Democrats keep telling us that they have to raise taxes again and they can’t cut spending while every day we hear of more money the government is wasting. Here’s another example – millions of dollars spent studying why lesbians are fat. Who comes up with these things?
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded $1.5 million to study biological and social factors for why “three-quarters” of lesbians are obese and why gay males are not, calling it an issue of “high public-health significance.”
Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Mass., has received two grants administered by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.
It is unknown whether funding for the study will be cut due to the sequester, but for now it looks like it’s going forward, but White House tours are still cancelled.
