What Percentage of the Population Is Gay?

In his 1948 book, , Alfred Kinsey shocked the world by announcing that 10% of the male population is gay. A 1993 Janus Report estimated that nine percent of men and five percent of women had more than „occasional“ homosexual relationships. The 2000 U.S. Census Bureau found that homosexual couples constitute less than 1% of American households. The Family Research Report says „around 2-3% of men, and 2% of women, are homosexual or bisexual.“ The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force estimates three to eight percent of both sexes. So who’s right — what percentage of the population is homosexual?

It may be that no one will ever know for sure. To some people, homosexuality is a matter of perception and definition. Furthermore, many people have trouble admitting their homosexuality to themselves, much less to a researcher. But when Gallup asked Americans for their best estimate of the American gay and lesbian population, the results made all the figures mentioned above look conservative.

In August 2002*, Gallup asked Americans, in an open-ended format, to estimate the percentage of American men and the percentage of American women who are homosexual. The average estimates were that 21% of men are gay and 22% of women are lesbians. In fact, roughly a quarter of the public thinks more than 25% of men and 25% of women are homosexual. It should be pointed out, too, that many Americans (at least one in six) could not give an estimate.

Male respondents tend to give lower estimates of both the male and female homosexual population than female respondents do. The average estimates among male respondents are that 16% of men and 21% of women are homosexual. Among female respondents, the average estimates are that 26% of men and 23% of women are homosexual. Somewhat interestingly, both sexes believe there are more homosexuals in the opposite sex than in their own sex.

Before the 1980s, the few representations of homosexuality in popular culture tended to consist of potentially dangerous social deviants (think Norman Bates in ). Since then, however, the portrayal of gay characters in pop culture have become far more numerous and mostly positive. That growing representation may have spurred growing acceptance — and inflated population estimates. In the last 10 years, the number of Americans saying they feel homosexuality should be considered an acceptable alternative lifestyle has gone from 38% (June 1992) to 51% (May 2002).

„Seeing ourselves reflected positively encourages gay people to come out,“ said Cathy Renna, news media director for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). „And when people know real gay men and lesbians it increases their level of understanding and acceptance.“ If you doubt that Ellen, Rosie and others have had an effect on Americans‘ acceptance of homosexuality, consider this — MTV and Showtime are about to launch a cable channel directed at the homosexual market. They estimate that gays and lesbians make up 6.5% of television’s audience.

Whether increased acceptance of homosexuality has led to an upsurge in the number of positive media portrayals of gay characters or vice versa, one result seems to be that Americans now tend to overestimate the gay population in America. While most expert estimates place America’s homosexual population at 10% or less, Americans tend to guess that the number is higher, around 20%.

*Results based on telephone interviews with 489 (for those estimating percentages of lesbian women) and 518 (for those estimating percentages of gay men) conducted May 6-9, 2002. For results based on the total sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±5%.

What Percentage of the Population is Gay 2021

LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. Common variants of LGBT are LGBTQ, LGBTQ+, LGBTQIA, and LGBTQIA+, which do not represent different community politics but are preferred by some. These variants are more inclusive of all individuals who are non-heterosexual and non-cisgender instead of exclusively applying to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

Unfortunately, LGBTQ+ people face discrimination, inequality, and violence worldwide. Countries have different rights encompassing everything from legal recognition of same-sex marriages to the death penalty. In the United States, the landmark Supreme Court case, Obergefell vs. Hodges, ruled it unconstitutional for the state to ban same-sex marriages. As of 2020, 37 states and D.C. have legalized gay marriage. The remaining 13 states have a ban on same-sex marriages; however, eight have court rulings in favor of allowing them.

The IDRlabs sexual orientation test is going viral and it will tell you exactly how gay you are

The quiz reveals where you sit on the gay, straight, bisexual and asexual spectrum…

2019 has already blessed us with some iconic viral content. In the space of just two months, the internet has come up with a bucketload of hilarious memes and wild challenges. It’s hard to believe it but this year alone, we’ve seen everything from the legendary war of Kylie Jenner versus the egg (a moment) to the iconic ‚break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored‘ challenge (a mess). It’s been real and we’re loving every minute of it.

