I dunno, I think it's some where between Androgynous and Stud.... I dunno though, that's what I always assumed.

Wiki says: A soft butch or stem (stud-fem) is a woman who exhibits some stereotypical butch and lesbian traits without fitting the masculine stereotype associated with butch lesbians. These traits may or may not include short hair, clothing that was designed for men, and masculine mannerisms and behaviors. Soft butches generally appear androgynous, rather than adhering to strictly feminine or masculine norms and gender identities. In the spectrum of gender expression among lesbians, a soft butch lies closer to a butch lesbian than to a lipstick lesbian.

at school that happens to me all the time. bi-curious, straights, and gays (in the closet) come to me and ask me all about being gay, because im out of the closet. and the straight girls constantly ask how do lesbians do it... im still a virgin so its kind of annoring.
