Ask Me Anything  

I am an artist, fatty, pro-choice feminist, movie lover, ISFJ, lifetime Southerner, fantasy/sci-fi nerd, animal lover, sex positive, queer positive, body acceptance activist, so expect to see all of that here. I'm also the creator and head moderator of FYeahVBO. Sometimes NSFW.

"Parents are two and a half times more likely to ask ‘Is my son gifted?’ than ‘Is my daughter gifted?’… Parents were more likely to ask about sons rather than daughters on every matter that I tested related to intelligence, including its absence… What concerns do parents disproportionately have for their daughters? Primarily, anything related to appearance… Parents are about twice as likely to ask how to get their daughters to lose weight as they are to ask how to get their sons to do the same. Google search data also tell us that mothers and fathers are more likely to wonder whether their daughter is ‘beautiful’ or ‘ugly’… The disturbing results outlined here leave us with many open questions, but the most poignant may be this one: How would American girls’ lives be different if parents were half as concerned with their bodies and twice as intrigued by their minds?
