Why should the census care if you’re a homosexual?

Trump administration nixes sexual orientation questions on 2020 Census.

The Trump administration canceled plans to probe Americans for their sexual orientation in the 2020 Census, nixing efforts by congressional Democrats who’d wanted a better picture of the country’s increasingly complex family and sexual dynamics.

Gay-rights advocates had been pressing for the questions, saying it was time the country got an official count.

They appeared to have won a victory Tuesday morning, when the Census Bureau released its list of proposed subjects for 2020, and said “sexual orientation and gender identity” were new additions. But hours later the Census released an updated list striking the sexual orientation proposal.

A spokesman for the bureau said they had been asked by members of Congress to include the questions, and had been studying it — but determined there was no “federal need” for that information to be collected.

“The Subjects Planned for the 2020 Census and American Community Survey report released today inadvertently listed sexual orientation and gender identity as a proposed topic in the appendix. This topic is not being proposed to Congress for the 2020 Census or American Community Survey,” the bureau said in a statement.

  1. I’m glad it’s gone. Because next census, the same gays that wanted it on the list of questions would say that Trump put it there so he can round them up and have them put into camps. Because the left is that insane.

  2. @MJA, I wouldn’t put it past them MJA but I think I’d like to see the questions but made pretty specific. None of the “Have you ever had a gay encounter even if it was only once” type of questions. I’d like to see “Are you a practicing gay man”, “are you a practising lesbian” or “are you a practising bisexual”. Make the questions black and white and find out if they are practicing right now. The reason being is that the gay community is forever throwing around numbers like 10% of the population are now or at sometime gay in some way or I’ve heard that the number of actual, fulltime gays are less then 1%. Finding a real number goes a long way to determining how much say they should have. Not knowing means they can be assuming power way out of proportion to their numbers.

  3. I’ve got enough time to figure out how to scare
    off one of those POS workers that bothers me.
    You know a regular cross on the door, and walat!
    No mormons come knocking?

    These little things in life….

    I’ve not tried the shotgun trick yet.

  4. I don’t even want them asking me how many flush toilets I have! Next thing you know my house will be a designated relief station for the homeless in Seattle!!

  5. Any census that requires sexual information from me is going to get an earful/pages and pages of info. What are there now — like 57 genders, according to facebook? I would detail every day of my sexual life and include all kinds of BS, such as, “on Monday, I was a heteronormative, cisgendered white female; on Tuesday, I felt more like a black pansexual; on Wednesday, I was a furry otherkin….”

  6. Just more proof that Bathhouse Barry is Jeremiah Wright´s “God-Damn America”-hating, taqiyah sunrise-drinking, flexible, Gay-obsessed, sheet-grabbing, pillow-biting radical Communist-Organizing Maladroit Marxist Muzlim Mallard!

  7. The census is supposed to count the number of people to apportion representation in congress. These other questions should not be asked.

  8. I refused to answer any questions asked of me by the census taker. I did, less than politely, state he was trespassing and had better leave.

  9. One more of Closet Barry’s secret gay obsessions hits the circular file. Just come on out, buddy. Everybody knows anyway.

  10. And remember, Barky did a little power grab in 2009 and transferred control of the census from the Commerce Dept. to the Whit House. That is how Trump got the power to nix the gay stuff. And that is how we end up with National Socialist Radio whining about a politicized census…

    “The U.S. Census Bureau is set to release proposed topics for questions in the 2020 census. Some demographers are worried that the census will become too politicized under the Trump administration.”


    Eff your concerns, NPR. Thou wouldst giveth not a shite if Hillary had woneth.

  11. Maybe they figure they won’t be adding to the population anytime soon. Or maybe they will have a little turd…..

  12. I’ve said it many times already, and I’m sure that I’ll be saying it many many times for the next 8 years… thank God for president Trump.

  13. We wait for the knock at the door and through an open window shout “TWO” to every question they ask. When this last census happened we lived in California, the census taker made hollow threats before she went away.

    But you know, the number of people living in the house is the only relevant answer to the only relevant census question.

  14. If you’re over 70, just tell ’em, “At my age, I’ll take whatever I can get.”


    P.S. – The penalty for refusing to answer census questions is $100, but it is rarely enforced. Even if it was, the census is taken every 10 years, so it only comes out to ten bucks a year.

    Seems like a small price to pay to protect your privacy.

  15. The US Census has no right to ask anything other than “how many live here?”.

    Turn them down on any other inquiries.

  16. “Do you suck other guys’ dicks?”
    “Do you let other guys fuck you in the ass?”
    “How much do you charge (to be sent to the IRS)?”
    “Would you like to meet a Halfrican who lives in Kalorama?”

    izlamo delenda est …

  17. Tim: Not everyone on the internet has a depraved mind and appreciates your vulgarity. Folks should be able to go online without being exposed to mindless filth like you posted. And what is your point? Is it supposed to be funny?
