Govt spends $1.5M to study why lesbians are fat

Our national debt is now $16.686 trillion — and increasing by the second. But the POS will not agree with House Republicans on much needed spending cuts, which means “sequestration” — automatic spending cuts to the federal budget will soon kick into effect.

Anticipating painful cuts to the U.S. military budget, Marine Corps Commandant James Amos is urging our Marines to preserve ammunition and gasoline: “Save every round, every gallon of gas.”

At the same time, the POS and the White House behave like they don’t have a care in the world, with 20 WH staffers making the maximum $172,200 a year salary. Underneath them are dozens of “deputy” assistants and “special”  assistants to the president, including “climate change” advisers, who also draw six-figure salaries of $100,000 or more.

Having the White House as a role model, the bureaucracies in the Executive Branch also throw taxpayers’ money around like there is no tomorrow. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) just awarded $1.5 million of taxpayers’ hard earned dollars to a Boston hospital to find out why lesbians are fat.

Elizabeth Harrington reports for CNSNews, March 11, 2013, that Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, has received two grants administered by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study the biological and social factors for why “three-quarters” of lesbians are obese and why gay males are not.”

The grant reads:

“Obesity is one of the most critical public health issues affecting the U.S. today. Racial and socioeconomic disparities in the determinants, distribution, and consequences of obesity are receiving increasing attention. [H]owever, one area that is only beginning to be recognized is the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities. It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic. In stark contrast, among men, heterosexual males have nearly double the risk of obesity compared to gay males.”

The investigators say there has been “almost no” research devoted to this disparity, and they have set out to find the biological, psychological, and social factors behind it. The researchers claim the subject is one of “high public-health significance.”

The project is being led by S. Bryn Austin, Director of Fellowship Research Training in the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital. Austin is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard School of Public Health, and an Associate Epidemiologist at BWH.

BWH first received a $778,622 grant for the study in 2011, followed by a $741,378 grant in 2012, totaling $1,520,000. The project has the potential to be a five-year study. The grants list a “project end date” and a “budget end date” of June 30, 2016.

Without a research budget of $1.5 million, I can tell the NIH why lesbians (or anyone) is fat:

They eat too much!!!

  1. Doc, you took the words right out of my mouth. So, now how do we apply for some of that $1.5million?

  2. Easy How many women in the United States are overweight or obese?
    (So the extra 15% comes from the ones that can not get a man)!
    Over 60 percent of U.S. adult women are overweight, according to 2007 estimates from the National Center for Health Statistics of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Just over one-third of overweight adult women are obese.

  3. Eye bleach alert!

  4. This time Dr. Eowyn, I am not going to thank you for this post (LOL). Just like DCG, “Eye bleach alert!” Dear God, help me!

  5. LOL, loved your explanation, Eowyn!!!!

    • I don’t want her you can have her,
      She’s too fat for me,
      She’s too fat for me,
      She’s too fat for me,
      I don’t want her, you can have her,
      she’s too fat, she’s too fat,
      She’s too fat for me.

  6. Maybe they’re stressed all the time over the fact that they’re not normal and eat, eat, eat the SAD (standard American diet) daily. Meaning fast food, munchies, sugary stuff and excess beer!

  7. Okee Dokee, this is how it works. They are Lesbian because they are Fat. They are Fat, because they have a Fulfillment Disorder. They have a Fulfillment Disorder because they have elected Stupid, over Intelligent…Lazy over Discipline.

  8. Rosie O’Donuts and her lesbian cohorts pound down the carbs due to frustration with their perverted lifestyle. Either that or the super-sized family bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken is actually an aphrodisiac.

  9. Carpet is extremely high in calories.
