[su_right_ad]George Mason University Professor Walter Williams says gays, like smokers, ought to be charged more for life insurance because of their “life-shortening lifestyle choice.”

Williams also stated: “According to the International Journal of Epidemiology, life expectancy at age 20 for homosexual and bisexual men is eight to 20 years less than for all men. That’s a lifestyle shortening of life expectancy greater than obesity and tobacco use. Yet one never hears of insurance companies advertising lower premiums for heterosexual men.”

However, reports that the study by the International Journal of Epidemiology is “decades old” (Vancouver, Canada in the late 1980s and early 1990s) and Williams “did not mention HIV or AIDS influenced the findings.”

    “life expectancy at age 20 for homosexual and bisexual men is eight to 20 years less than for all men.”

    Might have something to do with all the straight people beating and murdering them, or driving them to suicide. Just sayin’.

    what about beer guzzling fools with guns? double insurance. What about professors without credibility? triple and the count goes on – life insurance is an odd one – pay the premiums long enough and one will die. dats all!!
