Quote# 49956

(In the middle of a list of BS statistics)

A homosexual publication printed the following statistics:

• 24 percent of homosexual men had more than 100 partners.

• 43 percent of homosexual men had more than 500 partners.

• 28 percent of homosexual men had more than 1,000 partners.

So only 5% of homosexual men had 100 or less partners? I call bullshit.

Oh and

Um, I'm not a statistician, but shouldn't it be mathematically impossible for only 24 percent to fall into the "100 or more category", then have 43 percent fall into the "500 or more" category? Phrased differently, this could be a histogram or something, but still...

Doctor Whom

98.3% of statistics on teh interwebs were made up on the spot. A publication (which I refuse to name) printed it, so it must be true.

I notice you wont give the name of this 'homosexual publication' your getting these from, is it on the magazine rack right above a 'christian publication' claiming 43% of Christians are child molesters?

10/17/2008 9:34:29 PM


I'm guessing you meant 43% of Catholics, wackadoodle.

Ye gods, I know how these people THINK! I'm spending way too much time on this site.

A convincing argument for homosexuality!

I may have to re-consider this 'straight' thing!

10/17/2008 9:43:43 PM


.... riiiight.....

10/17/2008 10:04:33 PM


And to get the full 5 fundie marks read the rest of the post. It is jaw-dropping.

Thinking Allowed

It's also proven that 95% of those who post on RR are paranoid.

*sighs* Mathamatics doesn't work that way!

IF 43% of homosexual men had more than 500 partners (which is bullshit, but let's treat the statistics as proper maths just for a moment), then that 43% would INCLUDE the 24% from the 'homosexual men had more than 100 partners' listed before that. Okay?

Now, you simply CAN'T then say that '28% of homosexuals have had more than 1000 partners', because 28% is LESS than 43%. The number would HAVE to be more than 48%, because you'd need to include the 48% in the same way that you included the 24% in the previous example.

For a forum that also quipped "Readers/Posters in this forum are MUCH better educated on the facts than your average person.", you seem to have a bit of a trouble grasping that THIS IS NOT HOW PERCENTAGES WORK!!

I see a big statistical fail.

10/17/2008 10:17:38 PM

Needless to say this is bullshit ...

... but even if it isn't. So what? None of your business even so.

10/17/2008 10:18:11 PM


Super stats fail, with a side of [citation_needed].

10/17/2008 10:21:19 PM

Care to provide some sources for those claims?

10/17/2008 10:24:25 PM

Even the stupid bigots that inhabit Rapture Ready have to realize that these statistics are contradictory. What am I saying? These are the hypocrites that worship an idea not found in the Bible and consistently violate the 9th commandment for their political agenda. They really are a disgrace to Christianity.

I know a homosexual man who hasn't had any partners, but he's an awful person to be around.

10/17/2008 10:52:42 PM


sex isn't the measure of relationships - most men straight or gay will say that sex and love aren't the same.


sex is important to fundies as the reason they love

10/17/2008 11:02:26 PM



eve anne gelical is cross-posting these "statistics" from this site:

Mister Spak

100% of fundies say more than 100 retarded things per day.

10/17/2008 11:15:06 PM

The Lazy One

You fail at math. It's not possible for a greater percentage to have 1,000+ partners than 100+ partner, since those with 1,000 partners would by default be in the 100+ category.

Fundie math hurts my brain.

10/17/2008 11:22:18 PM


I didn't do well at all in high school maths, but I think even I can see the bijou problemette there...

10/17/2008 11:23:20 PM


Let's see if I can pull statistics out of my ass too;

15% of priests molested around 100 children
40% of priests molested around 200 children
35% of priests molested around 300 children
10% of priests wouldn't disclose their scores.

It's a frequently-copied statistic from NARTH that has absolutely no basis behind it.

Good thing too, because the cost of condoms alone would be astronomical.

"I know a homosexual man who hasn't had any partners, but he's an awful person to be around."

I have a gay friend who hasn't had any partners either. He's a lovely bloke but women throw themselves at him. He's an awful person to be around.
Still, it's lovely to see their faces when I tell them he bats for the other team. Evil laughter...
