I was looking at a new Gallup poll today, and I was wondering why a few people would refuse to answer a question, or maybe even lie about it. Particularly when the poll is anonymous/confidential.
This was the question:
Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender?
You're offered four options:
3. I don't know.
4. I refuse to answer that question.
So I've got three questions about that:
a. Why would any straight people pick 4? (I understand why some LGBT people might).
b. Why would anyone say they don't know? (Some late adolescents, I suppose...)
c. Would some LGBT people lie and pick option 2?
So I thought I'd run the poll here. I imagine most people will pick options 1 or 2, honestly. But hopefully some people will explain why they would choose options 3 or 4; or admit that they would lie about choosing 1 or 2.
But if no-one does, this still might be an interesting snapshot of our little community anyway.
