Historic Context note
The term Dyke has historically been used as a slur. This folder title was generated by the creator of the materials and is not subject to editing as it is often historically relevant to know what terminology was used by the creator of archives. 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.
