One potential problem with these numbers is that the first figure presented doesn't take into account all the straight single moms and dads out there. If I'm reading it right, this is comparing all kids of gay parents to only kids of straight married parents, which aren't really comparable groups income-wise, right?

Likewise, I wonder if the higher rates of poverty amongst lesbian women involves the fact that a significant number of straight women share income with their husbands, who as males are more likely to earn higher salaries.

Statistics are tricky.
