    really? You are really easy to convince. Go check your bank account. I just put $1,000,000 into it.

    We are attempting here to define people based on behaviors.
    Constraining the definition to "exclusively gay" will not paint a very accurate picture. If we do, then by inverse comparison we should define straight as, exclusively heterosexual without exception.
    The resultant statistic will leave a very large segment to fall in between.

    It's all a matter of the context it was stated in.
    The original post clearly mentioned bi-sexual, etc. There was no mention of emotions whatsoever, only other sexual/gender preferences. What was that about context again?

    No, you were being purposely obtuse. The context was clear. You're kidding yourself if you believe you're making a point of some kind.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It probably would. So?

    Well, if the definition extended to people who have ever had sexual fantasies about the same sex, or who had ever acted on those fantasies, then I reckon I'd have to vote 'Greater than 15%', but it would be much, much greater than 15%. If it was limited to those who are publicly and openly gay-identified then it would be less that 15%, no doubt. See why I didn't vote?

    No, I don't. You're over-thinking the question.

    Okay, then I'll just leave you with what my best friend always says when someone accuses him of thinking that every attractive man he meets is gay. "Darling, I don't think EVERY man is gay. There are two types of men: gay men, and men with potential."

    If you would have asked this same question to me 2 years ago then I would have estimated less than 1%. Now I'm thinking it's closer to 5%. This coming out trend is becoming so popular that it has shifted my worldview. There is way more gay people than I ever thought in the past.

    I'm sorry but I believe the man that raped Ted Haggard should have had his left arm chopped off the first year, his right arm chopped off the second year, his left leg chopped off the third year, his right leg chopped off the fourth year, he should have been beat repeatedly every day for the next five years, then he should sit in prison for one more year in solitary confinement and then he should be executed in the 11th year.

    You probably think that he deserves a medal for recruiting another sodomite. Hell, you'll probably deny that he recruited him.
    The medal should go to his lover, for exposing a massive hypocrite and the futility of homophobia, yes
