He said that researchers focus on these aspects in a singular way, thus failing to give a more holistic picture and 'over-coniffiring position'.
Castle said. "We will always struggle with putting categories on sexual orientation. Because sexual orientation involves a set of different life experiences over time, the categories will always feel artificial and stable. "
According to the news agency ANI, research prepared nine categories (four men and five women), which would better describe the spectrum of different sexes. For men, these are 'straight', 'mostly straight or bi', 'rising gay' and 'minimal sexual expression'. For women, categories are 'straight', 'mostly straight off', 'emerging bi', 'rising gay' and 'minimal sexual relationship'.
At least the changes were seen in the straight square, and female sexuality was more liquid than men.
This inclusive approach will help in identifying sexual minorities and help them in providing public health.
