out of curiosity, what % would you put as "plenty"?

2% - about half of gay men? (per available estimates/surveys)
3.5% - a solid majority of gay men?


would that not leave an overwhelming 96-98% of the masculine men as heterosexual?

In all fairness, I think the article was a bit misleading.

Example,

"A Canadian research team reports that men with more masculine facial features tend to be less interested in environmentalism than those who lack such features. Men whose voices are rated as more manly are also less concerned about preserving and protecting the natural world, the team finds."

Just what is exactly "preserving and protecting the natural world"? I would like to know that first.


Does it mean that they are less likely to recycle? =)

I know two kinds of masculine men. One group of men are obsessed with clean energy, clean food, some of them are vegans. Yeah, consider that.
The other group of masculine men are care less, but it doesn't mean they don't care about environment. Just because they have masculine facial feathers, and deep voices, does not mean they are dumb.

they were scored based on responses to a test called 'environmental attitude inventory.' i can't find a free version but here is an example question (#2 of 12).


Quote:
Scale 02.Support for interventionist conservation policies
01. Industry should be required to use recycled materials even when this costs more than making the same products from new raw materials.

02. Governments should control the rate at which raw materials are used to ensure that they last as long as possible.*,y

03. Controls should be placed on industry to protect the environment from pollution, even if it means things will cost more.*

04. People in developed societies are going to have to adopt a more conserving life-style in the future.*

05. The government should give generous financial support to research related to the development of alternative energy sources, such as solar energy.

06. I donít think people in developed societies are going to have to adopt a more conserving life-style in the future. (R)*

07. Industries should be able to use raw materials rather than recycled ones if this leads to lower prices and costs, even if it means the raw materials will eventually be used up. (R)*

08. It is wrong for governments to try and compel business and industry to put conservation before producing goods in the most efficient and cost effective manner. (R)

09. I am completely opposed to measures that would force industry to use recycled materials if this would make products more expensive. (R)

10. I am opposed to governments controlling and regulating the way raw materials are used in order to try and make them last longer. (R)*,y
