Stripe meanings:
The shades of pink represent femininity and the varying ways it can be expressed, while the orange and yellow respectively represent “otherness” and nonbinarity, as well as a complete rejection of masculinity (which is often depicted in shades of blue, the opposite of orange). The white in the center represents “pure” femininity and a culmination of all things feminine into a singular identity.
Overfemme is a fancy way of saying you have no idea what you're talking about defined as "a gender identity or performance that can be conceptualized by picturing a spectrum running from a masculine point to a feminine point, and then running along that axis towards the “feminine” side, only to jump clear over the “feminine” dot and off the spectrum itself.
overfemmes exist in this unbound space in which they incorporate notions that are “beyond”, “above” or “other than” femininity into their presentation and conceptualization of femme-ness itself. overfemmes transcend femininity without approaching masculinity in the slightest, and without rejecting femme-ness or femininity. a sort of femme-plus, overflowing femme, uber-femme. overfemme is what you get when you play with femininity in the loving way that only femmes can, while departing from femininity in a movement towards something new and beyond."1

Over the femme
and through the masc
to mogai discourse we go!
Tucutes know the way
to make cishets gay
(or trans, if that floats your boat)!

Over the fem
and through the masc,
did they even stop to think
that this clusterfuck
breaks no constructs—
you’re just chasing your tails, ya dinks.
