Hi! I'm Misha. Used to go by RadicalEdward on here, but Misha or Edward works, I don't care too much. I love Cowboy Bebop, Fractale, and Gungrave, but I love a lot of animes. I also fancy the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, Venture Bros, Frisky Dingo, SeaLab 2021, and Adventure Time. I cosplay A LOT and go to A LOT of conventions, and apparently people find me delightful, so I am in photoshoots, which is strange because when I was 7, I promised myself never to be a model. Oh well, I still eat all of the food in the world. Anyhow, that's about it. I love to talk and such, so drop me a line!

Well, since Grandmaster posted no source, I suppose I'll have to look these statistics up.
Well, what do you know? No such statistics exist from my Google searches. So, I'll just post different statistics, until somebody else can get statistics with a source that's valid.
- only 0.6% of gay men have ever searched for straight matches.
- only 0.1% of lesbians have ever searched for straight matches.
- only 0.13% of straight people's profile visitors are gay.
More than one-third (36 percent) of LGBT undergraduate students have experienced harassment within the past year, as have 29 percent of all respondents.
Those who experienced harassment reported that derogatory remarks were the most common form (89 percent) and that students were most often the source of harassment (79 percent).
Twenty percent of all respondents feared for their physical safety because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and 51 percent concealed their sexual orientation or gender identity to avoid intimidation.
84% of respondents identified as LGBT.16% of respondents identified as heterosexual or uncertain
71 percent felt that transgender people were likely to suffer harassment, and 61 percent felt that gay men and lesbians were likely to be harassed.
Forty-three percent of the respondents rated the overall campus climate as homophobic.
Every two years the Massachusetts Department of Education conducts a version (MYRBS) of the National Youth Risk Behavior Survey, exploring the health-related attitudes and behaviors of high school students. The 2003 survey found that LGBT students, when compared with their heterosexual peers, were:
over 5 times more likely to have attempted suicide in the past year;
over 3 times more likely to have skipped school in the past month because they felt unsafe at or en route to school; and
over 3 times more likely to have been threatened or injured with a weapon at school in the past year.
Taken from the Campus Climate for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender People, 2003 The Policy Institute of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Crimes committed in 2002 due to bias against the victim’s perceived sexual orientation represent 16.7% of reported hate crime incidents – the highest level in the 12 years since the agency began collecting these statistics—according to data released Oct. 27 in the FBI report "Crime in the United States in 2002." Sexual orientation bias represents the third highest category of reported hate crimes.
Hey, lookie here, Myths and Facts about Sexual Orientation!
Lesbian, gay and bisexual people cannot be identified by certain mannerisms or physical characteristics. People who are lesbian, gay or bisexual come in as many different shapes, colors and sizes as do people who are heterosexual.
Sexual experiences as a child are not necessarily indicative of one's sexual orientation as an adult. Many lesbian, gay and bisexual people have early heterosexual experiences, but are still lesbian, gay or bisexual; many avowed heterosexuals have had sexual contact with members of their own sex, but are still heterosexual.
No one knows what causes sexual orientation. Many lesbian, gay and bisexual people know that they are attracted to members of their own sex at an early age, sometimes as young as 6 or 7 years old. Others learn much later in life, in their 30's, 40's or 50's. Some research indicates that sexual orientation is determined between birth and age 3, but no one is sure what causes particular orientations.
Many people accuse lesbian, gay and bisexual people of "flaunting" their sexuality when they talk about their partner, hold hands or kiss one another in public. These are activities that heterosexual couples do all the time. Due to homophobic reactions, some lesbian, gay and bisexual people are actually forced to hide their sexuality in public, not flaunt it.
People who are lesbian, gay and bisexual work in all types of jobs and they live in all types of situations. They belong to all ethnic and racial groups. They are members of all religious communities. They exhibit a range of mental and physical capabilities. They are young, middle aged, and old.
Sometimes oppression based on sexual orientation escalates into acts of physical violence. In surveys of lesbian, gay and bisexual people, 52-87% have been verbally harassed, 21-27% have been pelted with objects, 13-38% have been chased or followed and 9-24% have been physically assaulted.
Most lesbian, gay and bisexual people are comfortable with their own biological sex; they don't regard themselves as members of the opposite sex. Being lesbian, gay or bisexual is not the same as being transgender.
The majority of child molesters are heterosexual men, not lesbian, gay or bisexual people. Almost all studies show that over 90% of child molestation is committed by heterosexual men.
Homosexuality is not a type of mental illness and cannot be "cured" by psychotherapy. Although homosexuality was once thought to be a mental illness, the American Psychiatric and Psychological Associations no longer consider it to be one. Psychiatric and psychological attempts to "cure" lesbians and gay men have failed to change the sexual orientation of the patient. These "treatments" may help change sexual behavior temporarily but also can create emotional trauma.
There is no definable gay “lifestyle”. Similarly, there is no standard heterosexual lifestyle. Some people might like to think that a "normal" adult lifestyle is a heterosexual marriage with two children. Less than 7% of all family units in the U.S. consist of a mother, a father and two children living together. The most accurate generalization might be this: lesbian, gay and bisexual people are different from one another in the same ways that heterosexual people are different from one another.

I meant what I posted! Not how much I said!

I mean, I live in a VERY conservative small town, with very narrow minded people obviously, yet when I debate them, they always go back to the Bible or some studies done by Marcus Bachman, and often get really flustered when I just use simple science. Speaking of science, I'm afraid us homosexuals have already invaded and took over some of the animal kingdom! AHHHH!
Marshmallow Bats are actually 75% homosexual, and only perform heterosexual behaviors if you will, to mate with each other, but even then, those clever little fellas actually came up with their own way to mate with each other, but since I figure not everyone wants to know about the mating habits of a marshmallow bat, feel free to look that up on your own. *tips my top hat*
I'm surprised this flow chart hasn't been used sooner actually...

I really don't care I suppose. I mean, the only reason marajuana became illegal in the first place is because of the paper industries back in the 20's I do believe, even though hemp could be better used to produce paper instead of trees.
