Federally Funded Study to Understand Why Lesbians are Fat

The government spending your money.

The National Institutes of Health  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 Women’s Hospital in Boston, Mass., has received two grants administered by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development 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.”

“[H]owever, one area that is only beginning to be recognized is the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” it states. “It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with  it continues.

“In stark contrast, among men, heterosexual males have nearly double the risk of obesity compared to gay males.”



  1. Might it be women look at sex and relationships differently than men? Maybe they're lesbians BECAUSE they're fat and that's their only option. With men it seems to be more genetic. Preprogrammed. The women seem more likely to choose that option. Just saying. No proof. Just honest curiosity.

  2. This is easy. Most lesbians are gay by choice having giving up on men, often because men aren't interested in them. Where's my money?

  3. Ya know, I was actually wondering this myself a few weeks ago, and when discussing with my very politically correct lefty, Obama loving sister, she got all upset over even just asking the question. I also asked why a higher proportion of gay men have lisps than straight men. Interesting question I think.

    I guess it's better the government spends money on this study than spending on more wars. I'd prefer government money spent on neither of course.

  4. Ive seen it first hand. One (large) lesbian seduces a (normal sized) new lesbian with loads of horrible food. They get a high from binge eating, and use one another as a non judgmental eating partner in "crime".

  5. Not that theres anything wrong with that.
