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?

The PBS Newshour, which I love for telling me what to think and when to think it, had a piece yesterday about a black lesbian woman who claimed she couldn't get a mortgage because racist banks wouldn't lend to a black person. When her Japanese lesbian partner applied for a loan, however, she quickly got it.
Trump reportedly pleads with Congress to raise gas taxes on all Americans
In a closed door meeting President Trump repeatedly asked Congressmen to raise the gax tax. President Trump is so eager to raise taxes that he even volunteered to take the blame for it:
Is Trump well-served by saying "I'm totally opposed to domestic violence"?
When Richard Nixon said, "I am not a crook", what did most people think?
How many people did useless heart stents kill?
For years the "gold standard" for treating clogged arteries of the heart was to perform very invasive surgery to insert a small plastic tube, or stent, into the clogged artery to reduce the blockage. It sounds like common sense, doesn't it?
Why does replacing food stamps with food so anger liberals?
President Trump has proposed replacing some food stamp grants with actual food. This has curiously enraged liberals, who you would think would be delighted to see "hungry" people getting food. The program in question is called "SNAP", which I think, due to repeated accounts of fraud, is more appropriately called SUCK (Stealing Unearned Cash Knowingly).

Let's replace the words "Trump" with "Obama" in biased headlines
The liberal media, which bills itself as non-partisan, is running especially rabid now that President Trump has released his budget containing modest proposed cuts for certain agencies. Looking at the ferocity of the biased headlines, I wonder what the headlines would look like if Trump's name were replaced with Obama, as well as adjusting for circumstances.
Study: Immigration enforcement gives illegal aliens PTSD
Would it surprise you to learn that there is not just one or two but dozens of studies examining the psychological effects of enforcing the law against illegal aliens? Apparently, enforcing immigration law causes all kinds of effects on illegal aliens; it makes them anxious, depressed, and, according to one study, victims of post traumatic stress disorder.
New budget allocates no money for border wall for two years
In addition to being a an enormously bloated deficit busting spending bill, the two year budget that President Trump signed allocates zero dollars for construction of a border wall for the next two years. So unless Mexico suddenly writes us a check, there will be not an inch constructed of a new border wall three full years into President Trump's term of office.
Medicaid recipients find $1 premiums too confusing to pay
Imagine if you were poor and you got Medicaid, heavily subsidized by the taxpayer, but you had to pay between $1 and $15 a month in premiums. Wouldn't that be confusing? For many people it is so confusing that they don't understand how to pay and end up being kicked off Medicaid.
If Rand Paul were President, we wouldn't have this Democratic-inspired budget
Senator Rand Paul succeeded in briefly shutting down the government last night when he demanded a vote on restoring the budget spending caps before voting on the GOP deficit busting bill. By the time you read this, however, it is expected that a coalition of Democrats and RINO Republicans will have succeeded in passing a monstrosity of a budget bill which, although it will increase defense spending, will also increase domestic spending by hundreds of billions of dollars over the coming years, and is estimated to create a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit in 2019. That's $1,200,000,000,000 added to the debt in one year alone.

A GOP House, a GOP Senate, and a GOP President cannot cut a penny in spending
The budget agreement reached by the Republican House and Republican Senate would increase spending over 500 billion dollars over the next two years. It does not appear to cut a penny from domestic spending; in fact, along with military increases, it increases domestic spending by hundreds of billions of dollars.
White House calls for citizenship for "Lazy Dreamers"
One of the many conspiracy theories floating around to justify President Trump's call for citizenship for 1.8 million illegal aliens is that Trump will vet them thoroughly and permit a number far less than 1.8 million to be granted citizenship.
Would "Black Panther" have a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score if it were "White Panther"?
The liberal media is going ga-ga over the upcoming superhero movie "Black Panther". What makes Black Panther different from other Marvel films is that the protagonist, as well as most of the cast, are black, and Africa is portrayed as a super technologically advanced continent filled with spaceships. As of this writing the film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. What are the odds of every single film reviewer agreeing on this film... or any film?
