Mensa is not selective. Top 2% translates to 1/50 people. Considering the tens of thousands of people you encounter in daily life, that's a lot of people. It's not like scoring 98th percentile on the LSAT, where the entire body test-takers sample only an upper slice of the general population.

i've heard of plenty of lesbians and gays refer to SO's as boyfriend/girlfriend rather than partner.

Now that I can get with. But Partner is the universal tip off signal that is as good as a *ding* on the gaydar.
