    “I don’t have any idea about the myriad obstacles and bliss in a dyke’s daily life.” Probably start by not calling us dykes.

      My apologies for upsetting you. It is a term that is favored by the lesbians I know, and therefore I use it out of respect for them.

        I’ve been a dyke for twenty-five years, and I’ve never met one who liked being called a dyke by a stranger who wasn’t a lesbian. Don’t use it without permission, end of.
