Our trusted Federal Government is spending gobs of dough we have to borrow from ISIS to explore the reason why so many lesbians are obese.
Hey, it’s true! I swear by the vanishing Arctic Ice Shelf.
I looked up who was running this scam and she kinda looks like Woody Allen in blue glasses but I only took a quick peek at her picture. What does not surprise me is where the funny money is going – some Eunice Shriver building in Boston.
Next I hopped over to last year’s study results to se what is going on with all the heavy lesbians the Harvard crowd needs millions to ponder. Here is what we paid for:
Now we are getting somewhere. Here is the brief brief on the extra large briefs. Something stuck out in the description of where all the information they studied actually came from.
Gay, lesbian, and bisexual youth may experience significant body dissatisfaction. We examined sexual orientation differences in self-perceived weight status and the prevalence of potentially dangerous weight control behaviors in a representative sample of adolescents.
Data were obtained from 12,984 youth between 2003 and 2009 over four cycles of the Massachusetts Youth Risk Behavior Survey, a statewide survey of ninth- through 12th-grade students. Self-perceived weight status and past-month unhealthy weight control behaviors (fasting >24 hours, using diet pills, and vomiting or using laxatives) were compared among gay/lesbian, bisexual, or self-identified heterosexual youth with same-sex partners, unsure youth, and exclusively heterosexual youth using logistic regression, adjusting for age and race/ethnicity.
Compared with exclusively heterosexual males, heterosexual males with prior same-sex partners and bisexual males were more likely to self-perceive as overweight despite being of healthy weight or underweight (respectively, adjusted odds ratio [AOR], 2.61; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.68-4.05; and AOR, 2.56; 95% CI, 1.64-4.00). Compared with exclusively heterosexual females, lesbians and bisexual females were more likely to self-perceive as being of healthy weight or underweight despite being overweight or obese (respectively, AOR, 3.17; 95% CI, 1.15-8.71; and AOR, 2.00; 95% CI, 1.20-3.33). Unhealthy weight control behaviors were significantly more prevalent among sexual minority males (32.5%; AOR, 4.38; 95% CI, 3.38-5.67) and females (34.7%; AOR, 2.27; 95% CI, 1.85-2.78) when considered together relative to exclusively heterosexual males (9.7%) and females (18.8%).
One third of sexual minority youth engage in hazardous weight control behaviors. Future research should investigate underlying mechanisms and determine whether clinicians should routinely screen for these behaviors.

Soooooooooooo the headline of this story I see says something about obese lesbians studied by supposed experts but in reality a couple million dollars went down the poor Kennedy well looking at TEENAGERS.
Now it all makes sense.
Who gets to share the database of the underage kids in the, I assume, public schools who are listed as having same sex partners?
Wouldn’t that be a great targeted source for a last minute political mailer to the parents of the studied children? Can you say Organizing for America?
It’s certainly the Chicago/A.C.O.R.N. way.
Don’t even bother denying this one moonbats.
