Dike, Dyke

There are girls who dress like men who hate being called queer, butch, homo, or dyke. It’s understandable, the first three being offensive. But why should a woman be offended by being called dyke? This is because dyke has become a slang word. Let’s take it back.

We are named after Dike, the Greek goddess of moral justice. Why, I don’t know. But we are goddesses in ourselves. And when we are called butch, homo, fag, we forget that. Be proud. You are a Dike. You are a dyke.
