WASHINGTON—Confirming many of the disturbing findings of a recent Pew Research Center survey revealing that a staggering 77 percent of Americans have no idea how to refer to gay relationships, a report released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Education found that almost two-thirds of all students admitted to attending college are totally clueless about how to talk to their parents about their gay relationships. “We found that a staggering 78 percent of students at many of our nation’s top universities have no idea how to ask their parents how they feel about their homosexual relationships,” said education secretary Arne Duncan, noting that a staggering 86 percent of college freshmen and nearly one-third of all grad students who attend college have no idea how to ask their parents about their homosexuality. “The findings also indicate that, among our nation’s college students, nearly 60 percent do not even know what ‘gay’ means.” Duncan added that nearly half of all the children in this survey are gay themselves, with almost a third of them unable to say what “gay” means.
