A new 'Leif': 40 is the new baby dyke
It's often said that comedian Carol Leifer, a longtime friend of Jerry Seinfeld's, is the basis for the Elaine character from that eponymous 90's show. So as you read this cute, interesting AOL Health piece on Leifer's 13-year lesbian partnership (which began at age 40, her first same-sex coupling), feel free to imagine that it's Julia who's kicking Louis and Dreyfus out of bed in favor of a Lori:
AOL Health: When you were younger, were there any indications that you might be gay?
Carol Leifer: I entitled the chapter "Surprise" because it was like my life threw me a surprise party. I really didn’t have any clue, and in fact, had very good physical relationships with men. It was around when I turned 40 that I had this really intense desire to have an affair with a woman. It just kind of overtook me, kind of like when you feel like you're on a mission.
When [Lori and I] first got together, I really thought this would be a nice fling. It was a surprise to me that I was falling in love, but who would know this many years later that the first woman I would have a relationship with would wind up being my long-term partner who I'm about to celebrate a 13-year anniversary with.

Confused why won't she call herself bisexual?

LOrion, I really couldn't fine a place where she said she wasn't bisexual, but my reading comprehension may be way off. Nevertheless, shouldn't we all be the ones who define our sexuality?