However, the internet never sleeps and now everyone is obsessing over something completely new. It’s no secret that we all love a good quiz and now IDRlabs is taking over social media with the hit „Erotic Response and Orientation Scale“. Created by psychologist Michael Storms, the sexuality quiz uses science (well kind of…) to determine exactly where you sit on the gay, straight, bisexual, asexual and spectrum.

Is 10% of the population really gay?

Drawing on the widest survey of sexual behaviour since the Kinsey Report, David Spiegelhalter, in his book Sex By Numbers, answers key questions about our private lives. Here he reveals how Kinsey’s contested claim that 10% of us are gay is actually close to the mark

So where did Bruce Voeller, a scientist who was a founder and first director of the NGTF, get this nice round 10% from? To find out, we have to delve back into Alfred Kinsey’s surveys in 1940s America, which were groundbreaking at the time but are now seen as archaic in their methods: he sought out respondents in prisons and the gay underworld, made friends with them and, over a cigarette, noted down their behaviours using an obscure code. Kinsey did not believe that sexual identity was fixed and simply categorised, and perhaps his most lasting contribution was his scale, still used today, in which individuals are rated from exclusively heterosexual to exclusively homosexual on a scale of 0 to 6.

Kinsey’s headline finding was that “at least 37% of the male population has some homosexual experience between the beginning of adolescence and old age”, meaning physical contact to the point of orgasm. He claimed that 13% of males were predominately homosexual for at least three years between the ages of 16 and 55 (scoring at least 4) and that 4% of males were exclusively homosexual all their lives (scoring 6). For 30-year-old US men, he estimated that 83% would score 0 (totally heterosexual), 8% would be 1 or 2 on the scale, and 9% would be at least a 3. He acknowledged that people could move on the scale during their lifetime, and indeed Kinsey himself is said to have moved from a 1 or 2 when younger to a 3 or 4 in middle age.

When he published his study on women in 1953, Kinsey estimated that 20% of women had had some same-sex experience and 13% to orgasm. In unmarried females between the ages of 20 and 35, he claimed there was at least some homosexual experience in 11%-20%, and 1%-3% were exclusively homosexual.

So, in 1973, when Voeller was putting together the NGTF campaign, he went back to Kinsey’s estimates for those with predominantly homosexual experience (4 to 6 on his scale) for at least three years. As this was around 7% for women and 13% for men he took an average to get the headline figure: 10% of the population was gay.

This 10% claim was controversial, to say the least, and reignited old arguments about Kinsey’s poor survey methods. But even cleaned-up data gave similar answers, and Voeller stuck to the 10%, stating in 1990 that “the concept that 10% of the population is gay has become a generally accepted ‘fact’… As with so many pieces of knowledge (and myths), repeated telling made it so.”

This did not stop this figure being strongly disputed by conservatives, who were overjoyed when, in 1991, the US National Survey of Men estimated that only 2.3% of men said that they had not been exclusively heterosexual, while only 1.1% said they had been exclusively homosexual. Statistics had become part of a political battleground, with heated arguments back and forth, but unfortunately without any agreed definition: what was meant by “homosexual”?

When it became necessary to predict what would happen to the Aids epidemic, it was vital to find out what people actually did with each other. It was clear that just asking people their sexuality could give wildly differing answers depending on how people interpreted terms such as “homosexual”, and so a more nuanced approach was adopted. Surveys started to distinguish between identity (what sexual orientation you claim); attraction (who you find sexually attractive); and behaviour (whether you have had same-sex experiences). The numbers for each area turn out to be very different.

