Quote:
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.



Quote:
The hospital noted that heterosexual males have nearly double the risk of obesity compared to gay males.

“Our study has high potential for public health impact not only for sexual minorities but also for heterosexuals,” the grant states.


So why do lesbians 'let themselves go,' while gay men 'out perform' straight men?

Because gay men, being men, are visual creatures who value physical attractiveness above all else....lesbians not so much. Now, where's my $1.5 mill?

Yes. I spent my Sunday afternoon at the beach last weekend and saw this:

Lesbians...not so much. Gay dudes lift.

It's because lesbians eat more than gay dudes.

They don't get enough sausage and yet they're obese.

Doesn't add up.

Maybe they're lapping up a lot of peanut butter. That's how I get my dog to...wait, I've said too much.

Come on guys. Lesbians clearly tend towards obesity because of self-esteem issues. When females are too thin, it's because of self-esteem issues. When they are too fat, it's because of self-esteem issues. That is the prevailing orthodox dogma, how can it be wrong? This money will be well spent confirming what we already know: threads like this make lesbians fat, because they hurt their feelings.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Shocked

btw - 'dogma' and 'lesbian' in the same thread - 'erase mental image Lucas, erase!'
