  1. Depends on how you use it. For example, if you use it to refer to all lesbians in a derogatory way, than yes, definitely , it is insulting. But the word “butch” is an identifier, really, used in the lesbian community to mark the difference between more masculine and more feminine (femme) lesbians. So if you are using it to describe a particular person, then no, it’s probably not insulting.

  3. Butch is used to describe a type of lesbian, and a very common type. It’s a common word. I don’t think it’s insulting.
