Semiannual DL poll: Who are we?

What's our current composition? Are we really more straight than gay these days? Let's find out:

by Anonymousreply 6209/21/2014

We will end up being majority gay male, with a significant straight female minority. As always...

by Anonymousreply 106/22/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 306/22/2013

Right now straight women are 40%, gay men are 28%.

by Anonymousreply 406/22/2013

Looks like the straight women are in the lead. Does that account for a lot of the homophobia spewed here on a regular basis?

by Anonymousreply 506/22/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 806/22/2013

It's just as DataLoungers are always saying-- there ARE no straight men!

by Anonymousreply 906/22/2013

Oh shit we're losing!!!!!! :0

by Anonymousreply 1006/22/2013

I think so, R10... I'm getting nervous now.

by Anonymousreply 1106/22/2013

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

I know a straight guy who hangs out at the local gay bar.

by Anonymousreply 1506/22/2013

This is depressing. Women are not only invading gay bars; they are also invading datalounge.

by Anonymousreply 1606/22/2013

This is horrible. I never had a problem with the straight women here before, but now... Now we've lost our space.

by Anonymousreply 1706/22/2013


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?

by Anonymousreply 1806/22/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1906/22/2013

R18, sounds like a personal problem.

by Anonymousreply 2006/22/2013

R18, Google has been blocking porn for months. How have you not noticed for now? Even with SafeSearch deactivated it's difficult to find.

by Anonymousreply 2106/22/2013

I have no idea R18...

Nope! Dudetube and gayforIt are working just fine for me.

by Anonymousreply 2206/22/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2406/22/2013

Somebody is trying to fake the poll by posting straight woman over and over and delete cookies.

by Anonymousreply 2506/22/2013

It is not necessarily a straight woman but a freeper.

Notice how there is not one straight man on this poll. Not one.

by Anonymousreply 2606/22/2013

That's what I was thinking, R25 - and I'm a hetero woman, but I haven't voted.

by Anonymousreply 2706/22/2013

A cockfiend accidentally clicked on the 'straight male' category. We will count him as one of ours.

by Anonymousreply 2806/23/2013

Interesting that the only unrepresented category so far is transwoman.

by Anonymousreply 2906/23/2013

What is genderqueer?

by Anonymousreply 3006/23/2013

As if the losers that troll and post their dreck here will be honest. already.

by Anonymousreply 3106/23/2013

[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.[1] 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.[2][3]

both man and woman (bigender, trigender, pangender);

neither man nor woman (nongendered, genderless, agender);

moving between genders (genderfluid);[4]

third gender or other-gendered; includes those who do not place a name to their gender;[5]

Thanks r32 .

The gay boys only exist to entertain us in ways that our straight boys can not!

I now understand the the rabid reactions to famous women who fuck married men.

I just hope straight women aren't giving advice on gay relationship threads.

by Anonymousreply 3606/23/2013

Full disclosure: I was a lesbian for last month's semiannual DL poll.

by Anonymousreply 3706/23/2013

[I just hope straight women aren't giving advice on gay relationship threads.]

Why? I've gotten some good relationship advice from them.

by Anonymousreply 3806/23/2013

Women are more likely to answer quizzes than are men.

by Anonymousreply 3906/23/2013

This shouldn't be much of a suprise. We did this poll less than a year ago and straight women comprised about 33% of posters. I'd imagine it

by Anonymousreply 4006/23/2013

"I just hope straight women aren't giving advice on gay relationship threads."

Agreed. They have different kinds of relationships from us (meet in different venues, have different expectations, etc.).

by Anonymousreply 4106/23/2013

Going back to the Google problem, there are other search engines. In the olden days, I liked Altavista and still see all the un/asked for porny stuff on that.

There is here. It just isn't used much anymore.

What specific mental illness does r2 have?

by Anonymousreply 4406/23/2013

"6.25%" straight men?

Death to straight men.

by Anonymousreply 4506/23/2013

Here's a pie chart of the results to date.

by Anonymousreply 4606/25/2013

Sorry, I think this chart will be better.

by Anonymousreply 4706/25/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4806/25/2013

Now I know where all of the misogyny is coming from lately, women can be so hateful to each other.

by Anonymousreply 4906/25/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5006/25/2013

Something tells me the "straight" men on Datalounge have a very liberal definition of what does not constitute gay sex.

by Anonymousreply 5106/25/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5206/25/2013

R52 forgot "We like sports."

by Anonymousreply 5306/25/2013

As long as those 'straight' men continue to hide in the shadows, we'll all be happy... Poetic justice, of course.

by Anonymousreply 5406/25/2013

only 36% of DLers are gay males


by Anonymousreply 5507/10/2013

Pump so people remember the real poll

by Anonymousreply 5610/19/2013

We're up to 37% now.

by Anonymousreply 5710/23/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5810/23/2013

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, the danger to becoming ordinary is there. DL needs to keep its edge.

Freeper trolls are not "edginess."

by Anonymousreply 5910/23/2013

we need a new 2014 poll, if a paying subscriber would be willing to oblige

by Anonymousreply 6009/21/2014

Damn, this was an old poll: I probably voted twice.
