Posted on 07/22/2014 4:41:56 AM PDT by right-wing agnostic
I have a sensitive, inconvenient, and undoubtedly politically incorrect question: Why arent there more gay people?
I ask because theres something confusing about our culture war. Given the prominence of the issue, you would expect homosexuality to be rampant in America. When asked to estimate how many gay people there are, most people guess that its on the order of 20% to 25% of the population. But yet another study has been released by the CDC giving a more scientific estimate, and it finds that almost 97 percent of Americans describe themselves as straight the actual number who describes themselves as gay, lesbian, or bisexual is 2.3%. So the publics perception is off by a whole order of magnitude.
Its almost as if someone has been conspiring to elevate this issue way beyond its actual cultural significance. That is precisely what we find, and both sides are to blame.
For the moderate left, gay rights have to be magnified as a social issue because they want to keep alive the legacy of the civil rights movement. They know how much they gained by remaking the Democratic Party, the home of the old Dixiecrats, into the party that claims exclusive credit for the entire civil right movementwhile smearing Republicans as racists. Their exaggeration of the culture war over homosexuality is partly an attempt find a new civil rights movement to fight over so they can maintain a manufactured moral high ground.

Because the lifestyle suck and is a pain the ass?
Just a guess...
if you were an alien race reading the earth’s media broadcasts to learn about us you’d come to the conclusion that earth was ruled by a magnificent collection of sexy black folks and magical, loving gays.
So....the Left needs faggies in order to continue their culture war.
Order Captain Obvious to stop the presses!!
“Its almost as if someone has been conspiring to elevate this issue way beyond its actual cultural significance”
well that’s it exactly. the war is really against the white Christian male, and support for gays is just one more column that is enlisted to fight.
if you look at everything that is being pushed in our society in the prism of that war, it all starts to make sense.

One look at moochele and they would discard the “sexy” part.
And the number of transgenders is probably in the tens of thousands. But that won’t stop the rest of society from being totally reshaped to accommodate them.
Left solely to their own devices, their replenishment would require collaboration between Lesbians and Homos, i.e., have cross-sex resulting in children. That, being a confirmation of the natural order of things (e.g., it takes two different sexes to make a baby) is hypocritical in and of itself.
It is why they spend so much time and energy to change opinions, and more importantly, acceptance, so that they can infiltrate amongst our young and pervert them. As with any perversion, it ALWAYS escalates. Left unchecked, they will replenish themselves.
Because the “gay revolution” has nothing to do about gay people.
It’s about destroying Judo-Christianity.
I’m pretty sure they’re fine with the judo
for the mentally stunted that were to stoned during high school biology...
homosexuality is not genetic. it cannot be. if it were, it would have long since died out as a trait since it cannot, by definition, be passed on.
homosexuality is, by definition, a behavioral issue.
about 2% of this country are radical, self loathing, deviants who, thankfully, have a life expectancy of only 42 years.
Jefferson was going easy on them. Castration was suggested as an alternative to sentencing them to death.
Either way - I agree. Clearly homosexual behavior (and any other form of abnormal, non-procreative sex) breeds disease. Removing the urge to perform such unnatural activities is an act of compassion. Love thy enemy. Castration would help protect the individual and society as a whole.
It is unfortunate that there isn’t such an easy solution to help the female sodomites.
Because humans (like all animals) have a genetic drive to reproduce. you can only do that with the opposite gender. Even if a person doesn’t want to have kids, the base desire still draws us to at least want to be involved with the opposite gender in some way.
Homosexuality had always been a minuscule number of people that kept their activities off and out of sight. And for the most part, that worked out well enough. They knew what they were doing was really off the reservation, and they didnt make some effort to force people to accept it.
Gay activists today know that most people on their own would never want to be gay, that is why they are making this full-court press in movies, on tv, in books, and by criminalizing criticism of homosexuality to almost make it “cool” and more preferable to being normal. Look how edgy and alternative you will be! You can also claim instant victim status. Something really desirable to suburban white kids that desperately want to be in with other victim classes. They are using techniques used by pedophiles to coax kids into sexual situations by making it seem more normal, to make homosexuality to be the new cool subversion. The awesome way to stick it to your parents, stand out, and be popular.
That is the only way homosexuals can “reproduce” is through mental manipulation.
Being gay used to hold a certain secretive esoteric nature to it. Now that it is public, it’s no longer “different” or “unique”. The titillation factor is gone.
It will be interesting to see if this is an accurate prediction. If homosexuality is not a genetic fluke, but is influenced by environment, then it is entirely possible for the percentage of practitioners to increase.
Perhaps the number of people who say they are "gay" will remain constant, but the percentage who sometimes have anal sex with another guy will increase.
