And we pay these people! Researchers at the Common Sense Institute of Idiotville have discovered that binge-drinking New Yorkers have higher rates of HIV. You’ll never believe the remarkable findings:
“Thereâ€™s a wide body of evidence that shows the use of alcohol can lead to lowered inhibitions and impaired judgment,â€ said Sean Cahill, managing director of public policy, research and community health at the nonprofit Gay Menâ€™s Health Crisis.
…gay bars are a site of social interaction and a site of community,â€ [Cahill] said.
Thanks for that sparkling report, brilliant researchers! You can go back to burning piles of money now.
