The percentage of Americans #Identifying as LGBTQ has #Doubled every generation since topping out at 2.6% of the Baby Boomers.
At this pace, we are 2 generations away from having 80%+ of Americans #identify as #LGBTQ
#StraightPride Parades suddenly sound guaranteed.

“At this pace”
Assuming that all of this is a choice, and the numbers reflect actual change, and not just a willingness to go public with what’s always been true.
If 2% admit to it, then that makes it easier for another 2% to admit to it, no?
“#StraightPride Parades suddenly sound guaranteed.”
Ah. You think previously osracized minorities will ostracize new minorities. Because, to you, that’s what one does with a minority. Maybe that doesn’t have to happen?
There aren’t more LGBTQI+ people than there were before. The thing is, it’s much safer and more socially acceptable to come out than it was. Things like that make a huge difference. I’m sure at least some of the bigots spreading this garbage know this, they just don’t care about facts, they care about “truth”.
EDeploribusUnum: “There ARE
gays now than before!! Because society has slacked off on the measures that used to keep down the amount of people who made MORE
that CHOICE!! If we can’t reverse the trend, we will get Planet Of The Gays, where straights have to live like breeding animals!! Get your stinking paws off me, you damn
No eventually it will stop. The reason why the percentage is growing now is because LGBTQ people are more comfortable coming out. That two percent growth won't be consistent as after a while everyone will be out and no one will have to hide anymore.
Straights are never going to be a minority. Stop freaking out.

That’s not how #hashtags are supposed to be used.
Also, this is a
dumb, hasty generalization.
And it’s absolutekly not related to the greater tolerance. I mean, there’s no
open homosexuals in Afghanistan, Iran or Saudi Arabia, isn’t it?
Just like we better detect earthquakes today thanks to technology, not meaning that they're increasing, society became more aware of people who always existed when they were less suppressed. This has been observed not only in the West but also when studying other cultures, some ancient. But of course, it's part of bigotry and intolerance preaching to promote conspiracy theories of invasion, indoctrination, slippery slope arguments, etc. Just like some apocalyptic groups claim that the end is near because earthquakes are supposedly increasing.
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
