Poll: For Millennials, Gay Lifestyle More Acceptable Than Casual Sex

This sort of shows how ill-informed kids today are, but a new poll shows that millennials find the gay lifestlye more acceptable than casual sex quite despite that the gay lifestyle is built on casual sex.

A new PRRI poll finds that 20 somethings just don’t think there is anything wrong with homosexuality, but casual sex is bad.

Acceptance of gay marriage has long been a matter of when, rather than if — in large part thanks to younger generations being overwhelmingly in favor.

But just how quickly are views of homosexuality changing from generation to generation? A new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute has some insights.

The poll tested how millennials (ages 18 to 34) view various sexual behaviors, including homosexuality. And about equal numbers say homosexuality is morally wrong (38 percent) and morally acceptable (42 percent). Another 13 percent say it depends on the situation, while 7 percent declined to answer.

What’s most interesting, though, is when you compare homosexual activity to other behaviors tested. The poll shows more millennials think that sex between two people of the same gender is more acceptable than say casual sex between two people with no intention of forming a relationship (37 percent) — though the difference is within the margin of error. And about the same number say having a child out of wedlock is acceptable (40 percent).

One of the reasons that AIDS so quickly and easily spread among homosexuals is the promiscuity they practice. So, to say casual sex is bad but the gay lifestyle is OK is quite a contradiction.
