So 3.4% are willing to identify to a stranger that they're LGBT. That means there are at least 5 times that number who aren't willing to be identified as such to a total stranger or to the govt.

That puts us around 15-20% of the population LGBT.

Again, the Gallup poll found 3.4% willing to SELF IDENTIFY TO A TOTAL STRANGER as LGBT.

Until homophobia and discrimination is gone, we will likely never know how many people in America are something other than heterosexual.

I'm just waiting for the typical anti-gays to pounce on the 3.4% number and proclaim how insignificant we are because on 3.4% are willing to self identify as LGBT for whatever reason.

Well, to put it into perspective...we are twice as numerous as Mormons in the US.

They only have 1.7% of the population.

3.4% is the cap that the Lord places on a pestilence.

How Hitlerish of you. Fortunately for you, you are easily recognizable by those knuckles you drag along the ground. Oh wait, that's how to recognize your mother.

That 3.4% were those who identified as LGBT, figure at least twice that number are closet cases like you.

Another would be to ensure you never procreate. Vasectomies for the ignorant, who do no deserve to bring a child into the world!

So? And you are claiming to be what... someone who only has sex to procreate? How noble, and how untrue.
