I'm too sure if this is really very... sound.
Straight (ish) means that I am heterosexual (sexual interest in women only), but in terms of romantic entanglements and an ability to see an aesthetic beauty, my tastes extend a little further. If I had to, I would class myself as heterosexual, but biromantic (which is to say I will only have sexual relationships with people of opposite genders, having no arousal when confronted with the same gender, but may maintain a romantic relationship with a male)heyheysg said:What is straight(ish)?MelasZepheos said:Wow. And I suppose the fact that I am utterly straight (ish), but last time I checked had more than 60% gay or bisexual friends, would mean I'm actually in the closet?
Man, this study must know me better than I know myself.
Either that or it's utter bullcrap.

Straight, gay, bi, they're words, it's what's behind the words you have to understand.heyheysg said:That's when he wants to pretend he's straight in order to call this study crap.
Seriously, nobody who's straight calls himself Straight(ish) sorry if I sound like a bigot, but that's just a fact.
(I have no problem of any kind with homosexuals)
Or just that women are impossible to understand?jamesworkshop said:The project focused on the "homophily principle," basically the fact that like attracts like
However, this same algorithm only worked to identify gay men; lesbians and bisexual men or women were not as easily outed.
Doesn't that make it seem like the "homophily principle," doesn't work that well if it only applies to gay men
Considering that they are MIT students, and this probably will get them their degree, I doubt it.Anticitizen_Two said:I can't believe these people have nothing better to do with their lives than design this algorithm. Hell, actually going on Facebook is probably more productive.
