Are you a "gold star"?

ElleBee ElleBee
I agree about the elitist bit. Though, I think this is mostly a tongue in cheek question.

Mostly because I think sexuality if fluid and ever changing and its not like I am a 'gold star' lesbian because I didn't date men. I just never found any I wanted to have sex with. I dated men. I loved men. I still love men. I fell in love with a woman.

But, like I said, I think this question and whole 'gold star' thing is mostly for a laugh. I have heard, also, of lesbians who won't date anyone but 'gold star' lesbians. And I've also heard of lesbian's that won't date bisexuals. I think that's sad. You never know who you're missing out on loving.

I love women and I love men. I'm allowed to!!! So hell no.

Although it seems to be almost a requirement these days, in terms of my dating pool whatever that is.

I think they used this term in an episode of the L Word (if I'm remembering correctly). That's the only time I've heard it used.

I'm queer, but I feel a bit like I'm a bad queer, haha. I've had the same boyfriend for years, and he's the only person I've ever been with. Is there an opposite to the gold star?

I think some people take the "gold star" concept too far. You're not better than anyone else because of who you have or have not fucked.

I'm bisexual, so that would be a big no.

Yeah, exactly! There's kind of some implicit shaming of bi/pan people in the whole concept, too.

I thought it said a gold star was someone who wouldn't have sex with the sex they're attracted to. I was so confused.

HERE HERE!

This is a good term for me. Though, not every relationship has been queer.. All the sex I've had, was, though.

Yup I agree as well Not every one knows how they feel, or who they truely are and Doesnt understand their place in the world when all they have ever known is that "woman are ment to be with men." But to find out latter in life thats not how they feel and are suck. That doesnt make them any less of a person or any less gay than any one else.

A gold star, for those of you who don't know, is a person who identifies as homosexual (gay or lesbian) who has never had sex with someone of the opposite sex and does not intend to. Just curious how many are out there!

I tried a girl once in a three way. It was "meh", but it confirmed things for me. She was my friend beforehand, knew it was just a fling, I made it clear it wasn't a change in our relationship (she agreed with this), and we were still friends and unchanged by the experience.

So Almost gold star, just decided to "try it once" to clear my head and make sure.

I don't mind a penis-like object as long as it isn't a real one. I'd never sleep with a man.

Yes, I hate this term so much. I'm queer but no one sees me as such if I'm holding hands with a man.

Agreed there...everyone has a different coming out story. The only gold stars I've ever known came out in their mid-teens. Not all of us could be so lucky to have figured it out then and there at that point in time.
