Yet another to file under Your Tax Dollar at Work:
The federal government is spending $152,000 to study “voice therapy” for transgenders, saying it is incumbent to being “accepted as one’s preferred gender.”
“This study will illuminate the capabilities of the human larynx and inform the relationship between voice production and perception,” states a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant, awarded to George Washington University. “The long term goal of this research is to inform and provide new directions for Transgender (TG) voice care, thereby improving the lives of TG people who feel their voice is a great obstacle to living as their preferred gender.”
That is, the money is being spent to help the mentally ill pretend they are members of the opposite sex.
Our money must be spent on this because otherwise, according to the public health relevance statement, cross-dressing weirdos will “face discrimination when their voice does not match their preferred gender presentation.”
This is the inevitable result of letting the liberal ideologues who run the government seize control of financing medical research.
Meanwhile, this same government tells us that there isn’t enough money to pay air traffic controllers because of a slight temporary reduction in the explosive rate of growth of federal spending.
