Have you ever noticed that lesbians tend to be fatter than gay guys? What was once the setup to an Andrew Dice Clay joke is now SCIENCE.
And these women — these victims — are in danger. Because of you damn wingnuts.
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…”
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…
However, the NICHD said the future of the project is uncertain because of the sequester–automatic spending cuts that took effect on March 1.
It’s not enough that Republicans hate women. Now you want them to get fat and die just because they’re not breeders? Figures.
There must be some way to solve this problem, even if the teabaggers are denying them vital taxpayer funds. Couldn’t they just ask Rosie O’Donnell?
P.S. To put it in terms you Rethuglicans might understand, this money could pay for 83 weeks of White House tours. So you have to ask yourself: How many White House tours are worth the life of just one fat lesbian?
