What's our current composition? Are we really more straight than gay these days? Let's find out:
We will end up being majority gay male, with a significant straight female minority. As always...
It irritates me that so many of you refuse to refer to yourselves as men. It's always male, yet you never use female instead of woman.
What crawled up R2's butt?
Right now straight women are 40%, gay men are 28%.
Looks like the straight women are in the lead. Does that account for a lot of the homophobia spewed here on a regular basis?
It's also Saturday night, R4. Most of the gay men are out right now.
mysangist poll does not fully sample men.
[quote]mysangist poll does not fully sample men.
There is no such word as "mysangist." Do you mean "misandrist," someone who hates men?
And what categories would you have added to more fully sample men? What other categories of men ARE there?
It's just as DataLoungers are always saying-- there ARE no straight men!
It's very interesting that we are losing...Actually I'm more surprised that straight guys account for zero percent. I can't believe that...
OR once they come to DL those so called "straight" guys feel a bit uninhabited an can identify as their true nature... you know a little "Bi" instead of just 100% straight.
Actually Bi's are accounting for 20-21% of the vote! WOW :O
Why are you surprised by the strong bi presence R12?
I know a straight guy who hangs out at the local gay bar.
This is depressing. Women are not only invading gay bars; they are also invading datalounge.
This is horrible. I never had a problem with the straight women here before, but now... Now we've lost our space.
something is wrong with my google. No porn at all comes up when I search ... the usual key words... or even studio names. Nothing at all. It is like someone completely blockeed all porn on the net. anyone else notice this?
As somebody said before, keep in mind that it's Saturday night and a full moon. And Pride month. There are many precincts not reporting.
R18, sounds like a personal problem.
R18, Google has been blocking porn for months. How have you not noticed for now? Even with SafeSearch deactivated it's difficult to find.
I have no idea R18...
Nope! Dudetube and gayforIt are working just fine for me.
We are the Borg. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.
R18, if you're going to keep putting that shit in every thread, at least check the spelling, you fuck.
Somebody is trying to fake the poll by posting straight woman over and over and delete cookies.
It is not necessarily a straight woman but a freeper.
Notice how there is not one straight man on this poll. Not one.
That's what I was thinking, R25 - and I'm a hetero woman, but I haven't voted.
A cockfiend accidentally clicked on the 'straight male' category. We will count him as one of ours.
Interesting that the only unrepresented category so far is transwoman.
What is genderqueer?
As if the losers that troll and post their dreck here will be honest. already.
[quote]What is genderqueer?
Genderqueer (GQ; alternatively non-binary) is a catch-all category for gender identities other than man and woman, thus outside of the gender binary and cisnormativity. People who identify as genderqueer may think of themselves as one or more of the following:
having an overlap of, or blurred lines between, gender identity and sexual and romantic orientation.
both man and woman (bigender, trigender, pangender);
neither man nor woman (nongendered, genderless, agender);
moving between genders (genderfluid);
third gender or other-gendered; includes those who do not place a name to their gender;
So this means about 44% of us are men, and 56% of us are women.
I'm surprised, frankly. I suppose I shouldn't be, but I am.
Now I know where all of the misogyny is coming from lately, women can be so hateful to each other.
Interestingly enough one of the biggest changes between the poll a year ago and this one is the straight male percentage. It has like doubled, still relatively small but the it is the biggest growth.
Something tells me the "straight" men on Datalounge have a very liberal definition of what does not constitute gay sex.
DL straight = goy, bro, bra, et al (straight until they want to lick your dick).
A bunch of cocksucking pussies with backwards baseball caps and receding hairlines.
R52 forgot "We like sports."
As long as those 'straight' men continue to hide in the shadows, we'll all be happy... Poetic justice, of course.
only 36% of DLers are gay males
Pump so people remember the real poll
We're up to 37% now.
It sucks that there are so many straight women on here, really. I don't have anything against women, it's the straightness that I don't really care for. I'd be happier if there were more lesbians. It's especially sad that straight women outnumber lesbians.
DL is becoming more mainstream by the day. Its very popularity is a two-edge sword---the more people read it, the more its reader-created content resembles the Bell-shaped Curve. While it's still a lot more interesting than Salon.com, the danger to becoming ordinary is there. DL needs to keep its edge.
Freeper trolls are not "edginess."
we need a new 2014 poll, if a paying subscriber would be willing to oblige
Damn, this was an old poll: I probably voted twice.
