[I went to the MIT Museum today and yeah, sometimes i really heart MIT.]
eard_stapa posted the full text of "Straight, Gay or Lying? Bisexuality Revisited" (Benedict Carey, NYTimes, 5 July 2005) and much interesting discussion ensued [locked, but linked for my own reference]. It is problematic like whoa to define sexual orientation by arousal reaction to porn.
Ann Althouse’s brief commentary reminded me that i had missed one of the sentences in the article when i read it:
"Although about a third of the men in each group showed no significant arousal watching the movies, their lack of response did not change the overall findings, Mr. Rieger said."
Shouldn’t that piece of data indicate that perhaps your findings are flawed, though? Le sigh.
eard_stapa later posted a poll, which idea i am blatantly stealing from her.
Which are you?
My mom sent me a link to this survey.
Excerpt from the invitation e-mail:
My name is Dan Dengel and as part of my dissertation
research as a doctoral candidate with the Counseling
Psychology Department at Temple University I would
like to invite you to participate in a survey. This
is an Internet survey regarding your thoughts,
feelings, and behaviors with regards to bisexuality
and bisexual individuals.
Eligibility for participation in this study includes
those individuals who are 18 years of age and older,
do not identify as transgendered, and have never been
hospitalized for psychiatric reasons.
The measures should take approximately 5-10 minutes to
complete. You will be asked to complete demographic
information, and a survey on bisexuality.
