Introduction

This is my place for gay / lesbian / bisexual statistics, many of them not exactly politically correct. Gays are actually similar in many ways to Jews and Asians.

They are about 3% (not 10%) of the population, have over 40% 4-yr degrees, and have a high rate of hate crime victimization. Like Jews, but unlike Asians, they are also very liberal, and vote at rates nearly double that of the general population. My take on gays is that they're a fun bunch of talented people. Some positive stereotypes are that they are educated, talented, intelligent, and are good renters.

However, they do a lot of things that I wouldn't do or recommend to others, not if you want to live beyond 40. Note that I may or may not agree with some of the controversial stuff presented here. It's up to you to make your own judgements.

IF SILENCE=DEATH ANAL SEX=AIDS

One of the identifying behaviors that set gay men apart is anal sex,
which is statistically more likely to kill than smoking, but the PC
approach is that it is fine as long as a condom is used. The more
extreme position is that promiscuity is no worse for gays and every
group is at risk anyways. 

Smoking has a 30% chance of death by age 60, but for anal sex with gay
men, divide the 50% who do it by the 15-30% who get AIDS, and you get
a 50% chance of death by age 40. 

Surveys in Seattle show about 40% of gay men perform unprotected 
anal sex. In 2001, half had unprotected sex with more than one
partner (even more with just one partner)

who has studied sexual behavior for 24 years, has released a new
study called "Crafting Gay Children" in which she shows that since
heterosexuals outnumber the homosexual population about 44 to 1. And
yet, the incidence of homosexuals molesting children is up to 40
times greater than heterosexuals. 
Taking figures from a 1991 population study by the
 U.S. Department of Commerce, Reisman looks at heterosexual abuse of girls
 by men and homosexual abuse of boys by men.  Taking into account the
 numbers of homosexuals and the numbers of heterosexuals in the population,
 the data shoed that 8 million girls were abused by age 18 by heterosexual
 men, a ratio of 1 victim to 11 adult men. However, 6-8 million boys were
 abused by age 18 by 1-2 million adult homosexuals, a ratio of 3-5 victims
 for every gay adult.

offenders and 10% or more of men were largely homosexual" and even
10% of men is questionable, given a sample where 26% of his subjects

"Risk-Taking Young Keep Life Expectancy Down in EU" Reuters
(07/24/95) According to the European Union's (EU's) first report on
its members' health, young people tend to live "riskier lives" than
in the past.  Although the report noted that people are healthier
than ever before, it cautioned that "current social behavior raises
the question of how far life expectancy can be further extended."
Men between the ages of 15 and 34 account for 45 percent of deaths
from car accidents, 85 percent of all homicides, and constitute a
large number of AIDS deaths.  The incidence of AIDS is greatest in
France, Italy, and Spain--which, combined, are thought to account for
nearly 75 percent of the EU's 120,000 diagnosed cases of AIDS.  The
report concluded that eliminating the causes of "premature mortality"
would be the only way of continuing current trends of increasing life
expectancy.

"It's not clear whether homosexuality even exists in all cultures.
Wood noted, "Taking the evidence at face value, there are a lot of
cultures in which either kind of homosexuality is either absent or so
effectively censored that it has no acknowledged outlet. Homosexuality
is a cultural rarity in sub-Saharan Africa, and there is little
evidence for it in most of aboriginal Polynesia: the Tahitians, the
Maori, the Marquesans and so forth, were licentious but straight.""

"there are about 50,000 same-sex couples in the Netherlands, of whom
less than 10 percent have married so far."  In the last nine months in
2001, 2,400 single-sex couples married.  That number fell to 1,900 in
2002, compared to 85,500 male-female marriages in the Netherlands."

WASHINGTON -- Same-sex partners head households in nearly every county
in the country, show census figures from one of the most comprehensive
counts yet of homosexuals in the United States. Gay or lesbian couple-
led homes totaled close to 600,000 nationwide.
"more than 99 percent of all counties had at least one household
headed by unmarried partners of the same sex, including places in the
rural Midwest and Deep South.  Overall, such living arrangement still
make up a tiny share of American households -- just over one-half of

The figures currently accepted among researchers in human sexuality
(i.e., researchers with no axes to grind) is that the prevalence of
homosexuality in adult men is about 2-4%, and the prevalence among
adult women is perhaps half that.

