** Downplayed with Poussey. She is a lesbian and her looks — even by prison standards — and mannerisms are conventionally unfeminine, but she still appears rather androgynous than butch and apparently doesn't identify as a latter.

** To a lesser extent, "Crazy Eyes" (more weird than butch), Nicky (butch enough, but looking like Creator/NatashaLyonne tones down the effect) and Poussey (more boyish than mannish) also exemplify this trope, by being lesbian and distinctively unfeminine even by prison standards. One of the [=COs=] even explicitly calls "Crazy Eyes" this trope, with great distaste.

* Big Boo in ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack''. She refers to herself as a "diesel dyke" and has "Butch" helpfully tattooed on her arm. She seems to be in high demand given her many conquests throughout the show.

* "Big Boo" in the Netflix original series ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' looks and acts every bit like this stereotype. To a lesser extent, "Crazy Eyes" (more weird than butch), Nicky (butch enough, but looking like Creator/NatashaLyonne tones down the effect) and Poussey (more boyish than mannish) also exemplify this trope, by being lesbian and distinctively unfeminine even by prison standards.

* Middle and Regular Allison from ComicBook/FunHome's musical adaption. Despite being the same person, both fit the trope. Middle Allison has a pixie haircut with male clothing while her 43 year old self has a shorter haircut and wears baggy male jeans and a male polo top. In both the book and musical, Allison was forced into feminine clothing by her overly obsessive father Bruce, but after seeing a butch delivery woman at a diner, she began to feel more comfortable with herself.

Usually the contrasting counterpart to the LipstickLesbian, the Butch Lesbian is typically clad in heavy boots, jeans, plain t-shirts and other distinctly un-feminine attire. She'll have a [[BoyishShortHair short haircut]] and [[WrenchWench a job as a mechanic]], and often be [[OneHeadTaller taller]] and bulkier than her femme counterpart, though a lanky or even [[TheNapoleon petite]] build is not unheard of. Breast-binding is optional. She will also probably be the one who gets vocal about gay rights, persecution, [[StrawFeminist women's rights]], and the MaleGaze. She may also be [[LesbianJock quite sporty]]. On many occasions, they can be [[ViewerGenderConfusion mistaken for men]] (which results in the butch lesbian punching that person).

* Alex Danvers in ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}''. She's tough-as-nails and violent, wears her hair in a short, chin-length bob, and if she's not wearing tactical gear, she's wearing black leather jackets, flannel, and jeans. She also loathes heels, is the {{Tomboy}} to her sister Kara's GirlyGirl, and goes through a [[ComingOutStory coming-out arc]] where she comes to terms with her homosexuality in season 2. Her sense of style and personality is the reason why some viewers suspected that she was gay in season 1 before it later became official.
