So, you are stacking _means_ ? Actually, that's not a question. 
You are stacking means. Is that what you want to do?

Thank you. Here is an example similar to my data, but simpler:

x-variable: gender, taking values 0 and 1.
y-variables: income gap, divided into 3 components:
gap_ed,  gap_exp,  gap_unknown

I am using Stata 10.0. Without trying to use pattern fills, this is
very easy to do using the "bar graph" command. As in:

graph bar gap_ed gap_exp gap_unknown, over(gender) stack
