The average heterosexual has 8 partners in a lifetime

I'm 7 behind average. Oh, well. One is all I can handle, anyway.

but we have to embrace this lifestyle as just an everyday thing. whats the big deal with mostly having sex when drunk, high on drugs or in an orgy setting. sounds perfectly normal to me. wait, i will go ask a local muslim cleric for his views, since american moral arbiters for the most part seem bought off.

Some of the stats are a bit old...Bell & Weinberg, for example. Too bad new ones aren't available.

Its male homosexuals who tend to promiscuity. That's relatively rare among female homosexuals. That being said, ts possible for one man to be faithful to a male partner all his life. But its more a matter of values than behavior and the gay scene doesn't exactly foster a committed lifestyle. Despite all the recent hoopla, you don't see many gay male couples entering into formal marriages.

A number of them are also patently ridiculous, like this glaring example:

Judge John Martaugh, chief magistrate of the New York City Criminal Court has said, "Homosexuals account for half the murders in large cities"

That is not a statistic, BTW. That is merely the opinion of an idiot.

One of the great lies in our society is that someone has to "come out of the closet to be a homosexual." They can do homosexual acts by the thousands, including against children, and they are not a homosexual unless they say that they are one.

You are what you do. If you practice homosexuality (have sex with someone of your same sex) then you are a homosexual. If you do that at all you are participating in homosexuality. It is not what you say, think, or feel, that makes you homosexual, it is not just an orientation, it is what you do.

Im sure it includes what you say, do, or orient yourself towards, but the strict reality is if you do homosexual you are homosexual.

One would think that the gay lifestyle would render homosexual politicians very vulnerable to being blackmailed. Not for being gay (which the public would likely regard as no big deal) but for engaging in all sorts of unsavory activities while too drunk/stoned to realize they were being recorded

When I first saw this article, I wanted to copy it for the purpose of having it printed someday in the local paper. But when I looked at every statistic, I too, thought someof them were at least a stretch.

I remember what happened to the book Unlimited Access by Gary ??, the FBI agent who worked in the Clinton White House. The morning talk shows, including C-SPAN, made it a point to focus on just one point, the only point that could be disputed in the entire book (had to do with Bill sneaking out to hotels at night for a little of the horizontal mambo). When that one point could not be proven, the entire book was written off and relegated to relatively obscure world of conservative talk.

If these facts, about homosexuality could be cleaned-up, they might be very useful.

The promiscuity among females is way past norm also. And even the homo-marriage is not the same as the hetro-marriage. The homo-marriage is done mostly with no commitment to be mono-marriage like the hetro-marriage is. More than one sex partner is the norm in the homo-marriage, in the hetro-marriage more than one will probably bring the marriage down to ruin.

There is no such thing as normalcy in the homosexual community. They govern their lives by their sexuality, and nothing is too much for them. They are people who yield to any and all things that come into their minds and hearts to do.

One great book that gives a scholastic look at homosexuality under the Nazi regime is "THE PINK SWASTIKA" which is a must read for anyone dealing combating this lifestyle.

Whatever. Around half the murders in New York City are drug-trade related, most of the rest (around a third of the total) are women killed by men in domestic disputes. About 15% are killed by strangers. 4% of all murders are of men killed by an "intimate partner" - that presumably includes whether by a female or male partner. Anyone who would say that homosexuals account for over half of urban homicides is an idiot.

Homosexuals aren't discriminated against in employment, so why should they be a protected class? * The average yearly income of a homosexual is $55,430.00 (most of which is disposable because no children to take care of!). The average of the general population is $32,144.00. The average of blacks is $12,166.00 (24) * 59.6% of homosexuals are college graduates. 18.0% of the general population are college graduates (24). Too bad they aren't smart enough to listen to God. "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:22) * 49.0% of homosexuals hold professional/managerial positions. 15.9% of the general population hold such positions (24). Where's the job discrimination?

They are smarter than the average joe. Intelligence and homoeroticism are correlated. Therefore, to protect the moral fiber of society, we should insist on making people less intelligent. No guarantee at the level of individual decisions, but statistically speaking we would reduce the rate of homosexual thoughts and acts. Of course, we would have to do with fewer Wittgensteins, Turings, Nashes, Whitmans, de Vincis, etc., etc. (isn't this boring?), but think of the aesthetic gains!

