* DestructiveRomance: One of the main sources of the protagonist's permanent foul mood is that she got her heart broken by her first serious Girlfriend. First the Girlfriend was unfaithful, sleeping with another woman without asking for an open relationship first. When discovered, she declares open relationship retroactively, and Butchy accepts it on a theoretical level. On a emotional level, she obviously never got over it.

* PrideParade: Butchy tend to hate the parades because they are inclusive. (She's a bitter and hateful lesbian who resents bisexuals, transgender people, lesbians who don't hate men, men of any orientation, and so on. All Played For Laughs.) And yet, even she grows to reluctantly enjoy them.

* YouAreWhatYouHate: Butchy hates bigots, but quite frankly she ''is'' a bigot. Mostly against other lesbians, who she hates for not being as maladjusted as herself. One of her targets for this is the author herself (who exists as a semi-character inside the comic). Also, she hate bisexuals, but in one of the episodes, she has a crush on a gay guy.

* CategoryTraitor: Butchy is very quick to brand other women as GenderTraitor for not sharing her misandry (hatred & prejudice against men).

* HetIsEw: From Butchy's point of view.


* BadassGay: Butchy is one... in her daydreams.


* AggressiveCategorism: Butchy do this all the time, living in her own unhealthy little world where all men (and all heterosexual women) are total {{Jerkass}}es. The only time she managed to see a guy for the nice person he really is, she refused to see that he's male.

* SourPrudes: Butchy never seems to quit whining about supposedly prudish women, mostly because she's frustrated that they won't leave their boyfriends and start having sex with ''her'' instead. Ironically, it's hinted that Butchy herself has been quite the SourPrudes to her previous girlfriends (only hinted, since the stories are all told from [[UnreliableNarrator her biased perspective]] where everything was always their fault and never hers) .

* CaptainErsatz: Butchy is a homosexual version of [[ComicBook/BitchyBitch Midge]]. However, she is ''not'' an AlternateSelf of Midge: They exist in the same world - and yes, they ''do'' hate each other. Of course they do.

* LipstickLesbian: Butchy hates them. Because they are "traitors". Because they "[[RealWomenNeverWearDresses are not real lesbians]]". And most importantly because they won't sleep with her, although she'd never admit that this is part of the problem.

* TroubledSympatheticBigot: Butchy is often portrayed this way, unlike her more genuinely unsympathetic counterpart [[ComicBook/BitchyBitch Midge]].
* WindmillCrusader: ComicBook/BitchyButch is infamous for this among her fellow LGBTQ activists. She's paranoid about men (oppressors all of them!) and heterosexual women (traitors!) as well as lesbians (potential traitors, "not real", or whatever), and see [[HeteronormativeCrusader the religious right]] in every shadow.

* AuthorAvatar: The author herself makes guest appearances as a character in the comic. Sometimes as narrator, and sometimes bickering with the main character.
* BadassGay: Butchy is one... in her daydreams.
* ButchLesbian: The protagonist's main problem is that she limits herself to this stereotype.
* CaptainErsatz: Butchy is a homosexual version of [[BitchyBitch Midge]]. However, she is ''not'' an AlternateSelf of Midge: They exist in the same world - and yes, they ''do'' hate each other. Of course they do.
* CategorismAsAPhobia: Butchy is portrayed as suffering from severe heterophobia to the point that she can hardly take a walk outdoors because she freaks out over seeing people being openly heterosexual.
* CategoryTraitor: Butchy is very quick to brand other women as GenderTraitor for not sharing her misandry (hatred & prejudice against men).
* CrapsackWorld: The narrative portrays the world this way... or is it just that it's the world seen through the eyes of a bitter bitchy bitch?
* DestructiveRomance: One of the main sources of the protagonist's permanent foul mood is that she got her heart broken by her first serious Girlfriend. First the Girlfriend was unfaithful, sleeping with another woman without asking for an open relationship first. When discovered, she declares open relationship retroactively, and Butchy accepts it on a theoretical level. On a emotional level, she obviously never got over it.
* FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence: This trope is a stock complaint from various versions of TheFundamentalist, feeling oppressed by the existence of Atheists and Gays and so on. Even when the Atheists and Gays are simply minding their own business. ''Especially'' then, actually, since they thus send the heretical political message that they somehow deserve to exist.
** We also have butchy herself, with these feelings against men and heterosexuals.
* HeteronormativeCrusader: They are ''everywhere''. (But only some of them are real - others are {{Windmill}}s in Butchy's own mind.)
* HetIsEw: From Butchy's point of view.
* InternalizedCategorism: The heroine learned in her teens that she's a horrible person, and took it to heart. As an adult, she doesn't believe in that stuff anymore, but it's obvious that she still has a lot of self-hatred inside her and that her aggressive attitude is partly an overcompensation for this.
* LipstickLesbian: Butchy hates them. Because they are "traitors". Because they "[[RealWomenNeverWearDresses are not real lesbians]]". And most importantly because they won't sleep with her, although she'd never admit that this is part of the problem.
* MisanthropeSupreme
* PrideParade: Butchy tend to hate the parades because they are inclusive. (She's a bitter and hateful lesbian who resents bisexuals, transsexuals, lesbians who don't hate men, men of any orientation, and so on. All Played For Laughs.) And yet, even she grows to reluctantly enjoy them.
* RapeAsBackstory[=/=]RapeAndSwitch: Notably averted - Defying the stereotype that homosexuality is caused by ParentalIncest, Butchy was never molested... unlike her heterosexual counterpart Midge.
* SourPrudes: Butchy never seems to quit whining about supposedly prudish women, mostly because she's frustrated that they won't leave their boyfriends and start having sex with ''her'' instead. Ironically, it's hinted that Butchy herself has been quite the SourPrudes to her previous girlfriends (only hinted, since the stories are all told from [[UnreliableNarrator her biased perspective]] where everything was always their fault and never hers) .

She's paranoid about men (oppressors all of them!) and heterosexual women (traitors!) as well as lesbians (potential traitors, "not real", or whatever), and see [[HeteronormativeCrusader the religious right]] in every shadow.
* WindmillPolitical: In Butchy's somewhat unhealthy mind, pretty much everyone is either a HeteronormativeCrusader or a traitor who has given in to them. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Ironically]], this paranoia makes her narrow-minded and effectively a bit of a HeteronormativeCrusader herself.
* YouAreWhatYouHate: Butchy hates bigots, but quite frankly she ''is'' a bigot. Mostly against other lesbians, who she hates for not being as maladjusted as herself. One of her targets for this is the author herself (who exists as a semi-character inside the comic). Also, she hate bisexuals, but in one of the episodes, she has a crush on a gay guy.
