Gay Leaders Upset by Low CDC Population Numbers: ‘Political Influence Matters’

August 3, 2014

Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population.  That would mean the total number of gays in American is roughly 3.8 million, roughly 1.5 million less than the total number of American Methodists.  Scout, who goes by one name, a spokesman for CenterLink’s Network of LGBT Health Equity, told the Washington Post, “The truth is, numbers matter, and political influence matters.”  Most Americans believe the population of gays is exponentially larger.

    They don’t like the result, implying the poll is rigged against them. No more so than their talking points are for them. No reason to get their sequined thongs in a twist.

    Nothing to see here folks, move along.

    We want more, everybody should be gay, I’m happy, but not gay does that count?
    Why are they not happy with the results, all polls are rigged with questions that obtain desired results, silly folks in the gay community should be smart enough to know that.

    Ask, ‘Is it true”? If it is, get used to it. Accept it. Move on.
