Good grief. Make this your must read of the day.
- The National Institutes of Health has spent millions of dollars over the past decade to fund the construction of an HIV-prevention website that, among other sexually explicit features, includes a graphic image of homosexual sex and a Space Invaders-style interactive game that uses a penis-shaped blaster to shoot down gay epithets.
- The federal government is spending $423,500 to find out why men don’t like to wear condoms, a project government watchdogs say is a nearly-half-a-million-dollar waste of taxpayer money.
There are literally thousands more of such studies out there. All funded by the NIH. The gay porn website, fat lesbian research and condom research if applied to Ebola would have increased the research funding by 10%.
The problem isn’t that there is a lot of rather bizarre research going on, the problem is that it is institutionalized.
