3.4% of US adults are LGBT?
Then why do they act like they are a majority?

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

Actually we just act like the majority support equal rights for us, because they do.

We may only be 15% of the population, but we have another 50%+ who support us.

From my personal experience over the past 30 years, I would say their quoted figure is far too low. From my personal experience I would say a more realistic figure is 5% - 8%.

Seems some gays will never give up on those higher numbers. There is power in numbers, after all, whether they are real or you just convince people they are real. Beware getting all you want gays. When you have all the privileges you clamor for and have successfully beaten down and shut up any and every one who holds onto traditional values and standards, then your lie will be all too apparent.

Say it IS 3.4%, then what are you haters so AFRAID of? That means in this country there would be about 11 million gays and lesbians...yeah, baby! Per state that would be 200,000 per state, divide that up by the many cities in the country, I have no idea how MANY major cities there I just did some quick checking and it is nebulous. The main thought is about 19,000 major cities, but that is including towns like Los Angeles and New York averaged in with Pierre, North Dakota and smaller "major" cities of that size.

So, that leaves 900 per city. Do you REALLY believe that there are that few of us? 900. That could all fit on one block if there were enough apartments.

How can that small amount POSSIBLY be a threat, or is it that you hets are so lazy and so easily influenced that we can take over with the flick of a pen?

HIV/AIDS will keep those numbers where they are. Not to mention meth use and all the other substance abuse problems among gays. The HIV rate is increasing among our youth because the last 10 years has been a misinformation nightmare putting our youth at risk. You might as well glamourize smoking again.
They are looking to increase their numbers by trying to be more 'involved' with children even though they forfeited the ability to have children.

Even if that's the percentage, what are you inferring? That they should have no rights?

Only 1.7% Americans are jews (5m out of 310m). By your argument, they should have no rights either.

Oh my my my. So many deliberate misconceptions packed into one short inanity.

Most importantly, HIV will do nothing to decrease the numbers of gays in future generations because--guess what--most gays are born in the same proportion among all classes of parents: gay parents, bisexual, heterosexual, single, monogamous, religious, rich, intelligent, working-class, stupid....

In fact, the relative number of gays is believed to be fairly uniform across different societies and different ages. So the number will probably neither increase nor decrease. It will simply remains steady as a percent of population.

And it really doesn't matter who gets sick or sterilized or executed. There will still be the same number of gays growing up in the next generation.

Homosexuals seem to be logically challenged.
I wasn't "inferring" anything.
I wasn't making an "argument".
I was simply asking a valid question.

"How can that small amount POSSIBLY be a threat".
It isn't just the numbers, the distribution is important. If that 3.4% secure jobs in the upper levels of government, legal, military, news industry, academe, and the entertainment industry, then there is a real threat. The military refers to that as a "Force Multiplier".

"or is it that you hets are so lazy"
Gays are like a recalcitrant child. Many straights, against their better judgement, are giving in just to shut you up.

"so easily influenced"
Yes, political correctness rears it's ugly head.

The gays claim that they simply want to "get equal".

Yeah, Darn It! We are going to get through school without intense bullying, just to spite YOU! We are going to meet a soulmate, fall in love, legally marry, and form families just to get back at idiots like yourself!!

Woohoo!
