The blog's raison d'etre is to empirically assess the (in)validity of stereotypes. File this one in the valid drawer: Because expanding the definition of marriage from being a union between two members of opposite sexes to being a union between two people had nothing to do with redefining the the parameters and expectations of the...

Big business and the culture wars, a marriage made in heaven: Forget Democratic Socialism, the arc of history bends towards Woke Capitalism:
The liberals of the 1970s found homosexuality more morally objectionable than contemporary conservatives do. Social conservatives have conserved their positions on guns and abortions. Not much else: Gays were widely considered predators and deviants a generation ago. Now they are among the most revered groups in the country. It's a reminder of how quickly the... Read More
From the latest wave of the World Values Survey covering the years 2017-2020, the percentages of people, by country, who do not want "homosexuals" as neighbors: Country %NoGay 1) Burma 91.3 2) Zimbabwe 89.1 3) Nigeria 89.0 4) Azerbaijan 85.8 5) Egypt 84.0 6) Armenia 82.4 7) Bangladesh 77.3 8) Vietnam 76.1 9) Turkey 75.8...

It's hard not to feel for the audacious engineer on the AI team that that put Pete Buttigieg together. He thought, reasonably enough, that crossing a couple of wires on the back end to give the staid Midwestern bot a bit of extra flair would be a nice touch. Now he's out of a job.... Read More
Comment of the week via Dissident on the staggering successes of the gay lobby: Tolerance was never the end goal. The gay lobby demanded--and won--celebration and adulation. Though gays make up two or three percent of the population, Westerners are more likely to witness--in absolute terms, not just proportional ones--gratuitous public displays of homosexual affection... Read More
Okay, that's hyperbolic. More accurately, this generation's conservatives are last generation's liberals: The question of what conservatism is conserving, exactly, remains an open question that Conservatism, Inc has a tough time answering. GSS variables used: HOMOSEX(1), YEAR, POLVIEWS(1-3)(4)(5-7)
Gregory Cochran, physicist and anthropologist, commenting on a genome wide association study based on data from the UK biobank: From the GSS, the percentages of people who have experienced poor mental health--described as "stress, depression, and problems with emotions"--in the previous month: Cochran: This may actually significantly overstate the number of homosexuals being evaluated. Alternatively,... Read More
From the GSS, the percentages of respondents, by decade of participation in the survey, who assert that "homosexual acts are always morally wrong": It's pozitively remarkable how socially progressive Jews were nearly fifty years ago. Extrapolating current trends of moral sentiment into the future, it will be around the year 2070 before blacks become as... Read More
A question about whether or not gay pride parades are sexualized? Could there really be uncertainty about that? Way back in the dark ages of the late oughts, when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton expressed hidebound opposition to same-sex marriage and retrograde support for marriage traditionally defined, people who asserted that normalizing homosexuality would lead... Read More
How rare are family units made up of an interracial gay couple with an adopted daughter of a third race? One in a million? One in ten million? My pop culture knowledge is thin, but I do recall a similar arrangement in Modern Family (sans the interracial coupling). Gay men adopting a son is potentially... Read More
++Addition++In going back to look at Jewish figures I realized I miscalculated the figure for white women, understating self-reported LGBTQ+ membership substantially. My sincere apologies for the oversight. I'm usually quite diligent in double-checking everything but this one slipped through the cracks. The errant text has strikethrough to document my mistake for posterity, but I've... Read More
From an enormous Reuters-Ipsos poll, the percentages of people by age and by political orientation who identify their sexual orientations as something other than heterosexual or straight*: More than one-in-four liberals under the age of 30 are gay (I wish!), bisexual, or beyond. There is steady but modest generational growth in deviancy from silents through... Read More
Not just behaviorally, but morally as well. From Reuters-Ipsos, the percentages who do not say it is important "for your friends and family to be faithful to their spouses": Respondents are not just talking about themselves, they're describing their broader social circles. Same-sex marriage was from the beginning about tearing down the pair-bonded nuclear family... Read More
Jig Bohnson writes: Excerpted directly from the gorillion-page report: Over 1,000 victims were identified (although they are obviously not named in the report). If for the sake of both simplicity and the benefit of Sodom we assume 501 male victims and 500 female victims and assume 5% of the population is gay--not bisexual, but exclusively... Read More
Pat Buchanan on the crisis of the Catholic church: And it needs be stated clearly: This is a homosexual scandal. The percentage of men, by sexual orientation, who do not deem it always morally wrong for 14 year-olds to have sex. Responses are from 200Add AnEpigone8 through 2016 (N = 2,649): The question implies those... Read More
