The Kinsey Reports and UFOs

In 1948 and 1953, Alfred Kinsey and Wardell Pomeroy of the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University provided two controversial studies on homosexuality in men and women.

Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953).


The studies concluded that about 10% [give of take] of the human population was homosexual (or gay, as society now tags the perversion).

But if you’re a news junkie or paying attention to sexual preferences in the human species as noted in 2016, you know that more – much more – of the population is homosexual (or gay) than anyone could have ever imagined and the Kinsey reports greatly underestimated the percentage of homosexuals in the human sphere.

[In Fort Wayne, where we have a watchdog for media operations, I can tell you that a much larger percentage of gays exist in the TV news rooms than Kinsey’s reports could have ever estimated or found by interviews and inquiries, in 1948/1953 or in 2016. Gays in our area of a conservative state remain mostly “closeted” or hidden, not for fear of reprisals by employers or the public but because it’s de rigueur to be discreet in a community that remains subliminally racist or prejudiced and was once a hotbed of activity for the KKK.]

Now how does this relate to UFOs?

Project Blue Book, at the end of its befuddled sojourn, “investigating” flying saucers or the UFO phenomenon, deduced that about 5.6% of UFO sightings were unexplainable: 701 of the 12,618 reports Blue Book gathered.

Like Kinsey, Blue Book underestimated (some say, “explained away”) its “research data.”

In 2016, there occurs many more UFO sightings, each day, that go unexplained than anyone cares to note; that is, UFOs show up regularly and no one knows what they are or even wishes to know what they are.

Just as homosexuals or gays) keep popping up in society and remain unknown, until something like the 2016 Orlando, Florida massacre happened, UFOs keep popping up, and remain unknown.

However, just as gays keep coming out of the woodwork, being "outed" by news reports and happenings, one would hope that UFOs would become “outed” by some enterprising news operation, because UFO buffs aren’t about to provide an explanation just as gays are not about to disclose their homosexuality until or unless they are forced to.

Kinsey obviously dealt with a semi-secretive group of people he interviewed, and news media (or interested scientists) are dealing with a muted crowd of UFO witnesses, who could provide meaningful information or data abut their sightings but choose not to.