Let’s start with sexual identity. The National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal) is the most reliable source of information on what Britons do in private, and has taken place every 10 years since 1990. Natsal-3, from around 2010, asked which “best describes how you think of yourself”: a) heterosexual/straight; b) gay/lesbian; c) bisexual, d) other?

Over an age-range from 16 to 74, 1% of women and 1.5% of men consider themselves gay/lesbian, and 1.4% of women and 1% of men think of themselves as bisexual. But there is a clear gradient with age, with a much higher proportion in younger people, particularly in younger women: the percentage for women between 16 and 24 jumps nearly fourfold.

Sexual identity is also now part of official government statistics. As part of its huge household survey, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found 1.1% reported their identity as gay or lesbian – roughly the same as Natsal. But only 0.4% of respondents reported themselves as bisexual to ONS, around a third that reported to Natsal. So is this evidence of bias in the Natsal participants or a sign of reluctance to open up in a general household survey that is largely concerned with mundane matters such as shopping habits?

I am inclined to go with Natsal, and my judgment would be that roughly one in 80 adults under 75 would consider themselves gay/lesbian and one in 80 bisexual, but with the balance towards bisexual in women. That works out to a total of nearly 1.2 million – the population of Birmingham.

There are around 9 million LGBT (lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender) Americans, roughly equivalent to the population of New Jersey, according to a recent US review. But, just as in the UK, the routine US National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) comes up with a lower figure for bisexuality than the dedicated sex surveys: it seems plausible that there is less willingness to acknowledge bisexual identity in routine surveys, whereas those who clearly identify themselves as gay or lesbian are willing to be more upfront .

Same-sex sexual behaviour can come in all degrees of intensity. So Natsal carefully distinguishes a “same-sex experience”, which could be just a smooch in the dark, from a “same-sex partner”, who is someone with whom you have had any genital contact intended to achieve orgasm. Respondents are asked about activity at any age, so adolescent fumblings counted.

For women in the age range 16 to 44, the proportion who report having had some same-sex experience has shown a dramatic rise over the past 20 years: from 4% in 1990 to 10% in 2000, and to 16% in 2010 – a massive change in behaviour over such a short period. But this is not all just girls kissing girls in imitation of Madonna and Britney Spears; around half report genital contact, and around half of these in the past five years, so that overall nearly one in 20 women report a same-sex partner in the past five years.

But has there really been a change, or are women simply more willing to report what they get up to? Using some neat cross-checking, Natsal reckons that the change between 1990 and 2000 was partly due to more honest reporting, but the rise in 2000 and 2010 was all real.

And it is clear that there is a lot of experimental activity – roughly, for each woman who has had a recent same-sex partner there are two more of the same age who have had some same-sex contact in their lives, but no partner in the past five years.

Men show a different pattern. In 2010, about 8% of 16- to 44-year-old men reported having had a same-sex experience: this is higher than in 1990, possibly associated with both better reporting and the decline in fear of HIV, but there have been no substantial recent changes.

However, the picture shows a clear peak of lifetime same-sex experience for men aged around 60, and then a dramatic drop in those around 70, a pattern not seen in women. History might provide some explanation: men now aged around 60 were teenagers in the liberating 60s, when homosexuality was legalised, while men who are now around 70 grew up when same-sex male behaviour in men was illegal and frequently prosecuted. Much younger men, meanwhile, would have come to adulthood in the more sober era of HIV.

Overall the proportion of people with same-sex experience is far higher than the proportion who identify themselves as gay and bisexual. This must mean that many same-sex contacts are by people who do not consider themselves gay or bisexual. That’s just what we find in reputable surveys: in the last big US survey, 10% of women and 3% of men who identified themselves as “heterosexual” also reported a same‑sex contact.

Hence the public health world uses the rather clumsy phrase “men who have sex with men” (MSM) rather than “homosexual” or “gay”.

And there is one characteristic that unites female and male same-sex experience: the rates are two to three times higher among those with further education than those with no qualifications.