Saw a very illuminating post elsewhere recently: homosexuality is nature’s way of marking one for elimination from the gene pool.
When you look at it from a numbers standpoint, especially over the long-term, it’s a solid theory.
What strikes me is how invariant the number of homosexuals is. Over the past three or four decades, public awareness and acceptance of homosexuality has grown by leaps and bounds, yet none of this seems to have made any converts.
One would think so many more would be coming out of the closet but that's just not happening.
This is also a good point:
Lets put it this way: which is a more important issue, a couple of hundred thousand gay marriages or the millions of heterosexual couples who, for larger social reasons, are not getting married and not forming stable relationships, with all of the negative consequences for their own lives and the lives of their children?
So much more damage has been done to our society through no-fault divorce than could be done with a couple of guys pretending they are "married". If I could make marriage important again, culturally, in this country, I would. Letting some gays play house would act contrary to that but it would not destroy that important societal pillar by itself.
I watched a documentary (Though, I can’t recall the title) on a man who was a homosexual pedophile and decided to get castrated. He claimed to be much happier with his life after the castration.
"Moderate left" is an oxymoron - doesn't exist.
Dead Enders reach the Dead End. Recruitment via pedophelia keeps the perversion alive to a fringe level.
This country certainly is.
I agree. Homosexual "marriage" is sterile, rarely exclusive, and usually of short duration. These are pathologies of legitimate marriage, not beneficial elements.
As Mrs. Don-o says, heterosexuals invented gay marriage. Homosexuals' participation is a late, but surely reasonable, development.
A man’s rear end cannot compare with what a woman has.
Shouldn’t the title be “Thank Goodness there aren’t more “gay” people”?
It's a big step, not taken lightly, and probably involves some bridge-burning.
Reproduction, or lack thereof could be an issue.
To answer the headline; it is because homosexuality is not one of the more common mental illnesses.
The data suggests that the number of people experimenting with homosexuality (bisexuals) has exploded 300%... but still is a small number (1.1% among young adults compared to .3% among middle-aged adults.) Either that, or most bisexuals go straight.
One thing I find particularly disturbing is the current effort to push the idea that gays are better at raising children than heterosexuals. I find that so strange that I cannot even think of a good comparison to any other strange idea. Certainly no homosexual couple, either male or female, can produce a child on their own so what on Earth would make anyone fantasize that they could do a better job of raising a child? I have even heard a married woman talk to a gay man about the idea that a gay man would make a great nanny. Sick, sick, sick. Anyone who harbors such notions should search on the name of Jesse Dirkhising but if you don’t already know the story be forewarned that you may need to have a large bucket handy when you do read it and you may suffer psychological damage. I am a man of mature years who has been through a considerable amount of pain in the past and survived but when first exposed to the story I literally wanted to cry like a baby.
Why Aren’t There More Gay People?
There aren’t any. HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.
Homos are simply a weapon for the anti-Christian left.
My son asked me why are there no more Unicorns? I said because they were gay.....
The number of people that have had a homosexual encounter is closer to 30%. Most don’t stick with it, but that is the number that is rising and that is a major public health concern. The study that showed 2% was a self-identification study, not a behavior study.
Unicorns & rainbows go so well together!
LOL, can’t top that....won’t even try.
More people would be happy and carefree if they weren’t worried about their children eventually becoming the love objects of homos.
The study you’re thinking of was conducted by a self-confessed homosexual who used faulty methods to obtain his desired result.
30% have experimented with it? Wow.
Could that be because our culture celebrates homosexuality so much, that people want to try it?
What do you describe as a “homosexual encounter”?
The guy at the coffee shop served me coffee.
if you were an alien race reading the earths media broadcasts to learn about us youd come to the conclusion that earth was ruled by a magnificent collection of sexy black folks and magical, loving gays.
...don’t forget the snarky, domineering young females and their contempt for the 100% balding, overweight, and utterly helpless male counterparts, both husband and father...
Same reason there ain’t too many albino alligators? Mother Nature cures her own errors.
The natural order prefers heterosexuality. That is why heterosexuality is the norm in the Animal Kingdom which would otherwise face extinction.
Reproduction, or lack thereof could be an issue.
...as it is quite likely that many homosexuals are bi-sexual as well, reproduction, in the natural way, poses no issue for them...and if faced with extermination, any distaste for heterosex will be quickly swept aside, and the act consummated...
...a more useful study would be to determine the population of bisexual individuals, as these people would be more likely to have some lasting influence on the culture going forward, that was unavailable to them in times past...
Actually I was already aware of that but my concern is that some people are silly enough to believe that garbage, even some heterosexuals are idiot enough to swallow it (the story, that is).
