    In my estimation, I have no idea nor do I much care?

    As long as same-sex lovers leave me a few opposite-sex loving ladies that will find me appealing and vice versa, they can be 90% of the population for all I care.

    I'm sorry, but we have no room for inclusion, tolerance, restraint from rushing to judgment in modern society.
    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.

    Re: In your estimation, what percentage of the population is gay?

    For my part I'm going with roughly 10%. Although the country is nothing like how I remember growing up in the eighties, I'm almost entirely certain that the negative atmosphere is still great enough to prevent a significant portion of gays from self identifying.

    Hold on. If I want to choose 10%, though, do I vote for 6-10% or 10-15%?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe that any of those words are in the U.S. Constitution.

    Maybe we should put them there, eh?

    I say "...in your estimation" because, as someone else said in another thread, not all gay people are willing to admit it (for reasons of their own), so the best stats we have are most likely incomplete.

    Note also, bi-sexual, bi-curious, etc., are not included in the question. Straight (pun only slightly intended ) gay only.
    If I quota my friends about 50% are something other than strictly straight but maybe four of them would identify as gay. Most would say they are looking for an emotional connection and gender isn't that important

    Every new show made has gays and interracial couples. it is looking like it is a requirement to get the show on the air now.

    The Hollywood crowd definitely thinks the percentage is much higher than it actually is.

    2-4% for straight up gay folks, I suppose. I'd imagine that the entirety of American citizens of a LGBT sexual orientation would be at most 10%, though with bi-curious type folks, maybe cap it off at 15%.

    Re: In your estimation, what percentage of the population is gay?

    I didn't vote.

    That kind of information would have to come from a scientifically and statistically created/controlled poll or research....and since no one can tell if someone is gay by looking at them (it's a joke if people think they can always or even often tell)...an individual really cant do anymore than 'guess.' And I'd bet that that guess was heavily colored by their personal bias. Just IMO.

    It creates more fodder for topics, stories, controversy, etc.in the program's scripts.
