Study: Nearly half of college-educated gay Americans are in the closet at work

A new study by the Center for Work-Life Policy think tank has found that 48 percent of college-educated lesbian and gay Americans hide their sexual orientation at work. About a third of them are leading "double lives," the report says--staying in the closet at the office while being "out" in their personal lives

How do we get the other half back in the closet? I'm tired of hearing them run their mouths.

I don't think sex is a proper topic in the office, no matter what kind it is.

The worst part about the gay agenda is that is forces the straight population to think about butt holes. I don’t like to think about butt holes.

Right here. Say, did you know I was a rump ranger?

And less than 1% of the population is news why?

Oh that's right. Their agenda. They're hoping that no one realizes that homosexuals are 2% of the population and this article speaks to a tiny minority.

I had a gay co-worker who mentioned (more than once) that he knew that one of the local tv weathermen was gay. Then I thought about it and decided *any* of the local tv weatherman might be gay, some tripped the gaydar a little more than others but there wasn’t one where you could say “naaahh, couldn’t be him!”.

seems to me, they are succeeding quite well, and that is why they continue.
polls show most Americans think gays make up a huge amount more than they actually are.

this article continues it, making people think that even more of the nice quiet people at the office also might be secretly gay.

it’s all lies and propaganda, but it’s working. as long as they control the MSM ala Gramsci, it’s an uphill fight...

The topic shouldn’t come up.

I have a male colleague who is gay. I only found because his “partner” needed my help professionally and he ran the situation by me first. The only other time I’ve ever heard him say anything was at a happy hour well away from work.

If he was asked why he didn’t say anything I could see him coming up with some version of it’s no one’s business and has nothing to do with his job performance.

At work, I keep my penchant to be spanked by fatties of either sex hidden in a very dark closet. (Kidding, but you get my point — no one cares, it’s not their business, keep your bedroom preferences to yourself!)

This is interesting as the left has pushed the pc agenda so far in corporate America that if a man was to express or do something that expresses sexuality in any way the HR Nazis would on him like white on rice.

Anyone else out there had to sit through those friggin training films that portrays the "correct male" to be a neutered drone?

Personally it’s better if a person does not be overtly homosexual at the office. As a matter of fact, I’m also a bit tired of the heterosexuals who are so in-your-face about their sexuality. Some subjects are really private, and should remain so.

It’s tiring to be constantly bombarded with information about people’s sex lives. Why should any one else care anyway?????

Evidently not. The elites decided that gays were the New Blacks, and that's that. Even when the Old Blacks (at least the preachers) say they've had enough, their views are ignored or written off.

But most don’t think about that. I had a gal at work who said she had no problem with “Gays”. At which I quickly said ..”Then you don’t have a problem knowing a man puts his frontage in someones butt”.

Her arms flung out with a cry of Ewwwww-wwww! So it rather put things in the right perspective as far as I’m concerned. She didn’t take it further either...had she done so I would have asked her why she chose to become a supporter of sodomites.

Call it what it is and people have a very different reaction. Same with killing unborn children.

Well maybe if the gals would not present their full clevages into every mans face at work they wouldn't be thinking about it so much either! I'm a woman and I get tired of seeing womans boobs...especially those who are past forty who have sundamaged, sunspotted, and wrinkled cleavages...yulk! What makes them think that's attractive I'll never understand. Then there are those who bend and there muffins hang over their butt for the world to see....and my work place has a dress code and STILL they flaunt their fat and but cracks!

Precious memories: my female coworker and I drove to a contractor’s to pick up some repaired equipment. I called the gal behind the counter “beautiful Jenna” because she really was and wanted all and sundry to know it, too. Juggling both job orders and repaired items, Jenna bent, knelt, and pirouetted for me, leaving no doubts about her attributes including the tat on the small of her back (though there’s something I do like about freckled boobs!).

Meanwhile my coworker was seething. She stormed out of the shop and when I climbed behind the wheel of the minivan she sat silently for a moment and then shouted, “TRAMP!!”

I look back now from the vantage of retirement. Oh, youth!

;^)

Hmm ~ funny, everybody where I worked knew who all the homosexuals were ~ including the "closeted" ones. They just imagine folks don't know.

For the most part you get into one of these gray federal agency office situation type working environments there's really no time for that sort of thing. The most troublesome employees turn out to be those who go to the closest tavern at 11 AM and don't come back.

Your response supports my position. Flagrant flaunting of one’s physical “attributes” is also disgusting at work. It’s just more of the “sex is the only game in town” attitude.

Believe me, there are lots of other things to be thinking about, and when one is on the job, sex is not one of them.

It’s not just gray, it’s been “silvered” or streaked with “silver”. Some of these guys go so far as to have their beards electrically removed ~ which is weird and can give you cancer. Not sure having face cancer advances their dating potential.

Please stay there and redecorate! Closets aren't all that awful but could use your help - take the "other half" with you to help, please.

Woman do more harm than good by exposing themselves in the work place...and it’s puposeful. Embarasses me and I’m a woman. One young gal’s butt crack was so obvious I asked went up behind her and said your butts hanging out. She said, “I know, I could feel the draft”. So what does that say? They simply don’t care how flaunting their body parts affects others who are not comfortable with it.

I mentioned this at a company meeting...that I don’t appreciate it when I’m closing a sale and the customer gets distracted...and it’s not just the men, woman customers are offended and feel uncomfortable.

Yup. This is simply an “agenda” piece. It’s talking about college educated homosexuals. That would probably be less than 1% of the population. Actually the “48%” may even be a number that was pulled out of thin air. The agenda is simply to make it look like the poor homosexuals, even the smart ones, have to hide.

I’ve always taken that behavior (what they call closeting) to be an attempt by homosexuals to keep OTHER homosexuals from bothering them at work.

How many of our non-gay co-workers discuss their sex lives at work? Shall we consider their non-discussion as meaning they are "closeted" heteros? It should not be relevant to work.

There can be “shunning” if a homosexual is discovered. It does change how people look at them as people. Not always but it happens.
