Yeah, I've thought of that, and it might be the simple way to go. Of course, the problem with the test actually stating "member of the same sex" for ALL test takers makes some questions a bit meaningless for heterosexuals. i.e. if you play sport competitively, odds are you have been seen naked by a member of the same sex in the changing rooms. So that's why I say I'm not quite sure how to rephrase the questions to make them neutral.

Well, I don't think the questions really need much real rephrasing (see my above post, although come to think of it, MOS could be changed to MPS... member of preferred sex), but we definitely should have some questions on there pertaining specifically to bi/gaysexuality (yes, I just made up that word) as I think there's a purity loweringness there (yes, another word I just made up), not because it's dirtier, but because it's something it takes more confidence and bravery to participate in.

Maybe instead of MOS, you could put "partner" or "prospective partner"...? Or just "someone".

I'll rephrase that to "used alcohol to lower somebody's resistance".

MPS would work for most of the run-of-the-mill sort of questions ...

Word-invention ...

Random: I like the word trysexual... meaning I'll try anything once.

But I just realized it sounds like tricycle.


I'm really tired. I get stupid when I'm tired.

Oooh, I like MPS. Let's run with that.

So if I change all MOS references to MPS, what do you (or anybody else) suggest for questions re: homosexuality/bisexuality? What you've suggested already, or something else?

Ack. I told my housemate the Cats were just playing with the Tigers... maybe it wasn't deliberate, but there you are.
