    Incidentally, I scored a 3... "Equally heterosexual and homosexual".
    Fairly accurate I'd say.
    I did not like that test. I scored a 5. Lol

    At least you got a number. I got an X.

    Did the Kinsey quiz.

    I'm a very unusual person. BUAHAHAHA! But I already knew that.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    That's like comparing intercourse to a pap smear. Quite a different experience, in my opinion!

    I scored a 2, predominantly but not exclusively hetero. But I knew that. It's what someone on the last thread we had on this topic called "hetero-flexible". I thought that was a good term.

    You can make the same argument about anything. What is the point of theoretical physics? Why study the origins of the universe? Why not just dance and play and never think about anything to hard? The existence of homosexuality is a mystery of evolutionary biology. Like any scientific mystery, attempting to figure it out is rewarding and fun.

    Go Team 3!

    Interestingly, most of my relationships have been with men despite my sexual orientation, mostly because of the complexities of figuring out whether other women are friendly or something more and the relative implications of dating men vs. women (including biphobia I've encountered with some lesbians). It's sort of my bi-girl curse--it's sometimes easier to be invisible because I'm with a guy, but I also don't want my sexual orientation to vanish because I'm in a het relationship.

    I'm far more polar on the monogamy/non-monogamy continuum than on the sexual one. Women, men, doesn't matter that much to me, but I really only want to date one at a time, thanks.

    Never think about anything too hard?

    Yeah, never said that knowledge was a waste of time. I just said I didn't want to spend MY time and money on figuring out why some people are gay and others are straight. I just don't care why for a multitude of reasons. People are what they are, and I don't really care why because I can't see how it would change anyone's life in the long run.

    That does NOT mean that I want to "dance and play and never think about anything to (sic) hard". It means I have different priorities. That's all. Sorry if they aren't the same as yours. That's most likely because I'm not you. Why am I not like you? I don't care.

    This. All of it. In spades. And since I've emigrated I'm faced with everyone here assuming I'm straight, fair enough really, because I'm married. It seems utterly pointless to out myself, but it's also such an annoying asumption.
