Very cute research. I think the researcher's view is a little rosy; catching the bus shows me that homophobic speech and behaviour is alive and well among young people around here at least. Still, a positive direction.

"Anderson is now moving his research on to cuddling. "Last week, I was talking to my second-year students about two straight men cuddling; they laughed, 'what's the big deal about that'," he says. "I polled them, and found that 14/15 said they had spooned another man, in bed, sleeping all night long. Gone are the days in which men would rather sleep on the floor or head to toe; not only do they share beds and cuddle, but they are not homosexualised for this."" So cute.
