Okay.. just because you now know that you're gay doesn't mean it stops there! Oh no sister!! It's like a religion!!! Take Christianity for example - finding yourself a Christian woman is simply not enough in today's society. Christianity has many different branches and is not merely defined as either being a Protestant or a Catholic, so neither is being gay defined only by being bi-sexual or homosexual. 

In today's lesbian circles, you are defined and categorized by your characteristics and your actions. Even if you are straight, it's probably in your interest as well to know what lesbians call you.

The second part to exploring your gay sexuality is knowing the actions you do. Actions speak louder than words honey, hence what society (therefore your gay peers) will call you. Knowing these terminologies will also help you understand your own circle of friends and what to refer to them as, albeit sometimes better secretly. 

It is expected that you are a combination of two or more of the following:

Baby Dyke - a young lesbian or someone who is just coming out of the closet. Also know as Dyke in Training.

Power Dyke - a lesbian who has gained a position of power, either within the LGBT community, or in the world at large. She could be the head of a non-profit agency, a politician or successful in business. Also known as Power Lesbian or a Suit.

Diesel Dyke - a very butch or manly woman, especially one who is very aggressive. In some lesbian circles Diesel Dyke refers to a very butch Big-Rig (or other heavy equipment) driving lesbian. Also known as Bulldagger.

Sport Dyke - a lesbian who more than anything, identifies with being an athlete. She may also dress in a manner that would give the impression she is an athlete, like baseball caps, sweatshirts and jeans.

Gold Star Lesbian - is a lesbian who has never slept with a man and has no intention of ever sleeping with a man.

Lone Star Lesbian - A Lone Star Lesbian is not a lesbian from Texas. A Lone Star Lesbian is someone who has only had sex with one person in their life. Straight and bisexual people can be Lone Stars too.

Stone Butch - a woman who gets her pleasure from pleasing her partner. She does not like to be touched sexually.

Pillow Queen - is someone who likes to be on the receiving end of sex. She likes to be pleasured and not reciprocate.

Hasbian - a woman who used to identify as a lesbian and date women, but is now dating men.

LUG - stands for "Lesbian until Graduation". A LUG is a woman who experiments with women during her college years, but eventually decides she is straight and marries a man.

Lipstick Lesbian - a lesbian who loves her clothes, makeup and shoes. She tends to dress quite femininely. Also known as Femme or Fem.

Chapstick Lesbian - also known as a soft butch or androgynous. She usually dresses quite casually and doesn't wear make-up. The term Chapstick Lesbian was popularized after an episode of the TV show Ellen. Someone asked Ellen if she were a lipstick lesbian or what. Ellen replied, she was more of a chapstick lesbian.

Stud - a dominant lesbian, usually butch and often African American.

Drag King - a woman who dresses to look like a man, usually for performance. Drag kings are often lesbians but not always.
