11 Types Of Lesbians

You’re Most Likely To Meet IRL

A handy guide to common lesbian (stereo)types.




Even if you aren’t a lesbian you’ve probably heard people use descriptors like “power lesbian” or “baby dyke”. Sure, you might have an inkling of what each word means, but when taken as a whole you have no clue what those in question are talking about. Plus, as a straight person, it keep feel really disrespectful to start using words like this at all, let alone with no understanding of what we’re actually saying.

Prepare to be illuminated. 

Consider this the scene in the high school movie where the new student gets a tour of the cafeteria and learns the who’s who of their new environment. Let me act as the school’s veteran pupil, as I guide you through the trenches, introducing you to the 11 types of lesbians you’re the most likely to meet, and if you’re lucky, possibly someday have sex with.

Remember, this list is a broad generalization. Every person is different, we can’t (and shouldn’t) put everyone in an easy-to-understand box. This is more of a fun and sort of silly way in which lesbians refer to one another, than some actual, real-life categorization system.

If you don’t know how to identify a person, talk to that person and find out what THEY are the most comfortable with. And know that every person is more than just a label.

  1. I had my first lesbian girlfriend dyke. And I had my first relationship with a butch. I was a tomboy when a was a teen. I felt like a boy for half of my life but later I discovered a very feminine aspect of myself and became bisexual.
