Children of same-sex parents more likely to be poor
Twice as likely to live in poverty as those of traditional married couples
Study looks at poor among gays, lesbians
By Andrea Stone, USA TODAY
Lesbian couples are more likely to be poor than married heterosexuals, and children of same-sex parents are twice as likely to live in poverty as those of traditional married couples, a new report shows.
TG: Because they don't have families to support, homosexuals generally make more money than their straight co-workers, as has been shown on previous WMD blog entries. How selfish and pitiful that their children are poorer than children of straight people. The love of many shall wax cold. Of course we realize that queer couples cannot produce theri own children.
UCLA's Williams Institute, which studies gay issues, says its report out today is the first to analyze poverty among gay and lesbian couples.The report is an analysis of the most recent data on same-sex unmarried partners from the 2000 Census and two smaller surveys that include questions on sexual orientation. Together, it argues, they debunk "a popular stereotype (that) paints lesbians and gay men as an affluent elite."
