Nah you identify as however you want to identify. That's why a lot of people also prefer to label themselves as 'queer' rather than gay or bi or lesbian. Basically it's whatever you feel fits you, or whatever you are most comfortable with.

Personally my preferred label is 'dyke' with lesbian as my second. Technically there isn't really a difference in the definition but more the feel of the word.

Hi

Gay Jedi on Trask Ulgo EU. Some good comments going on here and yeah just signing in to give a big smile to the community at large throughout the game.

Have a nice guild, got a few gays, mostly breeders though but you know what, it's just a great group of people I enjoy RP with. Say hi if you want to, friend me, hate me, am on enjin as Crystarr.

Have fun.

I might just be ignorant, but I thought "dyke" was considered derogatory.

That depends on who is saying it and how. Much as gay men will sometimes refer to themselves as **** or queens or flamers some gay women refer to themselves as dykes.

You see it in many sub-cultures and minorities, the reclaiming of words that were used in a derogatory fashion.

I like the term dyke because to me it feels a little bit butch and a little bit playful and a little bit in your face, whereas lesbian feels too clinical to me.

I wonder how it would have turned out had it been an all-straight guild refusing to include GLBT...

I think I understand.

You definitely have a point about the word "lesbian." Very official, almost scientific. In my mind it's similar to referring to a girl as simply "female," and a guy as simply "male." While lesbian can be technically and literally accurate, "dyke" is much more specific and to the point.

I hope the OP is able to increase game enjoyment by making friends with like minded players the same as any community would.

I prefer '******' but I think 'trannie' is ghastly.

Oh, oops. it won't let me say the word I prefer, which I find innocuous, but will let me say 'trannie' which has all kinds of nasty, ignorant, bigotted connotations.

How odd.
