Skip to comments.How Many Americans Are Lesbian, Gay or Bisexual? (Answer: Not that many)
Posted on 07/22/2014 12:42:47 PM PDT by jalisco555
As it has for decades, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week released its annual National Health Interview Survey on the health of Americans. But this year, there was a difference: For the first time, the respondents were asked about their sexual orientation.
Of 34,557 adults ages 18 and older, the survey reported, 1.6 percent said they were gay or lesbian. Some critics say the numbers are low, but they fall in the range of other surveys. In the new survey, however, only 0.7 percent of respondents described themselves as bisexual; other studies have reported higher numbers.

I think it’s 12 % that are black, but not according to commercials.
Bet a dollar to a donut that 1.3 percent of those only THINK they are gay and/or lesbian because it's "the next big thing" right now and they love the celebrity status it brings. Everybody wants to be a "victim" these days.

Then why the hell are they do dammed effective in causing so many of us so much damn grief!
Just like other minorities.... a fraction of the population and a majority of the crime, trouble and expense.
The world is log normal and follows the 80/20 rule.
The lefties don’t care about gay people - they care about destroying Christianity.
I’m a lesbian trapped in a man’s body. Does that count?
TV shows and movies have them totally over-represented
A higher percentage of Americans are felons than are homosexual.
Then why do the rest of us (98.4% normal ones), have to Kowtow to them on everything?
This is ridiculous. What makes anyone believe that someone who IS gay or lesbian would answer truthfully?
Still, I suspect compared to the overall population, the numbers are miniscule. They just congregate in certain areas where a) they can get media access and/or b) they happen to find others like them. (NYC, SF, Provincetown)
They congregate in jobs where they recruit children
The only reason the Times is reporting this is try to convince more people to go queer.
They’re appalled that people aren’t jumping in, so they’re trying to “stop the hate”.
Not admitting that it’s a tiny minority of psychologically damaged people.
It probably is, at the New York Times.
“In the Gallup data Ive worked with, if youre under 30, 6 percent identify as L.G.B.T. If youre older, its closer to 3 percent. But its not that proportionally there are more L.G.B.T. people among the young, but that young people are more likely to disclose.”
It's also well-known, but not disclosed here, that many young women self-identify as a lesbian or bisexual at some time between ages 18 and 30 but then eventually marry and have children with a male spouse.
And they are the ones that are heavily represented with HIV/AIDs.
> They congregate in jobs where they recruit children
Scout leaders particularly...
Every sit-com and drama on TV now has at least one gay character.
If space aliens were to suddenly pick up our TV signals they’d think we’re all gay.................
And they have control of the media, so they can create the illusion that there are a lot more of them than there really are.
You gotta break the numbers down more. The infiltration during the last four decades of govt. jobs all the way to the WH, the entertainment industry and Mass Media by homosexuals (both female and male) is where the disinformation comes from regarding a much larger % being homosexual. Couple that with sob stories, many of which were made up to fit the Queer Agenda, have pushed it through to where we are now - Thank you, Ellen, for being the spokesqueer for America and all who have followed you into nearly every show we see on tv today. Foolish non-gay people enable what is going on in classrooms, churches, workplace, and just about anywhere people gather. STOP THE MADNESS!!!
I think popular culture has been brainwashed that “we are born this way.” When it seems that young boys were molested and then changed, and young women, are more fluid, and were just experimenting, as the popular saying goes, “I tried it in college.”
“Not that many”: Thank Goodness.
School teachers, scout leaders, church youth group leaders, summer camp counselors... and so on.... you will find child predators of all types
Working as an actor some 30 years ago in a touring theater company, the cast went out for a few cocktails.
Sitting at the bar, the producer who was gay, put his hand on my thigh.
This being my first lead role I didn't want to insult him. Especially because he signed the paychecks.
I gingerely lifted his hand off my leg and told him I was a flaming heterosexual.
Later that year, when the run was over, I nailed his younger sister. In his house!
Apoplexy doesn't come close to what happened to him!
1.55% of them work in the media...
oh, I meant 12% of the country, gay or straight. The film industry unfairly represents and hires.
This is why they recruit all the time. This is why they propagandize on TV and in the movies.
They want MORE of them for more political power.
The Chinese are finally figuring out what America’s Leftist radicals have known for a century.
Great point. They use hate speech all the time.
It is the one-percenters.
Is this why Netflix has a Gay BLT section? Just for 1.6%???
Gay BLTs. What a waste.
Pretty much accurate - I have known many women who’ve told me they “used to be lesbians” - they were just young and experimenting with “being progressive” In the end, women want children - homosexuality is abhorrent to nature. Committed gays are dysfunctional and mentally retarded in some pathological way
They're all about gay cowboys eating pudding.
Every vote counts though so that's why the democrats pander to them. In Obama's case - he's queer too so he's not pandering, he's looking out for "his people"
For obvious reasons, Big Lib Media has an agenda in making seem there’s far more homosexuals than there are. For many years ten percent was the number quoted. Just think about it. If it actually were ten percent, wouldn’t average people have known about it?
The fact is, you don't need a study to know that 2-3% is much closer to reality than 10%. Personal experience with people will suffice. I can believe that in a random sample of 100 people, two or three are homosexual or some other sort of sexual deviant. I know that the number isn't going to be ten or more.
except maybe in Hollyweird, San Fran or DC
Gotta pump up those gay numbers so you can justify them ruining America.
Approximately 49% of Americans are afraid to admit they’re gay. <— liberal interpretation, coming up.
As someone pointed out, if it was natural we would have gone extinct long ago.
“Then why the hell are they do dammed effective in causing so many of us so much damn grief!”
Because they are drama queens. That’s one reason you traditionally kept them out of the military.
Mrs WBill has a fair number of gay friends and acquaintences leftover from college. Most of them are older (now...along with the rest of us :-) ) so they're not militant, young, and angry. Their attitude is, roughly, "I'm gay. So what. If you don't like it, that's your problem." Frankly, I get along OK with most of them. We don't have much in common; I don't necessarily approve of their lifestyles, but they're not unpleasant to make small talk with for brief periods I see them at get-togethers.
There's a small subset of this group who I'd call "Flaming Drama Queen Attention Whores". Nothing is too outrageous. They proudly portray every negative gay stereotype that there is. I'm convinced, after hearing about them (and seeing them) for a number of years that their actions are a conscious decision. A flamboyantly gay lifestyle is a way to get more attention, without losing any social status. And - if there was a way to get even *more* attention (without losing any status), they'd drop the whole gay thing and pursue that instead.
I can't stand these few people. Mrs Wbill says that watching them is like watching a train wreck. Honestly, I wish she'd cut them all loose as I like her friends from church a whole lot more. I suppose that she doesn't approve of my old drinking buddies from way back when either....
Just my $0.02. YMMV.
CDC says 2.3%. Prob somewhere in the middle. At any rate, far less than what the gay community says and FAR less then most people think because of there incredibly loud mouths.
And yet we endure a confused character on every single TV show and movie.
Gotta love it, only not.
I want “White Conservative History Month”, a guaranteed token white conservative invited on every show on every network, my own flag (Gadsden comes to mind), special parade privileges, and reparations for having to put up with all the stupid crap we’re being fed these days.
What part of the General Population they are doesn’t matter.
What does matter is that they now make up 50-60%, or more, of today’s US mainstream media, where they now control the organs of propaganda.
