We get a lot of bullshit emails on a daily basis. Here’s a sample from a recent missive from Witeck Combs:
When it comes to stress or depression during the holiday season, lesbians tend to feel both at higher levels than their heterosexual counterparts. In a new survey conducted by Harris Interactive, four out of five (80%) of lesbian adults say they tend to feel more stressed around the holidays while 64% of the heterosexual women surveyed said they tend to feel more stressed. Additionally, while half (51%) of lesbians said they tend to feel depressed around the holidays, only 36% of heterosexual women said they did.
The survey also indicates that smoking’s a “health factor” for lesbians. Astonishing!
Here’s a PDF of the study. It’ll blow your mind.
At a time when lesbian health care priorities are overlooked, understated or ignored by mainstream health leaders and organizations, it is disconcerting that a gay community blog dismisses lesbian health stresses and risks too. The findings in the survey highlight the gravity of the problem and underscore why the LGBT community should unite and respond to the health concerns of lesbians. Lesbians have certainly worked with gay men on issues from HIV to Crystal Meth so lets work together to make a difference in the lives of the lesbians and bisexual women.