Along with changes in behaviour, there’s been a consistent shift in attitudes to same-sex partnerships . Natsal has been asking the same questions at 10-year intervals, and the proportion of 16- to 44-year-old women who agree that “same-sex relationships are not wrong at all” has gone up from 28% in 1990 to 66% in 2010 – an extraordinary reversal of opinion over just 20 years. Men are a bit more conservative, but agreement has still more than doubled, from 23% to 50%.

Bruce Voeller didn’t live to see the changes in attitudes he had fought for so hard. He carried on writing academic papers on the history of oral and anal sex, and was at the historic meeting that decided the term “Aids” in 1982 – some recall it was his suggestion. He died aged 59 in 1994 of an Aids-related illness in California.

Yet his legacy lives on. Because, if we consider possible transient same-sex behaviour, his rather wild stat-in-the-dark begins to look rather reasonable. Identity aside, ten per cent of the population, it seems, could well be involved in same sex behaviour after all.

How many people are gay in the world?

In 1948, Alfred Kinsey, an American sexologist and researcher, concluded an average of 1 in 10 people in the world are gay.

His results were hotly disputed due to his questionable methods – seeking out respondents in prison, or by word of mouth.

In Kinsey’s defence, it’s never been easy to put a precise figure on an exactly what percentage of the population is gay. Whilst there has been an increase in people being comfortable with ‚coming out‘, there are still sections of the community afraid to do so due to historical persecution.

Find out if you’re LGBTQ+ or are just going through a phase by trying this test now.

LGBTQ+ Population by State

The demographics of sexual orientation are very difficult to track because there are no official ways to obtain this information. While surveys gather self-reported data, there are challenges to researchers in inquiring on such a sensitive subject. Also, different questions yield different results. For example, one set of questions may seek self-reported data on same-sex sexual experiences, while another set may seek data surrounding personal identification as lesbian, gay, or bisexual.

The UCLA Williams Institute analyzed surveys conducted by Gallup Polling from 2012 to 2017 and CDC data from 2015 and 2017 to gather estimates of the LGBT population in each state.

The states with the highest LGBTQ+ populations, as a percentage of the total population, are:

In terms of actual population numbers, California has the largest LGBTQ+ population of 1,859,000. San Francisco and Santa Rosa are considered the gayest cities in the U.S.. Seattle, Boston, and Portland finish the top five.

Below is a table of each state’s LGBTQ+ population and its percentage of its total population.

Take the IDRlabs sexuality test below.

IDRlabs claims that the test was formed to „account for problems with the Kinsey Scale Test, which many found to be overly binary in its approach to sexual orientation.“ They also say that it includes „a more complex and less linear understanding of non-binary orientations“. It is divided into four quadrants and tells you what percent gay, straight, bisexual, asexual you are. With that in mind, it’s no shock it’s gone viral.

For the most part people have found that it’s surprisingly accurate but there have been a few complaints. Some are funny (it seems that some gay people are offended at the suggestion that they are part heterosexual) but others are major. In spite of the fact that the quiz says that it’s „more complex“, it still doesn’t take into account the fact that people are non binary.

Gay Test – How to find out if you’re gay or not (according to the scientists)

It is safe to say that only a very small minority of people have gone through life without ever questioning their own sexuality in one way or another. Some may say they have’nt, but they are most likely lying.

Even the straightest dude has at some point made an extra look at another guy, and even the gayest gal do find some guys attractive. To what degree they are questioning, that is of course a totally different matter.

As common as it is to put people into boxes based upon classical stereotypes, you should think that there was some full-proof way to decide if you are gay or not. But it really isn’t.

And with all the horrible things that have been done to LGBTQ people throughout history, and still going on in many coutries, that is probably a good thing.

However, that doesn’t mean that efforts haven’t been made to try to figure out a test that can determine your sexual orientation.

The world of being gay

Pridermarches, festivals and events celebrating the cultural, social and legal rights of the LGBTIQA (which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queen and Asexual) community are held in most parts of the world. However, there are still pockets of the globe where being homosexual is considered a criminal offense.

