Yes it is. May I try one?<quoted text>
AGAIN you post this falsehood?
okay. So again I post this alternate perception, based upon Census numbers, NOT vapor:
309,000,000 Americans X 3% homosexual = 9,270,000 homosexuals
131,729 homosexual 'couples' X 2 = 262,458 involved in homosexual 'marriages'
262,458 in homosexual 'marriages' divided by 9,270,00 homosexuals means more than 97% of homosexuals have rejected 'marriage' as an actual practice.
Let's try this again.
309,000,000 Americans X 3% Gay Americans = 9,270,000.
9,270,000 Gay Americans / 50 States = 185,400 Gay Americans per State
185,400 Gay Americans per State X 6 States that allow Gay Marriage = 1,112,400
131,729 Reported Gay Marriages X 2 = 262,458 Gay Americans in a Marriage
(262,458 Gay Americans in a Marriage / 1,112,400 X 100)= 23.6%
So proportionally, 23.6% of gay people are in a gay marriage. This rate would go up if you included civil unions and domestic partnerships. That means that about 1/4 of gay people are in a committed monogamous relationship.
Let's do heterosexuals now.
309,000,000 Americans X .97 Straight Americans = 299,730,000
According to the Census, a total of 114,567,419 households were reported.
Of those, 48.6% were reported as married couples.
114,567,419 X .486 = 55,679,765 married couples.
55,679,765 married couples X 2 = 111,359,539 married people.
299,730,000 Straight Americans / 111,359,539 married people X 100 = 37.1%.
So 23.1% of gay and lesbian Americans are reported to be in a marriage, and 37.1% of straight Americans are reported to be in a marriage.
That discrepency has a lot of factors involved, but it does reveal that gays and lesbians are entering committed, monogamous relationships at steadily increasing rates, and the more accepting the society is for GLBT people, the more quickly you will see the two percentages become closer.
Isn't math fun?
Math is fun, isn't it?
If there are 100,000 marriages on record and 52% end in divorce then 52000 of those marriages constitute 104,000 heterosexuals who rejected the idea of marriage compared to 96000 individual who didn't. When one factors in the number of heterosexuals who are in long term committed relationships and have not married, that means a even higher significant number of heterosexuals rejected the idea of marriage.
