The more rigorous studies have shown different results within a range of 0.6 to 5.4 percent. These studies include Bell-Weinberg, 1970 (~2 percent); Billy-Battelle, 1993 (1.1 percent); Cameron-Ross, 1975-78 (~3 percent); Catania-NABS, 1992 (2 percent); FRI, 1983 (5.4 percent); MacDonald, 1988 (2 percent); NCHS, 1988-91 (3.5 percent); Schmidt, 1987 (0.6 percent); and Trocki, 1988-89 (3 percent).
Gates' best estimate, derived from five studies that have asked subjects about their sexual orientation, is that the nation has about 4 million adults who identify as being gay or lesbian, representing 1.7 percent of the 18-and-over population.
Gates found, for example, that another 1.8 percent of the adult population, or a little more than 4 million Americans, identifies as bisexual, according to his research brief published Thursday by the Williams Institute.

"Boys is claiming" "hetros". Learn English before you seem even more unintelligent than you really are. Gay people are not trying to "take over the world". Maybe there is no scientific proof that homosexual people are born that way yet, but any biggot who makes an article like this should die. Smh.

Remind me, how exactly do two dudes/gals having gay sex pose a threat to you? Will they kidnap you and force you to not only watch but partake? Will they take over the world and force everybody to be gay?
