Perhaps they should try 'cunnilingus-lovin' cyclists'

by Jeremy Hooper

    The San Francisco Women's Motorcycle Contingent is fighting the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the right to use the name "Dykes on Bikes," a term the government office deems too vulgar to trademark. Defenders of the cycling ladies say the decision should be based on how the term is perceived by the community in which it's used, though the attorney representing the trademark office has determined that the phrase can still be degrading even if "a certain segment of a disparaged group has adopted the term.''

Though somehow, the offensive, "ex-gay"-supporting trademark "Ben Gay" managed to beat the system
