More young Americans now identify as bisexual…

01) More young Americans now identify as bisexual

“One-quarter (25%) of people identified as something other than completely heterosexual, compared to 20% of people in 2015.

Fewer Americans today identify as completely heterosexual, according to new data from YouGov Omnibus. People were asked to place themselves on the Kinsey scale, where 0 is completely heterosexual and 6 is completely homosexual. The scale was invented by Alfred Kinsey in 1948 as a tool to study human sexuality. The original study used several methods to determine where someone would fall on the spectrum, but YouGov simply asked people to place themselves on the scale.

The same series of questions was asked of YouGov panelists in August 2015 and June 2018, and the results show that in 2018, more people say they’re not completely heterosexual. One-quarter (25%) of people identified as something other than completely heterosexual, compared to 20% of people in 2015.”

When people feel safe in being honest about their sexuality…we find that a lot more people admit to things, that they’d otherwise keep secret.

When it’s no longer such a scary prospect…people will think nothing of making these admissions…

…Once the stigma is gone…why should they fear others knowing?

    “People were asked to place themselves on the Kinsey scale, where 0 is completely heterosexual and 6 is completely homosexual. The scale was invented by Alfred Kinsey in 1948 as a tool to study human sexuality.”

    I have always thought it more accurate to employ a three-dimensional scale (x,y,z) where x and y are measures of heterophilia and homophilia, respectively, and z is a measure of age of attraction ranging from 0 to 100 (say). Using such a scale in a comprehensive research study, one could derive far more insight into human sexuality than currently exists and to more than mankind is prepared to admit to.

    In fact, using 3-D … you might end up exclaiming: “Oh! Glory of glories! Oh heavenly testament to the eternal majesty of God’s creation!” and then add: HOLY MACARONI!”
