My new Taki's Magazine column is up. It's the first of a two part series:
Granted, I am as interested as anybody else in gossip about whether or not various famous male celebrities are secretly homosexual. But I’m also interested in the more statistical question: Overall, how many of them really are gay?
I don’t know. So I’ve been trying to think through the possible explanations for the scant data we have. In this two-part series, I’ll lay out the potential scenarios, all of which are likely true to some extent. I’ll conclude next week with a rather disturbing possibility that doesn’t get much press coverage, perhaps because it would violate the media’s current Prime Directive of portraying gays solely as powerless martyrs.
