What is the difference between 12 gauge and 14 gauge spokes? And what does double butted mean?

Boobies.

i think 14 and 12 gauge are nipple sizes and double butted spokes are stronger than normal spokes

12 gauge is bigger then 14 guage. the lower the number the bigger the spoke width gets.
most bikes use 14-15 guage sized spokes.
