Gay Marketing/Gay Marriage: What Are The Real Numbers?
Written on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 by Marilyn Assenheim
Studies conclude that the actual number of homosexuals in
gay men, lesbians and transgender, comprise a whopping 1.7% of the population. America
This percentage has been arrived at by several, extensive studies, such as that of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Perhaps the most significant of these is the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law study. What gives the Williams Institute such overarching credibility is that it is a gay and lesbian think tank. According to them, that 1.7% fraction climbs to 3.5% or 4.0% if one factors in self-declared bisexuals. A large number of “closeted” individuals also participated in their study. The Williams Institute findings were released in April of 2011.
According to an article in The Atlantic, May 2012: “These numbers (homosexual population percentages) are significant because identity — and not behavior — is the central determinant of whether or not someone will seek a same-sex marriage.”
These observations are not intended as a dissection of the entire dispute about gay marriage. The subject, historically and ethically, is too cumbersome to encapsulate in one article. It is, however, intended as a Constitutional red flag.
How and why has this issue taken such a predominant, societal role in contrast to the homosexual population’s minute numbers? Why worry?
The Wall Street Journal, March 27 (“Nelson Lund: A Social Experiment Without Science Behind It”) pointed out “The claimed right to same-sex marriage is not in the Constitution or in the court’s precedents, so the court must decide whether to impose a new law making marriage into a new and different institution…”
To pretend that there aren’t political motives at work are naïve, to say the least. This would not be the first time The Supreme Court has volunteered to assume the role of vigilante legislators, to fabricate a nationwide, legal precedent for something nowhere to be found in the Constitution; something that the majority of Americans would never vote for. Or ever get the chance to vote on. Or had their vote overturned by a court.
Homosexuality has become a constant presence. Why? Heterosexuality isn’t. Every public source, from news media, to public school indoctrination to the avalanche of
movies, television programming and even advertising is in morally outraged
lock-step to prove that homosexuality is far more prevalent than it is.
. . . . once the definition of marriage is changed there is no way to prevent anyone who wants to marry anyone or anything, from doing so. . . . the truth is that manufactured outrage can’t prevent marriage’s destruction once marriage is officially altered.
Tocqueville cautioned against “the tyranny of the majority.” But
has found herself
persecuted by the tyranny of the minority. Gay marriage is an unparalleled
marketing success. But it isn’t an “evolution.” And it certainly isn’t
