That is part of the debate sparked by Sophie Turner’s comments during an interview with Rolling Stone.
The « Game of Thrones » star chatted with the publication for their latest cover story and talked about her sisterhood with co-star Maisie Williams and her engagement to singer Joe Jonas.
Turner was 21 when Jonas popped the question and the now 23-year-old told Rolling Stone she didn’t think it was going to happen for her at any age.
« I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life, » she said. « I think once you’ve found the right person, you just know. »
The actress added « I feel like I’m much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I’ve lived enough life to know. I’ve met enough guys to know — I’ve met enough girls to know. »
Asked to expand on the part about girls, Turner said « Everyone experiments. »
« It’s part of growing up, » she said. « I love a soul, not a gender. »
That set off tweets proclaiming that Turner had « come out. »
But it also set off a discussion about the fact that Turner didn’t specifically label her sexuality and some said she’s the only one who can.
« Sophie Turner did NOT label her sexuality, » one person tweeted. « This does not mean you can label it for her. She’s a real person not a fictional character. »
