Your tax dollars at work: $1.44 Million spent to study male prostitutes in Vietnam

The world's largest, most expensive whore house likes to fund research into prostitutes

Last year, we reported that congress had authorized $2.6 million to train Chinese hookers how to drink. Now we’re spending another $1.44 million to study male prostitutes in Vietnam.

You ask, “Why congress would fund so many research projects on prostitutes?” And we’d answer, “Professional courtesy.”

CNS News reports the screwed up story:

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has so far awarded $1.44 million in federal funds to a project that, among other things, is estimating the size of the population and examining the “social milieu” of male prostitutes in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

“In Study 1, formative ethnography will be used to describe the settings, venues, and overall social milieu in which male sex work is being situated,” says the NIH abstract for the grant. “In Study 2, we will conduct a Capture-Recapture Survey to estimate the size of the male sex worker population in each city.”

The grant project began in July 2008 and is scheduled to run through March 2012. In fiscal year 2008, the NIH awarded the project $534,201 in federal funds. In fiscal year 2009, the NIH awarded the project $465,974; and in fiscal year 2010, the NIH awarded the project $442,340. So far, a total of $1,442,515 in federal funds have been awarded to the project.

What are the odds that this research was funded while Larry Craig was still in office?

He is a former congressman who tapped his way into infamy at an airport’s bathroom. Look him up for a laugh.

Uhm… for the purpose of what? helping them not be prostitutes? learning conditions that lead to their prostitution so there wont be any NEW prostitutes or small number of new prostitutes? Is there a charitable reason involved here?

I am missing something. Studying something for the sake of studying something is best left on college campuses with private money. Studying something for the sake of studying something with my money is something that I am not okay with.
