Taxpayers drop $152,500 on 'voice therapy' for transsexuals

gabrielle-ludwig“Improving the lives of TG people who feel their voice is a great obstacle to living as their preferred gender…”

In the wake of the Obama Administration’s granting over a third of a million dollars to study the length of ducks penises, the federal government has just granted over $150,000 to study “voice therapy” for those who have undergone sex-change operations, as reported by the Cybercast News Service.

Despite the administration claim that there simply isn’t enough money in the federal budget to conduct tours of the White House or keep air traffic controllers on the job full time, the National Institutes of Health awarded  George Washington University $152,000 to research “the capabilities of the human larynx and inform the relationship between voice production and perception.”

The seemingly innocuous description belies the wording deeper into the text of the grant:

Trending: Good grief: FBI never saw full CrowdStrike report on the DNC server

The long term goal of this research is to inform and provide new directions for Transgender (TG) voice care, thereby improving the lives of TG people who feel their voice is a great obstacle to living as their preferred gender.

Officially entitled “Glottal Physiology and Gender Perception of Transgender Speakers,” the project information sheet can be found here.

As previously covered by Examiner.com, Yale University was granted $384,949 from the National Science Foundation for a study on the “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia.”
