Town Girls is a [[{{Ensembles}} trio]] of characters, [[AlwaysFemale either female or for girls]], consisting of [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl one who is butch, one who is femme]] and one who is neither. Butch and femme are lesbian identities for gender expression, in this case it is referring to masculinity displayed by a female beyond what would be considered typical of a {{tomboy}} and femininity beyond what would be considered typical of the GirlyGirl. The femme one is like a fashionable uptown girl. The one who is neither butch nor femme is like a StreetSmart girl from down town. The butch one is like someone whose rude behavior could be excused by saying that she's from out of town -- maybe a CountryMouse. Thus the Town Girls are from uptown, down town and out of town. Bonus points if the geography is literal.

The one who is neither butch nor femme is usually the smart, friendly and well-intentioned GirlNextDoor. She can also be more free-spirited, either [[CloudCuckooLander with her mind]] or [[ReallyGetsAround her body]]. The butch character is likely a tough chick but might be more of a FemmeFatale or be [[MyGirlIsASlut sexually aggressive]]. The Femme one is either [[SpoiledBrat high-maintenance]], [[TheMistress romantically assertive]] or neither.

If they're love interests then the easiest one to be with will be the middle one like Betty in BettyAndVeronica. Might overlap with BeautyBrainsAndBrawn or BlondeBrunetteRedhead. An exaggerated example would include a PrincessClassic, HotLibrarian, and ButchLesbian.

Note that they're always listed as femme, neither, butch.

Rei is herself the neither to Ami's femme and Makoto's butch.
