Maybe, just perhaps, environment influencing young adults

corporate LGBTQ emblemsA record number of Americans are identifying as homosexual, lesbian, or bisexual, at least according to a new poll, and a medical doctor says the jump is evidence that our rainbow flag-waving society is influencing younger generations.  

The newest polling survey from Gallup finds 5.6 percent of U.S. adults identify as LGBT, with more than half (54.6%) identifying as bisexual.

Among the survey findings, the biggest eye-opening number is that a whopping 1 of 6 young people, the so-called Generation Z, identify with one of those categories.

Gallup says it surveyed more than 15,000 people, ages 18 and up, throughout 2020.

"Celebrate Diversity" banner"This is absolute confirmation that socialization is the number one contributing factor to LGBTQ feelings and identities," says Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians.

That conclusion makes sense, she adds, because it has been known for decades that sexual identity is not determined by genes, genetics, and hormones.

There is also no question younger generations have grown up in a relentless, rainbow flag-waving environment in which no product, from Kellogg’s breakfast cereal to a Burger King hamburger, gets advertised to them without promoting the LGBT message of “tolerance and diversity."

That same message is now a fixture in many public school classrooms, where there is no room for debate or skepticism unless a student, teacher, or coach risks punishment for displaying “homophobia” and causing emotional distress.

"However, when you look at these most recent generations of adults who were there with the birth of the Internet and cellphones, and a true explosion of LGBTQ activism,” she observes, “all of a sudden, you go from millennials 9% identifying to Generation Z nearly 16%.”

That, she summarizes, is nothing but socialization of a younger generation through indoctrination.
