    If you want something to be sorry about, it should be that you have made this an open poll.

    So your opening statement is patently false.

    FAIL.

    You'll get more gay, bi or trans voting in this poll, because they're different (cuz most peeps are straight), so they feel they should say that they're different. But straight people... Well, why would they bother? I mean, tons of people are straight.

    What I'm saying is that the ratio of straight/gay/bi/trans in this poll will be diff than the actual ratio IRL.

    It will probably end up like this. The US average is about 5%, should we experience numbers higher than this it could mean two things:

    -There are much more LGBT members proportionally than in the rest of the US;
    -What you said was true and straight people didn't vote (most likely).

    Yeah. I'm straight and I couldn't be bothered voting. But if I were, say, bi, I most definitely would.

    This isn't a US-only site though

    You're right about this, but there seems to be a fair proportion of US members. Also, I couldn't find detailed statistics for other countries on Wikipedia :p

    Haha, fair enough then. I'm gonna predict straight people win this one by a mile (not that it's a contest but you know what I mean) :)

    Plus there is a high correlation between being straight and being apathetic. (unsubstantiated fake fact)

    You've also left out quite a few options...

    Poll is invalid if I can't tell who the single women are. ;)

    If Bi and Transexual are options then why not also include Asexual?

    Well, even if you include Asexual, there are lots more, and quite rare, sexualities. The poll should just be straight, gay/lez and bi. That'd keep it simple (plus most people fall into one of those three sexes).

    Asexual is not rare. A lot of people give up on sexuality at some point in their life and I count them as asexuals. Also transexual is just another variation of gay. You can pretend that you are a woman by dressing the part and getting the surgery but if you were born with a penis and you are attracted to men then you are gay. Distinguishing between the two is like saying that a masseur who gives you a happy ending is not in the sex industry.

    That's just a gay guy in denial.

    Asexual means you're not attracted to either sex, not that you don't have sex.

    Why do you think people give up on sex? If you used to sleep with women and women no longer do it for you and you are still not interested in men then you are not attracted to either, hence the asexual label.

    Yeah, well, I guess most people get to a point in their lives when they've 'gotten over' sex. That they no longer have the drive.

    Well, you vote on the poll was only half surprising ;)

    You may have gotten a better result from a private poll.


    And FYI - a person's gender identity has little to do with their sexual preferences. That's also quite a personal topic for some and I'm not totally sure why it's part of the poll, especially being a public poll.

    I was born male. I grew up male. I plan to stay male. I've liked females ever since I was slapped by Lord Puberty.

    I believe I would be wasting my time doing that.

    That's not what "he" was after. Just mining personal data.

    Sankersizzle is transgendered? :confused:



    Lol, this poll is definitely not correct. People can (And most likely did) vote for some other category, just because.


    And most people won't bother voting unless they were of the non-straight categories.
