This is what the new census might reveal. I performed this visual exercise with conflicting feelings about the fact that Florida's Broward County has begun a census that asks questions about the sexual orientation of households. It's good to be counted. It is bad to give hateful government that much
information ammunition. Also, if we decide to avoid identifying our households as gay, the government will report that we are not so large a portion of the general population after all, and this would be used against us. Damned if we do, damned if we don't. Also, those who are closeted will remain uncounted.
I'm coming to the conclusion that asking census questions about sexual orientation may be a very dangerous misstep. Our advocacy organizations should be protesting this rather than endorsing it.
