First it was studying fat lesbians, then the Emperor’s Government decided to spend more taxpayer dollars to see if gay men used hook-up apps to, um, hook-up.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent nearly a half a million dollars studying gay hookup apps such as Grindr.
“Smartphone technologies have provided a new venue for sexual partnering among men who have sex with men (MSM),” the grant for the project states. “Indeed, there are a rapidly growing number of smartphone applications designed to facilitate sexual partnering among MSM.”
The Feds wanted to know if men would use apps to hook up with other men and then have unsafe sex; not that they would do anything to halt or discourage the practice, because the gay left would have a fit. So they spent a bunch of money to figure out what everybody already knew was going on, with no intention of doing anything to alter the activity they were researching.
Debt? What debt?
