Lost your job because the Obama Regime has sucked all the money out of the private sector with its never-ending spending binge? Rest assured that it is not for nothing. If not for the federal government, who would spend mountains of money on a quest to determine why lesbians are usually obese?
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.”
In the olden days, medical research was primarily concerned with frivolous issues like curing cancer. But now that Big Government dominates the healthcare industry, more important social justice issues are addressed. This usually involves searching for “disparities” — i.e., evidence that even disease is racist, homophobic, et cetera, thereby requiring more government spending and more emphasis on racism, homophobia, et cetera.
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.
Someone should investigate the relation between pandering to deviant “sexual orientations” and receiving lucrative government grants for frivolous research.
