What's your sexual orientation?

post #1 of 92
Thread Starter 
During a serious discussion about what sexual orientation and relationships mean, the Klein Orientation Grid was mentioned favourably. Just for fun, what are your results according to the grid? You can find an online self-administered version here.

I'll start : 62% straight, which seems about right, maybe a bit low.

According to the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid, you are 90% straight and 10% gay.

In subjective terms, this means you are predominantly heterosexual; only incidentally homosexual.

According to the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid, Iam are 96% straight and 4% gay.

In subjective terms, this means I am exclusively heterosexual.

No surprises there.

Does the "G" stand for Vanna?

I was 90% S., 10% G.

17% straight for me, though I think it is probably because of the "your past" thread of the grid. Growing up in the Bible Belt, obviously I didn't meet other gay people until college, so the "affiliations" and such were predominantly heterosexual until then. Nevertheless, 17% of me apparently is REALLY digging the "NSFW Tittaaaay" threads. Who'd a thunk it?

In my head it does.

It was a little weird though. I answered "always girls" for every sexual fantasy, experience, and everything like that, and "only heterosexuals" for all the other options. Then when it asked which sex I socialized with the most, I put guys b/c when I go out to bars and stuff it's with guys. Then for the future I put I'd like to socialize with both sexes. That makes me 11% gay???
I mean, if they could read my posts the numbers would probably be switched around, but they can't.

^Yeah, it's obviously a test that has easily read-through suspicious flaws based on a lot of social factors. Nevertheless, it's still interesting just for sparking a discussion or a follow-up to why's thread. I wouldn't take any percentage it tells you as anything indicative except of the way you self-report yourself. For example, it requires a sense of honestly that a lot of people don't have. Would a closet-case report ANYTHING about "homosexual?" Doubtful. He could play with the results such that even though he loves cocks, he still comes out "99% straight."

And to Rach too:

I think the test is using some things are proxies. Like hanging out with teh ghey. Straight people, by and large, are going to hang out with mostly straight people, as most people are straight. It's not the same as rejecting teh ghey, it's just bumping into the standard % of them in the general population. So they're using hanging out with more than the standard % of teh ghey, as a proxy for being teh ghey.

85% straight and 15% gay.

According to the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid, you are 87% straight and 13% gay. In subjective terms, this means you are predominantly heterosexual; only incidentally homosexual. No surprise here. I do socialize with gays (not that it matters), and prefer the company of both sexes when it comes to conversation. Though when it comes down to business I would much rather enjoy a taco than a sausage (does that make me Mexican?).

110% straight, as I expected.

Anyone care to discuss the implications of a test that presumes the nature of the question, i.e., people are x% one and 100-x% the other, rather than a binary state or even a shifting binary state (this week straight, last week gay)? What is this supposed to mean?

I would like to say that this test is completely fucking retarded. For starters:

Who are you attracted to emotionally? I'm attracted emotionally to people who are my friends. Some are men, some are women. My best friend is my brother, and many of my close friends are men, so I said both sexes. I suppose that tilted me into the gay category? WTF?

Same for social preference - who do I hang out with? I score with higher homosexuality because I have guy and girl friends?

And as for ideal lifestyle preference? As in "in which community do you like to spend your time? in which do you feel most comfortable? what is the sexual identity of the people with whom you socialize?" This question is insane. I don't have an ideal preference as to whether the people I hang out with are gay or straight. Even having to answer the question is silly.

Frankly, the whole exercise seems to me to be something invented by some social scientist who wanted to make a point. As in "See, Mr. Homophobe, even you are 15% gay, because you hang out mostly with guys."

If you've only fucked women, if you only want to fuck women, and you've never dreamed about fucking anything besides a woman, you're straight. If you've only fucked men, you only want to fuck men, and you've never dreamed about fucking anything besides a man, you're gay. And there's nothing wrong with that. We don't have to pretend we're part something we're not to get the progressive psychology warm and fuzzies.
