Yeah what Keiseki said . I think everyone want to show there own personality though there style. Lipstick lesbians are the opposite of butch lesbians. Girls who want to act like glam girls but still date other girls.

"femme/lipstick" and "butch/tomboy" are attempts by people to heterosexualize female-female relationships, but labeling one half of a female pair as feminine and the other as masculine. they fulfill certain 'gender roles' and dress accordingly so that others may discern the difference.

I don't think thats totally true really. You can get girls who like to look fem but also still be the boss in a relationship. I'm also guessing you can get girls who like to look tomboyish but still like being fem.

Its like saying that if your goth you have to be depressed all the time and wear black .

well of course; looks do not translate to personality

however, the fact that we label people as either one or the other is attempting to conform people to one or hte other. it's rather removed from teh goth thing i feel. it's, one dresses more feminine, so they are labelled a "femme" and assumed to be more submissive. if they are not submissive, then they "look like a femme", but that also assumes that femme behavior is submissive

Let's just leave it at girly girls who like girly girls. All this politics is making me rage XP

AFAIK lipstick lesbian refers to a femme who likes femmes. Also in my mind it only refers to appearance, not sexual (or otherwise) behaviour. In which case I'm more familiar with Top/Bottom, but one could argue that is strictly sexual. If we're talking about other general behaviour between two partners, then it's more along the lines of "so who wears the metaphorical pants?" and the like.
