Lesbian = bitch? I've shown in recent posts that Mexican women and Jewish men rank the lowest in kindheartedness. Now, I'm wondering how lesbians do up against other sexual orientation categories. The General Social Survey asked 1,671 Americans how soft-hearted they are from 1 to 5. Here are the means:


Mean soft-heartedness score

Straight women 4.33
Homosexual men 4.16

All Americans 4.10

Straight men 3.88
Lesbians 3.73

Overall SD 1.04

Gay men are similar heterosexual women, and straight guys and lesbians are close, although the guys are nicer. The difference between straight and lesbian females is sixth-tenths of a standard deviation--that's large.

One more stereotype empirically supported.

    The sample sizes for gay men and lesbians are probably very small.
