Today the iron curtain between gay and straight is crumbling. The Bible Belt is being unbuckled. For the “whatever” generation, dating a girl one week and a guy the next is no big deal. Young people may be out of step with their parents’ generation, but they may be in step with the latest scientific research on the nature of human love and sexuality.
In the last two years, groundbreaking scientific research has forced Americans to reconsider their notions about love and sexuality. The 2005 New York Times article, “Straight, Gay or Lying: Bisexuality Revisited,” reported on a study from Northwestern University, which found that all women are bisexual, whereas no men are bisexual. In the same year, a CDC study found that 11.5% of women ages 18 to 44 have had a same-sex sexual encounter, up from 4.5% ten years ago. Neuroscientists are mapping the neural pathways that link sexual arousal, romantic love, and attachment, helping to explain the complexity of attraction.
