Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Study

Postby ritageorge » Sun Aug 24, 2014 1:36 am

What is your Sexual Orientation?
What Gender do you identify with?

Deakin University researchers would like to learn about how people without Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and with ASC experience their sexuality and come to understand their sexual orientation, whether it be heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, asexuality, questioning or pansexuality.
All are welcome.
You do not need a diagnosis of ASC to participate. Both Typically-developing persons and those on the ASC spectrum are most welcome :)

Please help us understand better and raise awareness of, and respect for the sexualities and gender-identities of people on the spectrum. We eventually hope to use this information to design more effective sex-education programs.

Check out this study by clicking on the link below. It should take about 20 minutes to complete.

Help us understand better! We thank you for your time and consideration.

Rita George.

I personally believe that this kind of stuff is taught in households, and will not be taught in schools. If the parents of a child are bigots and hate homosexuals, then more than likely, the child will hate them, too. I don't see the point of doing this... But... if you give me a reason, I might.

Thank you for your interest, Tyler 77.
It is hoped that through this study, we firstly ascertain the prevalence rates of sexual orientations within the Autism Community.
Secondly, we hope to understand how individuals with Autism experience their sexuality, so we can offer them the support needed, raise awareness and develop sex-education programs to help.

Kind regards,

Well I did it for fun. I'm not on the autism spectrum I don't think but I have some things in common with them to a degree so. You did say that people outside of the spectrum could fill out the survey.

Expect loads of people from Sri Lanka, for I shared this with a Facebook group of LGBT Straight alliance in Sri Lanka.

When you call about a spectrum, I think everyone is inclusive, including those who do not fall in to that category.

I'm straight, mostly. |I only feel romantic towards some men, rarely. It is 1/10 compared to that sexual attraction towards woman. I have kissed another man only twice or thrice. Can't even imagine anything beyond that. So I guess that is only romantic, non-sexual.

In my case, I feel I always was and will be whatever abstract parameter of sexuality that is innate to me. My earliest memory of being attracted to other men was when I was looking for britches as a four year old (my mom always let me pick my favorite pattern,) and I vented too far, ending up standing in the middle of the men's undergarment section.

As soon as I saw the cover photos of men's fit torsos close up, I felt an instant attraction and have been fantasizing about men (and later on, actually doing more than just that with men) ever since. I never had a problem with being a man myself, but overtime, I came to realize that even as a gay male, I didn't meet the standards of being a man. It also doesn't feel right when I attempt to think of myself as a woman. I believe I am outside the gender binary and am gender queer.
