One in Ten
Also found in: Wikipedia.
One in TenA popular phrase that derives from Alfred Kinsey’s influential paper on male sexuality in 1948, which concluded that 13% of men are exclusively gay; a sister paper on female sexuality in 1953 concluded that 7% of women are exclusive lesbians. The resultant media conclusion that 10% of the population is exclusively gay was a number far greater than popularly believed pre-Kinsey.
