Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Kids who are smarter than adults though.

Ok I am not a misandrist or anything, but I would never vote for a male running for president. Everyone knows their jobs are fixing cars and sinks, it just wouldn’t be plausible to think they could make the decisions for the country. And if they’re spending all their time trying to be politicians then who is gonna mow the lawns and move heavy things? I’m not belittling them, those jobs are important too but things work because everyone has their place!

i wish tumblr had more of a “educate the ignorant” attitude as opposed to “send death threats to the ignorant”

i love how this post was made by a cis white boy

I like how you completely ignored the message and instead focused on who posted it. :)

Don't... Please :(

Not sure which part of my post this is referring to… I’d already sh’d when I posted, but I’m not planning on dying. The “inviting death” part is kinda that I wouldn’t be fussed if I did die, but I don’t have any plans of suicide.

Anyway, thank you for your message, anon. I hope I didn’t worry you

Energy Expenditure (Calories Burned) in Anorexia Nervosa Patients

scienceofeds:

honestyisararity:


Slight issue with their measure of lean body weight… Surely this should have been calculated as a percentage of full body weight to control for that? How does the reader know that the greater amount of lean body weight in the higher exercising group is not purely down to the higher weight/bmi?

I’m not entirely clear about your issue? What exactly are you trying to control for?

The higher exercising group did not have a greater amount of lean body weight. (They showed that there were no statistically significant differences in BMI or LBM in between the higher exercising groups and the lower exercising groups, see Table 1 in the paper, at the bottom.)

BMI: 15.9 ± 1.2 (high exercisers) vs. 15.0 ± 0.85 (low exercisers)

Lean body mass (kg): 35.3 ± 5.1 (high exercisers) 33.5 ± 3.2 (low exercisers)

They calculated the resting energy expenditure and the total daily energy expenditure as a function of lean body mass (so the energy expenditure of 1kg of lean body mass tissue) and showed that it was significantly higher in the higher exercising group than in the lower exercising group (Table 2 in the paper, at the bottom).

REE adjusted for LBM (kJ*kg-1*24h-1): 146.0 ± 13.7 (high exercisers) 119.7 ± 12.6 (low exercisers)

Essentially what they are saying is that the higher REE in the higher exercising group is driven (at least in part) by higher metabolic needs of their lean body mass tissue.

I meant control for overall body mass. The bmi of the high exercisers was higher than that of the low. Assuming that they don’t differ in height (not mentioned in the article), then their weight would also be higher, meaning they would probably need more calories anyway. I just find that ratios are better to control for differences in overall weight: the lean body mass value really doesn’t mean anything without knowing the context of overall weight. It may be that shorter individuals were more likely to be high exercisers, which would mean a lower overall weight for the same bmi of somebody taller, and may mean a significant difference in lean body mass when this is taken into account. Or it may not. Basically, what I mean is that ratios tend to be more informative and better to compare across individuals.

Also, surely the high and low exercise split should have been based on amount of exercise rather than the motivation behind the exercise? Really unclear as to the authors’ justification for this.

Screwed up

Some self-harm mention, but on ipod so can’t do a read more.

I was angry, and so sick of being seen as a “little girl”. It was just a few pathetic scratches really, but the sting was the relief I wanted.

The people I was with today (parents and family friends) were getting upset because one of them is basically dying (he refuses to go to the doctor because he doesn’t want to know what it is) - he’s in his 70s, I think, and has been smoking and drinking heavily for years. It hit me that I’m desensitised to death, possibly because I’ve been inviting it for so many years.

Pity the living.
