While our nation heads in the wrong direction on every front, it shouldn’t be of any surprise when we hear of worthless endeavors that once again strips the working class of its money to give certain educators and researchers a purpose in life.
According to Jeffery Parsons, a professor with Hunter College, a research in 2009 called, “The Association Between Penis Size and Sexual Health Among Men Who Have Sex with Men”, was funded in “small part” with a 2006 $9.4 million 10 year grant that included the penis-size study. Parsons stated that the NIH funds were used to “analyze and write data” that had already been collected and that no funds were actually used in measuring penises.
According to foxnews.com:
The study reported, among its findings, that gay men with “below average penises” were more likely to assume a “bottom” sexual position, while those with “above average penises” were more likely to assume a “top” sexual position. Those with average penises identified themselves as “versatile” in the bedroom.
Though it’s difficult to trace exactly how much federal funding went to the project, the study was one of many linked to an $899,769 grant in 2006. The grant was administered by NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, and went first to a group called Public Health Solutions and a researcher with the National Development and Research Institutes before going to individual researchers.
Those researchers then compiled data from a survey of more than 1,000 gay and bisexual men at events in New York City for the gay community.
