Distorting Numbers on Gay Identity

A misleading new state-by-state study claims that nearly 4 percent of American adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender with Washington, DC boasting the top LGBT population of nearly 10 percent.

These figures seem to contradict a 2011 study from the same experts at UCLA’s Williams Institute that showed only 1.7% saying they were gay or lesbian. Where’s the discrepancy?

The new numbers include bisexuals, who actually outnumber lesbians and gays. This is politically inconvenient for the gay rights argument because bisexuals by definition feel attraction to both genders, and so exercise some element of choice in how they express their sexuality.

Also, those permanently attracted to both men and women fit far less comfortably into the mold of monogamous marriage: limiting yourself to one person and one gender must go against your “nature” if you define yourself as bisexual.
