The results showed that both boys and girls were able to crawl the same degree of incline. However, the predictions of the mothers were correct within one degree for the boys and underestimated their daughter’s ability by nine degrees.
What this shows is that the presumption that boys are more physical causes parents to encourage their boys more in physical activities while cautioning their girls. This further translates into providing more opportunities for boys to be physical and fewer for girls. The result?
Boys actually do develop stronger physical skills than girls. But not because of anything innate or biological, but rather because of the gender roles that the parents subconsciously projected onto their babies. —

Anonymous asked: I think you're allowed to do giveaways, you just can't say like "you have to be following me to enter" or something like that. The email on that post said they were doing promotional stuff. I'm not 100% though. Might need to read the tumblr terms again. :)
Yeah, unfortunately, that also links to this: http://www.tumblr.com/policy/en/contest_guidelines
The real killers of this are the fact that people have to be 18+ and that people can only do giveaways within their own country (Great Britain for me). Also, you’re apparently not allowed to use likes/reblogs as a method of entry?
As per our community guideline against non-genuine social gesture schemes, don’t use Tumblr’s social features (like following, reblogging, and liking) as entry methods.
And unfortunately this seems to also apply even when you do a giveaway off-site and link it back to tumblr:
Communicating on Tumblr about a contest, sweepstakes, or giveaway that happens off-site is generally OK (but make sure to provide all the information you need to, as noted above).
I mean, I see massive giveways that break these rules all the time, so it kind of baffles me that someone had their much smaller giveaway taken down over it. But I’m not sure I want to risk it given that my blog has a lot of haters that would probably report me. 8[
One thing I might do is do a giveaway on the podcast instead or something when I reach 2000 followers, or maybe twitter. It would significantly narrow the pool of entrants but I don’t want to give up on the idea entirely. Idk.
So my birthday giveaway post was deleted.
Sorry to anyone who followed me for the giveaway, and everyone who was excited for the winner announcement—turns out Tumblr deleted my post. The email I got is under the read more.
Again, sorry it’s not happening but apparently nice things aren’t allowed here yo.
people do bigger giveaways all the time. what is this bullshit, are you shitting me???
Aw, there goes my plans for a giveaway when I hit 2000 followers. I was going to spend like $50 on RT stuff for a giveaway for my followers. But apparently you’re not allowed to do that. 8/
Anonymous asked: Oh okay. Yeah, I've personally always made sure that I only drink around close friends that I trust, around my partners, or around people that I know when I'm sober i would willingly have sex with.
That’s a sensible attitude to have! Just a casual mention that it goes both ways and that it’s important to ensure that your partner/s would also willingly have sex with you when sober too! :)
Anonymous asked: You tagged rape with no trigger warning and I'm offended
Tagging ‘rape’ is the trigger warning???
Anonymous asked: I kinda agree with an earlier anon who said they've had sex while drunk but they considered it consensual. Tbh I feel like it's a gray area. Which sounds horrible wow i'm sorry. But I feel the same way. I've had sex with people while drunk but I knew that I would have sex with them whether I was drunk or sober. Does that make sense? I'm sorry, I don't really know how to word this properly. But do you understand what I'm trying to say?
I understand what you’re trying to say. I’d personally caution people against having sex whilst drunk (with strangers and/or people you don’t know very well). I think it’s a bit different when you’re with a long term partner who you already have a sexual relationship with. But yes, if they won’t have sex with you sober, don’t get them drunk and try again. That’s basically what I’m getting at here.
Anonymous asked: "50 nos and a yes means yes" is a quote from Family Guy where they were shaming James Bond for pressuring women into having sex with him.
Great, still doesn’t make the anon any less shitty for leaving it in my inbox. Especially given that they seemed to agree with the quote.