In these communities, both men and women are considered outcasts, some are jailed and others are punished by death. In 2017, The Guardian reported there are still 8 countries where engaging in homosexual activity can result in the death penalty. These countries fall within the African, Middle Eastern and Southern Asian regions.

Although attitudes have evolved significantly in the West, there are still some who are forced by their families or religious organisations to undergo conversion therapy. This type of therapy aims to turn a gay person straight.

To date, there is no empirical evidence that proves changing a person’s sexuality is possible. It’s an intrusive process that often leads to a lack of self-esteem. As far back as 1935, Sigmund Freud, the father of modern psychology, wrote this to a parent requesting he perform conversion therapy on her gay son; „(homosexuality) is nothing to be ashamed of, no vice, no degradation; it cannot be classified as an illness.“

So, how many people in the world are gay?

Getting accurate data is tricky. Many people won’t admit their sexuality to themselves – let alone in a survey. For others, it’s more complex.

For example, are heterosexuals with previous homosexual experiences counted as gay? Some researchers even segregate results between those who had orgasms and those who did not. Different surveys have varying methodologies.

Even how questions are phrased can lead to mixed results. Given research has its limitations, is it still possible to determine approximately what percentage of the population is gay?

While it is difficult to know precisely what percentage of the world is gay. Looking at the US, one of the western world’s largest populations, we can get a gauge on some mainstream data. A 2015 Gallup poll reported that 3.8 percent of Americans identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. Interestingly, in that same poll, it was revealed that the American public estimated that number to be 23%.

How many Australians are gay?

To understand what percentage of Australia is gay, a report by the Australian Human Rights Commission gives us some insight. In 2014 it published results that showed up to 11 in 100 Australians have a diverse sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex.

They also disclosed that the number of same-sex couples in 2011 has more than tripled since 1996. The Wikipedia article on the demographics of sexual orientation provides a comprehensive recap of this research.

A more recent study conducted by Tom Wilson and Fiona Shalley at Charles Darwin University found 3.2% of the total adult population 18+ identified as non-heterosexual.

To further understand ‚LGBTIQA statistics Australia‘, Roy Morgan Research produced a report in 2015 titled Is Australia getting gayer–and how gay will we get? The findings were based on a longitudinal study that ran from 2006 to 2014. It involved over 180,000 men and women in various age clusters. As the years progressed, the percentage of people who identified as homosexual grew from 2.4% in 2006-2008 to 3.1% n 2009-2011 and finally at 3.4% in 2012-2014.

Whatever the percentage, through education and with compassion and understanding it is only getting easier LGBTIQA community to keep coming out of the closet and ultimately help provide true statistical data.

Sexuality test?

Sexuality these days is much more complex than just gay , straight or bisexual – with hundreds of identities of varying kinds used both online and off.

Many readers might be asking for an “am I gay test”, but are not sure if one exists.

Stanford University study acertained sexuality of people on a dating site with up to 91 per cent accuracy

Artificial intelligence can accurately guess whether people are gay or straight based on photos of their faces, according to new research suggesting that machines can have significantly better “gaydar” than humans.

The studyStanford University – which found that a computer algorithm could correctly distinguish between gay and straight men 81 per cent of the time, and 74 per cent for women – has raised questions about the biological origins of sexual orientation, the ethics of facial-detection technology and the potential for this kind of software to violate people’s privacy or be abused for anti-LGBT purposes.

The machine intelligence tested in the research, which was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and first reported in the Economist, was based on a sample of more than 35,000 facial images that men and women publicly posted on a US dating website.

The researchers, Michal Kosinski and Yilun Wang, extracted features from the images using “deep neural networks”, meaning a sophisticated mathematical system that learns to analyse visuals based on a large dataset.

Many many studies have been carried out internationally, and none has really come to any decent conclusion. The trouble is its hard to rationalise and test something as diverse as sexuality.

