October 24, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A shocking new private poll shared by one of the country’s leading data scientists claims that 30% of American women under 25 identify as homosexual, bisexual, or transgender.
Before looking into the reasons for these numbers, Eric Levitz, in a New York Magazine article about the gender gap between Trump and Biden supporters, calls attention to the continuing rise of “singledom” — a preference for non-married life — among young women in the United States:
Neither the societal shift away from traditional gender roles nor the downstream cultural consequences of that shift are anywhere near complete. As Rebecca Traister has incisively argued, the growing prevalence of singledom among America’s rising generation of women is one of the most potent forces in contemporary politics. In 2009, for the first time in history, there were more unmarried women in the United States than married ones.
A large part of the trend away from marriage is attributable to young women rejecting sexual complementarity and identifying as lesbian, bisexual or a member of the opposite sex, Levitz explains:
And today, young women in the U.S. aren’t just unprecedentedly single; they also appear to be unprecedentedly uninterested in heterosexuality: According to private polling shared with Intelligencer by Democratic data scientist David Shor, roughly 30 percent of American women under 25 identify as LGBT; for women over 60, that figure is less than 5 percent.
As the poll is limited to women under 25, it doesn’t reflect changes to women’s sexual preference later on in life, while they’re still able to have kids.
In any case, conservative commentators were astonished at the poll’s findings.
“What’s behind this is primarily cultural. We have become an anti-natalist society,” suggests Rod Dreher, writing at The American Conservative. “And further, we have become a society that no longer values the natural family.”
“And now we have 30 percent of Gen Z women claiming to be sexually uninterested in men,” Dreher continued. “There is nothing remotely normal about that number. It is a sign of a deeply decadent culture — that is, a culture that lacks the wherewithal to survive. The most important thing that a generation can do is produce the next generation.”
“No families, no children, no future,” he added.
Andrew Sullivan, a popular mainstream political and societal commentator who identifies as homosexual, isn’t buying the stats, which he seems to think are way out of line and suggestive of openness to “female sexual fluidity.”
Sullivan tweeted, “Wild guess: 25 percent bi – meaning female sexual fluidity; 3 percent exclusively lesbian; 1.9 percent trendy trans; 0.1 percent actually trans.”

In an update to his article, Rod Dreher, and many of his readers, seemed to have reached the same conclusion as Sullivan: “The “B” in “LGBT” — bisexual — is probably doing a hell of a lot of work in that 30 percent number.”
While the reported statistics about female sexuality are shocking, the rise of “singlehood” is by itself cause for great alarm.
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)
PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Increasing numbers of single people see themselves as a new victim class — objects of discrimination by society and government which seem to favor married people and families. The singlehood activists want to level the playing field by steamrolling not only laws and regulations which offer economic benefits for marriage; they would like to see marriage itself tossed in the dustbin of history.
“Any way you look at it, the United States has undergone a seismic shift in marriage culture over the past few decades,” noted Stella Morabito, a senior editor at The Federalist, in a prescient 2014 commentary.
“A small, vocal, and organizing core of ‘singles activists’ are starting to prod and poke everyone to tell marrieds: ‘check your privilege!’” continued Morabito. “They basically claim that all economic or social benefits for marriage discriminate against singles.”
“Many singles’ activists envision a utopian society in which legally isolating every individual expands freedom,” observed Morabito. “And it might even seem that way for a little while. Some will revel in a perceived ‘New World Orgy’ of freedom. But the morning after this binge of faux freedom will bring a hangover that doesn’t go away.”
Morabito warns that the singles movement serves a statist agenda, increasing the role of government in individual lives, while diminishing individual freedom.
