Dyke also known as "Robo Lesbians" is a term often used in the Midlands area of England, a play on the original meaning of Dyke meaning "Lesbian" in that Dykes are often girls that act as heterosexuals but seem to pride themselves on wearing all of the same style or brand of clothes and using all of the same dyke-like lingo. Dyke groups normally form when a group of girls have recently all broken up with their boyfriends, who they all collectively hate for totally inane and irrellevant reasons.

Dykes often appear to be flatchested (rarely having a cup size larger then C), they stick together in groups, often to comment on what people are wearing (or what they should be wearing). They often dress in the same clothes and believe men are the inferior gender, unless they are really handsome/buff (or easy). They listen to the worst of chart Music (Lady Gaga, La Roux, Florence and the Machine) and they are one of few reasons why the hideous industry of Music is making any money at all.

Slaves to pop-culture, they have to indivudality whatsoever, and will change their personalities to fit the stereotypes of pop-culture at the time.

To emphasise completely normal points they use words like "actually" and "can you (actually) not?".
"Dyke 1: I'm really thirsty"
"Dyke 2: Yeah, me too, so thirsty"
"Dyke 3: I'd really love a drink too"
"Dyke 4: Wanna go get a drink?"
"Dyke 5: Lets actually get a drink"
"Dyke 6: Yeah, I'm parched, lets 'roll'"

A word used to refer to Lesbians. Originally meant to be a slur, it has been "reclaimed" by many Lesbians who might use it to identify themselves of other Lesbians. It is considered rude to use the word "Dyke" unless you self-identify as one.

A type of water-stopping dam.
The dyke has a leak, the river will burst through!

A word to descibe lesbians (women who prefer women). Frequently used by gay women but straight people tend to associate "dyke" with something bad/offencive.

* It does NOT mean we can't find men... nor does it mean that we're BUTCH/masculine.
"Omg, is she really a dyke?"

"How dare you think I'm straight! I'm a DYKE, you idiot!!"

Although originally a derogatory term for lesbians, it is now often used with pride by lesbians themselves, especially the younger and hipper lesbian crowd. Some lesbians (especially older or super-sensitive ones) still object to the term, but it is becoming increasingly common and mainsteam (at least within the gay community), with events such as "Dyke Nights" or "Dyke Marches" being held around the country. In fact some dykes resent being called a lesbian, as they feel it is much less cool than being called a dyke.

Note: Dyke with a "y" is a lesbian. Dike with an "i" is for damming water.
Example: Hey, Amanda, are you going to the Pride March this weekend?

Hell ya! And I am definitely not missing the Dyke March. Sarah and her girlfriend are riding in the Dykes on Bikes contigent.

n. 20th century. At first derogatory, it has become a word of pride used by lesbians. Possible origin from the last sylible in hermaphrodite or perhaps from its British meaning of "female genitals." A dyke is a ditch.
