UNITED KINGDOM – A new BBC poll conducted by Ipsos MORI: Global market and opinion research specialist is sending shock waves throughout Great Brian as their results show that a third of its youth between the ages of 16 to 22-year-old, identify as being attracted to the same sex or at a minimum have given it serious thought.

Breaking down the numbers, 87 percent admitted to having same-sex attraction while only nine percent identified themselves as bisexual, while the remaining fourteen percent said that they were”mostly heterosexual” but did admit to giving same-sex encounters a serious consideration.

‘Now in my opinion, What I was hoping for was the main question that all parents and adults always want to know and that is, “Have any of the people surveyed in this study actually engaged in gay sex? “Let’s be honest!’

Now the BBC study which was spear headed by Ipsos Mori, surveyed 3,000 people divided into four generations which are Z, Y, X, and baby boomers. What is not surprising as study in the USA have shown is that the people in the survey showed that as the generations got younger, fewer members identified themselves as being solely heterosexual.

For example, the survey for Generation X claimed 85 percent while Generation Y came in at 71 percent.

In conclusion, Ipsos Mori’s poll shows that 88 percent of baby boomers identified as being 100 percent heterosexual while only 9 percent identified themselves as “mostly heterosexual”. Only one percent totally identified themselves as being bisexual.

As was expected, the majority in the survey felt that the millennials are more comfortable with an LGBT label or stigma, how ever way you wish to look at it. Though this isn’t surprising in this reporter’s opinion because it has been this way since the early 2000s.

By the BBC doing this study 17 years later shows that they still have a lot of catching up to do to understand the LGBT community.
