SEXUAL ORIENTATION & OBESITY [ Federal Study Concludes Being gay is a Health Risk ]
U.S. Department of Health & Human Services ^ | March 2013 | U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

Posted on 03/13/2013 6:41:01 PM PDT by NoLibZone

Abstract Text: DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant: Sexual Orientation and Obesity: Test of a Gendered Biopsychosocial Model Obesity is one of the most critical public health issues affecting the U.S. today.

Racial and socioeconomic disparities in the determinants, distribution, and consequences of obesity are receiving increasing attention; however, one area that is only beginning to be recognized is the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities.

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. In stark contrast, among men, heterosexual males have nearly double the risk of obesity compared to gay males.

don;t need no study to know thta homosexuality is unhealthy.

The body is made up thta each limb,, each joint, every part of the body has a function.

The ass pushes out turds
the colon is right there and the prostate is seperated by a thin film from the ass

Of course feces sex is unhealthy and certainly not natural but then there is the mind which is not right either and for them the cheese certainly fell off the cracker

The Obama Department of Health just concluded that Homosexuality is a public health risk.

It’s Science!

“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.”

What will Bloomberg do?

I really don’t think that obesity is the major health concern for homosexuals. I’ve seen studies that put their life expectancy at 42. They also account for somewhere around 60% of AIDS cases while making up about 2% of the general population. The health risks of homosexuals is pretty much a forbidden topic.

This issue reminds me of two lesbians I went to law school with. They “found” each other during a blizzard our first year. No kidding, I would estimate that each gained at least 50 lbs. within 18 mos. of that. I admit that out of sheer, morbid curiosity, I would like to know why; but not at taxpayer expense.

I used to live in SF, and it is not uncommon for a gay man to never know the name of one (or even most) of his sex partners.

I worked with one gay guy told me point-blank that he frequented car rest-stops, which are liked as pick-up places specifically because they provide an atmosphere of anonymity.

He also told me several times about being threatened with arrest at train stations, but the rest-stop story was so spooky I didn’t ask him for details about any of his later confrontations.

At the Folsom Street fair in SF, it is common for one man to fellate or even pee upon another man —WITH the police present.

This is terrible,
We must stop them from their destructive lifestyles.

They are doing this to show that homosexuals are victims and will probably propose a hetero tax “to make things fair”.

Not at the gym I go to. They are addicted to working out. I don’t dare go into the steam room or sauna - have actually seen and heard stories from others about what goes on in there.

I was in medical practice in 1981 when the first reports of “gay men’s disease” appeared in the CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).

The reports had detailed sexual histories of gay men who had developed a rare form of cancer called Kaposi’s Sarcoma. These histories recounted how these turd burglars would frequent “bath houses” in NYC, Frisco, and LA where they would have anonymous anal and oral sex with up to 60 “partners” each visit.

Most of them had extensive histories of other communicable diseases including hepatitis, genital herpes, gonorrhea, syphillis, etc. In other words, the creme-de-la-creme of “gay” society.

Is it any wonder then that their immune systems were toast and they contracted “gay men’s disease”?

It wasn’t too long before the human immunodeficiency virus was awarded civil rights by the CDC and no more sexual histories were reported. This violated every tenet of established public health procedures but it was just way too politically inconvenient to continue reporting stories that would gag a maggot.

Look at the bright side - AIDS is a debilitating disease and the people who die of it are essentially skeletons by the time they assume room temperature. No obesity there.

Isn’t political correctness grand?

I think lesbians are fat because they either intentionally, or perhaps unconscienciously, seek to change their bodies to appear more male.

Lesbians seem to be either fat or boyishly thin & athletic. Since they’re not the conventionally feminine types, I wondered if hormones (too much testosterone) play a part.

I don’t think hormones necessarily determine orientation, though, since I’ve met “tomboys” (as well as effeminate men) in heterosexual relationships. Mostly likely abuse came into the picture somewhere, along with biochemical factors.

