  1. It is not too late to change this and it needs to be challenged.

    I don’t know whether a question about sexual orientation is relevant as it will only capture how many people are openly gay. I expect there are just as many closet cases who will lie about their orientation making the results inaccurate.

    I am all for open question
    the general public need to know that gays are big numbers
    and we weight in the economy and life of the nation
    as hole citizens not half citizens.

  4. I don’t believe that only 6% of the adult population are gay, Ithink it’s much higher than that, but how they could get more accurate stats is beyond me because I also think people would lie, Sally :)
