Theres no such thing as totally straight or totally gay


Theres no such thing as a person who is totally straight or totally gay, everyone is bi and is inbetween, everyone is attracted to both sexes and everyone has had sexual thoughts and fantasies about people of both sexes.

Not everyone though is actively bisexual when i mean actively bisexual i mean not everyone has had sex with people of both sexes but thats not what sexual orientation is about, sexual orientation is not about what a person does it's what a person feels, most people are only actively heterosexual while a small minority of people are actively homosexual and actively bisexual and thats how people get identified as heterosexual homosexual and bisexual.

Every person also has a greater attraction towards one sex, the majority of the worlds population which identify as heterosexual which is 97 percent of the worlds population have a greater attraction to the opposite sex and prefer the opposite sex while a small minority of the worlds population which identify as homosexual which is 3 percent of the worlds population have a greater attraction to the same sex and prefer the same sex.

Also Kinsey himself even proved and said that there is no such thing as any person who is totally straight or totally gay and that all people are bi and are inbetween, when Kinsey did the scale of how straight or how gay people are on a scale of 1 to 10 out of the thousands of people that were studied and took part in the survey none of them were a 1 or a 10 and they were all in between and that further proves that exclusive heterosexuality and exclusive homosexuality does not exist and that bisexuality is the norm.

Ummm... his scale was between 0 and 6, and I am pretty sure some people were classified as a 0 or a 6. Although unless you could totally dissect their brains and read their minds, there is really no way to prove complete 100% hetero or homosexuality.

The Kinsey scale is not based on thought, but on actions. Only instances of sex, masturbation, and arousal were counted, not what a person believed themselves to be attracted to.

It has its flaws but at least it does rule out subjects misperceiving or lying.

I'm a 0. Why should that be so hard to believe? I've never had thoughts or interest in the same-sex. Even if I tried I wouldnt even know what to look for in another woman. Sure, I can see if a woman is pretty/ugly cause I have eyes. But thats not sexual/romantic desire. LOL And besides wasnt Kinsey supposedly bi-sexual himself? And his studies were very controversial, etc. Probably just because of his weird sexual fetishes it made him feel better thinking everyone must be at least somewhat like himself.. ha ha.

You mean Gays are hypocrites, too ?

reply

I am too, and honestly I think the majority of people are. But those people who are really have no reason to be interested in these kinds of discussions. That has certainly been my experience, that it is people who are gay or bi who try to push the "EVERYONE is a little bit gay!" line, and most of us don't bother responding.

I'm straight, but if someone wants to think I am just denying deeper gay feelings, whatever. I think it's a justification, either to make them feel less different or to justify behavior they feel is immoral.

reply

Funny, I always thought that it was 1-5...

Whichever it is, I'm most certainly a 0. That is if I have this right, that I am totally heterosexual. Sometimes, just to get to my father and all of the other religious zealots out there, I do wish I wasn't totally straight, but that's how it is. As an unconventional male I've tried things, like thinking about penises, and male bodies, but it just didn't work. As a younger boy, when I knew nothing about sex, a friend of mine wanted to have sex with me (gay sex), both of us boys, of course. But once in that position, it just didn't feel right, so I rolled out from underneath him. If I had had gay sex, I don't think it would bother me that much, but it might...

I had always thought that it was odd that nothing happened to me in that situation...that is until I started to understand this business. I finally got why men or boys couldn't get me there; I'm not gay, nor bi. Apparently my friend was bi. So, no, not everyone is bi.

reply

I agree in part.

You can be totally gay, totally straight, bi, straight with gay tendencies and desires... and vice-versa. In sex (as in life) not everything is black & white. It's also something of logic and common sense.

And I'm sure that numbers 0 and 6 are the minority of the global population while the mayority is 1,2,3,4 & 5.

I agree with this more than the OP

You make perfect sense, thanks for writing this concise post.

Beach Bum84, I appreciate that you are open to your duality (I wish more people were), but I think that maybe you see the world the way you see yourself. It's not accurate that EVERYONE is EXACTLY like you. There are certainly plenty of 0s and 6s out there. But I believe the vast majority are 2-5, though most of them wouldn't admit to it, not even in the privacy of their own troubled minds.

Also, I'm not sure why you felt the need to define heterosexuality and homosexuality at length, as if none of us knew already. Sheesh.

reply

Kinsey and the other so-called "experts" don't know everything. I am 100% straight. I am 100% attracted to men, and I've never had a fantasy about women. So that theory that you posted? It's just that: a theory. And a bogus one at that.

reply

Just wanted to say that I completely agree with this comment. I am a woman that's completely straight. I have no sexual attraction to women at all. I believe sexualality is on a spectrum, some completely straight, some completely gay and everything in between.

Theres no such thing as totally straight or totally gay

Dumbest statment ever posted.

It's a guarranteed disaster...like eating a burrito before sex.

reply

I concur. But, what was your point to this post?

reply

It's a complex issue. Most people will be quite adamant in "defense" of their 100% sexuality. I think to me, it doesn't really make sense but it's more because feelings have always been more important than sexual attraction. They come first for me so I don't really see how anyone can say "I'll only be interested in the personality of someone if they are a man". It's like saying "I'll only fall in love with people who have blond hair". But to each their own. If their 100% sexuality works for them, and doesn't prevent them from finding love, then good.

Only bi-sexuals think everyone is a little bi-sexual.
