Processing Information

The term Dyke has historically been used as a slur. For this archival object it is the title of a publication and therefore will not be removed. The Homosaurus, an international linked data vocabulary of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) terms, defines the term as "A largely reclaimed slur common in the U.S. that may be used to refer to lesbians who embrace a masculine style of presentation or lesbian political activists in general; only use for individuals who self-identify as dykes." The GW SCRC recognizes that this terminology may be offensive to some.
