Posted on 03/12/2013 2:01:19 PM PDT by maddog55
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."
Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, Mass., has received two grants administered by NIHs Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.
Obesity is one of the most critical public health issues affecting the U.S. today, the description of the grant reads. Racial and socioeconomic disparities in the determinants, distribution, and consequences of obesity are receiving increasing attention.

Why do fat chicks become votaries of Sappho?
"Nom, nom, nom, nom."
Fourth time now.
In before this gets pulled for a fourth time...
Why was this not defunded in the sequester? Seems non-critical.
And forkin ugly...
It must be men’s fault.
So... what’s the reason they keep getting pulled?
We did have some overly sensitive admin monitors for a while who were sensitive over another topic,
but I didn’t think Jim had hired any female homosexuals as monitors lately.
In before ANOTHER zot!!
Sowell article on hypothetical gov’t agency in charge of statues of Benedict Arnold and dispensing kids’ medicine...
the kids’ medicine would be cut, not the statues.
Heterosexual men and lesbians, both groups overweight compared to women overall and homosexual men. What could they possibly have in common?
No reason to study it.
It all comes down to the basic assumptions of their worldview...
“you will be as gods, knowing good and evil”
Ah... people who are sexually attracted to women get fat!
Good luck with this. Three previous threads have been pulled.
Not sure, aside from the fact that the comments occasionally delved into bathroom humor...
That wouldn’t happen around here... :)
Say, did you hear Mark Stein make a “Uranus” joke yesterday?
Was mental illness even ever considered?
Maybe he meant “unibrow”.
the study will conclude that it’s the white christian male dominant society in which we live that don’t accept their lifestyle. therefore, because of ALL the vicious criticism lesbians eat to much to heal the pain. solution, pass new legislation, under obamacare, making it a crime for anyone to be critical of a lesbian’s lifestyle. sound ridiculous?
Why can't we have some fun at their expense?
So many snide remarks and so little time...
= = = = = = = = = =
I guess in real life ALL lesbians do not look like Halle Berry, Catherine Bell, Tiffany Amber Theissen, and such.
Not even ‘Ginger and Mary Ann’?
They don’t wrestle in Jello and mud for our pleasure?..
OH FIE......For shame.....
Only in the movies.
Not enough “Curves for Women” clubs...it’s tha fault of The Man.
Lesbians are fat because they are generally little homebodies who like to eat. Sometimes, they have been abused by men and the fat is a protection against guys coming on to them. Truly.
Gay men are obsessed with body image and the phallus and sexual activity of the most degrading sort. It’s all over for most gay men when they reach the age of 30.
You don’t need a government report for this. Ten minutes in the Chelsea section of Manhattan will tell you all you need to know.
....and it will take 10 years to balance our budget??? This is ONE example of the enormous wasteful, nonsensible spending by our govt.....God help us.
“Fat and Lesbian is no way to go through life, Son!” *SMIRK*
You can ask any lesbian about nutrition, healthy eating habits, exercise, regular checkups, etc. etc.
The fact is they just don’t know dick.
“Eunice Kennedy Shriver” is funding this?
Interesting - I seem to remember her being stick-thin, LOL!
There was a Saturday Night Live sketch where some frat boys had one wish left from a genie and wanted to see two hot lesbians getting it on. Unfortunately the one making the wish left out the word "hot" and got the comfortable shoes, flannel shirt very butch type. Oops.
“...they are generally little homebodies who like to eat...”
Oh, no. Wait till I tell my wife what she married.
And a Portia Di Rossi, comes along in about 1 in about 10,000 cases.
1.5 mil and all they had to do was e-mail Rosie O’Donnell and ask!
Might have something to do with who or what they are eating.
Oh my! I actually LOLed at your comment. I’m soooo bad.
How many Admin Mods are there? Total annual payroll for same?
Not to mention Elen Kagan.
Plaid flannel doesn’t come in petite sizes.
It cost the American people $400,000 (in 1980 dollars) and they wanted to find out two things:
1.) How many homosexuals there were in nursing homes.
2.) They wanted to establish a need where 'two people' would be able to have a room where they could go and have sex.
I was a coder which meant I had to read ALL of the answers of everyone who had been asked questions.
First of all, they found only one guy who admitted that he was "queer," however he refused to answer the sex questionnaire so he had to be eliminated from the study. So, statistically they found NO homosexuals or lesbians.
But, since I was reading all of the answers and was preparing them for the computer, I noticed that the biggest response from the women regarding sex was essentially, "My sex life died when my husband did. I don't even think about that stuff anymore."
I asked one of the Phd's conducting the study why they decided to do this study and he said, I kid you not, he told me that they wanted to establish a need where they could take the results to the state legislature and get a bill passed where every nursing home in the state would be mandated to have a room set aside where 'two people' could go and have sex.
At that point I looked at him and said to myself, "I don't know who the hell you are, but I know for damn sure I am nothing like you." Turns out he was a flaming liberal.
For all their careful planning and their waste of $400,000 they could not establish a need for a mandated sex room in every nursing home. And, the department ended up being sued by some of the children who's parents were asked such indelicate questions.
And, it was a real waste of your tax dollars.
Eating those hi cal nuts on the side??
Do women become fat because they are lesbians or do women become lesbians because they are fat?
Where do I apply for my grant to study this pressing issue?
Actually that’s not true. The main reason men drop out of the dating pool is alcohol / Drug problem or financial issues. The main reason woman drop out is obesity....they have a couple of kids and let themselves go.
Song break: "When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza ..., THAT'S AMORE!"
As always, the entire premise of the question is wrong...
The question is not “Why are so many lesbians fat?”
The question, of course is “Why are so many Fat women lesbians?”.
And for just half the amount of grant money I can tell you why.
There probably is no other objective to this study than to give employment to some fat lesbians in academia. Much of what the government spends is just to give money to people who are too proud to beg and are not gainfully employabe within a free market.
