  •  Almost all of the scientific data... (1+ / 0-)

    ...is about gay men.  There is extremely little corresponding evidence about women or transfolk.

    Science does tend to restrict it's focus to men.  I'm sure you have noticed.

    •  You mean (GASP) that science (0+ / 0-)

      studies men more than women????

      I am SHOCKED!

      snark, of course, but it really shouldn't be; women, are, after all, roughly half the population.  The little I've seen on the issue seems to say there are as many L as G people.  I know you've said there's no really good estimate of the number of T people (and I know I've mentioned at least one study that involves T people exclusively).

      but, yeah, yet another instance of science studying one group and sort of half-assedly supposing it's general.  Somehow, it's always the group with power (whites, men, etc.) that gets studied.  I wonder why?