One of the most common statistical misunderstandings throughout the ages:

Confusing correlation with causation.

Maybe we should grab some skinny women, pay them to have intercourse with each other, and see if they gain weight. Or we could starve some male heteros and see if they get "light in the loafers".

Now there's TWO things you never ask a fat woman...

[[SEXUAL ORIENTATION & OBESITY [ Federal Study Concludes Being gay is a Health Risk ]]]

Wow- They’re just now findign that out? How many billions of dollars went into that study? Coiuld have just asked ANYONE on the street and they could have told you folks that for free- Not only is it dangerous for those who partake in that sin- but also to those who don’t that have to come into contact with htem, care for them, when they give blood without knowing if they are hiv positive- sharing needles on and on and on- but apparently it’s just okey dokey for htem to endanger other people’s lives, but not for smokers to smoek in their own homes because it ‘might lead to’ a health risk for osmone that might enter said home? (Californication to ban smoking in home in recent news) Gay people can walk all over san fraqnsico naked, dribblign hteir disease infested bodily liquids all over the city- posing health risks to EVERYONE- but people are no logner allowed to smoek in their own homes?

I've seen studies that put their life expectancy at 42.

Do you happen to remember what studies these were or how they might be found? I was trying to get decent life expectancy number comparisons for a variety of demographics recently, especially from scholarly studies, and have been completely unable to find numbers for homosexuals.

I have to wonder about the correlation. Are they fat because of some physical aspect of homosexuality (possible connection to the so-called “fat virus”), or are they fat because they’re “rebelling” against stereotypical body image pressures (don’t have to try to be thin for each other etc)?

They’re fat because they have to eat large amounts of fatty foods to get rid of the horrible after taste in their mouths from the canyon yelling.

Lesbians are fat because they are taking testosterone male homos are skinny because they are taking the female equivelant.

I can solve their time and extreme expense of Federal studies if they will send me $10,000 and the question for each one and I will provide the answer by return mail!!!

The milions those idiots spend on studies to simple questions is obscene!

I’m really kind of surprised they did this study ... because of the old principle of “don’t ask the question if you don’t want to know the answer.”

Okay, so WHY are the lesbians obese? Does lesbianism somehow make them fundamentally unhappy so they’re binge eating? (Ice cream, that is!) Alternatively, do lesbians have some sort of body chemistry misalignment such that they tend to become obese more easily? And if so ... does that mean that homosexuality, rather than being just a “variation” on humanity in the same way that blue, brown and green eyes are variations, is in fact a genetic defect?

And if that defect were to be cured, would homosexuality vanish? And would they *want* homosexuality to be cured, or would they be like some deaf parents who actually hope their kids will also be deaf so that they will stay within the deaf culture along with the parents?

Hm ... don’t ask questions if you’re not prepared for answers!

The study was several years back compiling ages from obituaries of homosexuals (it may have been limited to California).

I don’t see a bright side.

AIDS costs the taxpayer a boat load of money in treatment and fungible research dollars for a 99.999% preventable disease. The AIDS rate has not declined in the US - 45,000 new cases a year. And they are living longer at taxpayer expense. But these topics are verboten as AIDS is the only epidemic where those carrying the disease have the highest level of privacy rights of any disease.

Now to lesbians. The least likely group to contract AIDS are lesbians. Gay men wanted nothing to do with lesbian causes and refused to combine forces prior to the AIDS epidemic. After, they were happy to join forces and let lesbians campaign for them to get money and rights for their preventable disease. Maybe lesbians need to have their diminished intelligence studied. Why are they throwing in with gay men whose issues have nothing to do with them? They should be campaigning for breast cancer research dollars.

It is foolish to lump gays together. Male homosexuality is totally different than lesbianism - different in cause and effect.

Lesbianism is a social choice of women who often reject standards of beauty and female gender roles. Did this ridiculous study determine at what age the obesity began? I think there is a confusion of cause and effect.
