$431,363 Stimulus Project Concludes 'Gay Fathers' Have Less Time for Sex

(AP Photo) (CNSNews.com) – The 2009 stimulus law financed a $431,363 project in Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s California district to study the “psychological distress” of homosexual fathers. The study took three years to publish its results, and it created no jobs.

The study concluded that homosexual men are likely to reduce their chances of contracting HIV after becoming fathers, because there is less time for sex. The project, entitled, “Health and HIV Among Gay Fathers,” was awarded to San Francisco State University, located in the 12th district of California, at a time when Pelosi was speaker of the House.

The money was to be used to “to identify psychological and behavioral factors that help prevent gay fathers from HIV risk, substance abuse, and psychological distress as they navigate the myriad life-changing situations faced as parents.” The study was led by Colleen Hoff, professor of sexuality studies at San Francisco State University, who, along with a team of researchers, interviewed 48 male couples who are raising children together. The results were published in the journal Couple and Family Psychology on June 25, 2012.

The study found that homosexual men are likely to reduce their chances of contracting HIV after becoming fathers, because there is less time for sex.

"When gay couples become parents, they become very focused on the kids, they are tired, there is less time for communication and less desire for sex," said Hoff. "They go through a lot of the same changes as heterosexual couples who have kids."

"We found that gay fathers have less time for sex and less emphasis on sexuality, which could mean they are at less risk for HIV," she said. "Many fathers said they feel a sense of responsibility toward their children which motivates them to avoid risky sexual behavior."

The study also found that many gay couples “increased their commitment to each other and “deepened their relationship” after adopting children.

The researchers said they were surprised to find that becoming parents did not affect gay couples’ “sexual agreements,” or the contracts “many gay male couples make about whether sex with outside partners is allowed.”

"There wasn't the shift that we thought we might find," Hoff said. "For the most part, those who were monogamous before becoming parents said they stayed with that arrangement. Those who had open relationships before having children reported that they kept to that agreement,” she said.

The study also warned doctors to not assume that because a gay man is a father he is not sexually promiscuous.

"Some men felt that there is this assumption that if you are a gay parent you are monogamous," Hoff said. "This kind of stigma around gay parents' sexuality could be a concern if gay fathers are reluctant to talk to their physician about their sexual agreement and get tested for HIV.”

The study warns physicians and counselors against making assumptions about gay fathers and stresses the importance of offering them opportunities to discuss their sexual agreements and access to testing services, San Francisco State University said.

The funding for the study was broken up into two grants: $220,776 issued in August 2009 and $210,587 issued in 2010, both distributed through the National Institute of Mental Health.

According to Recovery.gov, there were “No jobs created or retained” from the study.

This Halfrican, phony who occupies the White Hut gleefully allows the 'blowing' of monies on things that are insignificant to normal Americans. These things, however, are important to the lowest class of human beings: the homosexuals and lesbians who infect our society.

The study proves that these queer men who can't procreate with their queer lovers, so they decide to act like normal adults for a change rather then screwing anything that moves? Here is yet another waste of tax money, where we were mugged by an evil central socialist government in order that the monies be spent on something nobody (except the homosexuals and lesbians)gives a rats ass about. If the CDC numbers are correct and 81% of the HIV infections are from gay men then at what point does it wipe-out the gay population?

Good news for American society. There is yet another disease to be visited upon the perverted sodomists that may wipe them out.

The next thing we’ll read about is a several billion dollar ‘stimulus’ project to study the possibility of replumbing one of the homosexual couples in order that procreation can proceed.

I don’t know exactly how this will work, but it’s possible that the partner replumbed will not have a rectum.

Or, how about this:

"Some men felt that there is this assumption that if you are a gay parent you are monogamous," Hoff said. "This kind of stigma around gay parents' sexuality could be a concern if gay fathers are reluctant to talk to their physician about their sexual agreement and get tested for HIV.”

Yes, you read that correctly. In the opinion of the alleged "researcher," monogamy is a "stigma."

So they have set up the meme that it is a good thing for queers to have children, to reduce the risks of getting HIV. Next will be a federal grant to help promote this idea and to “educate” all of us as to how great this will be for society, to reduce the risk of AIDS/HIV. That will take some multi-million dollar study before they can get it kicked off, though. But this first study has planted the seeds to continue.

Pure theft (of the taxpayers or their children), and pure giveaway to some liberal university.

This is not waste. This is theft and graft.

Gays want children to be their two legged puppies. Just an accessory for the house.

Sex and other selfish activities ALWAYS come first.

While the innocents are snug in their beds the two homosexuals are engaging in their pastime of shoving one’s pee-pee up the another’s poo-poo.

Nice, clean sex where the shovee busily cleans up the tool after the anal intercourse.

In every entryway of a homosexual couple a visitor will find a large painting of an anus: the object of worship.

Read the report again. You are assuming hey are monogamous. The study said otherwise.

A. I would never, under any circumstances, assume a queer was monogamous.

B. This is the first time I've seen monogamy referred to as a "stigma", i.e., a negative.

C. May God have mercy on this country.

So, with these kinds of "studies" the faggots in government get to spend OUR money on their fellow faggots thinking and discussing the wonderful world of faggotism. Reminds me of a recent article about a fedgov study using OUR tax money to figure out why 80% or so of female homosexuals are obese. They could give me the money and I'll tell them why - becuase they are pervert sows (sorry to offending any regular swine) who can't control their greed OR their perverted lust! Simple!

If anyone wants on/off any of my pinglists, freepmail me.

I reposted this most asinine accomplishment of the Obozo administration. The article gave ‘stimulus’ an entirely new meaning.

That story makes me laugh out loud every time. It just sums up the thinking and wastefulness of the Obama administration sooo well. You can’t make this stuff up, nor do you have to. :)
