    Why spend $1.5 million to understand why Lesbians are overweight

    I would venture a guess they were fat and and homely to begin with, thus no man wanted them so they turned to other fat and homely women for solace. I wouldn't be surprised if we have a few on this board making dopey comments from time to time.

    ...BTW, that money would be better spent keeping the Whitehouse tours going, wouldn't you say!

    Feds Spend $1.5 Million to Study Obese Lesbians

    The National Institutes of Health awarded a Boston hospital more than $1.5 million to figure out why nearly three-quarters of lesbians are overweight -- calling the disparities a significant public health issue.

    “It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese, compared to half of heterosexual women,” according to a description of the grant.

    The taxpayer money was awarded to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.
