    There is no reason to give such a small percentage power or special rights

    Nope. Human sexuality is malleable, and relative portions of expression do indeed change over time and culture.

    We have observed them change over time throughout history and we can see different rates across cultures today.

    I am not really sure what you are referring to there, and I wonder how it was determined who was or was not gay. During significant periods of time for example it was not a good idea to actually admit you where gay, so in those time periods, how do you determine who is or is not?

    Less than 3% according to the liberals beloved big government and Obama administration. We all know liberals believe everything their beloved Obama administration says

    Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population - The Washington Post

    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.
    The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.”

    The figures offered a slightly smaller assessment of the size of the gay, lesbian and bisexual population than other surveys, which have pegged the overall proportion at closer to 3.5 or 4 percent. In particular, the estimate for bisexuals was lower than in some other surveys.
    The inclusion of the sexual-orientation question in an influential survey used to guide government funding and research decisions was viewed as a major victory for the gay community, which has struggled with a dearth of data about its special health needs.

    and during other time in history it was fine, and widespread - as it is in some cultures today. Ditto for pederasty. Would you say that most American men today are sexually attracted to boys?

    Who had post 18 in the pedophile comparison raffle? Seriously, can you guys ever discuss gays without the pedophile comparison?
