A Johns Hopkins University study which began in 2012 has been granted nearly a half-million dollars dedicated to study the anal penetration of young black men.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, the project is titled, “First and Subsequent Same-Sex Sexual Satisfaction and Behavior in Young AAMSM (African-American men who have sex with men).”
The four-year study, being conducted by Johns Hopkins University, is examining the “meaning and function” of first “penetrative same-sex sexual experiences.”
At a time when taxpayers are suffering from high taxes, and the rising cost of living, not to mention a deficit that has future generals bankrupt, the American people overwhelmingly would have chosen a better use for that $500K.
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. Little is known about the meaning and function of first same-sex experience in AA adolescent men and whether satisfaction with first penetrative same-sex experience impacts sexual trajectories. The goal of this project is to understand the meaning and function of first same-sex sexual experience and to prospectively be able to assess its impact on subsequent sexual experiences, young adult sexual health and health protective behaviors.
The long-term goals of the candidate are to become an independent investigator focused on improving the sexual health (including prevention of HIV) of AA young MSM. AA MSM struggle with a sexual identity that is stigmatized in their communities, along with discrimination, and racism. As a result, first romantic and sexual experiences are likely to differ from other adolescent groups in ways that make them particularly vulnerable to HIV.
Gina Miller with Barbwire said that these people are using hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to recruit and study the anal sex experience of homosexual black male adolescents, which the study calls “adolescent men,” a contradictory name if I’ve ever heard one. This is not about men. It’s about boys. The study is being conducted at Johns Hopkins in the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Institute of Child Health & Human Development. I wonder if they are going to report to authorities those “adolescent men” whose sex partners are grown men. After all, there are laws against adults having sex with minor children, even if those kids are euphemistically called “adolescent men.”’
American taxpayers have never experienced more wasteful spending of their hard earned money than under the Obama administration.
