I'm more than slightly annoyed at the actions of these students and their collective hissy fit over one word that lesbians have been trying to own for years. I am a dyke. "Dyke" is part of who I am. I gain strength from it, and when I get called "dyke" in the street, I don't mind, because I own it.
