When Marie Guo confided in her dormmates about her asexuality, she received little sympathy. Instead, they questioned how a virgin could be so sure she didn’t feel sexually attracted to anybody. “They suggested I have sex with my boyfriend and emphasized I needed to do it repeatedly before drawing a conclusion,” Guo tells Sixth Tone.

Guess that would mean a gay man would need to have sex with a woman repeatedly before drawing a conclusion or vice versa, then.

Oh yes, the “have sex with men, women, me etc. Multiple times multiple people for many, many years first before concluding first” trope.  Some people just will not be satisfied with the identities of other people that don’t fit their own ideals.
