Criteria to Measure the Transition to Homosexuality

 

To determine at what stage of the transition to homosexuality it is a country it is necessary to perform periodic estimates of the percent of the homosexual population.

 

In the following sections we will set up arbitrarily the first criteria that are known for such purposes

 

 

Direct Criteria to Determine at What Stage of the Transition Toward Homosexuality is Located a Country

 

 

Criteria: Per Cent of the Population Who Practices Homosexuality

 

We say that a country is heterosexual when less than 5% of the population practiced homosexuality. We say that a country is in initial transition towards homosexuality when between 5 to 10% of the population practiced homosexuality. We say that a country is in intermediate transition towards homosexuality when between 10 to 20% of the population practiced homosexuality. We say that a country is in advanced transition towards homosexuality when between 20 to 30% of its population practicing homosexuality. Finally, we say that a country is homosexual when more than 30% of the population practiced homosexuality.

 

With the object of studying the progress of the phenomenon of homosexuality in the planet, we could begin to classify the countries of the world using these criteria. This classification would allow us to determine which countries advance more rapidly than other in it transition to homosexuality.

 

Since this is a phenomenon that began relatively recently worldwide, having its principal origin in the United States from the 1960s, all countries in transition towards homosexuality are devoid of annual statistics covering a considerable period of time. The time period required for the occurrence of a transition from a straight to a homosexual is 4 to 5 generations that is 100 years or more. Thus this first criterion is not useful to determine the progress of countries in their transition towards homosexuals and therefore it is difficult to draw comparisons between countries in terms of its transition from heterosexual to homosexual societies.
 

In the absence of government statistics on the percentage of the homosexual population through the years it is therefore essential to establish other indirect criteria that let us to determine which countries are moving more rapidly than others toward homosexuality.

 

The indirect criteria that we propose to measure the transition of a country towards homosexuality are not properly talking criteria about the stage in which a country is in its transition towards homosexuality, but rather indicators of the force or effort or diligence with which the society is induced or directed or heading towards the transition.

 

 

Indirect Criteria to Determine the Force With Which the Society or Country is Pushed or Driven or Induced Towards Homosexuality

 

1st Criterion: Index of Persuasion or Suggestibility in Favor of Homosexuality

 

In keeping with the above, we propose as a second criterion to measure the progress of countries toward homosexuality the degree in which the population is attracted (persuaded, influenced or indicated) by prominent figures, or of high prestige in the country to assume an attitude of acceptance and tolerance of homosexual conduct. This index would be given by the percentage of prominent figures or significant for people who have expressed in favor of the struggle of homosexuals. We propose a total of 15 significant figures which we define in the following categories of classification: 1. The expressions of the President of the country, 2. The expressions of the judges of the Supreme Court of the country, 3. The expressions of the religious leaders in the country, 4. The expressions of the politicians of the country (the country lawmakers and Governors of the provinces or States), 5. The expressions of the Chief of police, 6. The expressions of the Chief of the army, 7. The expressions of the Chief of the Navy, 8. The expressions of the head of the air force, 9. The expressions of the Minister of education, 10. The expressions of the Minister of social services, 11. The expressions of the Minister of health, 12. The expressions of the Minister of the finance, 13. Expressions of Presidents or rectors of the universities of the country, 14. The expressions of the artists most famous in the country, 15. The expressions of the 10 sportsman and athletes more famous in the country.

 

The index of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality would be:

 

Index of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality = number of prominent figures expressed in favor of homosexuality/15

 

We say that a country exhibits a non significant level of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality when less than 5% of its most prominent public figures made public demonstrations accepting homosexual as good or legitimate behavior. We say that a country exhibits an initial level of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality when between 5 to 20% of its most prominent public figures made public demonstrations accepting homosexual as good or legitimate behavior. We say that a country exhibits an intermediate level of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality when between 21 to 40% of its most prominent public figures made public demonstrations accepting homosexual as good or legitimate behavior. We say that a country exhibits a high level of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality when more than 40% of their most prominent public figures made public demonstrations accepting homosexual as good or legitimate behavior.

 

The previous index can be refined so that it takes into account some weighting factors.

 

 

1st Weighting Factor

 

For example, not all the prominent figures exert the same degree of influence on the population when they express their opinion about homosexuality. Some figures are more prominent or relevant than others to influence opinion of the population. Therefore, it is necessary to take this into consideration when defining the rate of transition to homosexuality. The opinion or expressions of the country's Supreme Court is the most influential of all the prominent figures because they are those who interpret the laws and enforce them, establishing what is known as the law of the country. They have the power to compel citizens to comply with their decisions under the penalty of put them to prison. Consequently, we assign a weighting factor of 4 to this prominent figure. This means, that an opinion or expression in favor of the homosexuality of the Supreme Court of a country would multiply by 4.

