Twelve percent of feminists do other women



What percent of feminists are lesbian or bisexual? (Well, duh, I just gave it away in the title). The General Social Survey asked 8,275 women to put themselves on a political continuum ranging from extremely conservative to extremely liberal. The latter group I will label feminists. Women were also asked the gender of the people the had sex with in the past 12 months.

The graphs above shows that 12% of extremely liberal females do other women (along the x-axis from left to right, it goes from extremely liberal to extremely conservative). No other political category has nearly as many lesbians. Among extreme conservatives, for example, only two percent of women dig other chicks.

But hey, don't claim that us rightwingers don't have any Rosies in our ranks. We have a few. Mess with us, and I'll have one of them kick your ass.
