Schooling on ‘D-slur’ takes to TikTok and social media

To honor Pride Month 2021, people on TikTok are teaching others why using the D-Slur is offensive.

Due to Covid, the Pride celebrations will be a little different this year as many of the biggest parades and events in the world cannot take place.

However, Pride Month is still celebrated on social media, especially on TikTok, where people educate others about derogatory homophobic slurs.

Why the insult is an offensive and defamatory term

“Dyke” is a derogatory and homophobic term used to describe a male or “butch” woman.

It is believed to have developed from the word ‘bulldyke’ which dates to the end of the 19th century.

The term was then shortened to “dike” and took on an insulting and insulting meaning.

According to GLAAD, an American media watchdog founded to protest defamatory reporting on LGBT people, “Dyke” is “defamatory language” that “should be the same as that used for vulgar epithets referring to target other groups “.

TikTok users advise against using the D-Slur

On TikTok, a number of people have started a movement to discourage people from using the D-Slur on social media.

Social media users teach others about the derogatory nature of homophobic abuse, claiming that they are not “just words” and can hurt people.

TikTok users largely agree that it is rude to say the D-Slur unless you identify yourself as “lesbian”.

Someone named @urnotsolocalspaz on TikTok said in a video, “Kind reminder, you can’t say the D-Slur unless you’re a lesbian or bi.”

The clip received a huge 356,000 likes and received a lot of support.

If you are describing a homosexual woman, “lesbian” is the correct term, and all other slang terms can be considered defamatory.
