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.

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:

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.

And her answer?

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.

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

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.

R17 Oh shut up.

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.

[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.

She is not "sizzling hot."
At best, she's well groomed.'

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.

I really like Rachel, and think she's attractive, but she's still a bit too butch for me.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||04/06/2012|
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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

39 is middle-aged, R33. What else would it be?
|by Anonymous||reply 35||04/07/2012|
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.

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.

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.

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

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 Anonymous||reply 40||04/09/2012|
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.

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.

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