Pseudo-Science at the beck and call of Homosexual Activists

For a long time it's been an ignored sore point, that while so many homosexuals insist they were born that way, the existence of bisexuals throws a wrench into that claim. Homosexuals are quick to say that many heterosexuals are actually homosexuals, denying their true self, but refuse to consider the opposite, or even the idea that they might be bi-sexual, and denying that. The solution? A bogus science study that claims -- hey -- there are no bisexuals!

The study, by a team of psychologists in Chicago and Toronto, lends support to those who have long been skeptical that bisexuality is a distinct and stable sexual orientation.

People who claim bisexuality, according to these critics, are usually homosexual, but are ambivalent about their homosexuality or simply closeted. "You're either gay, straight or lying," as some gay men have put it.

In the new study, a team of psychologists directly measured genital arousal patterns in response to images of men and women. The psychologists found that men who identified themselves as bisexual were in fact exclusively aroused by either one sex or the other, usually by other men.

Why do I call it bogus? Because sexual desire is not that simple, and changes from moment to moment. We all know that sometimes we're in the mood, and sometimes we're not, and one quick picture is not likely to change that. The idea that a person who is attracted to both genders, might be so at different times (depending on the mood) is never considered. Falsifiable criteria like that must be considered and taken into account in any real scientific study, but here, it's conveniently ignored.

Let me explain it better this way. Let's say you're on a date with a person you find attractive, and the date's going well. But, about midway through the date, the person's roommate rushes up to tell them that they have to go do something. The date apologizes and leaves, but the roommate stays. Are you instantly going to start feeling toward the roommate like you did your date? Not unless you're some kind of shallow rake that views people of the opposite sex as things to be played with. desire is not a light switch that can be turned on and off in a moment -- yes, even for guys.

But pseudo-science is nothing new to homosexual activists. There have been plenty of bogus “scientific” studies done specifically to prove a certain point, always done by ignoring obvious flaws, but making grandiose claims. This one is no different. I was actually wondering when they'd get around to doing something like this, since the existence of bi-sexual attraction defies the claims homosexual activists make about the very nature of homosexuality.
