LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Bisexuals are at least 400 percent more prevalent in Harvard University’s incoming class of freshmen than they are in the general population.
This sexual orientation disparity is not the only one revealed by Harvard’s freshman survey. The Ivy League school’s percentage of admitted bisexual students has grown over the past four years. Bisexuals comprised 2.5 percent of Harvard’s 2017 class, 2.6 percent in the 2018 class, 4.9 percent in the 2019 class, and 5.7 percent in the 2020 class.
The percentage of heterosexuals admitted hovered around 90 percent for the classes of 2017 and 2018, but has since fallen to 82.4 percent.
The racial makeup of Harvard’s incoming freshman class constitutes another disparity, when compared with national averages. Although whites comprise76.9 percent of the American population, they form only 52.1 percent of Harvard’s Class of 2021. Asians, on the other hand, are overrepresented at the school, with members of the race making up 23.8 percent of the incoming class, despite being only 5.7 percent of the United States population.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Harvard for comment, but received none in time for press.
