Jim Burroway of Looking for Sam crunches some numbers and discovers that Arizona antigay activists are marketing several statistical lies as “facts.”
Among the misrepresentations:
- The myth that homosexual men have on average eight partners per year
- The myth that gay relationships last, on average, 1 1/2 years
As with propagandist Paul Cameron’s “research,” these numbers appear to have been cooked up by studying HIV/AIDS patients — not average gay men — and by purposely excluding suburban, rural, monogamous, middle-aged, and elderly gay men and lesbians from the survey samples.
