lindsey (web): Fucking Dyke Bitches [band statement below] – FDB

“The name Fucking Dyke Bitches is a reclamation…. It would be careless of us to not acknowledge that the name remains, as it was first perceived, an anti-gay slander….Our name is not intended to be fun to say. It is not edgy and exciting to us. As language is a complicated thing, we beg our listeners to be fully conscious of the intentions behind their words. Perceiving our bodies as feminine does not mean we should be labeled as girls. Our “crude” band name does not condone usage of the word bitch either. Fucking Dyke Bitches is a statement for queer celebration and a nod at the things we want to see change.”
