#LHIFTB Bisexuality Study at Penn State

Hello my darlings!
Since I identify as queer, I chose to participate in this neat little study put together by Penn State. You might like to as well. It says below it will take you no more than 15 minutes, but it only took me the most. They don't ask you for any identifying information, like name, address, etc. Maybe you've got 2 minutes to spare. If so, read on:

  1. Interesting survey - seems to be primarily about jealousy, with a bisexual sub-group, but I'd be curious to see how the answers differ from a heterosexual group.
