I'm not sure if I follow you logic.

Are you implying that to associate being gay with being white, better educated and wealthier is acceptable (as the media tends to do), but to report the results of a huge survey of 121,000 people which shows being gay is more associated with being Democrat, black, less well educated and less well off is an attack on "groups and "minorities".


Don't be so naive. Sexual orientation, "race," class and political affiliation are all important aspects of self identification. Each comes with a complex of feelings of inferiority, superiority, persecution and "otherness." There are already some who are trying to steer this thread towards their own agendas. Some will imply that this survey "proves" that "non-whites" are "morally inferior" to "whites." Others will claim that it is proof of "WASP hypocrisy." The variations are endless.

Im pretty sure the OP didn't perform this poll, so why attack him/her?

Though I do understand your frustration as the whole LGBT debate is getting a bit old and seems to be inciting hatred on both sides of the argument.

Personally I just see it as a way for TPTB to keep us squabiling among ourselves about something that has little importance. Unless you subscribe to the idea that there is some conspiracy by satanists or something to turn the population LGBT, it should be of little practical significance.

How about we all let bygones be bygones and move on to more pressing matters like the whole corrupt world power structure thing.

I see this as being much like the thing you point to when your like: "hey look at that!" ( *Moves piece on chessboard

Edit: Why does ATS keep going to a white '404 screen all of the sudden? I always get a little suspicious when things like that happen, Eh..... Probably nothing.

Your prejudice made that up.How would you know if they were 'closeted'?


How would you know if they are not?
Maybe because in the survey they have identified themselves as gay?


But if they didn't, they would be closeted.

Or it could be that the higher income people are more likely to refrain from admitting they are LGBT because they don't want to lose there standing.

That and Republicans seem to be more wealthy, and I dont really think I need to say why Republicans are much less likely to be LGBT.


I suspect that wealthy, successful people being presumably less likely to admit to being gay is quite possibly a significant factor.

Also, where was this study done? All around the world, or just in the USA. There are just too many factors that have to be taken into account to consider these numbers accurate.


It was carried out in the USA and involved 121,000 people being questioned.

Good to see the Truth is finally coming out.
This is also supported by another rarely known fact. The cause for the overpopulation issue in Africa.

Undereducated, poor blacks tend to be gay to higher percentage and because gays don't reproduce, africans trying to get as much kids as possible, hoping that one them will eventually turn out to be straight and secure continuation of the family.
This is also supported by the fact that overpopulation is mostly an issue in countries with non-white ethnicities.

Ya, but I think the poster is trying to say that if the poll is anonymous, then they have no reason to lie even if they are closeted. However, that doesnt mean many arent lying to themselves, or suppressing there feelings.

I wonder what percentage identify as asexual?

Wealth and education have nothing to do with homosexuality. You have to be careful with statistics. It's showing you something, just not what you thought.

This is the reason, less whites support gay marriage then blacks

Strong Support for Gay Marriage Now Exceeds Strong Opposition




Overall, 53 percent of Americans say gay marriage should be legal, steady the past year but up from 36 percent in just 2006. Thirty-nine percent “strongly” support it, while 32 percent are strongly opposed – the first time strong sentiment has tilted positive. Six years ago, by contrast, strong views on the issue were negative by a broad 27-point margin.

Notably among groups, 59 percent of African-Americans in this survey express support for gay marriage – up from 41 percent in combined ABC/Post polls this spring and last summer. Likewise, 65 percent support Obama’s new position on the issue. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People announced its support for gay marriage last weekend.

Fewer whites, 46 percent, approve of Obama’s announcement, and 50 percent support gay marriage – numerically (albeit not statistically significantly) the fewest since 2010.

You could well be correct. The poll however does suggest that education, wealth and race are associated with identifying yourself with being homosexual.

Its happening to me on other pages now. Very odd. Only on ATS though. Hmmmmm........

Edit: Was anybody else getting a plain white 404 screen on ATS? This is a conspiracy site after all.

Yes, but a well educated person would know that a poll that includes personal details like a mailing address or telephone number is not really anonymous.


I wonder what percentage identify as asexual?


Excellent question!

Yes, I had noticed that.

I wonder if a survey which had show that most people who self identified as gay were white, well educated and well off would have produced such an aggressive ad hominem attack on the OP?
