Johns Hopkins University is conducting a four-year, government granted study, which began in 2012, examining the “meaning and function” of first “penetrative same-sex sexual experiences” of ‘adolescent’ black men, with ‘adult’ black men.
The study is being conducted at Johns Hopkins in the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Institute of Child Health & Human Development, and so far, the ‘study’ has been granted half a million dollars.
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 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.
Elsewhere in the synopsis…
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.
These people are using hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to 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. How can our government grant taxpayer money to a study where “adolescent men” are having sex with grown men. There are laws against adults having sex with minor children, even if those kids are euphemistically called “adolescent men.” I don’t even want to think about the moderators of the ‘study.’
The Obama Administration did not need to spend taxpayer money on this ‘study’ when logic dictates that men, or boys who have sex with other men are, in overwhelming measure, particularly vulnerable to contracting HIV. Furthermore, “improving sexual health” of these adolescents will never happen as long as they choose to engage in unnatural, dangerous sexual behavior. (HT Barbwire)
