Skip to comments.What Percent of the Population is Gay? More Than You Think. (BS alert)
Posted on 02/14/2014 3:28:21 PM PST by Salman
According to a study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, about 20 percent of the population is attracted to their own gender. Thats nearly double the usual estimates of about 10 percent. The authors explain that their methodology might have something to do with it:
Participants were randomly assigned to either a best practices method that was computer-based and provides privacy and anonymity, or to a veiled elicitation method that further conceals individual responses. Answers in the veiled method preclude inference about any particular individual, but can be used to accurately estimate statistics about the population. Comparing the two methods shows sexuality-related questions receive biased responses even under current best practices, and, for many questions, the bias is substantial. The veiled method increased self-reports of non-heterosexual identity by 65% (p<0.05) and same-sex sexual experiences by 59% (p<0.01). The veiled method also increased the rates of anti-gay sentiment. Respondents were 67% more likely to express disapproval of an openly gay manager at work (p<0.01) and 71% more likely to say it is okay to discriminate against lesbian, gay, or bisexual individuals (p<0.01).

Now it's 20% ??????
Are we headed for a 20% quota?
Would gay-sympathizing straight people claim they are gay in such a survey to help gay rights?
kinsey the pedophile...would have...tripled the suspected number...at the very least
these 10 or 20 percenters are REALLY pushing the envelope.
Kinsey’s report was quite some time ago, in a time when it was less acceptable. Even ten years is a long time in the development of a culture, much less a subculture.
It is not even 10%. It is around 2-3%. This is TOTAL BS!
If an alien landed and watch US television, he would infer that the US population is 30% black, 30% Hispanic, and 20% gay.
No, that's nearly 10 TIMES the ACTUAL estimates of at most, 2 percent.
Telling a lie often doesn't make it any truer.
Gotta justify that 20% of gay TV characters thing, doncha know.
To this day, is there any proof Jason Collins is gay? His career was going down the drain, and I am sure that advisers told him he was almost guaranteed to get signed is he was the first gay player. I know most Freepers would not claim to be gay for millions of dollars, but don't you think there are lots of people out there who would claim to be gay for that much money?
The “gayest” city is Washington DC with 10% numbers. Newsrooms seem to have even higher numbers than that pushing homosexualist propaganda as “news”.
With all the poofs on tv and in politics, you’d think it was more like 80%.
The question is can proof be provided?
I think you hit on a truth.
we made the mistake of visiting the Smithsonisn which is now run by the radical left .
My wife walked and saw some preachy left wing exhibit in the lobby and yelled we are leaving and bolted before we paid a dime.
My sister and family paid and walked out 15 minutes later and wish they could get there money back.
Its lost to the left folks.
(Do I really need the sarc tags?)
It’s still the tyranny of the minority.
Who in the frack cares!
If you want to see a poll that says 99.9 % of the population is gay you take it in San Francisco...
We need fags.
Have you seen the Olympic uniforms?
Do you suppose that any normal people could have designed those?
No, not hardly.
Ergo, to compete in the Olympics we need fags.
This may sound petty but why the hell was the National Bureau of Economic Research doing a study of sexual deviancy?