Thoughtless posts like yours by contrast make Sinkspur’s knee-jerk Republicanism a welcome and refreshing relief.

* Homosexuals account for a disproportionate number of hepatitis cases: 70-80% in San Francisco, 29% in Denver, 66% in New York City, 56% in Toronto, 42% in Montreal, and 26% in Melbourne (8)
* 37% of homosexuals engage in sadomasochism, which accounts for many accidental deaths. In San Francisco, classes were held to teach homosexuals how to not kill their partners during sadomasochism (8)
* 41% of homosexuals say they have had sex with strangers in public restrooms, 60% say they have had sex with strangers in bathhouses, and 64% of these encounters have involved the use of illegal drugs (8)
* Depending on the city, 39-59% of homosexuals are infected with intestinal parasites like worms, flukes and amoebae, which is common in filthy third world countries (8)
* The median age of death of homosexuals is 42 (only 9% live past age 65). This drops to 39 if the cause of death is AIDS. The median age of death of a married heterosexual man is 75 (8)
* The median age of death of lesbians is 45 (only 24% live past age 65). The median age of death of a married heterosexual woman is 79 (8)
* Homosexuals are 100 times more likely to be murdered (usually by another homosexual) than the average person, 25 times more likely to commit suicide, and 19 times more likely to die in a traffic accident (8)
* 21% of lesbians die of murder, suicide or traffic accident, which is at a rate of 534 times higher than the number of white heterosexual females aged 25-44 who die of these things(8)
* 50% of the calls to a hotline to report "queer bashing" involved domestic violence (i.e., homosexuals beating up other homosexuals) (18)
* About 50% of the women on death row are lesbians (12).

well, according to the fbi stats, one of the key indicators of a serial killer is homosexuality or issues related to it. one of their chief guys wrote a book about it a few years back, its probably now banned as being hate speech. there were some ten major indicators they look for and if i recall correctly, the misundstood one had to have at least six of these to be a serial killer.

good comeback. in all reality, i think its safe to say that drugs do acct or are involved in most of the murders in this country, fair? article makes it obvious that gays are into drugs much more than others. argument with that, read the article. i was using serial killers as an example of a worldview that could possibly have some bearing on gay behaviors. if you come back and say that alot of murders are husbands killing wives, that too is fair, but you have to acknoweldge the sexual angle in that too.

Well then, let's abort everybody.

Although I don't know if you are talking to me or exton1.

Anyway, luckily most of us do not have a clue about what we are talking about. So this thread is just an exercise in entropy.

I think I'll leave now and go to my physical therapy. My therapist, by the way, is way hot. I'll accept the responsibility to replace one of the promiscuous homos we've aborted. Might have some fun too. Who knows?

And FYI: Wittgenstein, Turing, and Nash were not artists.

If you want a serious discussion - "in all reality" - then it is safe to say that most statistics such as the above are contrived. Here's how:

It's difficult to get a precise measure of the percentage of "homosexuals"; this is because definitions vary (is it based on activity? is it based on self-description? etc) and because self-reporting on surveys is unreliable. Therefore, various credible surveys have produced figures ranging from 2%- to 6%+.

Now, say you survey 100 Hepatitis B patients and you come up with 4 that report themselves as homosexual. OK, then you want to figure out how this compares to the general population. How do you do that? Do you take the study that says 2% of the general population is homosexual, or the study that says 4%, or the study that says 6%?

In the first case, you come up with homosexuals are 100% more likely to contract Hep B. In the second, homosexuals are equally likely to contract Hep B as anyone. And, in the third, homosexuals are 33% less likely to contract Hep B.

And so it goes. Much of this is dubious propaganda. If it makes you happy though, run with it. No biggie to me either way!

Newer ones are available which is what makes this repeat post bogus. Here's something much newer on one topic:


The report offers new information about homosexuality in America... over their lifetimes, 6 percent of men and 11 percent of women reported having such experiences. About 1 percent of men and 3 percent of women said they had had both male and female sexual partners within 12 months...

Nearly 6 percent of all men between 15 and 44 reported having oral sex with another man at some time in their lives, and nearly 4 percent reported having anal sex with another man.


The data come from the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, a survey of 12,571 men and women aged 15 to 44... NY Times Article, SEPT 17, 2005
