To PP who mentioned the one in ten, a Williams Institute researcher did a really good meta analysis for the Post and showed that the number is likely more like 3 or 4 percent. I can find the link if you are interested!
Hi Congrats on your LO!

No thanks, the 1 in 10 is just the popularly thrown about number; I have no misconceptions that it's the honest truth. I've done a significant amount of reading on the topic & there are very, very few "good" studies out there regarding the prevalence of LGBTQ individuals in the general population & even fewer of them give a good nod to the idea of sexuality as a continuum--if the research is...not flawed, per se, but not...thorough?...then the results of meta-analysis are equally as "flawed", KWIM?
