When science is funded by the government, it becomes ideological. That is to say, it goes insane. For example, the National Institutes of Health has so far spent $347,176 of our money on a study that will match lesbians with the most “sexually acceptable” method of birth control, “thereby helping women fully realize the social, economic, and health benefits” of keeping babies away. No really:
The leading researcher on the project is Jenny Higgins, an associate professor in the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Higgins specializes in “mixed-methods research on sexuality, gender, and reproductive health—especially people’s use of condoms and other contraceptive methods.”
She actually makes a living at this — probably a cushy one.
Higgins is also currently involved with research into sexual minority women, or “people who identify as lesbian, bisexual and queer (among many other things).” She claims 20 percent of the female population in the United States are lesbians or bisexual.
Come back next year and it will be 30%. These days, researchers are paid to fabricate any agenda-supporting facts that the public will at least conceivably swallow. Refer to the study of climate change for more on this topic.
“The overwhelming majority of SMW [sexual minority women] will engage [in] penile-vaginal intercourse at least occasionally,” according to the researcher’s website. “New research suggests that SMW women have an increased risk of unintended pregnancy compared to their heterosexual peers.”
The study is examining “unique barriers” lesbians and bisexuals have to “adequate contraceptive care.”
Here I was thinking that the one good thing about being a lesbian is that at least they don’t need birth control.
Maybe the bureaucrat who authorized the grant misread “birth control” as “girth control,” which is more in need in the lesbian community.
