For those of you that don’t know, a “Gold Star” lesbian is one that has never been with a man. Many Gold Stars wear this as a badge of honor.
And I think that’s fucking stupid.
It’s really great that you already knew who you were at a younger age than most of us. Or it might be that you never had the opportunity (I’m sure someone will berate me for that comment). But I can’t stand when a Gold Star acts like they’re some higher class of lesbian just because they’ve never “tainted” themselves by being in heterosexual relationships (etc). Sorry I wasn’t comfortable with my identity until I was out on my own, in college. My bad that I never learned that it was OKAY to be gay, and that it took me longer to say “I don’t care what other people are thinking and saying is right- I like ladies!” I made some mistakes in high school and the beginning of college, until I finally found my way to being comfortable the way I am. And that doesn’t make me any less of a person, just because I was confused at one point. It definitely doesn’t make you any better of a person to rub your Gold Star status in the face of any lesbian that ever questioned her sexuality. That shit’s not cool, man.
Anybody else experience these girls?
