Paul Rudnick Stretches the Kinsey Scale

Paul Rudnick Stretches the Kinsey Scale


Paul Rudnick, the playwright and screenwriter, had some fun with Alfred Kinsey's scale of hetero- and homosexuality -- instead of ranking people from 0 to 6 on their attraction or revulsion to the opposite sex, Rudnick thinks there should be 20 degrees of gayness.

Writing in The New Yorker, Rudnick says an exclusively straight person should be rated a 0 and described as thus: "So heterosexual that you think all other heterosexuals should be shot, because they seem a little gay." See the gay writer's full list here.