- From a friend on business in DC: Wearing MAGA hats in the most hostile place in the country to do so isn't for the faint of heart. These young shitlords are made of stern stuff. They're exactly what we need. - Relatedly, a good dissident cartoon for someone like Ben Garrison to create would... Read More
Vox Day, in the context of an interview about sexual promiscuity and the damage it does to children: The following graph shows the percentages of people who have ever cheated on a spouse while married, by their belief (or lack thereof) in God. Responses are from 2000 onward and are restricted to non-Hispanic whites (N... Read More
Z-Man reads from the Episcopalian Book of Common Prayer (DC diocese version):
From Reuters-Ipsos, the percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, who think America would be better off with fewer men more women in politics. "Don't know" responses are excluded (N = 5,250): In a zero-sum game like politics, when one group gains power it is necessarily at the expense of another group. Normal people tend... Read More
They're thinking about it: So Vox Day is justified in doing the same: The GSS has (at least) five questions that potentially provide some insight into why Jews appear to be heavily overrepresented among the sexually overambitious. The questions don't get into the sort of criminal harassment and abuse that some of the "predators" are... Read More
To conclude this brief foray into frolicking, the following table shows the mean number of sexual partners of the orientation's desired sex in adulthood, by sexual orientation: Nearly one-quarter of gay men report having 50 or more sexual partners. They're living the lifestyle portrayed at pride parades and in so doing are driving the average... Read More
The following table shows the median number of sexual partners in adulthood respondents report having had, by sexual orientation and by the sex of those partners: The stereotypes for gays and straights hold. Sperm is cheap, and gay men put a lot of it into a lot of orifices. Reliably male orifices. A figure 'only'... Read More
Riffing off the previous post, the following table shows the percentages, by religious affiliation, who identify as gay or bisexual (N = 8,582): Bear in mind that the Jewish sample, at 161, is small, as the question about sexual orientation has only been asked since 2008. As in the case of condoning gay sex, Jews... Read More
Joe Biden--who may be quite the degenerate deviant himself--celebrating the enormous influence Jews have had on popular culture (via Vox Day): What is that influenced leveraged in favor of? Okay, we all know, but the blog exists for the purpose of empirically validating stereotypes, so indulge me. The GSS has a couple of questions on... Read More
A decade ago I did a series of posts showing, in short, that the "hate crime" designation is a way to get to bizarro world validate The Narrative, with designated victim classes actually looking like victims and designated oppressor classes actually looking like oppressors. The FBI hasn't yet released data on hate crimes for 2016,... Read More
Heartiste: Reuters-Ipsos recently initiated a poll asking respondents if they "support the stance Colin Kaepernick is taking and his decision not to stand during the national anthem". Only 1,630 people have been sampled thus far, so these results are relatively preliminary, but it looks like the silver tongue nailed this one. The following graph shows... Read More
From Reuters-Ipsos, a poll on the following: The subsequent graph shows, by selected demographics, the percentages who agree. "Neither agree nor disagree" responses, which 17.6% of those sampled answered with, are excluded (n = 4,670): Notice the y-axis begins at 50%. That's because even among gays, the group expressing the least concern about political correctness,... Read More
Since 2008 the GSS has explicitly asked respondents about their sexual orientations. About one-in-seven homosexual men (13.8%) report having at least one biological child (among men over thirty years old to allow the chance for procreation to have occurred). Homosexuality is a Darwinian death sentence. About the only thing worse from a reproductive standpoint is... Read More
Since the GSS began explicitly asking about sexual orientation in 2008, I've been tracking it alongside rates of marriage infidelity. Every other homosexual has cheated on a spouse while just 1-in-7 heterosexuals have. That figure has stayed remarkably consistent over the five iterations of the survey that have been completed from 2008 through 2016. A... Read More
Via Vox Day, news on the United Methodist Church's election of a lesbian bishop: Vox lays out Christianity's options starkly--maintain what is regarded as eternal truth or be converged out of existence: The following graph shows the frequency of worship attendance by sexual or
The 2016 iteration of the GSS is out. There are some new items that will further highlight how open borders and diversity kill libertarianism dead. They'll take some time to work through. For now, a brief miscellany of interesting tidbits: - The survey is primarily funded by the National Science Foundation and administered by the... Read More
