952: To address the concerns raised in the PSD meeting for list 1603: In re-submitting the proposal, all literature found states that asexuality is a sexual orientation. Asexuality is defined by a lack of sexual attraction but not necessarily by a lack of sexual behavior. Sex was suggested as a BT; however, because Asexuality is defined as a sexual orientation, not a behavior, we used the model of Homosexuality to determine that the BT Sexual orientation is a better fit. The suggestion of qualifying the term to distinguish from Asexuality in plants or other animals is a good one and has been done.

Originally it was a derogatory label for a masculine or butch woman, and this usage still exists. However, it has also been reappropriated as a positive term implying assertiveness and toughness, or simply as a neutral synonym for lesbian. … In the late 20th and early 21st century, the term was reclaimed by many lesbians. Examples in the culture include the comic strip “Dykes to Watch out For” and the traditional Dykes on Bikes that lead pride parades. Matters came to a head when the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied lesbian motorcycle group Dykes on Bikes a trademark for its name, on the grounds that “dyke” was an offensive word. In 2005, after a prolonged court battle involving testimony on the word’s changing role in the lesbian community, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board permitted the group to register its name.)
