Do Gay Men Lose Their Hair Differently Than Straight Men?

Biologically, no. But psychologically? Maybe!

      This was considered newsworthy?

      I’m 51, gay, and have four straight brothers, 49, 53, 54 and 59 years old. I have, by far, more hair than all my brothers combined — and, unlike two of my brothers, do not use any hair regrowth drugs or treatments.

      *******

      I did click the linked article. That article perpetuates the false presumption that gay men have higher levels of disposable income than straights. Per the Williams Institute at UCLA, the US Census Bureau’s “American Community Survey” shows otherwise — straight men have higher levels of disposable income.

      This flaw greatly diminishes the creditability of the article.

      @Mike in Asheville: That’s simply untrue. The racial breakdown shows that gay white men, who comprise the highest number of gay men in the country (naturally), have higher disposable incomes as a subset of the gay population than all others in the LGBT community. FACT.

      When taken as a whole, gays may be below straights in income, but analyzing data a different way shows that the stereotype may be much more accurate than you realize.

      @TheRealAdam: Correction: gay white men have higher disposable incomes as a subset of the *entire* population, gays and straights included, not just the gay population.

      @TheRealAdam: Sorry Adam, but do your research: Using the Bureau of the Census’ extensive and on-going “American Community Survey” the Williams Institute at UCLA has accumulated a thorough report in its Census Snapshot series. Read the report yourself:

      All I know is, thank God for Propecia and Rogaine. They REALLY work. (My hairline is back to how it was when I was 20, and has stayed that way for years now.)
