There´s no such thing as totally
´straight´, new study on sexuality says

Independent [UK], by Narjas Zatat

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/13/2018 3:32:21 PM

Rigid sexual orientations have defined the preference of men and women for decades; however, a new study is attempting to do away with strict definitions of sexuality. The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, argues that there’s no such thing as a “straight” man or woman. Rather, people operate on a spectrum. Researchers showed men and women different kinds of pornographic material. Rather than relying on self-reporting, the study looked at physiological responses to the sexual material. Namely pupil dilation, which is a sign of sexual arousal. The study found that women’s eyes dilated when they viewed a man and

Comments:
That Journal of Personality is published by the American Psychological Association, link below. I say that they are stark raving mad. It is just stunning what is coming out of these institutions. This constant push for brainwashing related to being gay or transgender is beyond disturbing.

Contd. FTA: "...Ritch C Savin-Williams, who is also the Director of Developmental Psychology at Cornell University, said:   He argues that though the idea of bisexuality as the norm is becoming more accepted when it comes to women, men are still struggling with patriarchal stigma."

This is what is coming from Cornell? Bisexuality is the norm? Seriously? YUCK. This leftist bilge that men are struggling with patriarchal stigma is the biggest bunch of hogwash I have ever heard. It is so disturbing that these institutions that you thought you could trust have been infected with heinous disease of leftism. Who can you trust anymore? I really hate it that I have to question the veracity of everything I read anymore.

I think this article should be used on those in WDC. Most of them are crooked--not straight.

As for gender, these weirdees would have to throw out the science they cling to in order to believe this tripe. There are only X´s and Y´s, not L´s, B´s, G´s, T´s, or Q´s or any other alphabets. So, you´re either XX or XY. Couldn´t be plainer.

Anytime you see something like this, a "study" trying to prove something or change minds or any objective at all other than "collect information", you can ignore it. That is always a dead giveaway of a pre-determined outcome rather than an honest inquiry.

The prostitutes of porn are the worst types of individuals from whom to draw conclusions about human sexuality. These individuals - especially the women - will have sexualized interactions with anyone so long as you pay them. It´s a paid model, not a true sexual model.

Therefore, the study cited is deeply flawed.

As for the notion that a patriarchal society oppresses male bisexuality, nonsense. It is women who oppress male bisexuality. I have never known a woman to say "yay, my husband finds men hot". Male bisexuality removes from women the power of consent. It dis - empowers them.

IF here is no such thing as "Straight" then there is no such thing as Gay...What say we all go back to not discussing in public what we do in Private, be it the Bathroom or the Bedroom? Let alone making it the ONLY thing that defines an individual. There are others in society that build a complete new "persona" based upon what they do for recreation, Bikers, Skiers, Surfers, Bicyclists...they all adopt similar mannerism´s, jargon, even accents..but those are public "Sports" not private practices. Any one of those individuals if they talked about sex all of the time would be considered boorish if not fired outright if done in a business/educational setting, Why the exclusion from "Norms" for this particular tiny percentage of society?

From a Scientific American article "What do an orgasm, a multiplication problem and a photo of a dead body have in common? Each induces a slight, irrepressible expansion of the pupils in our eyes."

The "researchers" say dilation is a sign of sexual interest but many forms of stress also cause dilation. Maybe there was a repulsion with certain types of sexual activity and THAT caused the dilation.

This is the typical pseudo science that will be endlessly quoted in media to support gays. It´s shoddy and deceptive. Some real scientist will point out it´s serious flaws but media will ignore it being discredited because it doesn´t fit their agenda.

At the rate this crazy world is spiraling downwards, I have a feeling there might be another "Sodom event" coming in the not-too-distant future. (Ref. Genesis, Chapter 19.)

If those of us who are God-fearing; moral; believers in two genders (determined at birth); STRAIGHT; monogamous/faithful to our spouses and are at the point of saying "ENOUGH OF THIS UTTER NONSENSE", can you imagine what our Creator, God the Father is thinking?

