Just another wonderful example of your tax-dollars at work. Or wasted, depending on your perspective.
This latest example of your hard earned money being used as improvised toilet paper (my deepest apologies to legitimate toilet paper), the federal government is spending $453,592 on “microeconomic intervention” includes providing transgender individuals with “supportive economic services, employment readiness and financial training, gender transition supports, and economics-based HIV education.”
And just to make sure skin color isn’t a factor, nowhere in the National Institutes of Health’s half-million dollar grant never focuses on special emphasis on any given race.
No… wait. Yes they do.
But for those with an XY chromosome willing to undergo a wangodectomy and get fake breast implants, there are three things they can absolutely count on, post-operative;
- The lifelong possibility of ever being diagnosed with prostate cancer
- The lifelong impossibility of ever being diagnosed with cervical cancer
- A tidy payout courtesy the American tax payer
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon;
The National Institutes of Health is spending over $450,000 to provide transgender women of color financial tips and “gender transition supports.”
Virginia Commonwealth University began the project last year, which studies “economically disadvantaged male-to-female” transgender individuals in Richmond, Va., and St. Louis, Mo.
“Transgender women (TGW) face persistent discrimination and structural disadvantages including high rates of unemployment, unstable housing, poverty, and dramatically elevated rates of HIV,” according to the grant for the study. “The proposed research, using a randomized experimental design, seeks to develop and test an integrated microeconomic intervention, and to assess the feasibility and efficacy of the intervention to improve the financial status of TGW and to reduce participation in high-risk income-generation strategies.”
The study will recruit transgender women as “key informants” to assess their “current experiences and preferences.”
The “microeconomic intervention” includes providing transgender individuals with “supportive economic services, employment readiness and financial training, gender transition supports, and economics-based HIV education.”
“It is estimated that TGW are three times as likely as the general population to be unemployed; four times as likely to be unstably housed; and twice as likely to be poor,” the grant states. “TGW of color especially experience these disadvantages.”
The study has received $453,592 from taxpayers. Research will continue through November 2020.