If studied the studies and serveys that have been carried out and have steadily built up a set of remotely reliable statistics.

My values show about 4% of people would identify as something other than straight, with an approximately 3:2 ratio of men to women.

I’d say of the 4%, 3.2% are homosexual, 0.6% are bi, and the 0.1% would be one of the other groups.

I’ll stress now that these values are based on results with massive variances in testing criteria and demographically proportions. Frankly I’d hope the LGBT community was even larger than that!

Not sure how come you think that a test score is the determinant in knowing whether a person is gay or straight. It comes from an inner sense of feeling. A test is not necessary.

I’ve never had any doubt about my sexuality. I’m boringly straight. I know this because I am fascinated by women, and sexually and romantically deeply disinterested in men. Ta-da!

I took my test and got an A+. ,… Best in Class, my peers didn’t do quite as well some of them struggled to get a this just makes me a Gay nerd.

There is no such test. You know who you’re attracted to from direct experience and introspection.

its not a disease -_- you cant test that. does people test that there straight ? no … your just born like that you just know it

live musicals this year“. After which you will be provided with a percentage of exactly how gay you are! Make sure you answer all of the gay test questions honestly though!

You have to enter your age and sexuality as well as why you are taking the gay test, whether it’s for fun or for information. The gay test is in two parts and mostly just asks you which picture is more attractive.

AllTheTests.commultiple gay tests for you to determine your own sexuality. So if you have been asking yourself „Am I gay?”, you will find out for sure by taking one of the hundreds of gay tests on the site. Whether it’s the „Longest Gay Test” or the „What Gender(s) Are You Attracted To?”, you will finally be able to answer the question, Are you gay?

has one gay test that will let you know the answer to the question, „Am I gay?”. The test is short and relies on some stereotypes since the first question asks you how long you take to get ready in the morning. The gay test is short and sweet, so it only takes a few minutes to complete before they let you know whether you are gay or not.

is a popular online website that provides endless entertainment. They have a fun and unique gay test that has you pick your favorite version of Beyonce to determine your level of homosexuality. They have questions that other sites do not ask, and that seems very random for the results you are trying to achieve. For example, they ask you „Which US President Do You Most Identify With?” How this determines the results were not sure, but it’s sure fun taking the test. Our Favorite question? ”Pick An Arbitrary Box.” Clearly this site is made for entertainment, but man is it entertaining.

is a gay test that seems to take itself a bit more seriously than most other gay test sites. The gay test is 11 questions long and gives you a numerical result from 1-100 of how gay you are. All of the questions are pretty straight forward with the typical stuff like „Do you like shopping” and „How fashionable are you?”.

is a gay test for any man who has ever asked himself „Am I Gay?”. The gay test is about 15 questions and it takes a minute to get your results while the site calculates your percentage of homosexuality. They provide you a badge that you can display anywhere with pride, assuming you get the results you wanted.

You can take another gay test on the site like „How Good Is Your Gaydar?” or „How Gay Is Your Music Taste”?

is a gay test from the OCD centre in Los Angeles. This gay test is meant to be taken more seriously since it was designed for men suffering from HOCD to determine where their fears stem from and what steps they can take to become less obsessive. If HOCD is something you are suffering from, then this test is for you.

site designed for gay people to determine their level of homosexuality and to get their gay card that they can wear with pride. You can take your badge to a gay pride event to let other men know exactly what type of gay man you are. It also displays the „10 gay-mandments” and tells you that you shall not commit 3 sins. The card is essentially a gay ID badge.

is a simple gay test that is basic, but that will still let you know if you are gay. The questions are simple such as „How often have you wondered if you are gay?” and some stereotypical ones like „Do you enjoy show tunes?”. The gay test results will simply tell you if you are straight, gay, or bi.

is a short and simple gay test that only consists of 6 questions. All of the questions are pretty straightforward and if you are answering them honestly, you should know what your sexuality is. The last question is just ‘What do you want to be?’ This refers to whether you want to be straight, gay or bi.

that gives asks you some straightforward questions. The questions aren’t vague and interpretive, instead they just straight up ask you ’Do you get a boner when you see a hairy man with no shirt on?’ and ’Do you look at gay pornography?’. I don’t think it takes a genius to answer the question ‘Am I Gay?’, if you answered yes to either of those questions.

