Our Site Visitors – Some Thoughts About Results Of Our Poll

Results as of November 23,2010

You can find the poll on this page.

One of our polls asks our visitors to identify themselves in terms of sexual orientation.  The choices we offer are (in the order in which they have been chosen): 

  • Gay
  • Bisexual 
  • Bi Curious
  • Straight but curious
  • Straight
  • Queer
  • Transexual

Given the nature and the name of the website (99gay-men.us), it is not suprising that more of our visitors identify themselves as gay (43%) than any other option.  However those who identify as straight but curious and bi curious make up a combined total of 26% of our visitors, a number that is slightly larger than bisexual visitors. I think that this may be because there is not a great deal of information out there about people who are somewhat attracted to same-sex exploration but have not yet taken the plunge.  We do offer some thoughts pertaining to that, although not with a great deal of insight.

Straight visitors make of 7% of our visitors.  I suspect that many of these people are newly interested in reading out gay issues.  It may be that current social issues of gay marriage of the proposed repeal of DADT have stimulated interest among heterosexuals in all things gay.  More like is that these straight people have recently learned that someone important to them is gay, and they wish to learn more about gay life and issues.  Perhaps, for example they might want to help a friend through the coming out process.

Only 6% identify as queer, which is something of an “in-your-face” activist label.  The term was much more popular during the early days of the gay rights era and within the AIDS activist community.  Perhaps the surprisingly low number here is a function of most common people interested in gay civil rights take an approach that is more toward integration with the mainstream society, thus “gay” is a more comfortable term.

Not one person who identifies as transexual participated in this poll.  I am disappointed in that.  We do review some films that would be of interest to the transexual population, and there is also some overlap in other areas, such as coming out.
