The Obama Administration isn’t just spending money to get lesbian farmers to sign up for food stamps, it’s also funding a study to see if the Patriarchy causes Lesbians to drink too much
The National Institutes of Health is spending nearly $1 million on a study of lesbian couples to see if stress makes them drink too much.
Not just any kind of stress, but the stress of living under Oppressive Patriarchy of White Privilege and Heteronormative Microaggression Triggers.
The research will be grounded in “Minority Stress Theory,” which blames discrimination and stigma for “negative mental health outcomes.” The latest grant, awarded this year, is a follow up to previous work that found “minority stress is associated with alcohol use and related problems via negative affect among lesbians.”
I strongly suspect the study will conclude: 1. Lesbians drink too much because of The Patriarchy 2. Millions of tax dollars need to be invested in programs to prevent lesbians from becoming alcoholics because of The Patriarchy, and 3. Anyone who questions the use of public funding for this study or the programs it recommends wants gay teenagers to commit suicide.
I wonder if anyone could get a grant to study whether the Government wasting money on stupid studies while running up a $20 Trillion debt drives people to drink.