\priv\94\19\usnsex7.txt 
U.S.NEWS & WORLD REPORT, OCTOBER 17, 1994 Just 2.8% of men and 1.4% of
women identify themselves as homosexual or bisexual. But 9% of men and
over 4% of women have had a sexual experience with someone of the same
sex since puberty. Geography matters: More than 9% of men in the 12
largest cities say they are gay; 3% to 4% in the suburbs and 1% in
rural areas say they are.

\priv\94\19\sexsurv.txt
While only 2.8 percent of the men and 1.4 percent of the women
identified themselves as homosexual or bisexual, the numbers who had
had a homosexual experience, or found the idea appealing, were
somewhat higher.

  doc921\stanfsex.txt - Sex at Stanford survey

1990 Health Needs Assessment at Stanford
(contact Alejandro Martinez)

Percent of Stanford students NOT sexually active

All   Asian  Af-Am  Wh-Am  His-Am
23%   45%    15%    15%    32%


Percent of students who engage in sex with same sex

All   Asian  Af-Am  Wh-Am  His-Am
3.6%  8%     7%     3%     6%


Note - Asian and Af-Am are not statistically significant (<5 persons)
I called up Mr. Martinez to break out these numbers for me because I
was interested in them.

Observations -

Black sex stereotype a myth?
While most high school surveys show blacks to be active more and earlier
than whites, this Stanford survey shows that, at least at this school,
they are no more so than whites. Note that this group of students is
likely from a lower socioeconomic background than the rich white students,
so this is more remarkable since the activity of black teens is often
blamed on their $ status.

Asian virgins
Asians are by far the biggest virgins on campus. Nearly half have  not
"done it" at the time they answered the survey. Out of 20, I only got one
MIT student in a 1990 random phone survey to admit to having had sex. On 
the other hand, that means that over half are NOT virgins, and most likely
well over half are not at the high school level. In Japan, the median age
of first kiss is about 18, let alone first sex.

Asian Gays 
While Mr. Martinez cautions against the number of Asian
gays, I've hear from one fellow at soc.motss that says that Asians
aren't underrepresented among gays at Stanford. This also seemed to
be the case at the gay parade where the Stanford contingent was the
only non-Asian gay group with more than 2-3% Asians (it seemed to be
15% to me, and stanford is 20%-25% Asian undergrads) This seems to go
against my previous assertions that Asians are in general less likely
to be gay or in the gay community, but not really because Stanford is
NOT the general community. There are a high proportion of American
born Asians (about 50% if it's like MIT or UCLA vs. 20% of the 18-yr
old population). I never heard of any Asian gays at MIT, though there
are a few in the Boston college crowd in general, and more than a
couple hanging out with activists at the AARW in Boston.

Stanford Gays
Mr. Martinez says that the survey sometimes comes up with as many as 7%
gays. The 3.6% figure is not inconsistent with national surveys of about
2%, and the probable fact that gays are 50% college grads compared with
25% of most young adults, which would make gays about 4% of college
grads overall. Yet more evidence that 10% of the population is gay is
sheer statistical bunk, despite the fact that everyone assumes it is true.

MIT Random Phone Survey 1989 (by me)

(Stanford)   78%                   consistently out-date the A males.

Note - with these small numbers, there's a lot of room for random
error. But note that even with these numbers, the M/F ratio for
whites and Asians is correct +/- one person, and out-dating rates and
American-born population are consistent with figures from other
schools. Also note that MIT students in no way, shape, or form resemble
normal college students.

GAYS PROMISCUOUS JUST A STEREOTYPE?

The party line is that gays are no more promiscuous than the general population, it is just a stereotype, and it is not the primary reason gays have AIDS. Problem is, every data point in existence puts gays ahead of straight men, and there are no data points which show gays are equal (but since when did data prove anything???)

The fact is that although since the age of AIDS, gays are no long as spectacularly promiscuous as they once were, EVERY statistical comparison shows gays more active than heterosexuals, and most experts agree that the primary reason AIDS spread so quickly within the gay community is because of the innovation of having so many partners combined with jet travel.

