Party of Science: Young People, When Polled, Estimate The Number of Gay People In Society at... 30%

I heard this "three in ten" claim one time, and I laughed at it. Even one-in-ten is too high by a factor of 3-5.

But there's our very educated Millennials for ya!

By the way, I keep hearing the Millennials are "very educated." And they don't mean that ironically.

They mean, of course, that they go to college at higher rates than previous generations, and then waste more time pursuing make-work masters in nonproductive fields.

But seriously: Are they even close to "very educated"?

I know people who employ Millennials.

See if you can guess their take on Millennials' group education level and group intelligence.

And I have to note, as usual, I know some Millennials, and they're bright. And, as I say, they will rule the world in time, for they have nothing but morons between them and the throne.

As Herman Mankiewicz wrote to his writer friend in 1925, imploring him to come to Hollywood:

"Millions are to be made out here, and your only competition is idiots."

He added a whisper:

"Don't let this get around."

Anyway, the fact that America, as a whole, is stupider than it's ever been doesn't mean there aren't very bright Americans, and the fact that the Millennials are a Generation of Imbeciles doesn't change the fact that there are smart Millennials too.

And by the way, the country as a whole -- young people, middle-aged, and old folks too -- peg the number at 25%.

We're not a smart people.

I also see that women, as a whole, also estimated the figure at 30%.

Well... what can we say about that that won't cause a Shaming Crisis?

Um.... it is true that women dabble more with light-to-moderate homosexual acts (at least when younger), and... well I guess it is now de rigeur for every upwardly mobile urban white woman to have her Gay Best Friend.

So maybe that inflates their estimate.

I guess they don't realize that one gay dude they think is their Gay Best Friend is performing Gay Best Friend duties for a network of like eight women.

That poor man.
