    Sexuality is fluid. Glad it's not a taboo now. Brojobs are quite common they say. **** labels

    Exactly. Biologists talk about chromosome sex, gamete sex, gonad sex or another specific definition. If they use the term sex in published works they specify clearly which definition they're using (because they know chromosomal sex does not always equal gamete sex does not always equal gonad sex etcetc).

    There's no one definition for "sex" and most of the specific ones can't be strictly defined as a binary.

    Sex is complex. It's often presented as simple and a fair few scientists have a tendency to allow their own preconceptions to bias their work. It's only very recently that the incidence of chimerism has been properly investigated - scientists assumed it was rare enough to ignore until DNA testing for other reasons started throwing up more people than expected.

    If you are looking for sources "sexing the body" is pretty much the best introduction.
    I think a counterargument by me is in need, but for now I cannot access any scientific journals. I believe the beginnings of life, or the fertilisation of the egg, should be a good place for me to start my research. For now! Let's agree to disagree.

    How many people did this actually involve in it and was it actually in a lot of places?
    they asked 500 people, I don't know in what places they asked but i guess it was a online survey.

    Very flawed study. Performed by a marketing/advertisement company directly for the purpose of spreading this idea, rather than a partisan group using reliable and unbiased methods of sampling.

    Seems very unbiased and reputable.

    There's nothing else really to say.

    Well that's not exactly representative especially with what they're trying to say.

    Yeah I know but, last year there was a YouGov survey who implied the same, so i was curious if there is really a social shift.

    Im curious how many are men vs women.
    Yes, it completely flaws the results.

    The study was done in the US- the only country that is more PC/special snowflake than us.
    Sweden, Germany and Canada might disagree.

    A lot of stuff implies the same as other things, doesn't mean they're all right.

    Initially no, but now that I re-read it, it looks very sarcastic indeed. :lol:

    The study looks entirely non-credible. It says nothing of where the sample was taken from, and I suspect it was taken largely by those with a special interest in the subject area.

    I don't think that asexuality and its subcategories are even confirmed by medical science from my explorations on the subject, so to go as far as including grey-sexuality on the survey is preposterous. Why doesn't it have options for "Like, mostly hetero" or "Homo on Tuesdays"? I know people that identify by the ace umbrella and I've looked into it quite seriously seeing a self-likeness, but I don't believe that there is any evidence that the categories are necessary and not simply indicate of an extremely low sex drive.

    Back to my original point, a survey certainly shouldn't allow for it when credible doctors haven't even confirmed it. There is literally next to no published material.

    Not most teens. It's a US study. Ever heard of WEIRD?
