I'm pretty upset with the administration for upholding this kid's "free speech" which is actually more like hate speech. This is a complete non-sequitir but it was on my mind.)

    Informed consent is a requirement for studies. No reputable journal would publish a study if they weren't ensured that the patient had given it.

    I thought the general consensus was that our sexuality was innate. Where else could it come from but from ourselves?

    Wouldn't quadruple blind mean that the computer didn't know because it wiped itself so that you couldn't figure out which group was the control group?

    I have a suspicion that emphasizing the possibility of them receiving a placebo would increase their paranoia that they were one of the ones getting a placebo and muck with the results, though, I must admit, I'm not very familiar with what information is released to people as they're entering into such studies.

    Like most things it's probably a mix between nurture and nature. And sexual fluidity is also a thing, quite a few people's sexualities shift~

    Edit: My point was more that it doesn't and shouldn't matter whether it's a choice or not or what the origins are. Being queer itself isn't harmful so the origins aren't relevant to how one should feel about queerness.

    Ditto. Although our resevoir is at a record low at the moment. Fortunately for conservation, I can't take showers nearly as long as I would like nowadays, on account of having to get up as early as I do.

    Ditto again. I don't think it's that good of an idea, but I have to be able to work it into their schedules. My mom's is very fluid, and while that means it will be easy for her to take the time in the middle of the day to go with me, it also means I have to get into her schedule as soon as possible, so she doesn't book that time.

    My dad's schedule is very strict (and is likely going to be the harder one to work around), and so I have to let him know well ahead of time so that he can get the time off approved. And if I tell him, he's going to tell my mom, so either way they're both going to find out about the same time.

    I'd love to be able to have it only be a couple of days, but I have no idea how to do it. The other thing that's going to be awkward is the drive there. Let's just say that I didn't pick my therapist based on the convenience of her location. We have to drive for nearly an hour to get there. What are we going to say?

    Regarding Showers: Going from sharing a shower in college to having a shower all to myself was terrible for my water bill. For the past two years, one of my roommates and his girlfriend would "have fun" in the shower for 2-3 hours on weekends, which fortunately didn't kill the heat but did leave anyone else who wanted to do anything productive on those days little time for showering; now, I can take hour-long showers if I want to so I can relax after long days at work, and I frequently do.

    Regarding nature-vs.-nurture: I'm leaning heavily towards the all-or-at-least-mostly-nature side. I'm between a 5.5 and a 6 on the Kinsey scale, have known as far back as I can remember, and was in a conservative religious environment that was not at all conducive to or supportive of being gay; if something somehow accidentally managed to turn me gay despite all that, I'd be very impressed.

    Regarding SOs: Less than a month now until the BF moves to the area, and I'm counting down the days....

    Regarding something else: Weekend plans! A friend of mine from high school, who I haven't really kept in touch with and recently reconnected with, recently moved to the area and rented an apartment with three roommates, sight-unseen, without knowing anything about the various San Francisco neighborhoods. Turns out the four of them, all straight, are living in the Castro, on the main drag between a gay bar on one side, a dance club on the other, and a strip club across the street. He has invited me and some mutual friends in the area to go exploring the Castro with him this weekend, for the novelty value I suppose. I haven't come out to him yet since this is the first time I've seen him in years, and so will be coming out to him at the most opportune moment. Should be an interesting weekend.

    Kinsey Scale. A somewhat outdated measure of how gay or straight you are. 0 is entirely heterosexual and 6 is entirely homosexual. I imagine most people are around a .5-1. I'm about a 2.5.

    I saw a similar variant used in a survey once, the only difference being that it went from 0 to 9. I wrote in √(-1). (I cannot believe that I remember Alt-251 is the root symbol.)

    Huh. Now I want to try and place myself, but that's proving to be rather difficult - do I measure from the viewpoint of sex, or gender? I would assume he meant it for sex, but that doesn't sit all that well with me anymore.

    Oh, well. Thanks for informing me! This thread is both fun and educational!

Certainly I occasionally fantasize about being female and having a boyfriend. I just have a strong aversion to the idea of me with a male body being with another male.
    I used to feel like that, but I've gotten either more open or more desperate as time goes by. Prolly helps that most of the people my flirting works on tend to be male.

    I don't believe humans can voluntarily change their sexual orientation (well, not with the inadequate neurological technology humans have developed as of this writing anyway), and from my own experience I have to wonder how much of it is a matter of posturing rather than substance, but I also don't believe that it's fixed before it develops. So... other people's opinions?
    Yeah... I think it developed during 6th grade, when girls and boys looked different, other than hair length and sounded drastically different. Until then I was attached to anyone, but my conservative, republican, Christian, sheltered child mind only registered with girls that this attachment could be one of those special things between a boy and a girl. Then when I found out it was possible to like boys like that (and never liking girl I that way) a whole slough of new and intense emotions and feelings(oh, *generic overdeity* the first time I wanted/felt desire for a person. Wow!) that I had no idea existed, so I guess some of both. I'd still be "straight" if not for the Internet and a definite list of friends.
    And so doth the winds of destiny change my course for better or worse for the whole of time.

    Re: poledancing: I said there's nothing inherently problematic about it, it's the stripper connotations. Again, you can't just say it doesn't have them. Maybe we're having the cultural divide again, but when it's "pole-dancing" as opposed to "gymnastics" or "acrobatics" or "break-dancing" that happen to include poles, that's what people are talking about, at least here. Also, everyone has been supporting Helio's new hobby, all that happened was I said it wasn't for me, and then, foolishly, elaborated.

    You might consider a reexamination of your techniques if that's undesired then, as if they're anything like how you flirt here, as just from what I've observed I would have just guessed your intended target audience was men.

    Well thank you! ... There are a few other things I could bring up, I'm afraid, but I'm definitely going to tell him about this!

    My PM box is open too, but I won't be offended if you want to talk to someone with more relevant experience.

    That's an incredibly bothersome cycle. Hope things work out soon. If you need to vent or whatever I've been practicing being an amateur therapist.

    Good luck! (I don't remember if I saw your first post in this mess of new thread pages.) If you'd like I can read it for you. My PM box is pretty empty.

    I only really flirt on the playground, rather than Flirting. The former is just for funzies. Genuine romantic desire would be much less... blunt. Until the point where, unable to see through the mists of subtlety, I ask directly 'are we still joke-flirting?'

    You measure it as a woman because you are a woman. Anyone who thinks anything else either doesn't have all the facts or is acting like a ****.

    Someday you will depart, but till that distant day
    Sing, and dance.
    Eat your fill of warm cooked food and cool jugs of beer.
    Cherish the children your love gave life.
    Bathe away life's dirt in warm drawn waters.
    Pass the time in joy with your chosen wife.

    Thanks, hon! Actually, I'm lucky, my best friend works at a helpline and might become a therapist when she's older. So she's being very patient with my fairly frequent teary phone calls these days.

    What does it say about me that I read the "****" as "butt"?

    That's why we have androsexual/gynosexual.
    And fluidsexual. That's a word now.

    That's good. I'm a pretty bad therapist anyway.
    I'm just starting up seeing a therapist here as of Monday. I think I'll be working on anxiety because my depression is pretty under control right now and anxiety just makes it worse, so I want to work on that first.
