woah, lots of data there. I had assumed that gay women were more likely to be in STEM and other dominated fields. But apparently the data I found showed that gay women were only 2% more likely to be in STEM occupations. I wonder if non-college oriented (working class/blue collar) professions could explain part of gay women premium. I work in blue collar energy industry. Very few females represented, but of the few, I would say a higher percentage of gay women than general population. Think welders/millwrights etc... I also see this in my in-laws restaurants. Every women cook (who generally get higher paid than cashiers), has been openly gay.

As far as Boygenius, I was hoping for something a little more punk / rock oriented. Listened to a few songs on youtube, but none hooked me.
