Thread: 52% of US teenagers identify as bisexual or gay

  1. #1

    Default 52% of US teenagers identify as bisexual or gay

    Six months ago I created this thread about 54% of under-25s in Britain identifying as something other than exclusively heterosexual in a YouGov poll. They were asked to rate their sexuality from 0 to 7, with 0 being only straight and 7 being only gay. Only a minority of the participants chose 0.

    The survey has been repeated with a sample of 300 Americans aged 13-20. 52% selected a rating for their sexuality corresponding to bisexual or gay.

    What will the world look like when these people are older? I think Vice sums up the situation by saying they're "Queer AF". When people in their 20s today are in their 80s, the world will be an extremely queer place.

    What will happen is 40 of those 54 will get laid and ditch the fad, 10 will find something even more stupid to identify with and the last 4 will still be gay but will live in a world where being gay isnt special anymore.

    Or you know the obviously biased study with a very small size of participants is wrong.I'm mean the the fact that they have cis gender as an option is a dead giveaway....
    Asking 300 people isn't nearly enough to get a real result.

    Great, because bisexuality is clearly superior than monosexuality.

    Could be a decent way to end global warming.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    Yeah and it'll be Hillary in a landslide. Polls is the U.S. suddenly have a huge liberal bias, I've got no faith in this.

    Well, 95% of college girls are bisexual or lesbian so there is that. /s

    This is interesting if true, but I find it unbelievable.

    I remember reading before that all humans are born with a degree of bisexuality.

    There might be some truth to this, but cultural mores, particularly American cultural mores would do in a lot of homo or bisexuality in boys very quickly. American men are supposed to like guns, football (our kind, the crazy violent kind), war, crappy beer, and the Republican Party. I'm exaggerating to an extent but you get the idea.

    American men also do not like government.

    Ugh, again this nonsense. The survey considers people as bisexuals who self-report a "gayness" of as low as 1 out of 5 points.
    With all the medial hype for homophilia, it's no wonder the kids these days find it hip to think themselves bi by self-reporting 1 or 2 points.

    The female population is much more likely to identify as bi-sexual according to a couple of earlier studies. It's also shown that pronography watched by women most frequently is of a lesbian nature. I think it's actually possible that ~40% of college girls are classifiable as secretely or openly bi-sexual.

    Oh please. Just about everyone's potentially bisexual, you just gotta stimulate the right bits at the right times. So what? It doesn't matter, nobody cares.
    Identity politics is just a fad, a cult, a herd-phenomenon: Don't be a sheep, be an individual.
    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves, but wiser people are full of doubts.

    Polls averaged about right, giving her a 2-3% lead.

    Meh, the sample is very small and the teens of that age will grow out of it soon.
    Also, they're probably misreporting their sexual preference. Girls 15 years old that say they're bi, should be asked "Have you ever entered a bus, café or club, seen a pretty girl and feel aroused? Feel lust for her? Want her?" You men all know what I mean. Don't pretend you don't, you do! Call me a pig if you want, but deep down, you know exactly what I mean.
    That's sexual attraction to the other (or same) sex.
    Watching porn? Not so much. It would probably cause arousal.

    If you make that clear, ask 3000 teens including kids from the rural communities, your numbers will change radically. Then, if you wait 10 years for them to be 23-30, the numbers would have dropped even more after the teens realize their sexual preference.

    Seriously, though, what makes you believe that everyone is potentially bisexual? Any good reason aside from your own experiences and gut feelings?

    There is an implicit liberal bias in the American media resulting in a heavy sampling bias.
