Feds Still Studying Why Lesbians Are Obese | Washington Free Beacon

Their research found that lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and “mostly heterosexual” adolescents exercise one to two hours less a week compared to heterosexuals. The paper also said sexual minorities are 46 to 76 percent less likely to be on a sports team, due to “gender nonconformity and athletic self-esteem.”

Less likely than what?

Playing organized sports in school is an elite activity to begin with, and grows more elite the older you get.  And I further doubt these “scientists” have any idea who is gay and who isn’t in any sporting arena.

When I was in middle school, I lettered in swimming, and I hung with the jocks.  There were a lot of sorta effeminate guys who didn’t play sports because of the shit they’d have to take over their “queer” mannerisms.  All of them, as far as I know, were straight.

OTOH, at least two of my fellow swimmers ended up gay.  The just didn’t act like it or look like it.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
