Article: "Why are so many girls lesbian or bisexual?"

It's articles like this one that are the reason I want to go into social science / sexuality research... although it occurs to me that no matter how much good science there is, magazines like Psychology Today will still probably find a way to pervert it (pun only sort of intended).

If you can't find the flaws in this article, time to go back to school.

I saw this and it pissed me off so much. Why are so many girls lesbian or bi? Hmmm, ask God that. Why are so many open about it now? Because the culture is changing and queer-sexuality is becoming more accepted.

Nah, clearly it's that guys are now losers. >.< What the hell?

And I love how the author is like, "Oh this one article talks about the gender differences in sexual attraction, and then Dr. Diamond proved a whole bunch of stuff about FEMALE sexual fluidity, so from the scant research on men and the prolific output of Dr. Diamond, I think it is fair to make a whooooole bunch of conclusions." Pro tip to this Ph.D.: You can't claim whatever you want just because you put some citation at the end.

I just don't understand how someone who is that educated can be so stupid when it comes to thinking about how our culture might affect the expression of sexuality, open and otherwise.

Wow, that's lame.

I thought the article would be about either how some girls fake bisexuality for their gross boyfriends (which happens), or how women are taking advantage of society's creepy fetish of gay women to exercise their true orientation (which I can't see not happening).

This, however, is just pretty stupid. The whole idea of women being gay because men suck is kind of an outdated cliche at this point.
