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.
The grant awarded to Old Dominion University will involve lesbians filling out daily diaries about their romantic relationships to determine what causes them to drink.
“Sexual minority women (i.e., women who self-identify as lesbian and bisexual) report more heavy drinking, more alcohol-related problems, and higher rates of alcohol use disorders as compared to heterosexual women,” according to the grant for the study. “Young sexual minority women are particularly vulnerable.”
Oh, I see. We can’t fix the VA so our Vets can get help, but we can afford to pay for a study on lesbian drinking. We just did one on fat lesbians. Now we’re doing drunk lesbians. Maybe lesbians are fat because they drink. There, and I did for free. What is the point of this?!
