A government-funded study utilizing your tax dollars has been paying underage teens, including gay and self-identifying “trans” kids, to report their sexual encounters without parental consent.

The study, conducted by Columbia University and funded by the National Institutes of Health to the tune of $8 million in tax-funded grants, asks gay and trans as young as 13 to document their sexual activity via an app called “MyPEEPS,” where the teens can earn up to $275 to document their sexual encounters including “condomless anal sex.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The NIH spent more than $300,000 to develop the app in 2012 and 2013, and $7.9 million since 2016 for Columbia researchers to study the data it collects, according to a government spending database. The app for “young men who have sex with men” provides “interactive games and activities” designed to teach participating teenagers how to minimize risk in their sex lives, according to the research grant and resulting study.

The app supposedly helps track and study HIV transmission between gay teens, and does not require parental permission for the minors to participate.

The disturbing study comes just a few months after Fairfax County Schools in Virginia, the state’s largest school district and one of the biggest in the entire country, garnered public backlash for asking children as young as 12 about their sex lives and hard drug use in a student survey given without parental consent.
