There was an issue that came up here in London, Ontario that I didn't agree with and I'm a gonna tell ya why! Someone wanted to promote Gay Pride by painting a bunch of crosswalks in the city a nice rainbow colour.
Now I'm not homophobic, or a gay basher, and I have gay friends, but I do resent having the gay agenda shoved in my face at every opportunity ......, and there are lots of people who agree with me!
(Now deep down I kept wondering just what sort of affect all this gay promotion is having on the population ....., and when I read THIS article all the pieces began to fall in place.)
MAYBE THERE IS A SECRET GAY AGENDA AFTER ALL! [sic]
A rise in bisexuality is driving a sharp increase in same-sex experiences in the United States, according to a new study – and Americans are increasingly open to the idea.(To show you how innocence we were back in the sixties, my parents had no idea that Liberace was "GAY" ......, they just thought he was "different!"
Using data from the General Social Survey (GSS), a nationally representative survey of U.S. adults conducted since 1972 including a total of 33,728 participants, a team of social scientists found that the percentage of men reporting male sexual partners had nearly doubled from 1990 to 2014, and the percentage of women reporting same-sex experiences had more than doubled during the same period.
Their study, published Wednesday in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, also shows a dramatic increase in the percentage of Americans who find these sexual interactions acceptable.
“The acceptance of gays and lesbians has really been the civil rights issue of the last few decades,” said study co-author Jean Twenge, professor of psychology at San Diego State University and author of the book “Generation Me.” Twenge, who studies the way social behaviour changes over time, considers the acceptance of LGBTQ individuals to be the best example of such a change in recent history. “It’s been a social change that’s happened relatively quickly,” she said.
Between 1973 and 1990, the percentage of adults who believed “sexual relations between two adults of the same sex [was] not wrong at all” only rose from 11 per cent to 13 per cent. But by 2014, 49 per cent of all adults and 63 per cent of millennials expressed tolerance of these relationships.
That increase in tolerance likely helped drive an increase in sexual behaviours (and willingness to report them). The percentage of men who have had sex with at least one man increased from 4.5 per cent (The accepted upper limit of the LGTB community in the general population) to 8.2 per cent between 1990 and 2014. Women reporting at least one female sexual partner increased from 3.6 per cent to 8.7 per cent of the population during the same period.
But Twenge and her colleagues say that bisexual behaviour drove this change: The percentage of survey respondents who had all same-sex partners didn’t increase significantly during that time, but the percentage of adults with both male and female partners increased from 3.1 per cent to 7.7 per cent.
“That’s what I found surprising,” Twenge told The Post. “When we looked more closely at the change, it was mostly due to people having sex with partners of both genders.”
After looking into the matter we have concluded that this should not make any difference to the average person ....., as long as they don't make any sudden moves, or drastic change in direction!
Boxing great Muhammad Ali is hospitalized in the Phoenix area with what two people familiar with his condition say may be a serious respiratory illness complicated by his Parkinson's! (Folks I claimed many years ago that I would fight Ali in a three round match if someone would pay me a million bucks, but at the time I had no takers!
Well I would like to go on the record today as saying that if they could somehow get him out of his hospital bed my offer still stands!
