Study Finds Marriage Equality Leads To Increased Health
Gay marriage is good for you, according to a new study published in The American Journal of Public Health.
A research team comprising six doctors arrived at this conclusion after tracking the visits of 1,211 gay men to a large community health clinic in Massachusetts for 12 months before and 12 months after gay marriage was legalized in that state. After marriage was legalized, they found that men visited the clinic less often, and with less costly ailments, than they had before. (Lesbians weren't included in the study, because they hardly ever visited the clinic anwyay.)
Weirdly, the results don't correlate with partnership status, suggesting that the health benefits of marriage equality extend even to those for whom marriage isn't an imminent prospect.
