Women find pictures of attractive women arousing, according to a recent article in the Independent, Women are never straight – they are either gay or bisexual, study suggests–thus concluding that women are inherently bisexual (or worse!).

“Although lesbians are much more attracted to females, most women who say they are straight were aroused by videos of both naked men and naked women,” the article said.

Sorry, folks this isn’t exactly breaking news. I’ll put in my two cents in a moment, but let’s hear a little more about the study that prompted this report.

“Even though the majority of women identify as straight, our research clearly demonstrates that when it comes to what turns them on, they are either bisexual or gay, but never straight,” said the author of the study, a psychology professor out of the University of Essex in England.

Isn’t it possible that what people react to (meaning both sexes) is the inherent beauty of women? Or, to put it another way, in our species, beauty resides in the female. So, of course, both men and women are going to find that women are beautiful (and arousing!).

Oh, yeah, you got Brad Pitt and George Clooney (and that new guy, Benedict Cumberbatch–ridiculous name, but I’d do him!). Handsome, sure. But the reality is that we all look to women, with their curves and softness, amazing breasts, round behinds, soft skin, and incredible faces, as the paragons of human beauty.

Pardon me, but it’s got nothing to do with sexual orientation.
