It occurred to me the other day that if it's true that 10% of the world's population is gay, and that's a uniform statistic, then the following is true:
There have been approximately four gay American Presidents.
There are about 25 gay members of the baseball Hall of Fame.
There were about ten gay Pilgrims on the Mayflower.
There was at least one gay signer of the Constitution.
There were about 4,500 gay soldiers killed at Gettysburg.
About 40,000 gay Americans lost their lives in World War II.
Gay Americans contributed about a trillion dollars to the American economy in 2004.
About 300 gay people were killed in New York on September 11, 2001.
Got the point? Gay history is 10% of American history. 10% of all the apples in a slice of pie, 10% of the stars in the flag, 10% of U.S. GDP, 10% of the poets, writers, singers, athletes, scientists, scholars, politicians, nobodies, celebrities, bums, tycoons, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Mormons in America, all gay. Get rid of that 10%, and this country becomes 10% less interesting, less wealthy, less powerful, less colorful, less itself.
