Rachel Maddow and Howard Stern on Goldstar Lesbians, Volleyball and Yearbook Pics

Stern informed her that a lesbian who’s never had sex with a man is a “gold star lesbian,” but she would not say if she’d qualify. “I’m never going to tell you that. …It’s personal,” she said.

One more thing to like about Rachel Maddow-she understands boundaries.

"Gold standard lesbians"...haha, great term for never had penis penetration.

by Anonymousreply 204/03/2012

She was exceedingly gorgeous in high school, so she probably got hit on by the jocks. Wonder if she was tempted at any point though.

She doesn't give off the "gold star lesbian" vibe in her high school pic:

by Anonymousreply 404/03/2012

she's more gorgeous now, imo/

She looka like a man!

Good interview...surprisingly.

R2, you need a remedial reading class.

"Gold star lesbian" is the lez catchphrase for those with raging hate issues against men.

At least gay men term their purity from female sex as "gold star gays" which has no insulting, hate-based conotations.

Stop adoring, watching and standing by allowing hate against men. Your misandry is killing you.

Kill it back.

She managed to appear on that show and leave with her dignity intact. A rare event for a guest on that show. There were a couple of close moments, though.

Howard did ask the question I wondered about - if she gets hit on a lot (and tempted) now that she is so high profile.

by Anonymousreply 1004/04/2012

And her answer?

by Anonymousreply 1104/04/2012

She claimed she didn't, was too busy working, etc. I am sure she gets hit on a lot. If you are interested there is a link to the show & interview at OP's link.

Don't be surprised, r7, he is the best interviewer put there, without exception.

by Anonymousreply 1304/04/2012

She is one handsome lesbian.

by Anonymousreply 1404/04/2012

I'd hit on her.... I like my women tall, dark, handsome, and smart.

No she doesn't. If she did, she would have had enough sense not to go on this pig's show.

by Anonymousreply 1604/06/2012

R16, she's promoting a book, and HS has a huge audience. Besides, one of her things is trying to get Republicans to come on her show. She asks tough questions, but she is always respectful and treats people with good humor. It would be hypocritical of her to refuse to appear with Stern. She's good on both sides of the interview desk, and it's certain she learned a few things about doing her job well from being interviewed by Stern and others on this book tour.

by Anonymousreply 1704/06/2012

R17 Oh shut up.

by Anonymousreply 1804/06/2012

very good interview. it would have been better if rachel wasn't so dignified and smart. lol. goooood to know she dates black women. I have a chance. you can tell she clearly likes and respects howard and just didn't go on to promote the book. I mean she probably did, but she didnt have to say those super nice things to him at the end.

also love the exchange regarding david letterman hitting on her and her reply, that inviting any guest on your show is a form of flirtation. what does that say about her inviting melispa on all those times.

Exceedingly gorgeous? What the fuck happened?

by Anonymousreply 2004/06/2012

Great interview. Love Howard.

by Anonymousreply 2104/06/2012

[R20] is a jealous hater. Maddow is hot! Sexy smile, gorgeous eyes and smart as hell. Very pretty girl is HS, sizzling hot 39 year old. Howard is clearly smitten as many of us are.

P.S. There's no way she's a "goldstar lesbian." She and her boyfriend totally got it on.

by Anonymousreply 2204/06/2012

She is not "sizzling hot."


At best, she's well groomed.'

by Anonymousreply 2304/06/2012

I've aways wondered why some lesbians adopt this look--mannish hairdo, men's clothing, etc especially when they were at one time straight girls. And to top it all off--having a slim, trim figure that would look hot with longer hair and more feminine clothing. It's not like she has to look this way to give out the message--we already knoe. It's mind-boggling.

by Anonymousreply 2404/06/2012

I really like Rachel, and think she's attractive, but she's still a bit too butch for me.

by Anonymousreply 2504/06/2012

In private, she looks like an overgrown boy. I had not idea that's considered beautiful.

