This week, we discuss those persistent cultural myths and urban legends that we’ve all been warned about. Some folks call them Old Wives’ Tales, but we prefer to think of them as Old Dykes’ Tales.
Whether the story is about lesbians having longer ring fingers than index fingers, the terrifying effects of cracking knuckles or mixing Pop Rocks with soda, or the alleged good luck you’ll get if a bird poops on your head, we dig deep to find the truth about these legends. We may just invent a few new ones along the way.
We realize that many of our myths originate in the U.S., so if you can share any from other parts of the world (or if you’ve made up any of your own) feel free to chime in!
