I don't really understand what it means to be "incidentally homo/heterosexual". Little help?

I'm bi, which means I am neither heterosexual nor homosexual.

I have no idea when all these new sexual orientations were invented. Back in my day there were only 3 things:

You were straight
You were gay
You swing both ways

That was it. Now all of a sudden there's 15+ different sexual orientations because millennials feel the need to "express themselves."

In my case I'm as straight as an arrow.

Does it really count as straight if you've never touched a woman?

It's a case of all these social outcasts teaming up together an fascist alt-left people who give them a voice in the name of SJW and relevancy.

If you want to consider yourself one 20+ genders then knock yourself out and live your life fully but the moment you want me to refer to you as Zer or refer ro myself as cis then you're ****ing nuts. And I'm not kidding just take a look at how the alt-left bullies people and want to make it a crime if you don't use one of their gender pronouns they invented to make themselves feel special.

Come on, ya bunch of toonophiles, be honest.


Never had any same-gender interests. Straight as ninjato, but without the fakeness.

Of all polls to have names visible though... Will pass, feels a bit too segregating in a way.

Exclusively a one-man woman though I HAVE at least considered the notion of trying out "other flavors" during those odd moments of letting myself fantasize what that might be like.

LMAO what's with the odd threads tonight?

I am a heterossexual cis-het privileged male(did I say that right, plastron?).

I don't think sexuality is so simple you can put it on a scale like this. I mean incidentally homossexual? What does that even mean?

I don't think the Kinsey scale was intended to be used in this manor. It's a bit like conducting a Myers Briggs test, but skipping the test part and just asking people which personality type they were.

I don't know that the answer would be that useful to people anyway - you like who you like, so who needs an official classification?!

Not really.

Het is short for heterosexual, so it's redundant.
Either you're EXTRA STRAIGHT or you're using it like a double negative, and gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous.

Kinsey's Spectrum was revolutionary for the time, and works really well provided you view sexuality like a binary...which a lot of people don't.
Me included.
Again, I'm bi...I'm not equally homosexual and equally heterosexual.
The same way a futon isn't equally a couch and a bed. It's still a futon.

As for the question of "incidentally homosexual," that to me seems like a question of whether or not a person would find themselves with a same sex attraction should the proper situation/person present(s) it/themselves.

I've heard more than a few straight guys talk about the one dude they'd sleep with.
That'd be incidental homosexuality.

Though I wouldn't consider a guy who had a one-nighter with...crap...who do guys find attractive as guys? Jason Momoa?
Yeah, a straight guy who has a one-nighter with Jason Momoa...isn't suddenly gay. He's a straight guy who had a one-nighter with Jason Momoa.

As well you should! Goodness knows I did.
It's from Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimen.

Had to Google to find my answer in the terms listed. I'm straight, even though I've never actually had any romantic stuff happen in my life.
