WASHINGTON, DC – According to reports, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Dr. Anthony Fauci oversees, approved a grant of over $200,000 to have monkeys experimented on by giving them transgender hormones. These taxpayer funds to conduct such experiments is allegedly being done to “determine why transgender women have high rates of HIV.”
In December of 2021, Fauci’s agency doled out a $205,562 grant for fiscal year 2022 to Scripps Research for a study that aims to find out if the reason “transgender women” – who are biological males – have high rates of HIV infections has anything to do with the female hormones they take.
Per the NIH report’s “Public Health Relevance Statement”, this study will be accomplished by injecting male monkeys with female hormones to determine if that is the connection regarding HIV infection rates.
“This project will investigate whether feminizing hormone therapy (FHT) can contribute to the high incidence of HIV infection among transgender women. To that end, FHT will be modeled in male rhesus macaques to determine whether it increases the availability of HIV “target” cells in the gut mucosa and whether FHT interferes with a prophylactic immune intervention. Ultimately, this project will advance our understanding of the pharmacodynamics of FHT and how it affects immune responses in biological males.”
Strangely enough – this isn’t the first time the NIAID has awarded money for this very animal experimentation.
Scripps Research was also awarded $272,626 for the fiscal year 2021 for the same exact experiment.
In total, Scripps Research has managed to snag $478,188 in taxpayer dollars to inject male monkeys with female hormones in an effort to figure out just how exactly “transgender women” are presenting higher HIV infection rates.
Of course, it would be far too logical to simply take into account the lifestyles of these biological men and how they might play a role in them having high rates of HIV infections – considering that a 2015 study showed 13% of “transgender women” have engaged in prostitution and that the CDC notes “men who reported male-to-male sexual contact…accounted for 69%” of HIV cases.
Chances are, it’s not the hormones that are the problem when it comes to “transgender women” and HIV – it might just be the hooking and butt-stuff.
Even PETA neuroscientist Dr. Katherine Roe noted that there’s nothing beneficial that’s going to come from or be learned by injecting monkeys with hormones.
“It’s just bad science to suggest that dosing monkeys with feminizing medication makes them good stand-ins for humans. This study will not help to prevent or treat HIV and will not help transgender women.”
