'Too Pretty To Be Gay': Gender Identity Vs. Sexual Preference Debated On HuffPost Live

Is "looking gay" ever beneficial to your personal life?

That was the question posed on HuffPost Live yesterday. Joining the conversation was dapperQ Managing Editor Anita Dolce Vita, who penned the popular HuffPost Gay Voices blog, "'You're Too Pretty To Be Gay' Is Not A Compliment."

"I've gotten it from both sides -- from within the community and from outside of the community as well," Vita noted in the segment. "I feel like my identity is not confirmed; I feel like I'm robbed of that."

She went on to note, "When I'm with straight people they're just completely confused by it because they all think that all lesbians look like Rachel Maddow."
