The National Institutes of Health awarded a Boston hospital more than $1.5 million to figure out why nearly three-quarters of lesbians are overweight — calling the disparities a significant public health issue.

“It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese, compared to half of heterosexual women,” according to a description of the grant.

The taxpayer money was awarded to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity. The project is overseen by S. Bryn Austin.

The grant was awarded through the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The hospital received a 2011 grant worth $778,622 and a 2012 grant worth $778,622.

According to the NIH grant, the project’s end date is in 2016.

Well, if you ask me, we should start by cutting heads off the traitors.

Right after we have tarred and feathered them in the streets.

That’s sexist! It would be more correct to say that lesbians are pleasingly plump.

The $1.5 million study concluded that they are lesbians because they don’t have a chance with men.

In the US according to the CDC, about 2/3rds of adults are either overweight or obese, with 1/3 being obese and 1/3 overweight.

So they are concerned that 3/4 of lesbians are either overweight or obese and 2/3 of adults are either overweight or obese. Gosh, maybe that slightly higher BMI makes them feel less attractive to men and so they are more drawn to other high BMI women.

Can I collect my share of the $1.5 million now?
