AngryPanda: ph0rk: Aren't all NIH grants sequester proof once awarded? This passed the NIH approval process, the story is where?

The story is when people politicize science they don't understand or they feel has an agenda because someone they don't like is involved.


Or when we are borrowing money to give to other countries and then wasting money on studies on  why 2% of the population is fat.

I have seen A LOT of movies about lesbians and none of them were fat.

That's why disgustingly fat guys get all the chicks, amirite?

No, that's why it does not matter if they are disgustingly fat. I can name LOTS of fat guys that have been considered 'sexy' by women,

Brief summary of how classes of guys do sexually with women.

1. Rich sociopaths. High level corporate executives and such. (Very Well)
2. Middle class guys. (Very Poor. A women will probably eventually settle for you though.)
3. Poor sociopaths. Violent criminals, drug dealers and such. (Very Well)

Nowhere in there will 'looks' improve a male's chances very much.

You sound fat and ugly.


Yeah but I'm crazy so I get laid a lot.

LOL. Man, that is some shallow shiat. You need to re-evaluate how you view women. Are there women who find money, power, or agressiveness attractive? Sure there are. But your characterization of all women as idiots who are chasing a buck would be offensive if I were a woman. Hint: They aren't cum buckets who need you to judge and rate their worthiness to get a man based on how "hot" they are. They're human beings who have diverse interests, just as you do. I've dated women who wanted sex as much as I do and women who were as indifferent as you suggest they all are. How about growing up and looking at women as...people instead of potential conquests. Trust me, you'll do a lot better.

LectertheChef: If I had to speculate, it might have some link to depression. Which gay people tend to suffer from more than not-gay people. The depression thing seems to happen more if they're raised by Christians and taught that gay is an awful, horrible thing. As for it impacting gay women more than gay men, probably has to do with women turning to food more when they're depressed than men.
.


That and there is also a burden for women to fit into our society's expectations of beauty, and when they don't, I can see that compounding their depression.

Seriously.  It's got to be an absolute hell trying to love yourself while living in a society that actively hates you for who you are.

Guess we shouldn't study colorectal cancers, either, then, cause they only affect small percentages of the population too. Throw out that research on rare diseases as well, because if it doesn't apply to more than 2% of people, then it's worthless.

Wouldn't it make more sense to not be fat, and leave that bottom tier (Fat Lesbians) join the most revered subset of the population, the Skinny Lesbians? No higher social gains have been seen with such little effort.

Who was projecting what onto whom, then? You put a projector after a statement that conservatives hate government spending. That leads me to believe that you think liberals are projecting their own hatred of government spending onto conservatives. If that's not what you meant, that's fine, but it definitely looks like it's what you said.

2013-03-12 01:05:48 PM  
Many of the lesbians I see around town are quite slim. They are generally femmes although some are butch.

Some lesbians are fat.

Many are fat for the same reason your mother is fat:  they've landed their mate and have let themselves go in middle age. They simply don't care. There are a lot of "out" lesbians in the baby boomer age group, fewer obvious lesbians, perhaps, in the younger, more laid-back age groups that take same sex orientation for a given.

Some are more aggressively fat:  they reject societal norms of feminine beauty and put on way as a BFU to men and the idealization of the rake-thin model. These are bull dykes.

Some, of course, are fat for no particular reason--they just got fat for the same reasons women of all types get fat--lack of exercise, too much high caloric food, etc.

You have to remember that lesbians are 1) women and 2) often poorer than gay men or straight couples. If you eat a low quality diet, you are likelier to get fat. Also, lesbians can live and work in a broader range of places, work places, etc., so they are less socially and economically homogenized* than gay men

You don't really need a $1.5 million study to figure this out. Just paying attention will do. However, you do need studies to prove this. Common sense and anecdotal evidence doesn't do.

However, the perception that lesbians are fat does seem to have some slight statistical validity, or bias, at least, for the reasons I have stated:  ideology, age, class, income.

*In Canada at least, "homogenized" is often abbreviated "homo" on milk cartons and bags--you can buy Homo Milk in any convenience store or supermarket. Really. This is not one of my jokes. Google it.

The depression thing seems to happen more if they're raised by Christians and taught that gay is an awful, horrible thing. As for it impacting gay women more than gay men, probably has to do with women turning to food more when they're depressed than men.

That's all speculation of course, it could be something as shallow and silly as butch women trying too hard to be like straight men.


Hey I know.  Rather than speculate we could actually find out the reason because it may give us insight into how to solve our obesity problem.  (Kinda like how studying heart disease in women and learning about the protective effects of estrogen has helped us develop drugs that can be used by both men and women.)

This. IMHO y'all need to stop waging expensive wars across the globe. Let the farking world take care of itself. Stop shelling out bajillions to defense contractors.
