I don't know if I could roll with these stats. There are a lot more men in this sample than women. If you sampled an equal number of men/women of different types of sexual preference you might get something. Also it seemed that the test is designed around a perceived cultural identity, and assumes a self perception of gender traits so I don't know how a straight (no pun intended) statistical analysis is applicable...
Thanks though for doing the math, It was interesting.
Plus I have to wonder about the personality trait 'introspection' maybe being introspective is favored by one or another gender leaning, so that one gender would be more apt to take the test...
