In this case, the QDI included items like “Overall, I think minorities in Australia complain too much about ethnic discrimination,” and “I would feel OK about my best friend having a relationship with someone from a different ethnic group.” Lower QDI scores indicate a lower level of tolerance for multiculturalism and racial diversity.With both sets of survey results in hand, the researchers ran two regression analyses to test for any correlation between them.
Bisexuals are not portrayed so much for their mannerisms as their supposed habits.As a result, a het-seeming bisexual reads as Straight Gay, whereas a bisexual that acts Camp Gay is likely to be seen as subverting the stereotypes associated with a camp persona.Actual bisexual stereotypes are generally limited to glam rockers, hippies, swingers and other flamboyant presentations of alternative sexuality.Wrote one gay blogger, “Don’t tell me I can’t have a preference! It is also an argument that could soon be settled by emerging sociological research.A new Australian study published in Archives of Sexual Behavior entitled “Is Sexual Racism Really Racism? They aren't sociopaths or polymorphously perverse incarnations of uninhibited slutdom; they're just folks who can be attracted to both men and women.
Bi the Way is uncommon in mainstream media (though almost a logical necessity in others) in part because a lot of both straight and gay people appear to believe that bisexuals are somehow 'cheating' by playing both sides of the field.
The results are bad news for anyone who still believes that a disclaimer like “no blacks” is “just a preference.”“Almost every identified factor associated with men’s racist attitudes was also related to their attitudes toward sexual racism,” the researchers reported.
Or, phrased in a more optimistic way: “Men with more positive attitudes toward racial diversity and multiculturalism (on the QDI) tended to view sexual racism less positively.”This correlation strongly suggests that racial discrimination on gay dating apps can be attributed to racist attitudes and not, as so many maintain, to benign aesthetic preferences.
Respondents were asked whether or not they agreed with statements like “People who indicate a racial preference in their profile are not trying to offend anyone,” and “As long as people are polite about it, I see no problem in indicating a racial preference on my profile.” Remaining “neutral” was also an option.
The men were assigned scores based on their responses.
So in the end it's likely that Bob or Alice Bisexual will be outed in passing.
