“The Biden administration’s project to create transgender monkeys is in turmoil after a Free Beacon report exposed its existence,” the publication noted on Twitter. “The study’s head complained his research was ‘twisted and berated by people who are not qualified to judge its merit.'” Earlier, the Free Beacon reported:
The government-funded research project that created transgender monkeys is in turmoil after a Washington Free Beacon report exposed its existence, internal emails show.
Just days after the Free Beacon report on the study that injected male monkeys with female hormones, the study’s lead researcher “expressed concerns” about publishing the results because his or her name would appear on the final report, according to internal communications obtained by the Free Beacon through a Freedom of Information Act request. Professor Mauricio Martins, who heads the study for Scripps Research, informed the National Institutes of Health of the development in a Jan. 19 email, complaining that his monkey-based research to determine why transgender women have high rates of HIV was “being twisted and berated by people who are not qualified to judge its merit.”…
The emails are the latest example of public backlash derailing the Biden administration’s radical spending initiatives. After the Free Beacon exposed in February that the Biden administration was funding the distribution of crack pipes to promote racial equity, for example, the New York Times reported that the “uproar” over the program “derailed” the administration’s entire drug policy….
The initial Free Beacon report detailed how NIH-funded researchers at UF Scripps Biomedical Research injected male monkeys with feminizing hormone drugs to determine why transgender women have high rates of HIV. Researchers then tested the monkeys to determine if their immune systems were weakened in response to the simian immunodeficiency virus—the monkey equivalent of HIV.
