    sigh...I'm just going to stick with my friends and taking care of my home/garden/business. The alternative just seems like too much drama.

    This is a terrible article with rampant selection bias and incorrectly read statistics.

    Just the fact that they compare women with gay men makes the entire "study" invalid.

    We are NOT women.

    "The average age of an alleged cheater in the LGBT community is 28, and the majority are Geminis."


    Damn Geminis. Making us all look bad!

    That's just stupid.

    Who are the straight women cheating with? Lawn gnomes? The ratio of married vs. single is not that skewed between men and women. If straight/married women are cheating, at least some of the men they're doing it with are also married. Otherwise there is one guy who is really, really busy.

    All this says is that gay men cheat more than lesbians while str8 women cheat more than str8 men.

    It does not say what percentage of either gay people or str8 people cheat on their partners.

    Doesn't surprise me about the straight women-married women hit on me regularly, and it disgusts me that men are usually seen as the 'bad' side of the coin in hetero relationships. The gay guys, ? , it would be interesting knowing the lifestyles and circumstances of those that have and haven't cheated.

    These numbers are based on the people who have been reported by others on the website Cheatersville.com to be cheaters. This is no "study". It's even less reliable than an online survey that simply asks if you have cheated. These numbers in this so-called study do not take into account the person reporting someone as a cheater. I think gay men in their bitterness after cheating run to the computer and report the cheater more than a lesbian would in the same situation. I also suspect that in the case of heterosexual women, it is women reporting 'the other woman' and at the same time not reporting their husband or boyfriend that was just as much involved in the cheating. It also does not take into account that some may be using this report-a-cheater site as a revenge thing on former friends, acquaintances, coworkers, neighbors, etc. in disputes that have nothing to do with cheating.

    And the author of this article is no journalist. The misleading headline does not even agree with the misinformation he reports in the article.
