¿GAY, STRAIGHT OR LYING?


I found this interesting article online that talked about this new study that is casting doubts on whether TRUE bisexuality exists when it comes to men. The study, by a team of psychologists in Chicago and Toronto, lends support to those who have long been skeptical that bisexuality is a distinct and stable sexual orientation. Men who claim that they are bisexuality, according to these critics, are usually homosexual, but are ambivalent about their homosexuality OR simply closeted. This study begged me question whether a man is either GAY, STRAIGHT or LYING? In the new study, the team of psychologists directly measured genital arousal patterns in response to images of men AND women. The psychologists found that men who identified themselves as bisexual were in fact exclusively aroused by either one sex or the other, usually by other men. The study went on to say that, “an estimated 1.7 percent of men who identify themselves as bisexual show physical attraction patterns that differ substantially from their professed desires.” This proves that there is a discrepancy between what is happening in his mind and what is going on in his bodies. I am aware that research on sexual orientation has been based almost entirely on self-reports, and this is one of the few good studies using physiological measures; however I have come to find that GAY or STRAIGHT, a man is JUST a man…& WE COULD SPEND ALL OF ETERNTIY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HIS SEXUAL ORIENTATION. I THINK THE PROBLEM IS BORN WHEN YOU THROW A GAY RELATIONSHIP IN THE MIX & IT UNRAVELS THINGS. I GUESS THE THOUGHT ABOUT THE BI-SEXUAL MAN IS THAT HE IS NOT SURE OR THERE IS SOMETHING LACKING FROM EACH GENDER SO HE HAS TO COMBINE BOTH TO SUIT HIS PURPOSE. I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THERE HAVE BEEN A COUNTLESS NUMBER OF BOOKS WRITTEN ABOUT THIS TOPIC & IT STILL REMAINS A MYSTERY. AS WE CONTINUE TO SCRATCH OUR PRIMITIVE HEADS WHEN IT COMES TO THE MALE PSYCHE, THE ONLY WAY WE CAN UNDERSTAND THIS IS TO TAKE ALL OUR MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE MALE & DEFINE WHAT A MAN REAL IS & NOT WHAT WE THINK HE SHOULD BE. THERE IS NO MAGIC FORMULA OR BEHAVIOR THAT WE CAN USE TO PEG A MAN WHEN IT COMES TO HIS SEXULAITY, @ LEAST DEFINITIVELY. YES THERE ARE SIGNS THAT LEAN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, BUT THERE IS SOMETHING INHERENT IN THE MALE GENETIC CODE THAT CREATES MORE EXCEPTIONS TO THE GENERALIZATIONS THAT WE MAKE OF HIM. ALL IN ALL, SEXUALITY IS AS VAGUE AS THE MEN WHO IDENTIFY WITH EITHER SIDE OF THE FENCE. WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT SEXUALITY IS MORE COMPLEX THAN A SIMPLE ADMISSION. THEREFORE BEFORE WE DECIDE WHETHER A MANY GAY, STRAIGHT OR LYING WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES IS HE REALLY WEARING HIS SEXUALITY ON THE OUTSIDE OR IS JUST ANOTHER MALE ENIGMA?
