Affirmative Action for Gays

I'm so tired of being discriminated against because I am gay. We need affirmative action. Each company needs to be required to hire 15% gays since gays are 15% of the population. Likewise for university admissions. It's the only way to right the wrongs that have been done.

Sure, if you can show us that.

University admission is a different stories though. Why do you need help? You guys/gals are much cleverer than many of us.

I thought gays were 10% of the population.

Have you gay folks been reproducing asexually, or what?

I think each company should hire 5% trolls.

Actually the 10% figure is based on Prison and Military samples and is generally recognised to be too high. A recent more random sample in the UK got a figure of 3%.

How do you prove gayness?

If it meant getting a higher paying job, plenty of people would check the "gay" box.

1.  It's funny, but I can't remember the last time we had gay slaves in America.

2.  As far as I know, gays are over-represented in the wealthy and cultured areas (and arts, and actors).  Thus they don't NEED affirmative action, they're already there.

Gays pay too much for schools and such as they have kids at 1:7 rates. Gays and other people who don't have kids should get a tax deduction (the check box would be right next to the one for dependents).

So maybe pacifists should get a tax rebate from defence spending?

Because their not signing up means the government has to spend more on private defense contractors/mercenaries? That doesn't follow. The pacifists cost the government money, so they should pay an additional tax.
