’s not the response I would’ve received if it was a specifically trans-male anti-capitalist working group.

Of course, the space wasn’t perfect (anti-capitalist spaces in general tend to be very white because naming a space specifically anti-capitalist often ends up ignoring the fact that anti-racist work is always already also the work of anti-capitalism) but it was a space where we got to talk about how our femme identities can be mobilized to undermine capitalism, how to adorn/adore without consuming or treating femme as a commodity, and with an acknowledgement of the fact that masculine of center people are often given much more legitimacy in anti-capitalist/anarchist spaces because expressions of femininity are equated with frivolity and consumption. And those talks felt so needed and necessary to me, especially since my relation to capital and consumption has changed drastically since moving to NYC (Mecca of Consumption) and having access to the fast cash of sex work and hearing that well-intentioned but totally missing-the-point point just reaffirmed for me that sometimes femmes need our own fucking spaces.
