$800K of stimulus goes to study African men washing their pee-pee's

Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program
Monday, September 13, 2010
By Matt Cover


(CNSNews.com) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.

The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.

“NIH Announces the Availability of Recovery Act Funds for Competitive Revision Applications,” the grant abstract states. “We propose to evaluate the feasibility of a post-coital genital hygiene study among men unwilling to be circumcised in Orange Farm, South Africa.”

Because AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision, the UCLA study proposes to determine whether researchers can develop an after-sex genitalia-washing regimen that they can then convince uncircumcised African men to follow.

“The aim of the proposed feasibility study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a post-coital male genital hygiene procedure, which participants will be asked to practice immediately post-coitus or at least 12 hours after,” reads the abstract.

Entitled “Community-Based HIV VCT: South Africa,” the name of the broader umbrella project, the program plans to test how well received the penis-washing regimen is among South African men.

If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the “penile cleansing procedure” actually works to prevent HIV infections.

“If we find that men are able to practice consistent washing practices after sex, we will plan to test whether this might protect men from becoming HIV infected in a later study,” the grant says.

The study’s lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents.

CNSNews.com asked both Coates and NIMH the following question: “The Census Bureau says the median household income in the United States is $52,000. How would you explain to the average American mom and dad -- who make $52,000 per year -- that taxing them to pay for this grant was justified?”

Coates, who was unavailable for comment, directed CNSNews.com to ask grant-related questions of his assistant, Darya Freedman, who did not respond.

The NIMH also declined to respond to CNSNews.com’s question.

Seriously, you can't make this chit up.

I think if we gave a Crocodile Dundee knife to Lorena Bobbit and told her those colored boys have been mean to their wives and gave her a $2 per pee pee redemption we wouldn't need a study.

Speaking on this practically, I wonder how many jobs they created with that $800k. I mean, I can pretend to give them the benefit of a doubt here that this program will create jobs, and that's what the stimulus bill is about. I wonder how many people will be taking home paychecks thanks to this program.

Not to deflect the discussion of public funds, but I figured most African men were circumcised. You read occasionally about their manhood rituals where they describe something that sure sounds like circumcision, but maybe that's only a small number of tribes or something.

And with that, you'll never read another post from me about African men's penises.

I like that we think someone else doesn't know how to clean his own pecker. And like soap is a great AIDS virus killer.

Future historians will look to posts 1-5, 7-9 and 11-13 of this thread as emblematic of why America stopped being great. The government funds a modest basic research project (that the free market can't do) attempting to address a humanitarian issue, and the consensus view is, and I'm going to put this charitably, isolationism.

Also,
Yes, Americans should be happy we are spending almost a million dollars to study how some savages in another country should wash their cocks when our own citizens are losing their homes and the poverty level is at an all time high.

But by all means view this as another buzzword issue instead of seeing it as an expression of the overall frustration of the American people at the mind-boggling amount of money wasted by the govt. on stimulus programs that do not help them.
