    Asked to plot themselves on a 'sexuality scale', 23% of British people choose something other than 100% heterosexual – and the figure rises to 49% among 18-24 year olds Invented by Alfred Kinsey in the 1940s, the Kinsey scale plots individuals on a range of sexual dispositions from exclusively heterosexual at 0 through to exclusively homosexual at 6. Where the original study had a large number of methods for placing people, YouGov simply asked people to place themselves on the sexuality scale.Taken as a whole, 72% of the British public place themselves at the completely heterosexual end of the scale,...

    When faux black Rachel Dolezal was offered a reality show, I thought: thats it, this farce is now complete; it perfectly encapsulates our tawdry age of moonbattery run amok. Then when we learned of a Rachel Dolezal sex tape, I thought: okay, it wasnt complete before, but now it is. Yet the story still wasnt finished. Rachel Dolezal had not yet proclaimed herself to be a polysexual pervert: Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP President accused of misrepresenting her race and masquerading as a black woman, revealed she is bisexual in an interview with NBC Nightly News.

    Oregon became the third state in the United States to ban gay conversion therapy, a practice that has attracted much debate. Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed the bill into law earlier this week, though an ex-gay group has protested and called the bill "child abuse." CNN reported on Wednesday that the bill signed by Brown, the first openly bisexual governor in the U.S., will block therapist from offering conversion or reparative therapy on individuals who are younger than 18. Laws against the practice have also been made in California, New Jersey, and Washington D.C. While the American Psychological Association has...

    For months, concerns over what Gov. John Kitzhaber has called the "gray area" between his 47-year-old fiancee's private and professional lives haunted the longtime politician through his 2010 election, his third term in office, his historic bid for a fourth term and the weeks since his January inauguration. Kitzhaber's problems came to a head Friday, when the former emergency room physician resigned from office, effective Feb. 18. His decision came after a week of political drama, which Secretary of State Kate Brown called "bizarre and unprecedented" and which has absorbed this normally quiet capital. Under the state constitution, Brown...

    One of former President Bill Clintons ex-mistresses, Gennifer Flowers, claims that Bill told her Hillary Clinton was bisexual. Flowers, who hasnt been relevant since 1992, came out during Clintons first presidential campaign and said that the two had had a 12-year affair while he was the governor of Arkansas. Clinton has long maintained that he only had one sexual encounter with Flowers. But in an interview with The Daily Mail published Thursday, Flowers, now 63 and definitely not desperate for fame, claims that she would still be with Clinton the love of [her] life had it not been...

Clinton, now 67, also shared a lot of intimacies regarding his marriage to Hillary. They left Gennifer in no doubt that the union is far from traditional. She said: What they have is very strong. It obviously worked for them but Ive never considered theirs a traditional marriage.

    A Democratic state House hopeful who was accidentally outed as a bisexual by a party colleague earlier this year has withdrawn from his race. Nate Murphy of Pocatello had sought election in District 29. In March, he was accidentally outed after Idaho's only openly gay lawmaker, Sen. Nicole LeFavour of Boise, told The New York Times that Murphy would be taking up her legacy. Murphy's former campaign manager, Ryan Hand, said personal issues prompted the 23-year-old candidate's departure from the race, not the outing. Murphy also had faced questions about a marijuana conviction five years ago. Hand declined to provide...

It was hard to imagine little Chastity becoming "Chaz" after discovering her born lesbianism. But, wait a minute, if she was born a lesbian, why would she undergo semi gender-change surgery? (The semi surgery only includedan upper half alteration - or breast reduction). Even the very progressive David Letterman was confused and confounded by his awkward sounding guest.

    Malcolm X was born 80 years ago today, on 19 May 1925. But amid the commemorations, controversy is brewing. Some black activists are enraged by suggestions that their hero might have been gay - or at least bisexual. The controversy has been stirring since the publication of Bruce Perry's acclaimed biography, Malcolm: The Life of a Man Who Changed Black America (Station Hill, New York) in 1991. Based on interviews with Malcolm's closest boyhood and adult friends, Perry suggests that the US black nationalist leader was not as robustly heterosexual as his Nation of Islam (NoI) colleagues have always insisted....

Rates of the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia are climbing in the U.S., and rates of syphilis -- once on the verge of elimination -- rose for the seventh consecutive year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday in its annual report on STDs. Gonorrhea rates did not increase, but they ceased falling a few years ago, frustrating goals set by public health leaders. Chlamydia infections in the United States now...

    Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said in interview excerpts released Friday that Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden should be executed, if he is ever captured alive. The Illinois Senator told CNN that the accused mastermind of the September 11 attacks in 2001 should face the full weight of US and global justice. "I am not a cheerleader for the death penalty," Obama said. "I think it has to be reserved for only the most heinous crimes, but I certainly think plotting and engineering the death of 3,000 Americans justifies such an approach." "I think this is a big hypothetical, though...

    WASHINGTON, June 13 (Xinhua) -- U.S. presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his Republican rival John McCain failed in reaching an agreement on Friday to hold ten "town hall"-style meetings where they are supposed to answer questions directly from a small audiences.

    A crack team of cybernauts will form a rapid response internet war room to track and respond aggressively to online rumours that Barack Obama is unpatriotic and a Muslim. As he gears up for his general election fight against John McCain, Mr Obama and his chief advisers are aware of the danger of such rumours, amid polling data showing that a significant number of Americans believe he is a Muslim or are suspicious about his background. Such doubts were a factor in his poor showing with white, blue-collar voters during his primary battle with Hillary Clinton. In recent days Mr...

    How black is too black? Millions of African-Americans celebrated Barack Obamas historic victory, seeing in it a reflection sudden and shocking of their own expanded horizons. But whether Mr. Obama captures the White House in November will depend on how he is seen by white Americans. Indeed, some people argue that one of the reasons Mr. Obama was able to defeat Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was that a large number of white voters saw him as postracial. In other words, Mr. Obama was black, but not too black. But where is the line? Does it change over time?...

    Barack Obamas favorability ratings among white women have significantly depreciated in recent months, particularly among Democrats and independents, posing an immediate obstacle for the likely Democratic nominee as he moves to shore up his partys base. According to a new report by The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, half of white women now have a negative perception of Obama. Forty-nine percent of white women view Obama unfavorably, while only 43 percent hold a favorable opinion. In February, 36 percent of these women viewed Obama unfavorably while 56 percent had a positive perception of the likely Democratic...

In the same interview, Obama praised the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his former pastor and long-time spiritual adviser, for being on the right side of the homosexual debate. "There's plenty of homophobia to go around, but you have a unique...
