Literally translates to "King Oedipus."

A greek tragedy from the greats. The story of a king whose fate is to kill his father and marry his mother.

Yes, those are true, but Oedipus Rex is more widely known as the controversial passage of famous Doors song The End.
Oedipus Rex
Song:
The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on.
He took a face from the ancient gallery and he walked on down the hall.
First he went into the room where his sister lived, and then he paid a visit to his brother, and then he walked on down the hall.
And he came to a door, and he looked inside. Father? Yes, son? I want to kill you. Mother? I want to F*CK YOU!!!

Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

A euphemism for motherfucker, along the lines of sugar honey iced tea, since Oedipus literally was a mother fucker (and a father killer).
