News Roundup for 8/23/11

T-shirt - 'Bisexuals are confused - by your prejudice'
Not a myth

-Headline of the Day-
"Bisexual men exist: study."

Yeah, yeah, yeah. There was an earthquake in DC. You don't need to hear about that from me. If there's one thing an earthquake in Washington is going to get, it's plenty of press coverage. Think about it; that's where all the reporters are. If it had happened in Kansas City, the media response would be, "Weird, huh?" and then they'd move on. But it happened to them, making it the biggest, most important news story ever.

So it falls to me to do the heavy lifting and report the real big story of the day. And that big story involves hooking up high-techy doo-dads to guys' wing-wangs and showing them porn, because scientific discovery is how civilization advances.

See, there was actually some question as to whether bi fellas existed after a 2005 study by Northwestern University turned up inconclusive. In that study, "men who identified themselves as bisexual were in fact exclusively aroused by either one sex or the other, usually by other men."

Perhaps the quality of the porn was an issue, because this time around Northwestern got a result. Awesome porn of one category and lousy porn of the other would skew the results, after all. I don't know. Just throwing it out there. Just being all pundity and engaging in baseless speculation. In any case, all those guys who say they're bi are really bi. Not really clear on why we ever doubted them in the first place, but there ya go. We've got proof now. It's science.

Progress marches on. (Raw Story)

-Buffetted by criticism-
