    Surveys: despite everything, still the most reliable method of knowing what people are like.

    But does the person feeling "a little bit bi" counts as hetero- or homo- or bisexual? The only thing natures abhorrs more than a vacuum is neat categories, it seems.


    Look, I was quoting a thing, not making a serious statement about life, the universe and everything.

    I don't know about Fryaltari, but I don't have no gaydar.
    Yes yes, feel better soon. Don't worry, it happens to all of us at one time or another (so many straight girls I had crushes on v_v)*

    *this is facetious I had a crush on maybe two people through my life, real world style. All my attempts at love were actually het up until like two years ago somehow.

    Honestly that's a good question, and the study the flower posted specifically divides them into distinct categories as opposed to just listing it as het/non-het, which is itself an interesting choice since it does make the numbers look smaller than they are in total.

    I know you were quoting a thing! I was just pointing out it's not statistically weird for that to happen, and providing reasons. It was to incite somewhat comedic discussion.

    Damnit I tried so hard to get the last part of your name right I completely whiffed the first part. Sorry!

    Yesterday was bad, but I'm feeling fine today. I fully expect to feel down and up again a few times in the near future, though.

    Oof, tough break.

    If I'm reading this correctly that sounds positive. So good for you. But also *envious*.

    How dare you move the topic of conversation away from me! You might as well steal the attention right from my mouth... hands... ears... eyes... Attention-receiving organs. Brain?

    But that's the one people usually mess up!

Like, there was some ****in' study (not peer reviewed, of course) that said oil burning was good for the environment... and it was funded and produced by the big oil companies. A single look into that would show quite easily how no actual proper science was done, so any findings they had are invalid. That's the thing I'd be looking for on a thing like this.
    I see, yeah. That can really be an issue. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    The thing is, I have some difficulty relating to the problem at hand. Why don't you just sit tight being pretty and let the bees handle the rest as normal poeple'd do?

    Put me down as the 'suspicious of the commonly reported cis-het/other ratio' camp. While I don't believe it's anywhere near 50/50, and my social circles make my much more likely to meet LGBTWQIA+ people, I'm not certain we even have a good cultural baseline on when you count as 'bi'. To use the Kinsey scale people will describe 'bi as 1-5, 2-4, or just the 3.

    Plus sexuality is messy anyway, especially when we bring non-binary and intersex people into it. It's nothing I have to deal with, but then again all my partners and the majority of my friends are bi/pan.

    You've got this bud!

    It's... a mixed bag, cause during that time period I was also pretending to be a cis girl while in a messy sort of half denial half desperate pleading of being a trans girl, and also one of the romances I had was a severely ****ed up abusive relationship that i won't get into. Suffice to say, you don't want the things I had, trust me.

    It'd definitely be brain. The instant the topic shift it is like I'm reaching right in there and stealing the seratonin straight from the meat!

    Lately, I've been kind of obsessed with the idea of making my own Ahms and having it absorb me so that I can fuse with it and get a better body that way.
