A recent study published in Scientific Reports on August 16, 2021, consisted of two experiments. In the first experiment, 180 cis-gender straight self-identified university students read papers on either sexuality being a spectrum, sexuality being about gay, straight, and bisexual, or about global warming. After reading the article, students who read the article about sexuality as a spectrum were more likely to then identify a non-heterosexual. In the second experiment, 460 cis-gender and straight self-identifying adults between the ages of 18 and 83 read similar articles as well as articles on sexuality being fluid or stable. Those who read the articles on sexuality being a spectrum or fluid were 36 and 20.7% respectively to then identify as non-heterosexual. In other words, as limiting as labels can be pithier than non-exclusive heterosexuals might help normalize same-sex attraction which the study suggests is way more common than we once thought. The future really is queer. Some people just need the additional vocabulary that they too might be.
