Why Gay Men Are Better Educated But Earn Less Money Than Straight Guys

Besides these two Canadian lottery winners, gay men are earning less than their straight counterparts, while lesbians are earning more than hetero gals, says reporter Joe Clark after “reading and summarizing every article on lesbian and gay economics published since the 1990s.” He was on a mission to bust myths, and his findings are less interesting than his analysis, where he concludes things like: gay males are better educated than straights but do not choose higher-paying male-dominated professions; and lesbians work longer hours, are better educated, and more likely to enter male-dominated careers that pay better. Notice Clark says he read articles on economics, not the bullshit the Washington Post spits out.