 

The second prominent figure in importance is the President of the country. For this reason, we assign a weighting factor of 3 to the opinion or public expressions of the President.

 

The third prominent figure in importance is the Secretary or Minister of education in the country, as it has in its hands the education of future generations. For this reason, we assign a weighting factor of 2 to expressions of the Secretary or Minister of education in the country.

 

The opinions or expressions of the religious leaders of a country on marriage or homosexual relations are as important as the Supreme Court of the country. That is why we assign a weighting factor of 4 to the opinion or expressions of religious leaders.

 

To the views or expressions of the other prominent figures it is assigned a weighting factor of 1.

 

As consequence of the preceding weightings factor we must modify the denominator of the rate of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality by 23 instead of 15. The index would be as:

 

The index of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality would be:

 

Index of persuasion or suggestibility in favor of homosexuality = number of prominent figures expressed in favor of homosexuality multiplied by their respective weighting factors/23

 

 

2nd Weighting Factor

 

In addition to the previous weighting factor, there is a second refinement that can be given to this measuring instrument. For example, in the category "expressions of the country religious leaders" you could enter a second weighting factor x/z where x represents the number of religious leaders in the country that have been expressed in favor of the claims of homosexuals and z represents the total number of religious leaders in the country.

 

That is, the opinion of religious leaders of a country is not monolithic. Each leader of each religion that is practiced in one country can have an opinion different from the other leaders. Therefore, if there are 3 religions that practiced in the country, there will be 3 religious leaders who might differ in terms of the rejection or non-repudiation of homosexual conduct. For that reason the weighting factor of 4 is assigned to the opinion of religious leaders must multiply by the factor of correction (x/z) = (3/3) = 1 if the opinion of 3 religious leaders about the non-repudiation to homosexual conduct were the same or by (x/z) = (2/3) = 0.66 if only 2 of the 3 leaders agree not to reject homosexual conduct or by the factor (x/z) = (1/3) =0.33 if only 1 of the 3 leaders agree not to reject the conduct homosexual and, finally, by (x/z) = (0/3) = 0 if 0 3 leaders agree not to reject homosexual conduct.

 

 

3rd Weighting Factor

 

In addition to the two previous weighting factors with respect to the non-repudiation of the homosexual conduct by religious leaders of a country, should take into consideration the size of the population of parishioners of each religion on which the opinion of the religious leader influences. If for example, 80% of the country's population was Catholic, 15% were Protestant, and 5% were Muslim, the opinion of the leader of the Catholic must be multiplied by the correction factor .80, the Protestant leader by .15 and Muslim leader by .05.

 

 

The Weighting Factors in the Other Categories of Classification

 

2Nd weighting factor would also apply for the category "Expressions of the politicians of the country" where x represents the number of legislators in the country, and Governors of provinces that have been expressed in favor of the claims of homosexuals and z represents the total number of legislators and Governors.

 

In the same way would apply the same reasoning to the opinion or expressions of the Presidents or Rectors of the universities of the country, where x is the number of Presidents or Rectors who express themselves in favor of the claims of homosexuals and z represents the total number of them. The same reasoning applies to the opinion or expressions of the twenty most famous artists of the country where x represents the number of them which is expressed in favor and z represents the total number and them which is 20. Finally the same reasoning applies to the opinion or expressions of 10 sportsman and athletes most famous in the country.

 

3Rd weighting factor would also apply for the category "Expressions of the politicians of the country" which should be multiplied by the proportion of citizens to which the politician represents. In the case of the expressions of the Presidents or Rectors of the universities is multiplied by the proportion of students in each University of the total number of students in all universities of the country.

 

 

Form of the 1st Indirect Criterion: Index of Persuasion or Suggestibility in Favor of Homosexuality

 

This statistic will depend for its compilation of the cooperation and participation of the citizens of each country interested for providing us such information so that we can publish it in this site. Any citizen of country X can inform us about public demonstrations made by a prominent person in your country or any other country in favor of homosexual movements. For do this you should fill the corresponding form provided in the menu "Survey" or by clicking here.

 

In that form, persons wishing to report must indicate the following information:

 

Country of the informant.

 

Country in which occurs the manifestation of the public figure

 

Rating of the prominent figure

 

The name of the person who produces the manifestation.

 

Name of the newspaper or publication where it was announced the news.

 

Date, and the news page of the newspaper or publication which was unveiled.

 

The Web address where it appears the news of the newspaper or digital publication corresponding to the designated date of the publication or at least digital copy of the page of the newspaper or publication where the news appeared.

 

The name of the informant. (Optional)

 

Tel. of the informant. (Optional)

 

Email from the informant. (Optional)

 

We will verify the information that you provide and will be registered as statistical data on our website.

