Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 17, 2018 | Elizabeth Harrington

The National Institutes of Health is spending over $100,000 studying elderly lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals who have Alzheimer's but do not have HIV.

The "novel investigation" is part of the "Rainbows of Aging" research being conducted by the University of California, San Francisco. The study began last month.

What the headline should say ....

Radical Liberals in Government, Reward Their Cronies in Education w/ Taxpayer Money for Useless Research Enabling the Schools and Professors the Chance to Make Money Off the Taxpayer With No Accountability and Setting Themselves Up for Jobs When They Retire From Government Service So They Can Take Advantage of The System and Use Their Connections to Get Even More Money Later.

subheadline could read .... And Maybe Get a Nice Kickback from the Professor and/or University.

It would be more honest if that’s what it said or something along those lines.

This is stupid. If you have Alzheimer’s, it doesn’t care if you’re gay or straight. It effects people the same. We need a cure for it.

That sounds like something somebody just made up to snag a grant by “studying” people he knew from the neighborhood.

well thats a thought. Maybe they forget to be perverts.
while alzheimers is a terrible disease, what difference does it make if you are gay or straight? waste of money.

What do old queers do? They can’t sodomize anybody anymore. If you can’t have perverted sex anymore, what’s the use of being queer?

Taking about throwing good money down a shithole! Like being a homosexual without aids has anything to do with Alzheimer’s. How using that money on a real blind test study that might actually prove something useful about Alzheimer’s.

Laughter cures everything;) Bookseller conducting a market survey asked a woman – “Which book has helped you most in your life?” The woman replied, “My husband’s check book.”

A prospective husband in a book store “Do you have a book called ‘Husband – the Master of the House?’" Sales girl: “Sir, fiction and comics are on the 1st floor.”

Someone asked an old man: “Even after 70 years, you still call your wife – darling, honey, luv. What’s the secret?" Old man: “I forgot her name and I’m scared to ask her."

Pharmacist to customer: “Sir, please understand, to buy an anti-depression pill you need a proper prescription...simply showing marriage certificate and wife’s picture is not enough.”

Cool message by a wife: Dear Mother-in-law, “Pease don't try and teach me how to handle my children. I am living with one of yours and he needs a lot of improvement.”

When a married man says, “ I will think about it ” - what he really means is that he doesn't know his wife's opinion yet.

A lady says to her doctor: "My husband has a habit of talking in his sleep! What should I give him to cure it?" The doctor replies: "Give him an opportunity to speak when he's awake!”.

HIV can cause dementia.

Lesbians have a high rate of polycystic ovary syndrome, with high testosterone levels and an increase of diabetes and obesity, so one might see dementia from these problems.

There also has been some discussions if certain viruses or bacteria can cause dementia, and some might be spread via sex etc.

Finally, the high rate of drug use in some gay populations.

I would have to read the article to see what they are looking for.

Or, they are basically studying why some gay men are still actually alive in their golden years and haven’t contracted HIV/AIDS. (Could it be those are the wee minority of the monogamous ones?)

The average gay man lifespan used to be cut short by an average of 20 years. Now with pharmaceuticals, it has been reported to be only 7 years shorter.
Since studying and reporting such realities is not PC, the later claim is not necessarily verifiable.
