Further proof that the world is filled with stupid people.
A new poll found that 70% of Americans feel that gay men and lesbians should be allowed to serve in the military. But that poll also found that only 59% of Americans feel that homosexuals should be allowed to serve in the military.
Which means that at least 11% of Americans don't understand that "homosexual" means exactly the same as "gay" or "lesbian."
