Gay, lesbian and bisexuals drink more, do more drugs

"Other research has already established that gay, lesbian and bisexual people's substance use is related to their exposure to personal, institutional and societal discrimination and to social stress arising from this experience of marginalisation."

no kidding.

i always love the way the news media picks out a specific demographic. Instead of looking at social-ecomnomic factors they just picked a subculture to study/exploit.

Actually, I think it's relatively valid. Most of the gays/lesbians/bisexuals I know have huge drink and drug problems.

Kinda valid, but is it the role of the govt to interfere in citizens' personal lives?

I take issue with the title

Gay, lesbian and bisexuals drink more, do more drugs

which only finally mentions halfway through the piece that

stuff.co.nz wrote:Gay, lesbian, and bisexual populations were only slightly more likely to use alcohol.

do you think that the the individuals you know are a fair representation of the entire gay community of new zealand? i know plently of homosexuals that dont do any drugs at all.

"The Health Behaviours Surveys on drug use interviewed 15,000 New Zealanders by telephone in 2003 and 2004."

was that the scope of thier research? cause i couldnt find any referance to any ACTUAL research

Also, gays and lesbians are heaps more likely to have tertiary qualifications and earn lots more money. According to a NZ study, anyhow.

im rather glad im not gay.... seems like a hard graft to me.

wouldnt go as far as to say im proud of it tho, most of the gay people i know these days are pretty cool, altho i used to know some real fuckwits.

all the worst bitchy qualities of women with no pussy and more testerone.
i am of the mind and the opinion that if something doesn't accept you,
you do everything in your power to fucking destroy it.
i don't care if it's the world, society, your family or a fucking high school
keg party.
you do everything you can to hit back...and strike back.
let go of some of that fucking hatred
i wanna poison this world the way it fuckin poisoned me.
i'm gonna to everthing, EVERYTHING in my power to corrupt, to twist, to
destroy, to rip apart, to poison.
i'm gonna spit my last breath in all your faces.
you're gonna hear me laughin at the end.
