Brunette, athletic, sleazy and demure, Oh! female.
Thats sex, not gender. Sex is biological, its what you can generally tell from a ultrasound. Gender is biological/sociological and cant be known until the kid grows up some. Sure, it may be technical nitpicking or a form of liberal newspeak, but I think it has merits to distinguish in this manner. My wife counsels transgenders often and very much relies on the distinction.There is the male (XY) and female (XX) gender, but there are also intersex individuals (e.g. XXY). The statement that there are only 2 genders is thus not correct.
No kidding! I have been informally studying human sexuality for the last couple of years and it's a crazy world out there!!! I've come to the conclusion that there is no such a thing as "normal".It took me a long time to understand sexual orientation is on a spectrum, not a discrete point. And it can be complicated,
I never thought of it like that, but you're right. Although, I tend to associate the word "straight" with "conformist", as in, "straight and narrow". That's not always a positive thing!I don't particularly like the term "straight" because it implies the alternative as being crooked or deviant, or something else with a negative connotation.
lisab, you are wrong about that, as I know personally a (for the most part) straight woman who enjoys watching male gay porn. And sexuality is indeed quite complicated.:rofl: I don't get that, but it's nearly universal in hetero males so I have to accept it. For the record, "I want to watch male gay porn" has been said by a straight woman...never, I'm pretty sure.
But then again, I'm probably wrong about that. Sexuality is complicated!
No, it doesn't imply that. I don't know why you would think that.such a reaction also implies that you, too, think of the alternatives as crooked or deviant.
I noticed that too. I wonder of our male/female ratio has increased?Im straight as an arrow, but i can not get a bird no one loves me. and how come there are so few birds, chicks, females replying to the survey are they all shy?
I suspect that there are so few women replying to this survey because there are comparatively fewer women members on PF compared to men (I could be wrong about this though).Im straight as an arrow, but i can not get a bird no one loves me. and how come there are so few birds, chicks, females replying to the survey are they all shy?
Something struck me now. Homo- and hetero- come from Greek and mean "the same" and "others, different". If someone is strongly monogamic, that makes him homo, and those promiscuous are hetero, don't you think?I like my wife especially.