 

 

2nd Indirect Criterion: Index of Officialization or Institutionalization of Repression or Persecution of the Heterosexuals Who Voice Their Opinion Against Homosexuality

 

The second indirect approach that can be used to measure the progress of countries toward homosexuality is as follows: proportion of the State institutions have established laws to repress or punish people who express themselves against homosexuality. I.e., proportion of the State institutions have established laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. in the country or in provincial governments or State agencies or Government ministries in the country where it is prohibited, penalise or bait to people expressing their opinion against homosexuality. For example, we can define a universe of 14 State institutions: 1. national laws, 2. laws or provincial or state ordinances, 3. jurisprudence established by the courts of the country, 4. decrees or presidential policies, 5. regulations of the religious authorities, 6. the Ministry of education regulations, 7. regulations of the Ministry of social services, 8. regulations of the Ministry of health, 9. regulations of the Ministry of finance10. Police regulations, 11. Regulations of the army, 12. Regulations of the Navy, 13. Regulations of the air force, 14. Regulations of the universities.

 

 

 

The rate of transition toward homosexuality would be:

 

Index of officialization or institutionalization of the repression against heterosexuals that are expressed against of homosexuality = number of State institutions with laws or ordinances or regulations which prohibits expression or discriminate against homosexuality/14

 

We say that a country exhibits a significant level of officialization or institutionalization of the repression in favor of homosexuality when less than 5% of the institutions of the State have established laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. in the country or in provincial governments or State agencies or Government ministries in the country where it is prohibited, penalize or bait to people expressing their opinion against homosexuality. We say that a country exhibits an initial level of officialization or institutionalization of the repression in favor of homosexuality when between 5 to 20% of the State institutions have established laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. in the country or in Governments in provincial or State or agencies or Government ministries in the country where it is prohibited penalize or bait to people expressing their opinion against homosexuality. We say that a country exhibits an intermediate level of officialization or institutionalization of the repression in favor of homosexuality when between 21 to 40% of the State institutions have established laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. in the country or in Governments in provincial or State or agencies or Government ministries in the country where it is prohibited penalize or bait to people expressing their opinion against homosexuality. We say that a country exhibits a high level of officialization or institutionalization of the repression in favor of homosexuality when more than 40% of the State institutions have established laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. in the country or in provincial governments or State agencies or Government ministries in the country where it is prohibited, penalize or bait to people expressing their opinion against homosexuality.

 

 

1st Weighting Factor

 

The previous index can be refined so that it takes into account some weighting factors. For example, not all laws exert the same degree of influence or obligation on citizens. If a citizen of a province don't like the laws or ordinances of their province or State he has the option to move out of province. However, in the case of the laws that apply to a country, the citizen has no option. Therefore, it is necessary to take this into consideration when defining an index of transition towards homosexuality. Consequently, we assign a weighting factor of 2 to "National legislation".

 

The opinions or expressions of the Supreme Court of the country have double effect on citizenship because, in addition to expressions of significant and charismatic figures, they are also regulations. That is., when the Supreme Court is expressed on homosexuality, not only it exerts an influence as prominent figure of prestige on the opinion of the citizens of that country, but that also this view is at the same time a regulation that obliges every citizen to act in accordance with the opinion of the Supreme Court or otherwise receive a punishment of imprisonment or fine. Both the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court and the decrees or presidential policies have one much greater capacity to punish citizens who do not abide by these regulations. Consequently, we assign to these two categories a 3 weighting factor.

 

Finally, regulations of the religious authorities is a factor that is forcing parishioners to act in accordance with this regulation or otherwise be punished. The punishment is exercised through their awareness, through the creation of the feeling of guilt or sin that produces do not follow the commandments of the Church. That is, parishioner citizen is suppressed by any church through his conscience. When the Church indicate the behaviors that considered sins, the violation of these regulations produces citizen guilt before the Commission of sin. We consider the regulations of the religious authorities as the most influential of all about the conduct of citizenship. Consequently, we assign a weighting factor of 4 to this heading.

 

 

2nd Weighting Factor

 

In addition to the previous weighting factor, there is another refinement that can be made to the previous measurement instrument. For example, in the category "Laws or Ordinances of provincial or State " may enter the correction factor x/z where x represents the number of provinces in the country that have issued laws or ordinances repressing expressions against homosexuality and z represents the total number of provinces in the country.

 

With regard to the heading "Jurisprudence established by the courts of the country" do not apply you this correction factor, since what matters is the opinion of the majority of judges members. That is, the minority opinions of dissident judges are not which are applied as case law in the country, but those of the majority.

 

With regard to the heading "Regulations of the religious authorities" this correction factor should be applied.

