More evidence on Younger = Gayer.

At least at Harvard.

“While approximately 1.8 percent of the general United States population identifies as bisexual, 7.9 percent of Harvard’s Class of 2021 says they are bisexual.”

“Bisexuals comprised 2.5 percent of Harvard’s 2017 class, 2.6 percent in the 2018 class, 4.9 percent in the 2019 class, and 5.7 percent in the 2020 class.”

“The percentage of heterosexuals admitted hovered around 90 percent for the classes of 2017 and 2018, but has since fallen to 82.4 percent.”

Links to sources are given.

(For nit-pickers, bisexual is “gayer than” heterosexual.)

Observation: Note the big jump between the class of 2018 and class of 2019. (These stats are taken from surveys of incoming freshmen.)  

Question: What happened between the time that the class of 2018 entered as freshmen, fall 2014, and  the time that the class of 2019 entered as freshmen, fall 2015?

Answer: Obergefell.

Update Sep 6, 2017: the original article with the stats is here: features.thecrimson.com/2017/freshman-survey/makeup/

Under the Demographics section, click on Sexual Orientation. Then  you can click on years 2017 – 2021 to see the changes via a pie chart.

Here are percentages presented:

Class Year- Homosexual- Bisexual- Questioning- Other- Hetero-
2017 3.7 2.5 3.2 0.7 89.9
2018 3.7 2.6 2.9 0.6 90.2
2019 4.9 4.9 2.6 1.4 86.2
2020 5.1 5.7 2.9 1.2 85.1
2021 5.6 7.8 2.8 1.3 82.4

Sample size was one half of the class.

Homosexuality is up 50%, and bisexuality has tripled in four years.  This fits my predictions that the changes brought about by SSM would begin in the young as they reached the age of sexual experimentation, and that the incidence of homosexuality and bisexuality would “skyrocket”.

If you want to see what’s coming, don’t look at the overall population, look at the young adults.

One problem with this type of argument is that the “other side” thinks this is great and exactly what they want. It’s common among the LGBT+ crowd to claim that their are way, way, way more gay and bisexual and whatever else (at our recent “training”, we were told “gender non-conforming” is basically the same thing as Transgender – tomboys are trans, basically) than are “out” and if we remove the stigma, the percentages will jump dramatically, and that’s a good thing.

At some extreme ends, it’s asserted that the majority (or even nearly all) of people are actually LGBT+ in some way – for example, see here: https://askthebigot.com/…/the-story-of-moira-greyland…/
“My observation of my father and mother’s actual belief is this: since everyone is naturally gay, it is the straight establishment that makes everyone hung up and therefore limited.”

(For the sake of argument…) There are societies in which disease becomes endemic, sometimes at high levels – for example malaria in many parts of the world; and even some inbred genetic conditions.

The question is whether high rates of disease then make disease ‘a good thing’.

(Biologically, I suppose the best definition of a disease is that which reduces reproductive success – biologically good health is only a means to that end.

So, in mainstream secular modern society, high intelligence is ‘a disease’ or at least a pathology; because – although it is highly corrected with better health and longer lifespan, it is also highly correlated, especially in women, with lower reproductive success. (On average the most intelligent modern women have about half a child, when replacement is over two).

In societies where reproductively damaging disease is highly prevalent, the only ones who can reproduce successfully are those resistant to the disease – even when resistance carries a high price of sub-optimality (e.g. malaria resistance from sickle cell anaemia, or thalassemia). It can become a case of a choice between diseases.

In traditional societies reproductive success is mostly a matter of raising children successfully, since there are manyfold more than replacement numbers of children who are born; but in the modern world, reproductive success is almost wholly a matter of high birth rate, because child and young adult mortality rates are so very low by historical standards (even in the poorest parts of the world, even during modern famines the population sometimes continues to grow rapidly – e.g. Ethiopia).

I have an easier explanation for at least part of this. I think many young people (at least those going to an Ivy League school) find that saying they are bisexual makes them more attractive to members of the opposite sex. It makes them seem a little exotic and perhaps less threatening. Like a conservative in law school telling all his liberal friends that he is actually libertarian.

I wonder if it also gives them a competitive advantage in admissions as a disadvantaged/persecuted minority or something.

I have to agree with JRL. While I am sure there a significant marginal change, for many people, it is just a combination of cheap virtue signaling and sexiness signalling, particularly for girls, but also for guys.

How would we tell the two kinds of change apart? I am not sure.

200% increase in self-identified bisexuality, … maybe there are several factors. Since other sources, cited in previous posts, say the biggest portion of the increase in bisexuals is female.

50% increase in self-identified homosexuality over 4 years? If that is mostly virtue signalling, it still strongly illustrates a major decrease in the social stigma of homosexuality. I can see claiming bi might be such signalling, but not 100% homosexual, as that would tend to close off options.

Regardless of the underlying nuances, over such a short period these figures are a sea change.

Another sea change is experimentation. They aren’t just _saying_ (or falsely bragging like generations of guys since time immemorial), they’re doing. And there are a zillion videos online to show them exactly how. (Actually, they’re learning at school. Google “fistgate”.) Oprah did a show years ago on teen sex, and the kids shocked _her_ (takes a lot to shock Oprah) with all the stuff they saw online and imitated.

Ag: if I understood correctly, this survey was done after admittance.

One of the problems of virtue signaling, is when something becomes a common signal, it then becomes a virtue signal to demand that others signal, and even condemn them when they don’t do it soon enough, fast enough, well enough, or often enough.

It was good to see that, with some exception in the classes of 2019 and 2020, LDS students were keeping the standards the Church expects regarding both sex and alcohol, standing out from the crowd.
