The report stated that the difference in earnings between partnered lesbians and partnered straight women was around 5.5 percent and regarded as “statistically significant”.
However, when only single women were compared earning differentials were practically non-existent.
The opposite was true for partnered gay men, who were found to be penalised for being in a relationship.
Single gay men and straight men had “near zero” difference between their earnings.
In regards to employment status, the study found that gay men were 4.5 percent less likely to be working full-time than their straight counterparts.
When this is isolated to just a comparison of those in a relationship, the figures rises to 6.1 percent.
Bisexual men are twice as likely than gay men not to be working full-time with almost 12 percent (11.9) not working full-time when compared to heterosexual men.
For women, however, the reverse is true.
Lesbians were 8.2 percent more likely to be working full-time than straight women, though bisexual women were 5.4 percent less likely.
Again, when only the partnered sample is considered, lesbians in a relationship are 15.4 percent more likely to work full-time.
Authors of the study stated that their results were consistent with previous studies.
“Traditional heterosexual partnerships typically involve gendered specialisation, with the man more engaged in market activities than the woman, particularly given the prevalence of children among heterosexual couples,” they said.
“Even if the degree of household specialisation were the same in heterosexual and gay male households, gendered heterosexual specialisation means that the average partnered heterosexual man will be more focused upon market activities than the average partnered gay man.”
In a study last year, it was found that bisexual men earn a third less than gay colleagues.
Bisexual people were also found to be more likely to live in poverty or have poor health.

i don't like the fact that no links to said study were provided by the site nor any other numerical results so people could counter check the study and verify the validity. because if this is true i wanna confirm it and what's more i wanna be really angry about it.

Like the fellow commenter above me, I also want the whole data to be somewhat published along with the result. At least they should tell us how many couples took part in the survey!  Evil

That's really sad...

Prejudice do hinder people from getting the opportunities they deserve.

I would not be willing to give up a loving relationship to make a few more bucks, though....

there are several studies that show that queer women out earn queer men. Some folks seem to think that has to do with certain masculine qualities being attributed to lesbians. Most of the research is from the late 90s and early 2000s; so, I wonder how much that has changed.

Rather than being 'sad' or a 'shame', isn't this inevitable?  The causes they list (gendered specialization and presence of children) suggest that partnered gay men are earning less than their straight counterparts because they don't need to.  Straight women typically focus on raising children and often only have part time jobs.  The children themselves are an added expense.  Thus, even though each male makes slightly less than straight males, the couple as a whole is practically guaranteed to have more money, and the ability to afford to take more leisure time.

If you didn't need to work overtime to buy the things you wanted, would you?

Says quite a bit about how straight-men are "OK" with lesbians (because they're turned-on by them).
