Word of the Gay: "Dyke Out"

"Dyke out" is a term for when a lesbian puts on her butchest outfit for a night out. The slang can also refer to two heterosexual women who get drunk and make out.

And this leaves femme dykes where? Oh, I remember. Invisible.

I think the term can be inclusive of all dykes regardless of whether they are masculine or femme.

The term can be inclusive. So why is the definition exclusive?

How is it exclusive? "Dyking it out" is when women put on their most masculine attire, one can identify or present as butch or femme, but this term refers to butch clothing.

When two heterosexual women make out, I have to question just how hetero they are, drunk or not.

Anonymous, when two women who identify as heterosexual make out, they are still 100% heterosexual until they declare otherwise. Even if they have sex, this is still the case. It is not up to anyone else to label or characterize someone without consulting them.
