I Think Someone Called Me a Dyke Today....

Not really sure. I was passing this kid in the hallway when I was on my way to choir and I heard this rather sinister mutter, "Dyke" (or something VERY similar to it) come from him. I don't know him, and I didn't see his face. There wasn't anyone next to him on his left and I was on his right, so if that is what he said, it was probably addressed to me....

It didn't really bother me, but I'm a little weirded out. I've never actually been called a dyke before. Not to my face anyway (or in passing in the hallway). It kind of surprised me.

Maybe I just fit the stereotype better now that my hair is short.

My friend always calls me a crazy little dyke,but the way he does it is more funny than anything else.I'm not really sure how I would take it if someone I didn't know said it to me though.

it's happened

it's happened to me before. i was in detention and as we were walking out the door, some chick behind me was talking to her friend and said, "she's totally a dyke, just look at her." ya. i didn't really know how to react, so i just kept walking.
