I think there will come a day when this is such a boring, taken for granted subject that there are no longer polls taken or article written but until then, this is a good trend.

If the goal is inclusion and unity, why does everyone want their own special label?

It's amazing how, when society changes in such a way that you're less likely to face ostracizion, hatred, and/or physical danger, when you admit you're anything but straight (doubly so as a male), the number of people identifying as something other than straight rises.  It's like some bizarre correlation occurs between negative feedback for being a member of Group X, and people willing to admit they're members of Group X.

Who knew?

Because it makes it easier to find people with whom you have something in common. And also makes it easier to find someone to fark.

In the case of "non binary" teenagers, to shock their parents. Ten years ago precisely the same people would have been goths.

I'm a little skeptical of those numbers.  Millennials seem to be confused about what LGBT means, and often seem to think having untraditional sexual politics is the same thing as being LGBT.  These are the same people who have tried to turn "LGBT" (already a stupid term) into the nightmarish abortion of an acronym  "LGBTQIAPK" in an effort to so water down queerness that straight people can qualify -- like fark people who think being "asexual" makes you queer.  Nobody ever beat the shiat out of anyone or kicked them out of a restaurant or arrest them for being "asexual."

It wouldn't shock me if 4-5% of Millennials were LGBT, and another 3-4% are just desperate to not identify as boring, repressive straight people.  Millennial progressives, most of whom grew up in liberal, progressive communities, tend to be as dogmatic and close-minded as small-town conservatives, and consequently they demonize straightness (and whiteness and maleness) almost as much as conservatives glorify the same.  It's like we polarized all of the issues, so now we're polarizing identities.  When you use Straight White Male as a synonym for Right Wing Christian Conservative, then you create a strong incentive for progressives -- especially immature progressives who are obsessed with virtue-signaling and identity reinforcement -- to avoid any part of the Straight White Male label.  If you define queerness broadly enough then queerness becomes an escape route from Straight White Maleness that is impossible to contradict but doesn't require queering hetronormativity.

No, they stay bisexual. They just become monogamous.

It's weird how worked up people get over something that has zero impact on their lives.

They're half right.

In a more restrictive society most bisexual people (unless they are near the end of the Kinsey scale to mostly homosexual) will never experiment or otherwise act on their bisexuality. They'll spend the their lives never knowing they're bisexual and their lives usually wont really be reduced by it.

Homosexuals are another matter. Square pegs and round holes (not intended as a euphemism).

Attraction does not equal behavior.

Which is why the poll numbers in TFA are changing.  Being out is a behavior.

And being married doesn't stop people from getting that tingly feeling for certain people.  To ignore that is a behavior of the monogamous.  And to not ignore it is a behavior of the adulterers.
