A new Gallup survey, touted as the largest of its kind, estimates that 3.4 percent of American adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

The findings, released Thursday, were based on interviews with more than 121,000 people. Gallup said it is the largest study ever aimed at calculating the nation's LGBT population.

The report's lead author, demographer Gary Gates of the UCLA School of Law's Williams Institute, said he hoped the findings would help puncture some stereotypes about gays and lesbians

Like the one in ten myth. So if less than four in a hundred are queer, why is every other character on TV gay? Just askin.

About 1992 while flipping channels I paused for a few minutes to watch a gay pride rally in D.C. to see what they were up to. I distinctly remember a group of “women” walking with signs and chanting “Recruit, Recruit, Recruit!” My first thought was wait a minute, I thought they said they were born that way.

Recruiting? Is that what the pedophiles who infiltrated the Boy Scouts were doing?

Interesting: if these figures are even close, then we have to ask ourselves if there is a link between this and other developmental disorders like autism. What could be causing these astounding increases in mental damage?

the professionals have for years determined through scientific means that in the US there are only two(2)% homosexuals - slightly more for men and slightly less for females. This has been posted on FR in years past. Gallop is off. I don’t have the studies but have read them.

The activists claim to be 10% strong.

They should have asked the P/Ms how many are RATs (99% of them)

elpadre: "professionals have for years determined through scientific means that in the US there are only two(2)% homosexuals...
The activists claim to be 10% strong."

The proper way to look at this is that homosexuality is not as much biological as it is cultural, that it can be taught, and historically -- in some cultures where it was encouraged -- reached virtually 100%.

So this recent Gallup study suggesting 3.4% should be compared to past studies showing 2% overall.
We should note first, that this represents a 70% increase in recent years, and so second, puts the "gay pride" community roughly 20% closer to it's advertised goal of 10% LGBTs.

Less than 4 percent is gay, and 70 percent of those are either in Hollywood or the mainstream media. About one and a half percent of the almost 4 percent are heterosexuals who have been brainwashed into thinking it’s cool to be queer. About 30 percent of the almost 4 percent will end up in straight marriages where they seldom talk about their excursions into queerdom. And then there are twinkies like Obama who will pretend to be straight in public, but are full-throttle faggots when the closet doors shut.

The Standard Distribution (bell shaped) curve can be a very interesting thing at times.

That means that 96.6 percent are hetero. Wow, so why does every series on TV(and most movies)have about 25 percent gay characters?

The study also shows that “LGBT Americans Tend to Have Lower Levels of Education AND Income.”

This explodes the myth put out by the gay community that they generally have better educations and high discretionary incomes.

They come from the ranks of the most vulnerable. The lie is that this is a genetic condition. It is one of sexual trauma and a stifling of sexual maturation. Emotionalism and materialism go along with it. It is a psychological condition and can be treated and cured.

I suspect there is serious falsification in this Gallup poll like all the others. IOW they probably count the prison population, or only count specific areas in order to dilute the normal people. count rapes, illegal acts etcs.
