If we check recent statistics
7.1% of the USA is LGBTQ, compared to 5.6% the previous this
This included 5.4% of men, and 9.5% of women
In Europe, the statistics are similar. With Germany reporting 8.4% of women, and 6.4% of men. In the Netherlands, 10.3% of women, and 2.5% of men reported being LGBTQ. This Is Universal throughout Europe, with larger amounts of women being LGBTQ.
If we look at things such as same sex experiences, and attraction
20.8% of women, and 7.3% of men have had a sexual encounter with the same gender
23.2% of women, and 9.4% of men report having attractions to their own gender.
These are all of course quite higher than statistics from only a few years back.
Is this due to the acceptance, and ease of openness of the LGBTQ community, or is there a level of social and cultural pressure in being LGBTQ?
This seems universal for most countries
1. In nearly every major survey internationally, the size of the LGBTQ community has grown in every nation
2. In nearly every major survey internationally, the amount of women reporting same sex preferences is much higher than it is for men.
This seems to be true in nearly every nation that has put out large scale surveys.
It is a minority. Making something out of nothing. 5% of 100%... ludicrous
