I found a place where we can make some cuts to the budget – we can start by not studying gay men’s penis size and its effect on their self-image. I can tell you without a study that the results will be the same as it would for a heterosexual. Let’s worry about it when we have money to burn.
We’re broke and 20% of the nation is unemployed, underemployed or has just plain given up, but that won’t stop scientific progress in the form of studying the effects of gay men’s penis size on their sexual life and well-being. NIH, that’s right, our government agency, has helped fund it and will continue to do so.
From Fox: The study reported, among its findings, that gay men with “below average penises” were more likely to assume a “bottom” sexual position, while those with “above average penises” were more likely to assume a “top” sexual position. Those with average penises identified themselves as “versatile” in the bedroom.
Though it’s difficult to trace exactly how much federal funding went to the project, the study was one of many linked to an $899,769 grant in 2006. The grant was administered by NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, and went first to a group called Public Health Solutions and a researcher with the National Development and Research Institutes before going to individual researchers.
Those researchers then compiled data from a survey of more than 1,000 gay and bisexual men at events in New York City for the gay community… Read here: NIH and the effects of gay men’s penis size study
Why don’t we study the well-being of people who can’t find jobs and put that information out there.
