Phoebe Buffay, wise woman?

Phoebe Buffay:
Sometimes men love women,
Sometimes men love men.
And then there are bisexuals,
Though some just say they're kidding themselves...
A new study suggests [NYTimes article] at least some bisexual men really are kidding themselves...

PS: good critique of the NYTimes article by Majikthise here.

PPS: Even better critique by Chris of Mixing Memory here. Sounds like the spin on the study given in the NYTimes article is pretty bogus!

in re the comments re bisexuality. i have taken care of any number of people who have exhibited bisexual behavior. among the males, the vast majority were either men whose fundamental orientation was homosexual but who felt social pressure to involve themselves with women. a second group were in the mania phase of bipolar disorder and suffered from hypersexuality. a third and rather small group constituted those individuals who sought risk-taking behavior throughout their lives but who never properly qualified as bipolar. lastly, were adolescent males in whom sexual identity emerged in a state of flux and who had brief homosexual attractions and had a paucity of encounters.

liked yr other comments. intelligently written- esp for the web which for the most part is a public bastion of solecisms and half-truths, if you will allow the oxymoron.

Interesting observations! Like this study though, I suspect your sample might be biased (i.e., they were psychiatric patients, if I judge correctly from your other comment)...

The latter, Web 2.0, is not defined as a static architecture. Web 2.0 can be generally characterized as a common set of architecture and design patterns, which can be implemented in multiple contexts. bu sitede en saglam pornolar izlenir.The list of common patterns includes the Mashup, Collaboration-Participation, Software as a Service (SaaS), Semantic Tagging (folksonomy), and Rich User Experience (also known as Rich Internet Application) patterns among others. These are augmented with themes for software architects such as trusting your users and harnessing collective intelligence. Most Web 2.0 architecture patterns rely on Service Oriented Architecture in order to function
