united_kingdoms_people1A survey of 1,052 UK adults has revealed some troubling data from our neighbors across the pond.

Most unsavory are the 16 percent who reportedly agreed that gay sex should be made illegal by the government. That’s roughly one in six Brits who would gladly slap a pair of cuffs on you for engaging in some innocent arsing around.

And respondents who weren’t against gay sex legally but simply morally clocked in at 20 percent. Of course, in 2008 that number was 24 percent so it looks like things are heading in the right direction on that front. 60 percent of Britons support gay marriage and gay couples’ right to adopt children, up from 50 percent in 2008.

Also, straight relationships averaged 17 years while gay ones lasted five. But we already knew about the “gay years” conversion rate. “Six months? Wow, that’s like a year and a half in gay years.”

But to be fair, America surely wouldn’t fare any better.
