Depends on the situation. I am never called dyke, I get called "sir"'.
Being male and of not even remotely Dutch ancestry, no.
Not if my name was dyke.......how would a guy like to be called **** Van Dyke?
nope. I've been called dyke and butch growing up. I'm not a lesbian.
No, because no one's ever called me that.
I wouldn't know
I would be offended, because I am very feminine. I can't see insulting anyone by name-calling. I think it's a lot of high school juvenile bullcrap.
At least you put yourself above it. Some people mature early, and some don't ever mature! : )
I wouldn't be offended if someone called me that, as I'm male. Having said that, I get offended for other people when I hear someone say it.
Yes, because that's generally how it's been meant when I've heard it used.
I call myself one sometimes. But only when someone makes a disparaging comment about gays. I use the shock of calling myself that (or a f*ggot) to illustrate my extreme displeasure at their comment. It's far more useful in person as when punctuated by a hard glare and snappy head **** usually serves to fix their attitude. And if not...Well. <br />
Let's just say there's more than one reason why my boots are so scuffed up.
I think it is rude, disrespectful and ugly ( i am hetero") A dyke is a structure built of earth (i think)+ used to keep back the sea in Holland.
depends on the context if it is another lesbian using that term it is seldom offensive much like afro americans using the n word on each other
Nope. Really don't care. Got asked if I was one in eighth grade. Brushed it off, because I could probably score hotter girls than he could.
I do not like that word at all but I don't like labels of any kind so it's just the way I am.
