Surprising statistic revealed about half of UK's youth population

Millennials Leaving Religion Because Of Anti-Gay Policies

The millennial generation is one that has garnered a lot of attention in the last few years and many simply trying to figure them out.

As mentioned in the Huffington Post video above, many millennials are straying away from organized religion due to their support of the LGBT community. Their positive outlook on same-sex couples is seemingly resulting in aversion to church institutions.

In fact, in a recent study conducted by YouGov, it was found that nearly half of the United Kingdom's young people do not identify as "100% straight." YouGov asked 1,632 people to put themselves on a Kinsey scale of sexuality, from 0 (exclusively heterosexual) to 6 (exclusively homosexual).

Among 18-24 year olds, 46% of young people rank themselves as 0 (exclusively heterosexual), 6% of this age group ranked themselves as 6 (exclusively homosexual). The unexpected statistic came from the middle range of the graph — 43% identify as neither completely heterosexual nor completely homosexual.

This 49% does not necessarily mean that half the population are homosexuals, but rather, they see their own sexuality as more fluid concept, implying that more are open to the idea of a same-sex relationship.

So we want to know, where do you put yourself on the Kinsey scale? (Remember, this poll is annonymous):