Allow me to point out something for you people.
Pre adolescent boys and girls go through a stage where they are wary of the opposite sex.
They each believe the opposite sex has cooties or something.
That creates a marvelous opportunity for homosexuals and lesbians to do some serious recruiting to their side of the street. And if they have psychological studies to support their positions, more the better.
(Back in the 1970s, when the Catholic church found itself to be knee deep in homosexual, pedophile priests, and traumatized children, the cardinals sought the advice of psychologists. And the psychologists told the Church leaders that the priests could be kept, under close supervision and psychological counseling.
We know how that worked out.

I guess these so called "sex researchers" are just finding out about what Christianity and Judaism refer to as "the old man" or "old sin nature" of Adam, passed on to every generation of mankind genetically through the male in procreation. However, along those lines, about 99% of society is apparently immune from the effects of homosexuality, just like not everyone is a thief or murderer. Since we´re all sinners, we can determine our own personal inclinations toward bad things and avoid them through something called "determination." We don´t have to succumb to our "lusts" or "desires" like liberals say you must do. Hedonists always claim everyone else is just as depraved as them. Wrong.

NEW YORK — In his newly released book, Sen. John McCain admits he knew the anti-Trump dossier that he infamously passed to the FBI contained “unproven accusations,” “mostly raw, unverified intelligence” and allegations about which the senator “had no idea” if “any were true.” Yet McCain maintains he had an “obligation” to pass the wild charges against Donald Trump to FBI Director James Comey and he would even do it again. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain exclaimed.

The Capitol Police turned over a trove of evidence in the alleged Imran Awan House cyberbreach and theft case to the defense attorneys when they were supposed to deliver it to prosecutors instead, according to court documents and a source. And hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation asked prosecutors about the disclosure, Awan’s lawyer said he had learned of the forthcoming story from a source on Capitol Hill. TheDCNF had not told anyone other than prosecutors about it. “The cop came to [Awan’s defense attorney] Chris Gowen’s office with a stack of papers … Then he came back and said,

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating Roger Stone’s finances as part of the probe into alleged collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia. CNN reported Thursday that investigators have asked associates of Stone, an informal adviser to Trump´s 2016 campaign, about his finances, including Stone´s tax returns. Stone told CNN that investigators were apparently "combing through" his personal life, including business affairs, but claimed it was because they lacked evidence of collusion.

WASHINGTON — Since Donald J. Trump began dominating American politics more than two years ago, Democrats concerned about his policies and behavior have taken solace in a group of influential Republicans who have consistently assailed the president as anathema to the values of their party, and the country more broadly. In the past year, however, influential liberal donors and operatives have gone from cheering these so-called Never Trump Republicans to quietly working with — and even funding — them. Through invitation-only emails and private, off-the-record meetings, they have formed a loose network of cross-partisan alliances aimed at helping neutralize President Trump,

Two more House Republicans have joined the discharge petition to force votes on immigration, potentially leaving centrists just two signatures short of success. Reps. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) signed the discharge petition Thursday before the House left town for the Memorial Day recess. If all Democrats endorse the petition, just two more GOP signatures would be needed to reach the magic number of 218. House Republican leaders and conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have fought to stop the petition, which was introduced by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.). Leaders have warned that bypassing the usual process for

‘Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.” It was a little after midnight on May 4, 2016. FBI lawyer Lisa Page was texting her paramour, FBI counterespionage agent Peter Strzok, about the most stunning development to date in the 2016 campaign: Donald Trump was now the inevitable Republican nominee. He would square off against Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ certain standard-bearer. The race was set . . . between two major-party candidates who were both under investigation by the FBI. In stunned response, Strzok wrote what may be the only words we need to know,

That’s according to emails obtained under a Freedom of Information request from a reporter from the Baltimore Post.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.
