Government Agency Spends Millions to Find Out Why Lesbians Are Obese
Wasteful government spending has hit a new low. The National Institutes of Health wants to know why so many gay women are overweight, and they’re using taxpayer dollars to find out.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Taxpayers Have Now Spent $3.5 Million to Find Out Why Lesbians Are Obese
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has now spent over $3.5 million to determine why the majority of lesbians are obese.
The project, now entering its fifth year, received another grant worth $658,485 this summer. The total funding for the research is now $3,531,925. Funding has more than doubled since the study was first revealed in 2013.
Since, the study that is examining why three-quarters of lesbians are obese, but gay men are not, has survived sequester cuts, and continues to produce results such as the discovery that gay men have a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men.
Another scientific paper associated with the research concluded that lesbians have lower “athletic-self esteem” that may lead to higher rates of obesity.
