UW-Madison Lab Uses Scientifically Proven Method for Overcoming Unconscious Bias


The New York Times, Science Section – Why Stanford Researchers Tried to Create a ‘Gaydar’ Machine. This journalist interviewed me extensively to point out the problems in recent, widely-publicized paper that purported to show that artificial intelligence algorithms can identify who is gay or straight. I think the journalist did a great job summarizing things!


AKSARBENT – Junk science in Stanford’s artificial intelligence gayface study that Newsweek, The Guardian, The Economist and Big Gay missed A somewhat irreverent blog post that dissects the recent “AI gaydar” study, by (correctly) applying our work demonstrating the fundamental flaws in gaydar accuracy research to this new study.


A lot of my work was featured on this episode of Invisibilia on NPR, including interviews with me and Trish Devine. Our part starts around the 35-minute mark.


An article in Science Magazine interviewed me, discussing my work with Patrick Forscher, Trish Devine, and Markus Brauer experimentally testing for race and gender biases in the NIH grant review process: Can fake names tease out NIH reviewer bias?

Featured in this week’s issue of Inside UW-Madison

Following the media attention, our wonderful editor, Dr. Cynthia Graham, asked our publisher if they would make the article free open access, and they agreed! You can now get the article freely from the publisher’s website, here: Inferences About Sexual Orientation: The Roles of Stereotypes, Faces, and The Gaydar Myth
Third highest trending story on Facebook, with 9.1K people discussing it:
HuffPost Live – QueerView – ‘Gaydar’ Is Just Camouflaged Stereotyping, New Study Finds – Live video interview.
Yahoo! Health – ‘Gaydar’ May Not Actually Be a Thing – Very happy with how this one turned out!
Attn: – Is Gaydar Real? – I like the journalist’s use of our infographic!
Newser – ‘Gaydar’ Isn’t Real, but It Is Dangerous: The Myth of Gaydar Legitimizes Stereotypes, According to New Study – I don’t like how some sites have amped up the headlines to start saying gaydar is “dangerous” — the findings and claims in the paper are, of course, much more tame than that.
Queerty – Gaydar Doesn’t Exist, According To New Study We Refuse To Believe – I adopt a general policy of not getting into internet flame wars (though of course I engage with anyone who wants to engage in thoughtful discussion), but I must say, Queerty certainly misunderstands the claims of the work, and clearly didn’t read it. And they certainly never contacted me to ask about it. I do appreciate how they compare gaydar to the Force (you know, Star Wars magic), and the irony that they say I just can’t understand, because I’m not gay. Any ladies out there want to date a guy who has newly been declared straight by Queerty’s use of The Force? #confirmationbias #magicisntreal #feelingsareneithersciencenorjournalism #I’mrathergaythankyouverymuch
Towleroad – In Defense Of Gaydar – More dismissive blogging that didn’t read the paper or talk to me. But, a little more thoughtful than some, at least.
NewNowNext – Gaydar Is Not Real, Study Claims – Yeesh!  This one absolutely butchered the coverage and messes up the facts of the studies and what I’ve said. 🙁
You Beauty – Study: Gaydar Isn’t a Thing. Researchers are calling it “the gaydar myth.” – This one also messes it up a bit.
KABC Los Angeles – Radio Interview
The Washington Post – Study: Your ‘gaydar’ is terrible – Very nice coverage; the author clearly read the full paper, with all its caveats and qualifications!
Late Night with Seth Myers – Seth Myers used the work to make a joke! I love it! It’s at about 3:18 into the video.
The Drum – Put your gaydar down and stop trying to work out people’s sexuality – I really appreciate this author’s personal touch to the piece!
Wisconsin State Journal & – UW-Madison study connects ‘gaydar’ to stereotyping

The Social – Why ‘gaydar’ could be a myth – A nice discussion! I especially like the points made by the last two speakers.