[This post was updated on 3/18 from its original publishing on 3/16 to include the addition of a few subgroups. Source data is here. Additional follow-up posts here and here.] In imitation of Steve Sailer's--epigone, after all!--detailed demographic breakdown of the 2012 presidential election with Romney and Obama going head-to-head, here's a less aesthetically appealing... Read More
John Derbyshire's post entitled "Turkeys Vote For Thanksgiving--Gays Demonstrating For Muslim Immigration" spurred me to take a look at what the GSS has to say about the subject. The following graph shows the percentages of people, by religious affiliation, who believe that "sexual relations between two adults of the same sex" is "always wrong" (n... Read More
A few comments: - Why did he contract with a major publisher like Simon and Schuster? Milo's celebrity has skyrocketed over the last year. He had become a powerful brand name in his own right, to such an extent that long before his book was even written--let alone published--it was a bestseller on Amazon. Simon... Read More
Larry Wilmore, who despite fully embracing his blackety-black victimhood passes the brown paper bag test, asserts that gays are no more mentally disordered than straights are, a claim Milo Yiannopolous disputes:
Without clicking on the link, take a guess as to what search phrases returned these results from Google Trends: Hint: They all spiked during the week of June 12th, a date that coincided with a certain bloody incident in Orlando. Did you correctly peg them as "Christian hate", "Anti gay Christian", "Christianity homosexuality", and "Christian... Read More
An exploding Muhammad shoots up a hedonistic bugger dance club on "Latin Night" in the wee hours of a Sunday morning. It's going to really be something to see the left twist itself into a pretzel trying to explain this one. This time around the culprit isn't inanimate carbon rod, of course, it's the gun... Read More
His word choice, incidentally.Having every orifice in your body penetrated while playing the bugger's bitch does a snarky sodomite make:
A Reuters-Ipsos poll finds that Americans who think a person should be required to use the restroom that corresponds with his or her sex narrowly outnumber those who feel the restroom designations are merely suggestive, 52.1%-47.9%, with "don't know" responses excluded (n = 2,850).White men drive the overall preference for biologically-based restrooms, favoring use corresponding...

Nero asserts that gays are shifting away from the CultMarx left:
Pumpkin Person writes: This assessment is not one I'd have assumed to be the case. Hillary crushes Sanders among black and Hispanic Democrats, and those groups, especially the former, treat homosexuality with much less reverence than whites do, let alone liberal whites. Homosexuality, especially male homosexuality, is characterized by neotenous cognitive, behavioral, and emotional traits.... Read More
Blog tagline maintenance:Liberals are nearly five times as likely (465%) to be gay or bisexual as conservatives are. While 7.9% of liberals (1,240) are intimately interested in members of the same sex, just 1.7% of conservatives (n = 2,161) are.GSS variables used: SEXORNT(1-2), POLVIEWS(1-2)(5-6)
++Addition++See Tangoman's arguments for the necessity of an ethno-state in the comments. --- - I use a termite bait station to keep termites from getting into my house because I know their presence will lower my family's quality of life. I support the construction of a border fence to keep illegal immigrants from south of... Read More
My sons will be kings, and not because they'll (necessarily!) be Newtons, standing on the shoulders of proverbial giants. They will appear prodigious because everywhere they go there will be dwarves standing all around them. Absentee fathers are becoming the American norm. Seeing this sort of flamboyant dishonor shows that even where dads are still... Read More
The percentages of people, by sexual orientation, who reported having missed work over the last month due to "mental or physical" health issues (n = 1,160): Orientation Missed work Straight 13.3% Bisexual 19.4% Gay 34.4% Sample sizes are small for gays and bis (22 and 27, respectively) as the question was asked for the first...

Instead of mere powers of prognostication, we'd prefer Heartiste be blessed with the ability to do something to help Western civilization hold itself together (though he'd argue that he provides a powerful tool that could theoretically be employed to do just that). I suppose we use the skill sets we have. Self-quote: From New York... Read More
Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority: A graphical representation of data compiled from the GSS over the last few years: No less respectable a media organ of the Cathedral than The New York Times reported the same half a decade ago. If the presumption is that marriage precludes extramarital sexual activity, then it seems reasonable... Read More
An article entitled "10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage Is Wrong" captures the supercilious self-righteousness of 21st century America quite well. It is fueled by the same sardonic snark that powers outfits like Colbert and The Daily Show. A typical social media response: Browbeating and triumphalism are the objectives, not serious consideration of the subject at... Read More
