Gay People Earn More, Owe Less
5a

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are better at managing their money than the average American, new research shows.

5a


hey earn more, save more, have less debt and are better prepared for retirement, according to a Prudential survey of more than 1,000 LGBT respondents.

Respondents not only reported significantly higher annual incomes -- $61,500 compared with the national median of $50,054 -- but they also carried about $4,000 less in debt than the average American and had $6,000 more in household savings.

They were even slightly more likely to have jobs in the first place, with an unemployment rate of 7% versus the national rate of 7.9%, Prudential found...

It's probably because a lot of them are for a start, working in niche markets catering to their own demographic which are as a rule better paid than your average working stiff.

Also, it's generally more socially acceptable to be a fairy in less working class social circles... Hence more fairies coming out of the closet.

And last but not least, the selective handpicking of high-payed gay doctors, lawyers and whatnot as opposed to the mushroom pickers and manure shovelers the had on the straight side in order to dilute the results of the study.

Who cares if they make more money? Most gays don't make it past their 40s due to AIDS and other diseases.

Personally, I'd rather have a long life and a little less money.

And they have 3x more sex than straight folks. Seems like every gay guy I ever met, and I'm straight, drives a Beemer! Now we know why.

Probably because they don't have a woman spending all their money.
