Quickies: Junk science, zombie butts, and juice
- The Heart Association’s junk science diet – “A recent Cambridge University analysis of 76 studies involving more than 650,000 people concluded, “The current evidence does not clearly support guidelines that [recommend]… low consumption of total saturated fats.”” From Mary.
- Sexual agency and zombie butts: Why Bob’s Burgers’ Tina Belcher matters – “Tina Belcher’s sexual desires are weird. They’re weird and more than a little off-putting and not meant to be particularly palatable for the average straight male viewer. And it is glorious to watch.”
- National Review writer: Liberals brainwash women to “cry rape” – From Arturo.
- This article is fortified with antioxidants – Will a juice with .3 percent pomegranate juice really “nourish your brain”? From cerberus40.
“If a friend jokingly comes up behind a girl and slaps her butt, that is, by today’s definitions, a sexual assault.”
Yeah. Fancy that. Sexually assaulting someone is, by definition, sexual assault. Never saw that coming. Funny how it works out.
The writer should probably actually read a book, or a web page, on the legal definitions, in various jurisdictions, of sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, rape and other terms. She would be surprised to find out how they are defined and how are punished.
“Men can now be shamed with the ‘sexual assault’ offender label for minor acts.”
Aww. Everybody feel sorry for the menz. They can’t go around grabbing boobs and slapping butts like they use to. (Actually, they can, but that’s a separate issue.)
Oh, also, “BACON! YAY!”
I did also submit a rather good response to Delgado’s nonsense by Amanda Marcotte: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/cafe/what-s-really-happening-with-rape-isn-t-brainwashing
Well, the AHA randomly suggested increasing carbohydrate intake to >60% of your total calories. Then excess carbohydrate intake was linked to lower HDL cholesterol, and insulin resistance was linked to heart attack.
It’s probably a mix of factors. There is no “eat as much as you want of this, shun that” diet that will always prevent ischemic events.