Gay and Lesbian Rights

Do you think gay or lesbian relations between consenting adults should or should not be legal? As you may know, there has been considerable discussion in the news regarding the rights of homosexual men and women. In general, do you think homosexuals should or should not have equal rights in terms of job opportunities? Do you feel that homosexuality should be considered an acceptable alternative lifestyle or not?

Teens on Homosexuality: Nature or Nurture?

The question of nature or nurture stands at the very center of many complex issues. Why, for instance, do some children perform better on standardized tests than others do? What causes some Americans to be overweight, while others never gain an ounce? Nowhere is the uncertainty of nature versus nurture more widely discussed than in issues surrounding human sexuality. What do teens think about the possible causes of homosexuality?

New York Times Policy Focuses Attention on Homosexual Civil Unions

Americans remain slightly more likely to oppose, rather than favor, formalized civil unions between gay and lesbian partners. Support for legal same-sex unions is highest among Americans living on the East and West coasts, among Democrats, among those with higher levels of education, and among younger generations. The issue was recently launched back into the news with The New York Times‘ decision to include commitment ceremony announcements for gay and lesbian partners along with its traditional wedding announcements in its Sunday paper.

QUESTION!

Not trying to disrespect anyone but I have a question. Who the fuck do gays, lesbians and transgenders think they are asking or demanding apologies from comedians for making gay jokes? I have been to several gay and lesbian comics shows and there is a hell of a lot of straight jokes. What’s the difference you may ask; we laugh and don’t get pissy mad or butt hurt. They are jokes people funny haha it sad the last several shows I have been too they now start out with “remember people things in the show are only jokes it’s all in fun my intentions here is to make you laugh not offend anyone” I mean really a fucking disclaimer?

Gay Test 1 – The Kinsey Scale Test

The most famous one is the Kinsey scale. It was developed by Alfred Kinsey in 1948 as a way of defining someone’s sexuality more diversly than just as gay, straight or bisexual.

The test asks people to plot themselves on a scale of sexuality from 0 (exclusively heterosexual) to 6 (exclusively homosexual).

While less than 2 percent of people identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual when given strict labels to choose from, almost half of young people don’t identify as exclusively straight when asked to plot their sexuality on the Kinsey scale.

An official Kinsey “test” does not exist, which is contrary to popular belief and many tests across the web. The original Kinsey research team assigned a rating number based on a person’s sexual history.

Gay Test 2 – The Purple Red Scale Test

Many sexologists see the Kinsey scale as relevant to sexual orientation but not comprehensive enough to cover all sexual identity issues.

They suggest that sexual identity involves at least three different spectra. Sexual orientation is only one of them (two others being biological sex and gender identity).

There have been suggested many alternatives to the Kinsey scale, including the Purple Red Scale. This test measures attraction in two dimensions: *who* you’re attracted to and *how* you’re attracted to them.

Gay Test 3 – The Genderbread Person

This is not really a test but a way of conceptualising gender and orientation. It consists of a yellow stereotypically male-shaped (think of gendered bathroom signs) “gingerbread man”-like figure.

It has various parts of its anatomy labelled to refer to various parts of human gender, genitals, orientation, presentation, and sexuality. Read more about it here.

Give the tests a try, but don’t take the results too seriously. There is really no test that can accurately answer if you’re gay or not.

You just have to take your time and figure it out on your own. One day all those labels will be gone anyway. Or at least we can hope so.

