In the last post, Steve Sailer suggested I look at Americans born after 1954 since many born prior to this time would have been subject to the draft. This strategy reduces the sample size substantially, so I threw in bisexuals with homosexuals, which yields 23 gay men and 13 lesbians (not enough, really). The percentages ever serving in the military are as follows:
Percent ever serving
Straight men 13.6
Gay men 17.4
Straight women 2.5
Based on these more recent numbers, and once again assuming 3 percent of all men are gay and 1.5 percent of women are lesbian, "don't ask, don't tell" is an issue for about 3 in 1,000 Americans.
