Kinsey's mythical 10%

From WorldNetDaily...

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics finds there are more Americans who think of themselves as something other than homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual than think of themselves as "gay."

While just 2.3 percent of men said they think of themselves as homosexual, 3.9 percent answered "something else." Of the men surveyed, 1.8 percent said they thought of themselves as bisexual and 1.8 percent did not answer the question.

Homosexual activists have often claimed 10 percent of the population is homosexual, but that figure has long been discredited. The 10 percent number is based on fraudulent research done by Indiana University zoologist Dr. Alfred Kinsey in the mid-20th century. More recent research puts the number between 1 and 3 percent, which is consistent with the CDC numbers.

Gleaned from the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, the data are based on 12,571 in-person interviews with men and women 15-44 years of age.

The 10% number came from Kinsey's flawed research, where he interviewed prisoners, rather than the public-at-large, to get an idea of how many engage in homosexual sex. It was and still is accepted by homosexual activists and Liberals ever since. The first argument used to dispute those numbers is the political clout homosexuals have, yet, that in itself is something they really don't want the general public to be aware of. Everyone has the right to vote and to be politically active, but when a specific group is discovered to have political power well above the same quantity of people in the general populace, people naturally wonder why and what they are doing with it. It also doesn't mesh well with the complaint that homosexuals are an oppressed minority if they possess political (not to mention economic) power in a surprisingly higher abundance than the average person.

I'd love to comment on this one (beacause you are actually partly right again), but the st*pid obscenity filter (?) doesn't let me.. even though I used no profanity at all. Odd.
