The Nightmare Before Easter Open Thread - [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

I remember the first time my daughter saw Santa Clause at the mall. She was none too happy about it. And, when I took her to the circus for the first time, and she saw the clowns, she was similarly having nothing to do with them either. Yet, despite the occasional and jarring contact with the masked or make-up covered characters associated with Christmas or with the three-ring circus, I tried to keep her nightmares to a minimum.

I wish I could say the same of these parents.

26 Since Ace isn't around to re-post Hoy Air content, let's be kind and do it for him!

Masculine boys and feminine girls are more likely to engage in cancer-risk behaviors

http://tinyurl.com/l6ljqfm

"Young people who conform most strongly to norms of masculinity and femininity—the most “feminine” girls and the most “masculine” boys—are significantly more likely than their peers to engage in behaviors that pose cancer risks, according to a new study led by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers. The most feminine teenage girls use tanning beds more frequently and are more likely to be physically inactive, while the most masculine teenage boys are more likely to use chewing tobacco and to smoke cigars, compared with their gender-nonconforming peers.

The study, the first to look at cancer risk behaviors in teens based on their gender expression, appears online April 16, 2014 in Journal of Adolescent Health.

“Our findings indicate that socially constructed ideas of masculinity and femininity heavily influence teens’ behaviors and put them at increased risk for cancer. Though there is nothing inherently masculine about chewing tobacco, or inherently feminine about using a tanning booth, these industries have convinced some teens that these behaviors are a way to express their masculinity or femininity,” said lead author Andrea Roberts, research associate in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at HSPH."

My comment there (First!) about sums it up:

"More inane balderdash from Progressive Lysenkoists trying to “prove” that cis-gendered normalcy is in fact pathological.

Yes, better dress your boys in tutus and give your girls testosterone injections to save them from the dreaded cancer!

I started going gray in my 20's. My grays are so stubborn that the colorist has to put me under the dryer for about 20 minutes in order to open up the cuticle. I keep saying that, some day, I'm going to have him strip away the color and go natural.

"Some day" has not yet arrived.

If you do decide to go natural, check with a good stylist for options. You might not have to endure the awkwardness of growing it out.

59 grammie winger, ONE time I colored my hair. the lady at the drugstore helped me pick a nice "natural" color. well, didn't I just have hair the color of an orange popsicle the next day! my mom toned it down (she was a dedicated colorer of her own hair), but then I just let it grow out. Still have pics somewhere of that line of demarcation getting farther and farther down, until I could cut off the icky part. Not that much fun! But, once it's done, you are FREE of all that time-consuming pita thing you have to do every 3 weeks and I bet it will look great!

62 Not to rain in anyones Easter parade, but...

I once knew an old Jewish lady for whom Easter was the Worst Day of the Year. Why? Back in the Old Country -- the "Pale of Settlement" in what is now called "Ukraine," Easter was the traditional day for anti-Semitic progroms and ethnic cleansing, as medieval-mentalitied Russian villagers would punish the Jew for killing you-know-who on that day. She saw many a relative and neighbor killed on distant Easters past.

Now safe in modern America, many decades later, every Easter she'd still draw all the curtains and sit in the dark, praying to be spared, occasionally peeking outside to look for torch-carrying mobs.

Yes, my Mom thought I enjoyed both Santa and the Easter Bunny. They seemed important to her so I just kind of went along. As a child, I was really super considerate....

The only thing I really enjoyed were petting zoos that they occasionally had a the mall. Mom had a great story about a goat eating my coat. Which I kind of remember, but honestly, I was busy feeding the other animals. How was I supposed to know that a goat was eating my coat?

And it looks like another cycle may be starting, thanks in no small part to Obama's incompetence or upbringing, although I think it is a bit of both.

There used to be a steam railroad that ran from my hometown to about ten miles to the north and back.

They ran a Christmas train on which Santa would board at the end of the line and then ride back to town and meet all the kiddies.

My Dad knew the guy playing El Claus-o and was heard by one of my younger brothers greeting Dad by his first name. That may have marked the beginning of the end for his belief in the "jolly old elf".

97 "Young people who conform most strongly to norms of masculinity and
femininity—the most 'feminine' girls and the most 'masculine' boys—are
significantly more likely than their peers to engage in behaviors that
pose cancer risks, according to a new study led by Harvard School of
Public Health (HSPH) researchers."

Meanwhile, here in the SF Bay Area, the public health authorities are always pounding the drums of alarm because of the disprortionately high rates of smoking and alcohol and drug abuse in the adult GLBT-OMG-WTF population. Also over the massive venereal infection rates in the local gay male community.

So, er, which is it? Is being straight a health risk factor, or is being gay?

Or are all these expensive epidemiological studies on the taxpayer's dime just a load of dingo's kidneys?

101 I need to make Easter baskets for my monkeys and iron clothes for tomorrow before I polish off this bottle of malbec I've been working on. Ironing may be dangerous.

102 Some of the Easter Bunnies look like serial killers and some look aliens from horror films. The picture that has the boy with the red jacket and blue baseball cap makes the bunny look like he'd had too much of the funny grass while he was delivering eggs and would be too stoned to do any real damage.

Creepy, yes..

Ironing in general is dangerous. Although Malbec is a good choice.

Seriously, the sunset is fabulous.

I know, right? Last month my daughter had a birthday. I took the grands shopping for a present for her, and the four year old said she wanted to " get mama one of those smoothing-clothes things like they have on tv!"

What are you, trans-phobic or something? We must find answers to these crucial questions facing our society. I am heartened to hear that $1.5 million of taxpayer money is being expended to find out why lesbians are overweight.

121 Grammie, I think white hair looks great, especially with a tan and some make-up. Are you a Judi Dench fan, as in the Brticom "As Time Goes By"? Her hair is gray and white, and also really short, a pixie cut, but she looks great. That could be a solution for growing it out. Go short for a while.

Posted by: Emily at April 19, 2014 08:09 PM (7Rn+/)

Oh yes, she looks fabulous. Thankfully, my hair is fairly short so maybe it won't take too long to make the transformation.

125 Zombie, a few nights ago you talked about being a serial entrepreneur. I wanted to ask you whether you have any tips about dealing with the compliance and paperwork side of things. I find it intimidating, and I suspect I'm not alone. Would be grateful for links or words of wisdom.

127 So, er, which is it? Is being straight a health risk factor, or is being gay?

There is no single "health risk", but multiple different risks and behaviors that enhance or diminish them.

Honestly, the study is not that upsetting. Girly girls are more likely to tan and expose themselves to the possibility of skin cancer. Quell horror! Masculine men are more likely to smoke cigars or dip and get oral cancer. Knock me over with a feather.