One counter is that if gays were allowed institution like marriage, and were not discriminated against, the ratios might not be so skewed (yeah, right).

of 40 experienced no relationships that lasted more than one year. 
- 74% of male homosexuals reported having more than 100 partners during
their lifetime, 
  41% more than 500 partners and 28% more than 1000 partners. 
- 75% reported that more than half their partners were strangers and 65%

is worrisome. An article by Garofalo et al found that gay
lesbian and bisexual high school students reported riskier
sex behaviors than heterosexual students including younger
age at first intercourse and higher number of 
lifetime and recent sexual partners"

"Drug use among the 15-18 year old YMS particpants was much higher
than drug use reported by Seattle high school students in the 1995
Teen Risk Survey. 48% reported ever using marijuana vs. 69% of YMS.
The Garofalo study also reported higher drug and alcohol use among
gay, lesbian and bisexual high school students"

GAYS SEEKS SEX LIKE MEN, BUT NOT BOUND BY COYNESS OF WOMEN
\doc\web\98\04\secrsex.txt Learning Channel: The Science of Sex 1997
Gay men may be feminine in orientation, but seek casual sex like men.
They are even more promiscuous.  Compared to lesbians [or
heterosexual men??], gay men are "wildly" more promiscuous, with
hundreds or even thousands of partners. By comparision, lesbians put
less emphasis on physical appearance, and seek close, committed
relationships.

To find an answer, look at Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny's "CRISIS:
Heterosexual Behavior in the Age of AIDS", 1988.

pp 8-9: The authors surveyed 800 heterosexual adults with no homosexual
        experience for the years 1977 through 1986. Of the 800, 400 are
        monogamous (200 male, 200 female), and 400 (200 male, 200 female)
        reported more than one sexual partner.

        "The average annual number of sex partners in the non-monogamous
         group was 11.5 for women and 9.8 for men."
                   %%%%               %%^
Over the 9 years of this study, which is certainly less than a
"lifetime", then the men averaged 90 partners, the women, 100.
                                  ^^                      ^^^
If we consider an average lifetime sexually active period to be 50
years, then the men have an average number of partners around 500.
(maybe...)

This is comparable to the 452 lifetime partners for gay men.
(I don't think so)

Another survey by Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny, reported on p. 125 of
the same book, allows derivation of the average annual number of sexual
partners for 200 homosexual men living in the northeast, as 22. This gives
some indication of how homosexual men compare to non-married heterosexual
men, who have an average of 10 partners per year.

So the promiscuity rate is more comparable than first thought. Homosexuals
appear to be approximately twice as promiscuous as straight men.

    median lifetime partners = 250 mean = 452
    Masters, Johnson and Kolodny 1992 average gay men in northeast is 22 vs. 10
         for nonmarried sexually active men
    annual sex partners for non-monagamouse 11.5 women 9.8 men, but half
        of men were monogamous so the actual average should be 5.4 / year

Psychotherapist A.W. Richard Sipe, a former lecturer in the

decades studying the issue. Based on case studies of 2,700 priests,
Sipe thinks 30 percent of priests are gay and that half of the 30
percent are sexually active. ... 
A national random survey of priests conducted by The Kansas City Star
found that 15 percent of those responding considered themselves
homosexual and 5 percent identified themselves as bisexual. Estimates
of the percentage of homosexuals in the general population vary, but
those who conduct research on gays and lesbians say it is between 5

Rates of Insertive and Anal Sex by Gay Men and Heterosexuals
Compiled by Arthur Hu

Summary: approximately half of gay men have engaged in anal
intercourse in the past year or 6 months, only 1 in 4 has never tried
anal intercourse. About half of those who engage in anal intercourse,
or one in 4 gay men engages in the most unsafe kind of sex, anal sex
without the use of a condom. 

Only one in 3 or 4 heterosexual men have ever tried anal sex., the U
Chicago 1994 sex study indicates much less than 15% have had anal
intercourse in the past 6 months.

Thus while it is incorrect to associate anal sex with all gay men, it
does to apply to half within the past year, and 3/4 for any time, and
unsafe anal sex occurs at rates of from 1/4 up to nearly half of some
surveys of gay men. Rates studied in John Cameron's much condemned
study is not much different than other surveys.

Gay/Lesbian

Arthur Hu's Gay Stats / Index

This is my place for gay / lesbian / bisexual statistics, many of them not exactly politically correct. Gays are actually similar in many ways to Jews and Asians.