I’m 53 I just got out of a bad relationship about 7 months ago I like guys younger than me I’m a country boy from Missouri I love outdoors stuff but I can’t seem to find the guy I like big muscle guys or beer belly don’t don’t anything for me I like skinny to normally built guys I’m on Facebook under the name

This so stupid because I am a girl why? This is not even a test all it does is tell you something it is sum?????

I love the fact that I’m gay. It allows me to be myself.

Im a 57 yr old guy whos married to a woman. Ive know for 30 urs that im gay. How do i tell her without destroyong her. Im so unhappy but she has been really good to !!!!

You have to acknowledge to yourself first that your not being very good to her in return. Think if it were the other way around would you want her to be forcing herself to stay in a marriage with you despite how unhappy it was making her all because she didn’t want to hurt your feelings, it should make realize immediately what the right thing to do no matter the consequences

Grooming styles

The research found that gay men and women tended to have “gender-atypical” features, expressions and “grooming styles”, essentially meaning gay men appeared more feminine and visa versa. The data also identified certain trends, including that gay men had narrower jaws, longer noses and larger foreheads than straight men, and that gay women had larger jaws and smaller foreheads compared to straight women.

Human judges performed much worse than the algorithm, accurately identifying orientation only 61 per cent of the time for men and 54 per cent for women. When the software reviewed five images per person, it was even more successful – 91 per cent of the time with men and 83 per cent with women.

Broadly, that means “faces contain much more information about sexual orientation than can be perceived and interpreted by the human brain”, the authors wrote.

The paper suggested that the findings provide “strong support” for the theory that sexual orientation stems from exposure to certain hormones before birth, meaning people are born gay and being queer is not a choice.

The machine’s lower success rate for women also could support the notion that female sexual orientation is more fluid.

Implications

While the findings have clear limits when it comes to gender and sexuality – people of colour were not included in the study, and there was no consideration of transgender or bisexual people – the implications for artificial intelligence (AI) are vast and alarming. With billions of facial images of people stored on social media sites and in government databases, the researchers suggested that public data could be used to detect people’s sexual orientation without their consent.

It’s easy to imagine spouses using the technology on partners they suspect are closeted, or teenagers using the algorithm on themselves or their peers. More frighteningly, governments that continue to prosecute LGBT people could hypothetically use the technology to out and target populations. That means building this kind of software and publicising it is itself controversial given concerns that it could encourage harmful applications.

But the authors argued that the technology already exists, and its capabilities are important to expose so that governments and companies can proactively consider privacy risks and the need for safeguards and regulations.

“It’s certainly unsettling. Like any new tool, if it gets into the wrong hands, it can be used for ill purposes,” said Nick Rule, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, who has published research on the science of gaydar. “If you can start profiling people based on their appearance, then identifying them and doing horrible things to them, that’s really bad.”

Rule argued it was still important to develop and test this technology: “What the authors have done here is to make a very bold statement about how powerful this can be… Now we know that we need protections.”

Kosinski was not available for an interview, according to a Stanford spokesperson. The professor is known for his work with Cambridge University on psychometric profiling, including using Facebook data to make conclusions about personality.

Donald Trump’s campaign and Brexit supporters deployed similar tools to target voters, raising concerns about the expanding use of personal data in elections.

In the Stanford study, the authors also noted that artificial intelligence could be used to explore links between facial features and a range of other phenomena, such as political views, psychological conditions or type of research further raises concerns about the potential for scenarios like the science-fiction movie Minority Report, in which people can be arrested based solely on the prediction that they will commit a crime.

“AI can tell you anything about anyone with enough data,” said Brian Brackeen, CEO of Kairos, a face recognition company. “The question is as a society, do we want to know?”

Mr Brackeen, who said the Stanford data on sexual orientation was “startlingly correct”, said there needs to be an increased focus on privacy and tools to prevent the misuse of machine learning as it becomes more widespread and advanced.

Rule speculated about AI being used to actively discriminate against people based on a machine’s interpretation of their faces: “We should all be collectively concerned.” – (Guardian Service)
