Our modern world still conforms to an archaic double standard when it comes to the assumptions surrounding a woman who's single. When a high-value man is single he's viewed as "playing the field" or hasn't met the "right woman." When a high-value woman is single it's assumed to mean that men don't want her (for good reason.)
I want our government to accurately count us because it gives us power, tells us how to make life better for our community, and gives us hope. We need to know that we're one of many. I will press the Census Bureau to help us prove that, by adding questions to the census and other surveys about sexual orientation and gender identity.
