Els gais guanyen menys que els hetero:
"Gay males have more education than straight males, but they do not choose male-dominated professions as often as straight males do. In fact, they choose female-dominated and/or service professions much more often.” Gay males also work fewer hours than straight males.
I les lesbianes, més:
Lesbian women, by contrast, work more hours than straight females and are “overrepresented in male-dominated professions that pay better than female-dominated professions.”
I sobre tot això, una frase que deia fa uns dies de Bertrand Russell: "There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge"
