What Sequester? Feds Spend $1.5 Million to Study Why Lesbians are Fat

Alternate headline: “Government wastes a million-plus in effort to help Rosie O’Donnell lose weight”

From CNS News:

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.”

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 (NICHD) to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.

I have a theory, but I decline to specify it here.

In the interim, if the government wants to help lesbians lose weight, maybe they should instead take that $1.5 million and pay them to lead power-walking tours of the White House.
