Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation.
The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual.
That’s 2.3 % for those keeping count…
The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey.
Let me go out on a limb here. If I was in marketing and went to my boss and said ” Let’s go after 2.3% of market while we piss off the other 96.6%” How long would I have a job? No, friends, something is rotten in Denmark. It just doesn’t make sense.
An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.”
