What?


Ask if the respondent lied, so you know the rate of accuracy on the survey.

Ask if the respondent is a bot, and request no lying, so you avoid getting responses by survey-answering-bots.

Most people don't self-identify as bisexual, and I think what you self-identify as is too important a component of sexual orientation for so many people to be wrong about it.

Anyway, here's my questionnaire:

What is your age? 22
Gender? Male
Sexual orientation? Heterosexual
Ethnicity? Indian and White American
Nationality & Location? USA & USA
How would you describe your socioeconomic status? Graduate student and middle class
Do you ascribe to or are a member of any religion? No
Did you ever read print comics before web comics? Not much
Did you ever read “underground” comics? I don't know what that means.
Do you identify yourself with any set of political principles? Not really. Though my political views are relatively liberal.
Do you identify with or are you a member of a political party? If so which one? I am a member of the Democratic Party, but I don't identify as a Democrat. I just love voting in primaries.
Do you consider yourself informed on matters of politics? If so, how do you stay informed? Yes. National Public Radio. Specifically, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me". I also read the NY Times every once and again.
How long have you been reading web comics? About four years.
In no order of importance please name your 3 favorite comics. Dinosaur Comics AKA chewbac.ca, xkcd, Buttersafe. I'm also personally fond of my own comic.

The sampling bias on this data is pretty crazy if it is supposed to represent webcomic readers as a whole. Because the sample is actually xkcd readers that signed on to the forum that chose to volunteer you information. You'll have a lot to apologize for in your methods section.

I am so very sick of the 'everyone is Bi' line. No. Not everyone is bisexual. Even on an axis there is 100%. That is a fun little fact of statistics. Trying to feed that to people is wrong.

To be anecdotal about it: I can guarantee to you, that as I am now (and I can say with 99.9r% certainty I will continue to be throughout my life) I will never find a man attractive. That isn't bisexual. I would rather kill myself than have sex with a man. I say that in utmost seriousness.

So, don't say I'm bisexual, don't tell the gays they're bisexual, don't tell the straights they're bisexual. Tell the bis they're bisexual. Because you can't define other people, only they can define themselves.

/rant

Also, in calmer terms, what GodShapedBullet said.

(Note for the uninformed. You have to realise that I do not understand ranting very well, and don't get angry. It is meant to be read in a quiet, sad way.)

I beg to differ. I am 1000% positive I will never, ever have sex with a man.


How can you be 1000% percent positive?

Anyway, any claim that you're 100% sure about anything that isn't a priori knowledge is total BS :-).

Heh....everybody has put down xkcd.

This thread has been pretty useful to me. I had never heard of questionable content before now, and it's pretty cool. Gonna look at piled higher and deeper next.

On an unrelated note, a friend asked me what phd meant and I looked at him and responded "piled higher and deeper". Awesome.
