Word of the Gay: "Bambi Effect"

The "bambi effect" is when a young gay man discovers sexual interest in women and comes to identify as heterosexual.

Hmm.. would this also apply to a gay man who falls in love with a woman, even marries her, but retains his queer identity?

I don't think so because they are no longer interested in men after that point.

How about the word....bisexual?

Really, the "terms" you guys are coming up with are dumber and dumber. Where do you get this crap? Unless it's just for comedic effect, why do you waste yours and other people's time?

Strangely, I heard this recently and wonderedm WTF is THAT? Iphimedia, these terms are OUT there. Now I know what was being talked about. Me? I like learning new lingo and old, lost lingo. Keep up the great posts.

Iphimedia some of the terms are serious, some political, others cultural or funny. None of the WOG's are necessarily an endorsement of the terms.

Diane I am glad you like it. In what context did you hear it used? I never actually heard it used but it might be a generational thing.

Noooooooo! I hope this isn't necessarily the case with my boyfriend, he always idenitfied as gay to me and left for a girl:(
not that I'm hating just wish I still had him, glad I'm learning all of these new phrases though, guiding knowledge you provide helps hehe