They are about 3% (not 10%) of the population, have over 40% 4-yr degrees, and have a high rate of hate crime victimization. Like Jews, but unlike Asians, they are also very liberal, and vote at rates nearly double that of the general population. My take on gays is that they're a fun bunch of talented people. Some positive stereotypes are that they are educated, talented, intelligent, and are good renters.

However, they do a lot of things that I wouldn't do or recommend to others, not if you want to live beyond 40. Note that I may or may not agree with some of the controversial stuff presented here. It's up to you to make your own judgements.

IF SILENCE=DEATH ANAL SEX=AIDS

One of the identifying behaviors that set gay men apart is anal sex,
which is statistically more likely to kill than smoking, but the PC
approach is that it is fine as long as a condom is used. The more
extreme position is that promiscuity is no worse for gays and every
group is at risk anyways. 

Smoking has a 30% chance of death by age 60, but for anal sex with gay
men, divide the 50% who do it by the 15-30% who get AIDS, and you get
a 50% chance of death by age 40. 

Surveys in Seattle show about 40% of gay men perform unprotected 
anal sex. In 2001, half had unprotected sex with more than one
partner (even more with just one partner)

Ky, June 1, 2001 (LSN.ca) - Dr. Judith Reisman, a social researcher
who has studied sexual behavior for 24 years, has released a new
study called "Crafting Gay Children" in which she shows that since
heterosexuals outnumber the homosexual population about 44 to 1. And
yet, the incidence of homosexuals molesting children is up to 40
times greater than heterosexuals. 
Taking figures from a 1991 population study by the
 U.S. Department of Commerce, Reisman looks at heterosexual abuse of girls
 by men and homosexual abuse of boys by men.  Taking into account the
 numbers of homosexuals and the numbers of heterosexuals in the population,
 the data shoed that 8 million girls were abused by age 18 by heterosexual
 men, a ratio of 1 victim to 11 adult men. However, 6-8 million boys were
 abused by age 18 by 1-2 million adult homosexuals, a ratio of 3-5 victims
 for every gay adult.

"Risk-Taking Young Keep Life Expectancy Down in EU" Reuters
(07/24/95) According to the European Union's (EU's) first report on
its members' health, young people tend to live "riskier lives" than
in the past.  Although the report noted that people are healthier
than ever before, it cautioned that "current social behavior raises
the question of how far life expectancy can be further extended."
Men between the ages of 15 and 34 account for 45 percent of deaths
from car accidents, 85 percent of all homicides, and constitute a
large number of AIDS deaths.  The incidence of AIDS is greatest in
France, Italy, and Spain--which, combined, are thought to account for
nearly 75 percent of the EU's 120,000 diagnosed cases of AIDS.  The
report concluded that eliminating the causes of "premature mortality"

"It's not clear whether homosexuality even exists in all cultures.
Wood noted, "Taking the evidence at face value, there are a lot of
cultures in which either kind of homosexuality is either absent or so
effectively censored that it has no acknowledged outlet. Homosexuality
is a cultural rarity in sub-Saharan Africa, and there is little
evidence for it in most of aboriginal Polynesia: the Tahitians, the
Maori, the Marquesans and so forth, were licentious but straight.""

"there are about 50,000 same-sex couples in the Netherlands, of whom
less than 10 percent have married so far."  In the last nine months in
2001, 2,400 single-sex couples married.  That number fell to 1,900 in
2002, compared to 85,500 male-female marriages in the Netherlands."

- Homosexual men are not necessarily pedophiles, but a disproportionate
number of male homosexuals enjoy sex with young teens. 
- Even though 2% of male adults are homosexual, 35% of pedophiles are
homosexual. 
- 80% of pedophilic victims are boys who are molested by adult males.

  doc921\stanfsex.txt - Sex at Stanford survey

1990 Health Needs Assessment at Stanford
(contact Alejandro Martinez)

Percent of Stanford students NOT sexually active

All   Asian  Af-Am  Wh-Am  His-Am
23%   45%    15%    15%    32%


Percent of students who engage in sex with same sex

All   Asian  Af-Am  Wh-Am  His-Am
3.6%  8%     7%     3%     6%


Note - Asian and Af-Am are not statistically significant (<5 persons)
I called up Mr. Martinez to break out these numbers for me because I
was interested in them.

