Lesbians are the happiest as they are well-paid and more likely to get a promotion, study finds

Lesbians are the happiest as they are well-paid and more likely to get a promotion while bisexuals are only as cheerful as the unemployed or long-term sick, study finds

  • Homosexual women pip straight men to take top spot in ‘happiness ranking’
  • Employers like homosexual women’s traits such as lower pregnancy rates 
  • Swansea University study reveals bisexuals are glum because of stigmatisation

Lesbians are cheerier than people of any other sexual orientation because they are more likely to be promoted to better paid jobs, according to a study.

Homosexual women narrowly edge out straight men to take the top spot in a ‘happiness ranking’ analysis conducted by scientists at Swansea Univeristy.

Their findings suggest that business bosses are attracted to the traits associated with lesbians – such as lower pregnancy rates – which allows them to climb the career ladder quicker than their counterparts of other sexual persuasions.

‘Lesbians earn more than heterosexual women, so they may enjoy some form of reverse discrimination at work in comparison to heterosexual women’, academic Samuel Mann told the Sun

Happiness ranking by sexual orientation 

Lesbians: 5.184/7

Straight men: 5.171/7

Straight women: 5.166/7

Gay men: 4.745/7

Bisexual men: 4.648/7

Bisexual women: 4.574/7 

‘This is related to employers’ views about women, for example, the lower likelihood of lesbians bearing children.’    

Bisexual women are believed to be the most displeased with their well-being, which is comparable to an unemployed person or someone of suffering with an illness.

This is reportedly because they think they are stigmatised by sections of society. 

The study used a sample of 150,000 people in Britain to test the authors’ theory.
