Disease Control: Homosexuals Comprise Just 1.6% of the Population

The CDC just released the results of their survey to find out how many homosexuals there are in the U.S. Wait a minute. Isn’t that homophobic of the CDC? They’re the Centers for Disease Control. It’s almost as if they’re associating homosexuality with disease.

At any rate, they found that the homosexual population in America is a paltry 3.5 million people, about 1.6% of the adult population. This fringe minority group is the basis for “hate crime” laws that would make the Bible a piece of “hate” literature that needs to be banned. This fringe minority group is the basis for the forced paradigm shift we’re seeing with regards to marriage. This fringe minority group can shut down privately run bakeries when they refuse to bake them a cake. I’m sure you can think a lot more things that have been foisted on us in the name of equality for this fringe minority group.

Studies have shown that the homosexual population is far lower than what most Americans think it is. A Gallup poll showed that most Americans believed that homosexuals comprised anywhere from 25% to 30% of the population. That perception is not surprising given the glowing praise and attention that homosexuals constantly get in the political arena, the media, and in Hollywood.

Leaders in the homosexual community aren’t happy with the CDC’s survey results. The Washington Post reported:

They contend it is a gross undercount and are particularly upset because they worked for years to get sexual orientation added to the 57-year-old National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the government’s premier measure of Americans’ health statuses and behaviors. Now, the activists worry that the results will reduce the urgency of their causes and give fodder to their political foes.

“The truth is, numbers matter, and political influence matters,” said Scout, director of the nonprofit CenterLink’s Network of LGBT Health Equity, who goes by only one name. “If we really are 2 percent vs. 4 percent, it means people are going to say, ‘Okay, I’m only going to care half as much,’ ” he said.

[…]

For such a respected survey as the NHIS to produce such a small number is a blow, said Ellyn Ruthstrom, president of the Bisexual Resource Center in Boston. She noted that the percentage of bisexuals identified in the survey is particularly low compared with other surveys.

“It’s just going to make it harder for us when we’re going out and talking to people about the bisexual population,” she said. “We have a real hard time already with people not taking the bisexual identity seriously.”

It sort of reminds me of the Shakers, that religious sect formed in the 1700’s in England. They didn’t believe in reproduction, but they did allow for adoption. As a result, their numbers were always small, and they’ve all but died out.

The homosexual community of course doesn’t practice celibacy (now there’s an understatement) like the Shakers did. Their problem is simply that they can’t reproduce. So, they’re left with adoption and using surrogate mothers. I’m sure that makes them angry. How unfair it is that they’re not biologically allowed to reproduce. Doesn’t Science care about equality and reproductive rights? Evidently not.

By its very nature, homosexuality will always yield a small population. If homosexuals don’t like that, it’s not the CDC’s fault. They should take it up with natural selection, that homophobic scientific phenomenon that obviously favors heterosexuality.