Observations -

Black sex stereotype a myth?
While most high school surveys show blacks to be active more and earlier
than whites, this Stanford survey shows that, at least at this school,
they are no more so than whites. Note that this group of students is
likely from a lower socioeconomic background than the rich white students,
so this is more remarkable since the activity of black teens is often
blamed on their $ status.

Asian virgins
Asians are by far the biggest virgins on campus. Nearly half have  not
"done it" at the time they answered the survey. Out of 20, I only got one
MIT student in a 1990 random phone survey to admit to having had sex. On 
the other hand, that means that over half are NOT virgins, and most likely
well over half are not at the high school level. In Japan, the median age
of first kiss is about 18, let alone first sex.

Asian Gays 
While Mr. Martinez cautions against the number of Asian
gays, I've hear from one fellow at soc.motss that says that Asians
aren't underrepresented among gays at Stanford. This also seemed to
be the case at the gay parade where the Stanford contingent was the
only non-Asian gay group with more than 2-3% Asians (it seemed to be
15% to me, and stanford is 20%-25% Asian undergrads) This seems to go
against my previous assertions that Asians are in general less likely
to be gay or in the gay community, but not really because Stanford is
NOT the general community. There are a high proportion of American
born Asians (about 50% if it's like MIT or UCLA vs. 20% of the 18-yr
old population). I never heard of any Asian gays at MIT, though there
are a few in the Boston college crowd in general, and more than a
couple hanging out with activists at the AARW in Boston.

Stanford Gays
Mr. Martinez says that the survey sometimes comes up with as many as 7%
gays. The 3.6% figure is not inconsistent with national surveys of about
2%, and the probable fact that gays are 50% college grads compared with
25% of most young adults, which would make gays about 4% of college
grads overall. Yet more evidence that 10% of the population is gay is
sheer statistical bunk, despite the fact that everyone assumes it is true.

MIT Random Phone Survey 1989 (by me)
18 non-Asians, 11 men, 7 women
19 Asians, 10 men, 9 women

NonAsians    All   Male  Female

  (or maybe it's just MIT women??? SLAP!)

No Answer    58%   50%   67%

Smoke         5%   10%    0%
Drink        21%   30%   14% <- 1/2 white drinking rate
SportsActive 89%  100%   78% <- So much for wimp stereotype
AmBorn       50%   44%   58% <- Men more likely to be foreign!
Discriminated against at MIT
              0%    0%    0% <- If there's discrimination, it's news to them
Mean age of immigration
             10.8
Date out of race (in)
             71%   67(33)75(25) <- Pretty close. Harva and Stanf drawn from
(Harvard)    80%   70(30)90(10)    campus surveys in late 80s. !@#$ women
(Stanford)   78%                   consistently out-date the A males.

Note - with these small numbers, there's a lot of room for random
error. But note that even with these numbers, the M/F ratio for
whites and Asians is correct +/- one person, and out-dating rates and
American-born population are consistent with figures from other
schools. Also note that MIT students in no way, shape, or form resemble
normal college students.

GAYS PROMISCUOUS JUST A STEREOTYPE?

The party line is that gays are no more promiscuous than the general population, it is just a stereotype, and it is not the primary reason gays have AIDS. Problem is, every data point in existence puts gays ahead of straight men, and there are no data points which show gays are equal (but since when did data prove anything???)

The fact is that although since the age of AIDS, gays are no long as spectacularly promiscuous as they once were, EVERY statistical comparison shows gays more active than heterosexuals, and most experts agree that the primary reason AIDS spread so quickly within the gay community is because of the innovation of having so many partners combined with jet travel.

One counter is that if gays were allowed institution like marriage, and were not discriminated against, the ratios might not be so skewed (yeah, right).

following: 
- 8% of men and 7% of women had relationships lasting more than 3 years.
- 50% of gay males over the age of 30 and 75% of gay males over the age
of 40 experienced no relationships that lasted more than one year. 
- 74% of male homosexuals reported having more than 100 partners during
their lifetime, 
  41% more than 500 partners and 28% more than 1000 partners. 
- 75% reported that more than half their partners were strangers and 65%
reported that they had sex with more than half their partners only once.