 

 

3rd Weighting Factor

 

In addition to the two previous weighting factors with respect to the non-rejection of homosexual conduct, should take into consideration the size of the population. For example, in the category "Laws or ordinances of the provincial or State" weighting factor given by the proportion that represents the population of the province of the total population of all the provinces of the country could be introduced. This proportion must be multiplied together with the other two weighting factors described above.

 

The same reasoning would apply to the categories "Regulations of the religious authorities" and the "regulations of the universities" of a country. It should take into consideration the proportion representing the population component of the category of the size of the total population of all the components of the category.

 

 

Form of the 2nd Indirect Criterion: Index of Officialization or Institutionalization of Repression or Persecution Against Heterosexuals that Express his Opinion in Against of Homosexuality

 

This statistic will depend for its compilation of the cooperation and participation of the citizens of each country that is interested in providing us information so that we can publish it in this site. Any citizen of country X can inform us about the existence of laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. that have been established in his country or in the municipal government or any private company in his country and where it be penalize, punish, avoided, restricted in some way that people can speak out against homosexuality. To do so must fill in a form that we will provide you in the "Survey" menu or by clicking here.

 

In that form people who denounce or report on the existence of any law, Ordinance, regulation shall indicate the following information:

 

Country

 

Category to which belongs the Act, ordinance or regulation.

 

Law, Ordinance, regulation, etc. (name, number and document data to establish the law, Ordinance, regulation, etc.).

 

Who or what agency, Office or company issued the document (name of the person, agency, Office or company, issuing the document).

 

The Web address where it appears the information about this document or at least digital copy of the document.

 

The name of the person who informs us. (Optional)

 

Tel. of the person who informs us. (Optional)

 

E-mail address of the person who informs us. (Optional)

 

We will verify the information that you provide and will be registered as statistical data on our website.

 

 

3rd Indirect Criterion: Index of Rrepression or Persecution Against Heterosexuals that Express his Opinion in Against of Homosexuality

 

A third Indirect criterion that can be used to measure the progress of countries toward homosexuality is as follows: what proportion of people expressing their opinion against homosexuality are attacked, persecuted or punished, either through rejection or application of laws, ordinances or regulations that have been established in the country so they have had to apologize or retract or be stop continuing to hold his opinion?

 

The rate of transition toward homosexuality would be:

 

Index of repression or persecution against heterosexuals that renders opinion against homosexuality = number of people who have been subjected to attack, persecutions or sanctions for expressing their opinion against homosexuality/total number of people who have been expressed against homosexuality in the country

 

We say that a country exhibits a significant level of repression or persecution for homosexuality when less than 5% of the people expressing publicly their opinion against homosexual conduct are penalized, punished or persecuted. We say that a country displaying an initial level of repression or persecution for homosexuality when between 5 to 20% of people who publicly express their opinion against homosexual conduct are penalized, punished or persecuted. We say that a country exhibits an intermediate level of repression or persecution for homosexuality when between 21 to 40% of people who publicly express their opinion against homosexual conduct are penalized, punished or persecuted. We say that a country exhibits a high level of repression or persecution for homosexuality when more than 40% of people who publicly express their opinion against homosexual conduct are penalized, punished or persecuted.

 

 

Form of the 3rd Indirect Criterion: Index of Repression or Persecution Against Heterosexuals that Express his Opinion in Against of Homosexuality

 

This statistic will depend for its compilation of the cooperation and participation of the citizens of each country interested for providing us such information so that we can publish it in this site. Any citizen of country X can inform us about repression, persecution and punishment suffered by any artist, government official or prominent figure, both in their own country and in any other country. To do so must should fill the form which we will provide in the "survey" menu or by clicking here.

 

In that form people wishing to report about any repression, persecution and punishment, shall indicate the following information:

 

Country of the informant.

 

Country in which persecution takes place

 

Name of the repressed, persecuted or punished person.

 

Name of the newspapers or publications where unveiled the news.

 

Date, and the news page of the newspapers or publications where was unveiled.

 

Address on the internet or digital copy of the newspaper for the designated date or at least digital copy or the internet address of the page of the newspaper where the news appeared.

 

The name of the informant. (Optional)

 

Tel. of the informant. (Optional)

 

Email from the informant. (Optional)

 

 

Expected Results

 

We believe and support the hypothesis, based on the information that in recent years has circulated in newspapers and news of the world, that if we use these last three indirect criteria to measure the transition of a country towards homosexuality, it would be heading the list the United States of America, followed closely by Argentina and Spain.

 

We are in the process of taking measurements of these criteria to base our hypotheses. The result of such work would be setting a precedent, producing the first quantitative measurements of countries in transition towards homosexuality. However, this requires financial resources with which we do not have, as we are not a government agency of any country with properly allocated budget and resources to perform that task. Therefore, we have to rely on voluntary cooperation from those who decide to participate in this work in each country and the economic cooperation (donations) from those that may not offer their work, but who are interested in the development of this work.
