An article posted on Indy100 titled 'A surprising number of straight people are having same-sex experiences, study reveals' came out and people were just shaking their heads. There's one glaring thing about this that stands up harder than a morning boner after a night of getting blue-balled by a college coed who passed out before you could finish.  It's quite logical - if you're having gay sex, then you're not exactly straight anymore. Isn't the gay sex part what makes it gay?



Are people really having sex with people of the same sex and run around calling themselves straight? Nah - you're not really straight anymore if you're having all this gay sex.

The study only researched 383 men and 312 women, but it had some very weird results that pointed to the gayness, which makes you wonder if this was conducted in a liberal college in California.

This is the official finding of a recently-published study, which analysed survey data from more than 24,000 undergraduate students. Research homed in on 383 men and 312 women, all of whom said that their last hook-up was with a same-sex partner. Of these respondents 12 per cent of men and 25 per cent of women identified as heterosexual.
According to the published abstract, there were a number of factors which differentiated these straight-identifying respondents from their gay, bisexual or ‘uncertain’ counterparts:
Differences… included more conservative attitudes, less prior homosexual and more prior heterosexual sexual experience, features of the hook-ups, and sentiments about the encounter after the fact.
Researchers then expanded by saying that some students claimed they hadn’t enjoyed their same-sex encounter, whereas others were just indulging in sexual experimentation in order to test their limits.
Others admitted to being guilty of Katy Perry-style ‘performative bisexuality’ – in other words, necking off with a same-sex partner to arouse or provoke – whereas a higher percentage said their religious practices and beliefs "preclude[d] a non-heterosexual identity".
It’s important to remember that sexuality labels are just that – labels. Some choose to identify with them, others don’t; on the other hand, the number of identifiers at our disposal is rapidly expanding alongside our increasing knowledge of gender and sexuality.
What these results do suggest is that identity is inherently political. The fact that conservative attitudes were cited as a popular reason for identifying as straight highlights that there is still some societal stigma attached to terms like ‘gay’, as the recent rise of alt-right androphiles highlighted.
On the other hand, studies have described millennials as the queerest generation ever, statistics which indicate that today’s students are simply more open to experimentation.

We all knew the millennials were the worst possible generation. Being gay or straight isn't connected to politics. There are plenty of gay conservatives and plenty of straight millennials who are likely liberals. There's not even anything wrong with being gay. It's completely fine if that's what you want to do. 

The problem is that once you start having gay sex and necking with people, then stop calling yourself straight. Just be honest with yourself no matter what your sexual preference is. Then websites can stop saying straight people are having gay sex. No, they're not. Gay people are having gay sex - and it's fine. Be as gay as you want, just stop calling it straight sex.

Look, if you're a guy and you're jerking off other guys - you're gay. If you're a girl who goes down on other girls, then you're gay too - and more than welcome in this house! Wink Wink ladies! Come get some action.
