The Gay Vote, Gender, and Sexual Politics

Liberal Voting, Obama Voting, Gender, and Sexuality: 1990-2010 GSS

The war against women and gays and sex and humans who don’t have multi-million dollar trust funds continues unabated, and Newt Romney is raising money hand over fist to defeat the evil Islamic Homosexual from Kendonesia (Barak and Michelle and Bill Clinton keep sending me e-mails about this every day!). But, given that a good chunk of voters ARE homosexual, and even Moslem—and we even let Women Vote ( and Drive!) one wonders about the electoral consequences of hating women and people who have sex with people of the same sex. Fortunately, the GSS has been asking people if they got lucky recently, and with whom (not specifically, just in general, like were they male or female or both….). Turns out, since 1990 4% of the respondents of the GSS who reported voting in the last election also reported having sex with someone of the same sex! Isn’t that GREAT! I’m so happy they still get to vote! I’m sure Dick  Scott and Dick Perry are working on getting them disenfranchised, but for now, they can still vote. Women even! A quick look at the first column shows that people without penises tend to have voted for a Liberal in the last election (unfortunately, some of those Votes went to Ralph Nader and sent W to the White House). And, people who had sex with people fo the same sex are even more liberal! 58% of the same sexers voted for the liberal in the last election. Looking at the latest election, the penis gap gets even bigger. 53% of hetero men voted for Obama, while 63% of women just wanted them some Kendonesian! And, the gays turned out in spades for Obama—with almost 83% casting their vote for the Muslim. To put that in perspective, the gay vote is about 10 points off the African American vote—and gays are about one third the size of the African American voting population (less, once all of them are cleared from the voting rolls). So, gays have about 1/4th of the electoral punch as African Americans—and neither group is voting for Newt Romney.

    […] who speaks for us?  I may be wrong, but many of those — “some sociologists” — do not appear to either be LGBT themselves nor do they study LGBT communities (I’m including here bloggers and […]
