    I wonder if those who deem homosexuality to be a 'lifestyle choice' are predominantly from the 1-3 bracket on the scale. It would be easy to see how they could feel there is some sort of leeway (and therefore choice) regarding sexual orientation. Of course, that is no excuse for ignorance (i.e. those who cannot be bothered to educate themselves on the subject).

    I thought this was cute the first time I saw it but they ALL look gay to me. Kind of misleading.

    Yeah, it's probably closer to the gay masculinity scale. Although even the "0" end of the scale looks a little too feminine.

    Interesting that looking "feminine" equates with being gay ... I'm not sure that really covers all of gay-dom. Or man-kind, I should say ...

    There's a much better way of looking at hetero-to-homo sexuality than Kinsey's lateral spectrum, I think. I'm not sure who thought it up, but it's a circle. If I can dig up my copy of it, I'll scan it and post it.

    The basic difference is that, on this compass-like chart, it puts masculine men who like men on the top (12 o'clock), feminine men who like men on the bottom (6 o-clock), and then on the side axis (3 and 9 o'clock) are the heteros - manly men who prefer the company of other men but sleep with women, and men more in touch with their feminine side who also sleep with women. (Or something like that.) The chart also lists cultural/historical archetypes for each of these men. Gotta find it ...

    Well #3 seems to have the best overall build... which just goes to show: everything in moderation. icon_rolleyes.gif

    It seems to be more about underwear... that would make me a "3" right now, but I was a "5" last night.

    No.1 is such a power bottom I can't even.

    Anyway I've always been a 6. A 7 if possible.

    I thought the same thing. Especially #2, he may belong at the far right of the scale. And interesting they visualize being more gay as having fewer clothes. Where does that put the uniform boys, or the cross dressers?

    I judge myself a 5. I'd prefer 6, but I was talked into straight marriage by my parents, so I guess I'm capable of being "incidentally heterosexual."

    JackBlair69 saidYep - the more naked, the more gay.


    And evidently, the more straight, the more lonely.

    I'm a 4-5, depending on which number/frequency/disposition constitutes the difference between 'incidentally' and 'more than incidentally'....

    Well, he did say "looks like," not acts like.
