New Study: Gay and Bi Men are Happier than Straights
What’s gay and bi and in a really good mood?
Often seen as one of the defining moments of a gay, lesbian or bisexual person’s life, “coming out of the closet” may have tangible health benefits, and “out” gay people may have less anxiety and stress than heterosexuals, according to a new study, published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine, by researchers at the University of Montreal.
“Our research suggests coming out of the closet has some health benefits,” says Robert-Paul Juster, the study’s lead author. “Coming out is no longer a matter of popular debate, but a matter of public health.”
I would suggest that the correlation between happiness and sexual identity has less to do with boys smooching boys instead of girls, and more to do with the fact that straight boys insist on wearing boxer briefs under their bathing suits, which simply cannot be comfortable.
Who’s with me on this one?
