Google Trends: gay, straight / 2008-01-21 / SML Screenshots

www.google.com/trends?q=gay,+straight

 

Someone at work (who shall not be named so as not to be tainted with these subject matter) told me about Google Trends today as a far more addictive toy to play with than Google Sets. I tried it out and he's darn right.

 

Here as per my own curiosity, I noted how while there are approximately twice as much "straight" news stories than "gay" news stories, there are more than 10 times as many "gay" searches than "straight" searches.

 

If Kinsey is right about that 10% of the (American) population is gay, then we see that the other 90% is at least very curious.
