Why the French pay too much in taxes

I know political science is sometimes criticized for its “science of the obvious” findings, but the following is breathtaking in its obviousness:
LONDON — Scientists say being fat can be bad for the bedroom, especially if you’re a woman.
In a new study, European researchers found obese women had more trouble finding a sexual partner than their normal-weight counterparts…
Experts interviewed more than 12,000 French men and women aged 18 to 69 about their sexual experiences and analyzed the results based on their Body Mass Index.
Obese women were 30 percent less likely than normal-weight women to have had a sexual partner in the last year.
Not all that surprisingly, obesity seemed to have not nearly the same negative impact on men. So, why give France a hard time?
The study was paid for by several French government agencies.
Seriously? The government needed to pay money to find out that obese women have sex less often?
