Do Gay Couples Prefer Seattle to San Francisco?
Perhaps incessant rain is a better backdrop for long-term romance. More likely, though, it's cheaper rents that help keep a family together. Whatever the reason, gay couples are loving Seattle.
Welcome to the gayborhood!
The Seattle Times is claiming that gays are flocking to the Emerald City with such frequency that the city "now has the highest percentage of gay-couple households among America's large cities."
The newspaper based its conclusion on recently released stats from the Census Bureau which show that in 2012, 2.6 percent of Seattle households were gay couples -- the highest percentage among the 50 most populous cities in the United States, according to the Times.
That's a really large cock-shaped cookie for San Francisco gays to swallow, considering the city has held the top spot since the Census Bureau began counting same-sex couples in 2000. Now the City by the Bay will have to deal with being second best since only 2.5 percent of all San Francisco households are gay couples.
To put this into context, in 2011, San Francisco had 2.4 percent gay-couple households while Seattle had 1.7 percent. That all changed in the last two years, and you can blame on the lesbians.
While San Francisco still has more gay male couples than Seattle, that's not the case for gay women. Seattle is now the no. 1 city for lesbian couples to comfortably nest.
So there you have it: dumped for Seattle. Fine. Go. That just means more cock-shaped cookies for us.
