The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded $2.7 million to study why lesbians are at a higher “risk for hazardous drinking.”
The University of Illinois has received grants since 2009 for its project, “Cumulative Stress and Hazardous Drinking in a Community of Adult Lesbians,” which aims to develop “culturally sensitive” strategies to prevent lesbians from being drunks.
If the bureaurats doling out our money want to know why lesbians drink too much and eat too much, I’ll tell them: because people who construct their public identity around being sexual perverts are by definition psychologically unhealthy in the extreme. Such people will tend to seek refuge from their neuroses and self-hatred in overeating and substance abuse. Now where do I collect my $2.7 million?
Given that the government is funding this grotesque parody of research, you might have seen this coming:
Furthermore, the problem may be worse for “lesbians of color,” the researchers say.
Now that the feds set the priorities, doctors have deprioritized curing cancer in favor of “health disparities” — that is, the quixotic quest for evidence that disease is more unhealthy for privileged non-whites, who therefore deserve yet more special attention.
This is why it is absolutely crucial to medical research that the government have nothing whatsoever to do with funding it.
