Are you fat? Well, maybe you should stop being so homophobic.
This is a scatterplot of U.S. religious groups, plotted by % of people that are obese (BMI 30+), and % of people that "agree" or "strongly disagree" with the statement "Same-sex relations are wrong."
Interesting. Looks like if you're homophobic, you're more likely to be fat. Homophobia seems to explain a quarter of the variance in obesity rates.
Ah, I knew it. It's clear that God hates homophobes, and is punishing them by making them fat. Or maybe God hates fat people, and punishes them by making them homophobic.
No, really. Anyone have an explanation for this homophobia-obesity connection?
I do. It's really simple.
Obesity is related to poverty. Poverty is related to low education. Low education is related to homophobia.
Low obesity is related to wealth. Wealth is related to high education. High education, to less homophobia.
It's the economy, stupid.
