PuddlePirate has come up with this interesting idea: 2010 census should ask for sexual orientation - BrainShavings
First of all... how cool is the name "PuddlePirate"?
Secondly, using the word "queer" probably would raise hairs on people's neck. But I like the concept. There is probably a way to word the question so that that would be acceptable by diverse interests.
I mean, think about it... the Religious Right would want to prove it is LESS than 10%, and the Gay Left would want it to be MORE than 10%. So there is something for both sides to win, and lose, in asking the right question.
Just the facts, ma'am.
