A recent Gallup poll shows that less than 1% of Americans born before 1946 identified as LGBT. Now, according to the poll, 2.6% of Baby Boomers consider themselves LGBT; 4.2% of Gen Xers do; 10.5% of Millennials do, and 20.8% of Gen Zers do.
This all makes less sense given that the Ls, Gs and Bs are very different from the Ts and shouldn’t all be lumped together, but that said, Bill Maher comments:
Which means if we follow this trajectory, we will all be gay in 2054. When things change this much, this fast, people are allowed to ask, ‘What’s up with that?’ All the babies are in the wrong bodies?
Some folks will say that people do not have a right to wonder what is going on, and consider questions about transgenderism to be hateful.
Someone needs to say it: Not everything’s about you. And it’s okay to ask questions about something that’s very new and involves children. The answer can’t always be that anyone from a marginalized community is automatically right, trump card, mic drop, end of discussion. Because we’re literally experimenting on children.
