New Poll Finds More Millennials Approve Of Homosexuality Than Casual Hookups, Abortion And Sex Between Minors
A new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute finds that millennials are more accepting of homosexuality than they are of casual hookups reports The Washington Post. The poll asked millennials, between the ages of 18 to 34, their views regarding various sexual behaviors including homosexuality. Around 38 percent said homosexuality is morally wrong, but 42 percent said it’s morally acceptable; another 13 percent said it depends on the situation while seven percent declined to answer. However, only 37 percent of millennials believe it’s morally acceptable for two people, regardless of their sexual orientation, to have casual sex with no intention of forming a relationship.
Nearly twice as many millennials approve of homosexuality more than those who approve of abortion (21 percent) and sex between minors (24 percent). Even more millennials approve of homosexuality than having a child out of wedlock (40 percent approval), although the two figures are fairly close without margin of error included in the figures. A full comprehensive report, including figures on millennials attitudes toward sex education and gender roles, is available on Public Religion’s website.
