Obesity Has a Sexual Preference
To date, it has cost the US taxpayer 3.5 million dollars, but, by golly, they are making progress. According to MRC TV :
"A U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) study to understand why lesbians are fat has now cost taxpayers over $3.5 million to-date.
The study, “Sexual Orientation and Obesity: A Test of a Gendered Biopsychosocial Model,” seeks to determine why there is a disparity in the obesity rates between straight women and lesbian women and straight men and gay men.
According to the study, “It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese, compared to half of heterosexual women. In stark contrast, among men, heterosexual males have nearly double the risk of obesity compared to gay males.”"
So gay women and straight men tend toward lardassery. This is important I suppose, especially to the actuaries and rate setters in the health insurance industry. I mean, how can we keep "Affordable Health Care ", i.e, "Obama Care", affordable if lesbians and white male couch potatoes are not cooperating?
In light of this problem, I am going to suggest a lesbian tax to fight this issue. Every lesbian that is two or more points over their appropriate BMI should pay an extra 15% income tax to compensate for their abuse of the health care system.
I am going to suggest further that white male heterosexuals be given a 15% reduction in their taxes to compensate for how they have been robbed blind for the last 50 years. My thought is, if they have money, they will get up off the couch and do something besides watch TV. They can take their straight fat wives to the mall and do a little shopping. All that walking is bound to help their weight issue.
Some will say this is not fair.
