Gays and Republicans Both Love Subway (thank god, I was concerned) According to a recent study from YouGov BrandIndex that asked consumers about positive or negative gossip on current brands, members of both parties ranked Subway as one of the brands with the most positive buzz over the last six months. Others ranking highly were Ford, Amazon, and Netflix. For the first time, the survey also tracked brands’ images among LGBT consumers. Their top brands during the first six months of 2011? YouTube, Google, Netflix, and Amazon were the highest rated. LGBT people also ranked Apple, iPhone, and iPad in the top 10 of the technology-dominated list, and they loved Subway too.
Small Penis? You May Be a Bottom Turns out Republicans and gay men do have something in common: They’re both unhappy with a new study the National Institutes of Health subsidized in order to find out if a gay man’s penis size has any correlation to his sexual health According to The Daily Caller, the Hunter College Center for HIV/AIDS Educational Studies Training research, titled “The Association between Penis Size and Sexual Health Among Men Who Have Sex With Men,” was initiated in 2006 and surveyed 1,065 gay men. Among its key findings: Those gay men who felt they had small or inadequate penis sizes were more likely to become “bottoms,” or anal-receptive, while gay men with larger penises were more likely to identify themselves as “tops,” or anal-insertive. Another discovery from the research: Men with smaller penises were more likely to be psychologically troubled than those with larger genitalia. The goal of the study was to understand the “real individual-level consequences of living in a penis-centered society.”
