I don't think even the most ardent gay rights advocate would say that. They are definitely a minority, probably no more than 4 %.

No, and No.

Gay people aren't sterile, they can still procreate if they so desire, and have done so.

"GAY" is a spectrum, much like Aspergers/autism is a spectrum.

Can we please, please, please, get a separate forum for these threads? Just create a new forum titled "human sexuality"?

If you take into account people who had previously gay experiences, those who are bisexual, transgender, in the closet, or engage in homosexual activities but still consider themselves just straight then the I'm guessing it is a lot more than half the population. And it explains a lot.