This has got to be the worst photo of Maddow... but I'm still posting it.

by Anonymousreply 2604/06/2012

had *no* idea

by Anonymousreply 2704/06/2012

Is she an alcoholic? She has the face in R26's link.

by Anonymousreply 2804/06/2012

I like her "mannish boy" look because it is unapologetically lesbian, and she is still cute that way. I like how she is not a sell out because she has a TV show.

It'd be worse if she tried to look girly and it didn't suit her.

I know some younger lesbians think they are cutting edge to look like porn stars or bimbos, but that look doesn't even look good on straight bimbos.

here's a cute photo of her in boy mode

by Anonymousreply 2904/06/2012

I think Rachel's lost some weight since r26's photo.

by Anonymousreply 3004/06/2012

In her grad photo she's one of a million nice reasonably cute blonde 17-year-olds. She's super hot as a smart short-haired middle-aged dyke.

by Anonymousreply 3104/06/2012

you can find a bad photo of anyone

I bet even DLers have bad photos

by Anonymousreply 3204/06/2012

"She's super hot as a smart short-haired middle-aged dyke."

She's 39, I wouldn't call that middle-aged. You know the haters are always going to find the worse possible photo they can find as "proof" of their personal opinion. I find Maddow quite attractive.

by Anonymousreply 3304/07/2012

She was hot as a trying-to-be-femme, she's hot as a butch, and she'd be smokin' as an FTM.

by Anonymousreply 3404/07/2012

39 is middle-aged, R33. What else would it be?

by Anonymousreply 3504/07/2012

I'm a gay man who thinks she's gorgeous. Yes, R26's photo is really unflattering, but I don't think she's lost weight, or at least not more than a couple of pounds. She was always thin since I've been aware of her, when she used to be a guest on Olbermann.

by Anonymousreply 3604/08/2012

That interview was difficult for me to listen to but she a did great job of it. I just don't get Stern or his audience, UGH. But any rudeness of Stern is always inevitably out-shadowed by his callers. Fucking Disgusting. And Im so tired people who think it's okay to ask a lesbian, or a gay man for that mattter- if they've tried sex with the other gender. Is that okay to ask someone- in general public conversation- Um, no? None of your business. Period. No. But people seem to think gays are up for 'figuring out'. Rude.

I can see why she went on, she pretty much says so- He has a HUGE audience. So there it is. She is selling her book to both sides of the aisle.

by Anonymousreply 3704/09/2012

The pic at r26 humanizes her IMO. clearly an off-camera phase wherein she just let her hair grow out to whatever. I've been there.

Why do forums always try to argue "hot or not"? Obviously people have differing opinons and we'll never all agree - especially where lesbians are involved and everyone has a different idea about the standard should be. Butch/femme/androgynous/ etc.

Put me in the "hot" category. Love this woman's show and can't wait to see her on her book tour.

by Anonymousreply 3804/09/2012

Maybe I'm alone on this, but long hair was not a good look on her.

by Anonymousreply 3904/09/2012

You are not alone. It's only the conformist 20somethings who only know 25 years of backlash against feminism and Spice Girls to Katy Perry that say that, R39.

by Anonymousreply 4004/09/2012

I agree r39. I saw some footage of her speaking at her Highschool graduation (Google it- it's out there.) She had her long- bleached blonde- hair, but she was obviously not comfortable with it all. She kept tucking it behind her ears in an all to familiar fashion like most baby dykes do when they're forced to conform to small town perceptions.

She looked like a butch who tries to play femme. Her hair today is much more natural for her and it frames her face much better.

by Anonymousreply 4104/09/2012

According to one of her recent interviews, she would have enlisted herself had it not been for the U.S. then-"don't ask don't tell" policy.

by Anonymousreply 4204/09/2012

She's been sick and off her show for a week. The producers say it's laryngitis. Does that really last this long?

by Anonymousreply 4306/14/2012

Thanks for the info, r43.
