25% are gay, lesbian, or transgender?

I read this somewhere. I have nothing against anyone, but I feel that those numbers are blown out of proportion?

    huh! :)
    is that at NYU or just in general?

    ......either way, really, isn't surprising. It shows that our culture is more accepting--people don't have to hide their real selves anymore :)

    I like that. I was accepted into NYU. I'm a gay guy. Hmm... interesting. I never thought those numbers would be that high. I guess I agree with jaimelajolie. Cool ;) !!

    I'm not too surprised at that stat. GLBT people tend to migrate to cities where people are more liberal/tolerant, and that definitely describes NYC.

    Hahah what are we nomads now? :D Or are we birds during seasonal changes? ;)

    well do you ride camels or fly in a v formation?

    ;)

    Sorry, APDoolittle. Perhaps I was applying my own logic as a bisexual from Texas a little too broadly. It made sense in my head. :)
  • APDoolittleAPDoolittle Registered User Posts: 1,275 Senior Member
    Aww it's ok, I know what you meant. I wasn't mad or anything. Just took the opportunity to crack a quick joke. Ampersand, are you a guy or a girl? For some reason, [and I know it was in Wyoming] but Texas brings a sort of Brokeback Mountain-ish image to mind.

    Haha, and to answer your question, scrapnel: I ride cowboys and soar freely in the sky at the same time. I love being gay! :)

    I'm a girl, but I do have family members who own a cattle ranch. ;)

    Cool :D Alright, I'm outie. That is, out for tonight. *yawn* Not out of the closet... unfortunately. All in good time...

    Thanks for being accepting folks! I have an interview w/ NBC at my high school tomorrow! Wish me luck :)
  • jaimelajoliejaimelajolie Registered User Posts: 623 Member
    !!! Good luck! :) you'll be great. you're likeable. :)
  • ampersandampersand Registered User Posts: 588 Member
    Wow, that's amazing. Good luck!
  • APDoolittleAPDoolittle Registered User Posts: 1,275 Senior Member
    Hey thanks both of you! Actually NBC bailed today. Apparently Donald Trump's wife giving birth is more important than interviewing lil ol' me and my peers. Haha! Who am I kidding? Of course it is! But it was postponed. So the interview will be soon. But aww, thanks for the compliments. I'll let ya know how it goes. Bye :)

    Hey, hey, hey. What's wrong w/ 25%? Read the rest of the posts and maybe make it a late new year's resolution to be less narrow-minded this year.

    Peace ;)
