The National Institutes of Health should be studying how to cure cancer, but instead they spent almost a million dollars on this…
At a time when our nation is almost 20 trillion in debt and close to 50 million on food stamps, our genius government decided to award Old Dominion university a grant of $911,056 to study the drinking habits of lesbian couples.
Instead of awarding some university a million dollars to research something that might actually help people, they study drinking habits of women in relationships with women.
No wonder he have so much debt.
According to the grant for the study, the younger sexually minority like to drink.
“Sexual minority women (i.e., women who self-identify as lesbian and bisexual) report more heavy drinking, more alcohol-related problems, and higher rates of alcohol use disorders as compared to heterosexual women. Young sexual minority women are particularly vulnerable.”
“Despite this awareness, no studies have examined how relationship factors and partners’ alcohol use contribute to hazardous drinking among female sexual minority couples.”
This isn’t an article that is upset because we are researching “gay” people, but the fact that we are researching drinking habits at all is ridiculous. The answers to the scientific study are going to come out one way.
People drink to cope with problems. Young gay people have a lot of problems in our society because of bigotry and ridicule.
One would think that young gay people would turn to alcohol like everyone else that has problems. I mean, it’s not too scientific, but it will come to the same conclusion and we didn’t have to spend $911,056 on it.
Next year, give the grant to a university studying cancer research.
What do you think the results of the grant will be? Let us know in the comments below.