They are even more promiscuous.  Compared to lesbians [or

hundreds or even thousands of partners. By comparision, lesbians put
less emphasis on physical appearance, and seek close, committed
relationships.

To find an answer, look at Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny's "CRISIS:
Heterosexual Behavior in the Age of AIDS", 1988.

pp 8-9: The authors surveyed 800 heterosexual adults with no homosexual
        experience for the years 1977 through 1986. Of the 800, 400 are
        monogamous (200 male, 200 female), and 400 (200 male, 200 female)
        reported more than one sexual partner.

        "The average annual number of sex partners in the non-monogamous
         group was 11.5 for women and 9.8 for men."
                   %%%%               %%^
Over the 9 years of this study, which is certainly less than a
"lifetime", then the men averaged 90 partners, the women, 100.
                                  ^^                      ^^^
If we consider an average lifetime sexually active period to be 50
years, then the men have an average number of partners around 500.
(maybe...)

This is comparable to the 452 lifetime partners for gay men.
(I don't think so)

Another survey by Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny, reported on p. 125 of
the same book, allows derivation of the average annual number of sexual
partners for 200 homosexual men living in the northeast, as 22. This gives
some indication of how homosexual men compare to non-married heterosexual
men, who have an average of 10 partners per year.

So the promiscuity rate is more comparable than first thought. Homosexuals
appear to be approximately twice as promiscuous as straight men.

    median lifetime partners = 250 mean = 452
    Masters, Johnson and Kolodny 1992 average gay men in northeast is 22 vs. 10
         for nonmarried sexually active men
    annual sex partners for non-monagamouse 11.5 women 9.8 men, but half
        of men were monogamous so the actual average should be 5.4 / year

Psychotherapist A.W. Richard Sipe, a former lecturer in the

Sipe thinks 30 percent of priests are gay and that half of the 30

A national random survey of priests conducted by The Kansas City Star
found that 15 percent of those responding considered themselves
homosexual and 5 percent identified themselves as bisexual. Estimates

those who conduct research on gays and lesbians say it is between 5

Rates of Insertive and Anal Sex by Gay Men and Heterosexuals
Compiled by Arthur Hu

Summary: approximately half of gay men have engaged in anal
intercourse in the past year or 6 months, only 1 in 4 has never tried
anal intercourse. About half of those who engage in anal intercourse,
or one in 4 gay men engages in the most unsafe kind of sex, anal sex
without the use of a condom. 

Only one in 3 or 4 heterosexual men have ever tried anal sex., the U
Chicago 1994 sex study indicates much less than 15% have had anal
intercourse in the past 6 months.

Thus while it is incorrect to associate anal sex with all gay men, it
does to apply to half within the past year, and 3/4 for any time, and
unsafe anal sex occurs at rates of from 1/4 up to nearly half of some
surveys of gay men. Rates studied in John Cameron's much condemned
study is not much different than other surveys.

Clinton Stand Against Gay Marriage Not Costing Him in Rare Poll of
Gays By HOWARD GOLDBERG "While the gay sample was younger, more
urban, more liberal and more Democratic than the population at large,
Lake said, the gay respondents were typical in their racial makeup,
income and social concerns."

NewsHound@sjmercury.com (NewsHound) Unusual poll shows gays not so
different BY HOWARD GOLDBERG Associated Press. Poll by Human Rights
Campaign in New York City

If they are the same, why is it that only 50% have long term
relationships which could be called marriage, and only 22% have
children living in homes. Clinton leads by 74 to 13, much more
liberal than the general population where Dole only lags by 10-15
points over the summer

NEW YORK -- Gay Americans' concerns mirror those of the population at large, 
with crime and drugs the biggest personal worry, followed by economic issues, 
health care and education, a poll sponsored by a gay rights group found.

The Case for Publicly Funded Transsexual Surgery
Ray Blanchard, Ph.D
 1. Transsexualism is recognized as a psychiatric disorder by the American
Psychiatric Association and by the World Health Organization.
 2. Sex reassignment surgery is the treatment of last resort for
transsexuals who cannot achieve peace of mind in their original gender
role.
 3. There is ample evidence that sex reassignment improves transsexuals'
psychosocial adjustment, in particular, their mood and morale.
 4. The overwhelming majority of patients express satisfaction at their
decision to undergo sex reassignment.
