I just married my best friend. We ran away to Vegas a month ago, and said "I do" in the Lucky Little Chapel wearing whatever we had thrown into our bags, and toting our 1/2 pound chihuahua along. Two months ago, I had no idea we would be together, let alone married.
Some of the funniest cut footage we have seen! Rachel and Anna do rapid fire questions and give Cheeseburger the tortoise a belly rub!

Question: Gold star lesbian. People take such pride in this term. I am not one but I feel like it's something that I should be, and am ashamed that I am not. Thoughts? Answer: Gold Star Lesbian, let's define what this means before I give you an answer. According to Urban Dictionary, a Gold Star Lesbian is a lesbian that has never slept with a man and categorizes herself as a woman whose preference is women and only sleeps with women.
As a lesbian I have been called a man hater over and over and over. It's becoming a soft spot with me. I don't particularly like men, but that's not due to my sexuality (I don't think). But the stigma of lesbians hating men is something I wasn't aware of until it happened to me. I don't know how to argue my point. I don't know how to stand up for myself. No, I don't like men, I don't find them attractive or appealing or good friends. But I am not a man hater. Help!

The ladies at The Laughing Lesbian were lucky enough to receive a great little blurb from Rachel Paulson, discussing the movie Heartland! Rachel sent this blurb involving a movie that focuses on Lauren, and artist in Oklahoma, who falls in love with her brother's girlfriend. This was perfect timing, as the Supreme Court announced over the weekend that same-sex marriage is constitutional and all states must grant a proper marriage license to all same-sex couples wishing to acquire one. Along with this treat, Rachel sent us some photos from the set!

I understand why the LGB portion of LGBT is grouped together but I would like to understand why the T is in the same category, as Trans is not a sexual preference.
Well, Reader, I’ve done some research in order to properly answer this question for you. Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual preference is a sexual identity, you are correct, however they are also a minority group, in which Trans men and women are included. From a cultural perspective, each group has fought for their own civil rights as a team, not as a sole category of people. Therefore, LGBT is not exclusively sexual preference, but rather a group of men and women whom share a common goal; to be understood and accepted for exactly who they are. Men and women in the LGBT community fall out of the gender normality category and have experienced difficulty in surviving daily life without ridicule of their person. Sexual preference is just that: preference. A common goal to receive basic human rights for someone who is human and is in no way different because of their sexual preference of gender is what laces L, G, B, and T people together.
I hope this answers your question! Feel free to comment on this response if you feel differently or have anything else to add.
