So I finally came up with something I like. The hanky code says black and white stripes mean kissing. Since I only wanna kiss girls, I did black and pink stripes. :) the black sparkle polish on the other nails is just pretty.
Now to wave my hands around until someone recognizes it. Or asks.
So even though it’s been said that this painting the ring finger isn’t ACTUALLY always a femme flagging technique after all I’m going to use it that way cause why not as a queer femme I’m invisible anyway unless I beat people with clue-by-fours (though here’s a bunch of femme flagging techniques). I did my shellac with a colour I thought would be more fuchsia (spanking) but turned out red (fisting) both of which I top and bottom for so fair enough. All other nails are silver rainbow glitter, which apparently means starfucker/celebrity. ;)
Looking further into all this however I’m totally confused because I’m reading all sorts of colour listings that aren’t in the expanded hanky list- but there’s no formal list, it seems like people are just making things up individually (kind of maybe missing the point of flagging, which is so that you can express mutual interest and start a negotiation, right…?)
I’m such a Capricorn. Hah.
Flagging I’m interested in:
-fuck the patriarchy
-femme for femme
-blue apparently stands for survivor and not any of the things I thought blue stood for?
Tumblr femmes, please help me. I don’t want to flag for something I’m not intending, because that feels appropriative. Is it just “make up your own”, cause then I’ll stick with the traditional expanded code.
