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 24 year olds should be tried as kids but vote as adults


Liberals have been gradually watering down the criminal justice system.

Now in a new campaign, liberals are calling for 18 and 19 year olds and even people in their 20's to be charged as children, on the theory that their brains are not fully developed.

Why does Trump's Sanctuary City policy have no teeth?


As Rick Moran noted, President Trump's threat to cut off funding for Sanctuary Cities really about a slice of funding of a very small $27 million dollar pie, because only one federal grant program would be subject to this rule. In practice a major city might lose a five or six figure grant. But that's pocket change for big cities with budgets in the hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. I was surprised to learn that Trump's threat to "cut off" funding doesn't even apply to all Justice Department grants, just the ones in this one tiny program.
