Lesbian motorcycle enthusiasts in San Francisco have won their fight to trademark the name "Dykes on Bikes," a lawyer for their group said on Thursday.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had denied applications by the San Francisco Women's Motorcycle Contingent to trademark "Dykes on Bikes," arguing the phrase would be perceived as disparaging to lesbians.

But the National Center for Lesbian Rights and the Brooke Oliver Law Group said the word "dyke" is no longer viewed as derogatory.

"Within the lesbian community that term has been reclaimed as a very positive term that denotes strength and pride and empowerment," said Shannon Minter, a lawyer for the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

dykes on mikes

I'm a Mike and I need a clarification here.

Would a lipstick lesbian (ie pretty lesbo) be a dyke also?

Say for instance if this young lady was found to be strictly lickly

If so then I am endorsing dykes on mikes as an official slogan.

This seems to be catching on like wildfire! I heard the National Association of Gay Male Scooter Riders wants to trademark their slogan and logo...
