3 thoughts on “An Empirical Analysis of Sexual Orientation Discrimination”

  1. I read it. It seems soundly constructed and the findings are, in that light, interesting. The authors call for more research n this area and that too seems reasonable. What I found most interesting was that the authors found that LGB mortgage applicants who did NOT appear to be gender non-conforming had less legal recourse, in the event of rejection, than those who did. In other words, for example, a masculine, apparently gender-conforming gay male whose loan was rejected because of his orientation had significantly less avenue of redress through the courts than a feminine gay male who was wearing a dress, who was refused on the basis of appearance (visible gender non-conformity).
    That seems a little odd.
