Feds Spend $1.5 million to Study Obese Lesbians

Post by SamCogar on Wed Mar 13, 2013 6:19 am

The National Institutes of Health awarded a Boston hospital more than $1.5 million to figure out why nearly three-quarters of lesbians are overweight — calling the disparities a significant public health issue.

“It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese, compared to half of heterosexual women,” according to a description of the grant.

The taxpayer money was awarded to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.

The grant was awarded through the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The hospital received a 2011 grant worth $778,622 and a 2012 grant worth $778,622.

HA, for a mere $500K I would have told the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston exactly why nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians are overweight or obese.

Duh, just because a female is overweight or obese doesn't mean their condition deactivates the hormones responsible for their uncontrollable "urges" to engage in a close personal relationship ..... but their condition does mean that their "chances" of attracting a male that will respond to or comply with their "urges" is significantly reduced toward "zero" in direct proportion to the extent of their overweightness or obesity.

Of course everyone already knows the "cause" but the Federal employees in charge of awarding Grant monies have a job to do, ya know. geek geek
