A stone butch is a lesbian displaying female butchness or masculinity. Stone butches usually do not like to be sexually touched genitally by their partners; however, they still provide their partners with sexual gratification, and often experience pleasure themselves in doing so. A Stone butch woman is also receptive to receiving sexual pleasure from her female partner in different ways as well.
The term was popularized by Leslie Feinberg in Stone Butch Blues, a 1993 novel describing the tribulations of being a stone butch woman. At the end of the novel the protagonist ultimately settles the battle between her gender identity and sexual orientation by claiming the autonomy to identify however she wishes.
