Study: bouncing breasts deter girls from sports


A "study" was needed to determine why girls participate less in sports than boys do. The apparent answer? Large breasts, and an unfamiliarity with sports bras.

why aren’t more teenage girls out on the playing fields?

A recent study in The Journal of Adolescent Health found a surprisingly common reason: developing breasts, and girls’ attitudes about them.

In a survey of 2,089 English schoolgirls ages 11 to 18, nearly three-quarters listed at least one breast-related concern regarding exercise and sports. They thought their breasts were too big or too small, too bouncy or bound too tightly in an ill-fitting bra.

“We make assumptions about what we think we know, so it’s important to be able to say that as cup size increases, physical activity decreases for a lot of girls,” Dr. Sharonda Alston Taylor, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas, who focuses on adolescent obesity.

Joanna Scurr, the lead author of the study and a professor of biomechanics at the University of Portsmouth in England, said the breast itself had little internal support, so when a girl’s body moved, the breast moved independently, and the movement increased with breast size.

It's good we have studies like this to tell us that breasts bounce.

Only 10 percent of the girls surveyed said they always wore a sports bra during sports and exercise. More than half had never worn one.

Dr. Taylor said that lack of education about bra fitting and sizing was commonplace in her practice.

“The mom will say, ‘I don’t know what size she is,’ and the patient will say, ‘I just grab my sister’s or my mother’s bras to wear.’”

That's it! Girls have never heard of sports bras. We need a government program to educate them about it.

Using data from this study and others, the researchers from sports and exercise health departments at three British universities are trying to design school-based educational programs.

See? They want a government program! You thought I was joking!

Why is this a "problem" in need of an answer? Maybe girls simply don't want to do sports as much as men do. Why must boys and girls do everything in equal amounts?

Liberals say blacks too dumb to realize they have voter IDs


Liberals used to claim that voter ID laws discriminated against minorities because they didn't have ID's. Black people, you see, never go to doctor's offices, never buy beer, never get a library car, never go to a hotel or rent a car or do any of the many things we all need photo ID's for.
But now liberals have a new talking point: blacks have voter ID's, but are too dumb to realize that they have them, therefore voter ID laws are still racist.
