A Johns Hopkins University study which began in 2012 has been granted nearly a half-million dollars in order to study the anal penetration of young blacks, which may or may not leave you feeling fiscally raped, depending on how financially conservative and/or sexually liberal you are.
All jokes aside, at a time when taxpayers are already so immensely burdened, I’m sure it’s safe to say that were they given the choice, the American people overwhelmingly would have chosen a better use for that $500K.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, the project in question is titled “First and Subsequent Same-Sex Sexual Satisfaction and Behavior in Young AAMSM (African-American men who have sex with men).”
The project synopsis claims:
“Prior work has demonstrated that same-sex relationship trajectories support the development of self-esteem in young gay and bisexual men, while opposite same-sex relationships may be associated with homonegativity.”
