Butch and femme

Butch and femme are LGBT terms describing, respectively, masculine and feminine traits, behaviors, styles, expressions, self-perception and so on. They are often used in the lesbian, bisexual and gay subcultures. A similar term, en femme, is also frequently used in the crossdressing community.

Butch and femme can sometimes be used to categorize identities of gay or lesbian individuals in terms that are recognized as analogous to (though not derivative from) heterosexual gender roles, with butch representing the traditionally masculine counterpart (the male role in heterosexual couples) and femme the traditionally feminine role (the female role in heterosexual couples). While some gay or lesbian couples may comprise a butch-identified individual and a femme-identified individual, not all gays or lesbians identify as "butch" or "femme." Lesbian relationships do not require these two identities to comprise them, and many lesbian individuals and couples cannot be described accurately in these terms.

Dodge La Femme

The La Femme's Raison D'ĂȘtre stemmed from Chrysler's marketing department's observation that more and more women were taking interest in automobiles during the 1950s, and that women’s opinions on which color car to buy was becoming part of the decision making process for couples buying an automobile. The La Femme was an attempt to gain a foothold in the women's automobile market.

The La Femme concept was based upon two Chrysler show cars from the 1954 season. Named Le Comte, and La Comtesse, each was built from a Chrysler Newport hardtop body, and each was given a clear plastic roof over the entire passenger compartment. While the Le Comte was designed using masculine colors, the La Comtesse was painted "Dusty Rose" and "Pigeon Grey" in order to convey femininity. Favorable responses encouraged Chrysler to pursue the La Comtesse concept.
