FYI: bull dyke is a derogatory term that is a reference to Ms. O'Donnell's ***uality. It is a name that is used ignorantly as a reference to a group of people. Author Joan Nestle states very eloquently, and better than I can "the most dehumanizing taunt suspicious hetero***uals hurled at me was ‘bull dyke.’ It was filled with their conception of what a lesbian was like—an ugly, aggressive animal.” The term is offensive, disparaging, even vulgar to lesbians, and anyone with a modicum of decency.
To refer to someone as a bull-dyke, is not a opinion any more than referring to someone of the African-American race with a certain disgusting term is an opinion. It is a foul mouthed, non-sensical comment of the poorly educated.
Neither a woman, nor a lesbian, I am offended, as many are, by the language. It is racist, it is offensive.
My comment about Mike spoke to his behavior, and doesn't speak disparagingly to a group of people .
