Supplementary notes

During the survey, five aspects were taken into consideration: awareness of LGBTQ+ topics, thoughtfulness regarding LGBTQ+ issues, visceral repugnance, concerns regarding social impact, general knowledge.

Definition of cluster analysis:
Active supporters: This group is characterized by their high level of awareness regarding LGBTQ+ issues, as well as their active support for the community.

Naturally open-minded: While not really knowledgeable about the LGBTQ+ community, this group of respondents is naturally open-minded and comparatively considerate towards issues faced by sexual minorities.

Aware, but not taking action: This group of respondents is aware of the LGBTQ+ community, but they do not feel the need to think about the community's issues, as they do not have LGBTQ+ acquaintances in their close surroundings.

Influenced by misconceptions: This group is worried about the influence of LGBTQ+ couples on the declining birth rates in Japan. They are naturally conscious of human rights, so their opposition stems from social concerns rather than repugnance.

Avoiding the topic: Members of this group are not actively opposing the LGBTQ+ community, but they do not consider the challenges faced by the community to be a general issue and therefore avoid the topic.

Openly opposed/criticizing: This group has a visceral repugnance towards the LGBTQ+ community and is concerned about potentially negative impacts on society.
