In honor of the most colorful month of the year, let’s talk about why everyone is a little bit gay!
And why you should explore that burning desire that church’s pray so hard for you to push down.
Which, in my experience, eventually manifests itself as anger and bitterness.
And possibly cancer (probably not true, but it’s my own personal theory)!
Let’s Talk Science:
The Kinsey Scale
Way back in the 1900s, the Kinsey Scale was thrust into existence by Alfred Kinsey, Wardell Pomeroy, and Clyde Martin.
Also known as the Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale, this scale was introduced the idea that sexuality is not binary.
Meaning you are not strictly either homosexual or heterosexual.
You most likely fall somewhere in the middle when it comes to sexual attraction, and it is entirely natural.
This model is now considered to be outdated because it did not account for the approximately 46 different sexual orientations nor the 64 different gender identities.
So for neglecting the unpredictability of human nature, it is no longer used today.
But, it’s always good to know where the idea of everyone being a bit gay started from and know that I am not just talking out of my ass.
A better and more updated version of The Kinsey Scale would be the lovely and colorful Genderbread Person.
The explains how sexuality “works”, and how it intertwines with sexual orientation, romantic attraction, gender expression, and identity.
This diagram is easy to comprehend, and I recommend that everyone go check it out (Click here to see diagram).
Why Do You Think Everyone Is Gay, Mia?
Now that you know that everyone is not 100% hetero or homo, let’s discuss why.
In my in-depth research of trying to find an answer as to why humans cannot fit into filing cabinets with perfectly marked labels, the best explanation I found was that sexuality is a spectrum.
It is impacted by someone’s life experiences, traumas, biology, psychology, and possibly other -ologies, that I can’t think of right now.
And if you ask me, that’s pretty fucking dope.
We’re Complex Fucking Beings
In our society, we are taught that we are either one thing or another and that there is no in between.
For instance, at a young age, you are told to choose a career, and you are expected to stick with that for the rest of your life.
I’m not sure about you, but when I was 10, I told my grandparents that I wanted to be a doctor, and at the ripe age of 22 with multiple major changes and my chronic indecisiveness, they are still waiting for me to show them my application to medical school.
And now I am writing about sex for the internet to judge.
I changed and what I wanted my life to look like changed and that’s what sexuality is.
It’s change and development.
It grows with you.
Your preferences change and your curiosity expands, and if no one has ever told you this… IT’S OKAY AND NOT A BIG FUCKING DEAL!
If anything it’s fantastic because you get to try something new!
So if you have always been curious about what it’s like to kiss a girl, then kiss a girl! In terms of this topic, I always like to remember what someone much wiser than me once said.
Amen. No truer words have been spoken.
Sexuality Is A Spectrum
As I told you before, sexuality is a spectrum.
As your life changes your preferences and taste in partners, sex positions, and whatever changes with you!
Give it a chance, and if someone ever tries to give you shit for being curious about what sucking dick feels like, tell them that it’s scientifically proven that humans are not 100% straight, and curiosity is what makes life fun.
But if you continue to shame yourself for being curious or wanting to try something new, you are just going to be counting down the minutes until your life is over.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a lot of work.
I’d rather finger a girl and see if I like it or not so I can move on with my life.
Plus, if I like it, my chances of getting dates doubles!
But I digress.
As you can probably tell, I am all for people trying new things.
Top 5 Reasons Why You’re A Little Bit Gay
As promised here are MY top 5 reasons why everyone is a little bit gay:
- Sexuality is a spectrum. As you change, it changes.
- Sexual orientation and sexual behavior are not mutually exclusive (just because you kiss a man doesn’t mean you like men, maybe you like their personality)
- Your life experiences impact your sexuality
- It is strongly suggested by science
- Your curious and waiting for a sign to tell you whether or not it’s okay
- Spoiler Alert: It is!
Are You A Little Bit Gay?
So this post either did one of the following things:
- Make you laugh because there is no way you can be attracted to the same sex.
- Have you rethinking about all those times that you seemed a little too obsessed with a person of the same sex.
- Given you some relief because you’ve known all long that sexuality is not a black and white.
