The term dyke is a slang term, used as a noun meaning lesbian and as an adjective describing things associated with lesbians. It originated as a homophobic slur for masculine, butch, or androgynous girls or women. Pejorative use of the word still exists, but the term dyke has been reappropriated by lesbians to imply assertiveness and toughness. The origin of the term dyke is still obscure and many theories have been proposed, including the assonance with a ditch, and we pointed out through Queer Ecologies with the wilderness and with the wooden dams called also dykes, that the American beavers builds to hold up food reserve for winter, prevent waters food and protect from predators.
