Our friends at the Free Beacon report the news that, despite the sequester, the federal government continues to be able to support important scientific research. The National Institutes of Health has been able to fund for another year a $2.2 million inquiry, begun in the fall of 2011, into why “women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic.” As reported at, the study has already “yielded one report, published in January, which found that gay and bisexual males had a ‘greater desire for toned muscles than completely and mostly heterosexual males.’ ” As a taxpayer, The Scrapbook is pleased to learn that we’re getting our money’s worth.
