Poll question: DU sexuality poll
I'm curious to see the results of this self-descriptive poll about the sexuality of DUers.

Yes, it is really none of my business, but I'm curious.

It is my way of escaping the other forums for awhile on a Saturday afternoon.

Do you describe your sexuality as homosexual, bisexual or heterosexual?

I know I probably left out some other options-but these seem to be the big 3.

2. I've heard that term, but I'm ignorant of what that means.
Can someone define it for me?

5. No.
Ha.

I loathe the "word" because it's stupid and nasty pop culture and I'm fed to the teeth with today's cheap, ugly, ever-sexually-charged pop culture.

But that's just my humble opinion. Your mileage may vary.

61. It's also
a way for people to call others "fags" without using the word "fag" so that it sounds nicer.

45. Thanx, lionesspriyanka!
Upon hearing the term, I kinda thought that it might have had something to do with having sex with urban planners or doing it on public transportation-lol.

Now that means you're that person, or you nicked the same image from where that person nicked it...

LOL!

Of course, I could be wrong... lots of people probably do the old "close up of an eyeball" trick... :D

23. Boringly strait
Edited on Sun Feb-22-04 12:55 AM by populistmom
Maybe I would have experimented with alternatives if I didn't get married as young as I did, but I kind of doubt it really. I can be close to other women, but I don't look at another woman the same way I do as a man I find attractive. Men are just....too yummy. Even if at times they drive me loopy, I love how they speak, smell, taste, feel, and how we can be so mysterious to them at times too. I need a bit of yin with my yang (or yang with my yin?). I think I was born this way though, so don't hold it against me.

and don't try to tell me I am homo- or hetero- and just confused! I know I like both, but that doesn't mean I'll date (much less do) just anyone. It also doesn't mean I will do the sort of things you see in porn. Bi does not always translate directly into kinky. {/rant}

35. Queer As A Football Bat
I've known I was not like most other people since I was six years old; I remember being, uh, stimulated by a woman at age ten. I was about ten years old when I had my first crush on another female.

Yep, definitely queer as a football bat.

48. Plain-wrap straight...
Edited on Mon Feb-23-04 02:42 PM by rezmutt
I've always pursued the girls, even during the formative years ("Hey, let's play doctor!").

My older brother is gay, and I've had some very close gay friends over the years, so the concept of same-sex attraction isn't foreign to my life.

I just always wanted to sit next to a cute girl in class, or play spin the bottle with girls, or scout the room for a femme of "great biological significance," etc. Women have brought much joy, a fair amount of pain and craziness, but I couldn't imagine a life or a world without them.

Chalk it up to hard-wiring.

On edit: damned typos!
