Bisexuals Are (NOT) Gay

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

The NYT has an article on a new study about bisexuality today.
People who claim bisexuality, according to these critics, are usually homosexual, but are ambivalent about their homosexuality or simply closeted. "You're either gay, straight or lying," as some gay men have put it.
Very intriguing. Since when is it okay for the New York fucking Times to quote “some gay men.” What is that supposed to mean? Who are these gay men? Have they ever even lain a woman? Doubtful. The article is ultimately balanced (though contention gets buried many paragraphs down) and when you read it through you realize that the study is limited and inconclusive.

The problem with studies that put electrodes on penises and show subjects porn is that these studies deny the synthetic, ambiguous nature of desire and attraction. These things are NOT empirical. This is not news. Man, I’d love to cruise a room with all 101 Toronto boys tested for the survey discussed. You know, for science.
