That 5% – please read & comment. Maybe RSers can clear this up for me.
Good afternoon, here’s my conumdrum. The democrats are saying ONLY 5% of Americans will have their health insurance cancelled, oops, transitioned. No big deal.
Less than 5% of Americans are homosexual in their orientation. BIG DEAL ( By the way, let me disclose that I do not believe that gays are born that way.)
For one, we do not have to concern ourselves as not that many are involved when you consider the whole.
For the other, we must change our entire way of describing man/woman because that 5% is VERY important. Please see http://www.redstate.com/2013/10/31/you-will-be-made-to-care-2/
This is madness.
Remember reading someplace that the homosexual or gay population in the US is less than 5%. Could not find that article again but here is something else with about the same numbers found today.
How many gay people are there in the United States?
The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, a sexual orientation law and public policy think tank, estimates that 9 million (about 3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (2011). The institute also found that bisexuals make up 1.8% of the population, while 1.7% are gay or lesbian. Transgender adults make up 0.3% of the population.
