STUDY: Don’t Support Gay Marriage? You Probably Hate Sushi, Too

The Pew Research Center and Public Policy Polling are know for reliable surveys that can sometimes shape public policy. But Mother Jones found an interesting correlation in their data: A Public Policy survey of Americans’ eating habits shows that an unwillingness to try sushi lines up with Pew data about what age brackets opposes same-sex marriage.
Maybe it’s all that talk about “serving up fish” on Drag Race?
P.S.: Before you statisticians get all up in our grill, we do realize there’s no proof of causation. But we like to think uptight homophobes have an illogical issue with delicious Japanese cuisine, too.

    I am more than willing, however the texture of uncooked salmon and beef do not agree with me and I find it revolting.

    I prefer it with canned tuna and fruit inside. Uncouth lout that I am.

    That the percentages line up is almost marginally interesting… but it only becomes even a curiosity if the headline is true, and the only way this data could support that would be if it showed the same *respondents* who said one almost always said the other, rather than merely having similar percentages.

    I can’t believe nobody went “there.” The jokes practically write themselves.
