Study: Gay men earn less than straight men, but lesbians are paid more

Study: Gay men earn less than straight men, but lesbians are paid more | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Sexual orientation seems to affect earning prospects and job satisfaction, a study shows.


Research by Nick Drydakis at Anglia Ruskin University found gay men on average earn 9% less compared to heterosexual men.


However, lesbians on average earn 12% more compared to heterosexual women.


Even in countries in the EU, Australia, Canada and the US, which have the strongest anti-discrimination laws, gay and lesbian people experienced more obstacles in getting a job, earning bias and harassment than their counterparts.

If prostitution is the oldest profession in the world, then punting is the oldest consumer activity. Yet it remains broadly unexamined, perhaps because the questions it raises are too uncomfortable.

Wicked? Homophobic wizards, gay witches and the fight for acceptance in the Wicca community

Wicked? Homophobic wizards, gay witches and the fight for acceptance in the Wicca community | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Though ‘Wicca’ and ‘paganism’ are often used interchangeably, paganism encompasses a diverse community including Druids, Shamans, Odinists and Heathens.  Wicca itself, has many sub-sections: Gardnerian, Alexandrian, Faery, Pictish and Kitchen Wicca are among the many. Though no single set of beliefs, tests or practices are shared by them all, they can be roughly characterised by: polytheism, the belief in multiple deities; pantheism, the belief that the spiritual and material universes are connected; belief in the afterlife; and an emphasis on ritual. And, like any widespread belief, paganism is not immune to infighting and disagreements.

“She wanted to be normal. We both did”: Why gender, sexuality, and desire matter | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The teenagers file into the classroom, an army of baggy jeans and stiff hair, acrylic nails and cell phones. They number at least thirty, maybe forty. Their teacher is forcing them to be here, because a community organization has sent me to talk to them about what it means to be a part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. The idea is that the more contact young people have with queers, the less likely they will be to hate us or worse.
