Since when are homosexuals a minority? Are you kidding me? Mentally disturbed maybe, but NOT a minority.

I'm not a spambot
You think that more than 50% of people are homosexual? Really?

"There are too many minoritieeeess, at my water park!"

Double post sorry

So then.....at least 50% of the population of the world AREN'T heterosexual? You're an idiot.
2/7/2010 11:32:45 AM
I'm pretty sure 5% or so of the population qualifies as "a minority"...
2/7/2010 11:34:14 AM
So this Freeper doesn't even understand the meaning of the word "minority", that's fricking hilarious!

This reminds me of a comedian, I don't recall his name, but he said if a white man went to Africa he'd say 'Oh dear, look at all these minorities'

This is a good example of how out of touch these people are with anyone except their own narrow circle of friends and what they hear on Fox News.

Since when are Christians a minority? Are you kidding me? Mentally disturbed maybe, but NOT a minority.
It seems to work a little better this way...

Any group which comprises less than 50% of the total population in question is a minority. Like genius Freepers.

Minorities don't work that way.

Hey, cut her a break. Maybe she thinking, she can't get laid and it must be because all the dudes she hit on are queer. Cos it ain't that she dumb or nothing.

Technically the word minority doesn’t necessarily mean that the group of people make up less then 50% of the population. It can also mean that those people are disadvantaged in some way (usually but not always because there are not that many of them). But some can and do make the argument that women are a minority even though there are more women then men.

You win the "Unclear on the Concept" award.

Most people are not gay, therefore gays are a minority, you dumbass.
2/7/2010 12:20:13 PM
Double post. She still not be getting any.

On top of not understanding what the word "minority" means, I think this guy just implied that the majority of the population is mentally ill (again, we're in the minority).

Homosexuality isn't in the dsmIV. So they likely aren't mentally disturbed. Also they are a minority since there are more straights. That doesn't mean they shouldn't have the same rights we do. They should but they shouldn't have had to fight for them

Do you even know what the word "minority" means? It's a completely neutral word. Regardless of your feelings about homosexuals, we're obviously not the majority.
2/7/2010 1:30:23 PM
So, they are the majority?
2/7/2010 1:40:53 PM
Soo... most of the population is gay? That's news to me.
2/7/2010 1:44:05 PM
Approximately 10% (or 10 out of 100 people) of the population is homosexual. Therefore 90% (90 out of 100 people) of the population is NOT homosexual.
Now, I'm not what you'd call a math genius but I do know that 10<90.

If you're going to use polysyllabic words you have to use them CORRECTLY or we're all going to laugh at you. (We may even point AND laugh).

Freepers are disadvantaged enough anyway, so I'm going to cut her some slack and assume it's just a malapropism.
I just wonder what word she thinks she's using?
2/7/2010 2:40:45 PM
The irony of a Freeper calling someone else mentally disturbed is delicious. Homosexuality stopped being classified as mental disorder over thirty-five years ago. Try to keep up.
Yes, homosexuals are a minority since heterosexuals outnumber them by about nineteen to one.
Still feel threatened by them, Desdemona? Get over it.
