A new study confirms something we kind of already knew. Nobody is 100 percent straight. That's right, your parents, your boss, and even that guy who called you a queer in high school are at least a little bit gay.
Conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the study had participants watch different kinds of porn to gage their reaction. It found that straight-identifying women's eyes dialated while watching porn that involved a man and a woman, as well as porn that involved two women. The study's author, Ritch C Savin-Williams said it provides that sexuality is a “continuum,” hoping it will clear up stigmas and misconceptions about bisexual people.
“We’re trying to get at the way people really are,” he said. “Sometimes, it seems people are one way but believe they have to report themselves in another way, and that’s not good.”
So, next time someone writes off bisexuality as just a phase before coming out as gay, feel free to cite this study.
