Evans (1972) discovered differences when considering males in height, fat, muscularity, a few bloodstream serum lipid levels, and androgen metabolites ( e.g., androsterone/etiocholanolone ratio). Although a few subsequent studies did not corroborate particular among these distinctions, others have effectively replicated a lot of them (Margolese and Janiger, 1973; Friedman et al., 1977). The HS men had less subcutaneous fat and smaller muscle/bone mass in Evans’s study. The HS topics additionally had reduced triglycerides, phospholipids, cholesterol levels, and beta-lipoproteins.
Considerable literary works exists comparing differences when considering HS and HT topics’ responses to sex-role and gender-typical behavioral measures ( ag e.g., Carroll, 1978; Weiss and Dain, 1979; for a current review, see Pillard, 1991). Hardly any efforts are made, nonetheless, to include BI topics this kind of studies to see if they are more like either the HS or the HT subject groups whether they fall, as might be expected, between the HT and HS samples on such measures, or. MacDonald (1983) cautioned that “Despite the suspected big variety of bisexually oriented individuals, there’s been very little research on bisexuality.” More crucial, that writer warns that most of the investigation on homosexuality is completely confounded by the addition of vast quantities of BIs as HSs making such research difficult to interpret.
One research making use of entirely mental measures as a initial make an effort to learn the type of bisexuality ended up being reported by Zinik (1985). He unearthed that their BI test exhibited the greatest degrees of just what he termed “cognitive freedom” (in comparison to HTs and HSs) and discovered no differences when considering topic teams on measures of anxiety, despair, and hostility.
