I disagree with this because my intersex disorder (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) is not a different sex. My diagnosis is specific to the presentation and symptoms expressed in a female body. Many intersex diagnoses - including Klinefelter’s, Turner’s, and hypospadias - continue to resemble our birth sex without confusion. If you disagree with this, you’re denying how variations on human sexual dimorphism cause significant problems to our health and fertility. Disorders of sex development reveal variation, not deliberate and distinct categories. If you read the archives of intersex advocacy organizations like OII or ISNA, we strongly reject being othered as fake males and females. Your ableist approach to erasing our chromosomal and phenotypic abnormalities to mark us separate but equal is not shared by the intersex community, medical professionals, or intersex activists.  Dr. Leonard Sax wrote, “This type of extreme social constructionism is confusing and is not helpful to clinicians, to their patients, or to their patients’ families. Diluting the term intersex to include “any deviation from the Platonic ideal of sexual dimorphism” (Blackless et al., 2000, p. 152), deprives the term of any clinically useful meaning. The available data support the conclusion that human sexuality is a dichotomy, not a continuum. More than 99.98% of humans are either male or female. If the term intersex is to retain any clinical meaning, the use of this term should be restricted to those conditions in which chromosomal sex is inconsistent with phenotypic sex, or in which the phenotype is not classifiable as either male or female. The birth of an intersex child, far from being ‘a fairly common phenomenon,’ is actually a rare event, occurring in fewer than 2 out of every 10,000 births.” The Intersex Society of North America rejected raising intersex babies as a third sex with this statement: “Sorry, gender warriors… We believe there are two problems with trying to raise kids in a ‘third gender.’ First, how would we decide who would count in the ‘third gender’? How would we decide where to cut off the category of male and begin the category of intersex, or, on the other side of the spectrum, where to cut off the category of intersex to begin the category of female? Second, and much more importantly, we are trying to make the world a safe place for intersexed kids, and we don’t think labeling them with a gender category that in essence doesn’t exist would help them.” Your flag is a lie. “Having two arms is a lie and if you disagree with this you’re saying that people with birth defects that give them additional limbs don’t have a right to exist!” What the fuck kind of logic is that?

HOW TO MAKE YOUR PLANTAR FASCIA STRONGER Plantar fasciitis is kind of a misnomer. The -itis implies 🔥 inflammation, but it actually is much more like a tendinopathy, which has little to no inflammation at all. Good thing is, it responds much the same way as well. Both ↔ stretching and ⛃ loading are good options for your rehab. The stretch shown here is a good option as are the ones I posted the other day. But today, let's focus on loading because while both options can get rid of pain, only loading is going to build long term resiliency. In this 📊 study by Rathleff et al, they compared loading to stretching. The loading group did this single leg calf raise variation with the following protocol. . 🔹3 seconds up on two feet. 2 second hold at the top. And 3 seconds down on 1 foot. 🔸Week 1 - 3 sets of 12 reps 🔸Weeks 2 & 3 - 4 sets of 10 reps 🔸Weeks 4+ - 5 sets of 8 reps They added weight via a backpack loaded with books, but holding a heavy kettlebell or dumbbell would work as well. Just make sure you're having to work. In addition to this, you need to ⤵ back off on whatever bothers your foot. Nothing heals if you continue to pick the scab. Take it easy, get 💪 stronger, and build back up SLOWLY. You'll come back more resilient and better than ever. Tag a friend with plantar fasciitis and share the wealth!

Pelo amor de Deus! O povo ainda faz essas coisas. Me desculpem os envolvidos no vídeo, não quero fazer piada com a dança e muito menos com a cultura russa (aliás, a Rússia é um dos lugares mais legais e os russos um dos povos mais legais que já conheci), mas acredito que o humor ajude a ensinar algumas coisas. . . Um primeiro ponto que todos devem saber é o risco envolvido nisso. Ao deslocar o peso para ponta dos pés há maior compressão patelofemoral (Ho et al., 2012), com aumento do desgaste, o que acentua as dores nos joelhos e agrava quadros conhecidos e temidos pelas mulheres, como a condromalácia. Além disso, ao agachar na ponta dos pés, tensão do ligamento cruzado anterior chega a ser multiplicada por três (Toutoungi et al., 2000)!!! Para piorar, fazer essa variação não tem nenhum sentido do ponto de vista lógico! O quadríceps se insere na tíbia (osso da canela), mesmo osso onde os posteriores de coxa se inserem. Então me responda como diabos uma mudança na articulação do tornozelo mudaria a ação de um músculo que está inserido um palmo acima do local?? E não para por aí, se você olhar a planta do seu pé, verá que ela tem uma forma e estruturas criadas para receber as cargas, isso inclui seu calcanhar e a lateral do pé! Se o Criador quisesse que recebêssemos carga nas pontas dos pés, acho que teria nos dados cascos, como nos cavalos e jumentos! . . E não venha com esse papinho de “avançado”, a menos que você tenha ganhado joelho de adamantium ou tenha o quadríceps inserido no pé, essa variação vai ser arriscada e ineficiente. Além disso, fazer agachamento na ponta do pé com barra guiada é coisa de mirim, harcore mesmo é fazer a dança dos cossacos! . .

WE'VE DISCOVERED A NEW MUSCLE! Traditional models of the quadriceps have forever shown 4 muscles: . 🔼Rectus Femoris 🔼Vastus Lateralis (VL) 🔼Vastus Intermedius (VI) 🔼Vastus Medialis Obliquus (VMO) . But in 2016 a study by Grob et al., the researchers discovered and named a 5th muscle in the quadriceps group 😲, the TENSOR OF VASTUS INTERMEDIUS. The study dissected 26 cadavers and, in each one, they found the 5th quadriceps muscle. They also found that there were 4 types depending on where the tendon fused: Independent type, VI type, VL type, and Common type. There was also a variation found with two muscle bellies as you can see above. It originates on the front of the greater trochanter of the femur with a small muscle belly and then extends a long tendon that joins into the 🕸 fascia between the VI and VL before layering deep into the quad tendon. The function of the muscle is not fully known yet, but what we do know is that it tenses the distal tendon of the VI and makes the VI line of pull to be more towards the ↗↖ midline like that of the VMO.

Fiquei surpreso com o mimimi gerado pelo post sobre anticoncepcionais, mas o fato é que não há evidências para sugerir que o uso de anticoncepcionais impeça de ter um bom “shape”. Sobre possível diminuição de testosterona, é improvável que pequenas variações tenham relevância ESTÉTICA. Além disso, há estudos mostrando que a progesterona tem efeito anabólico similar à testosterona (Smith et al., 2014), ou seja, ela poderia suprir o prejuízo de uma eventual baixa de testosterona EM TERMOS DE SÍNTESE PROTÉICA. Apesar de estudos mostrarem que um pequeno percentual de pessoas pode ter reações negativas, culpar o anticoncepcional sem olhar treino e dieta é burrice. Estamos em tempos de Ortopedia que deixa as mulheres com a cara quadrada, Ortomolecular que deixa velhinho bombado, Nutrologia que passa HCG, Oftalmologia do tapete mágico hormonal, Cirurgia plástica que mistura pregação religiosa e oxandrolona... Os multifunções abominam os anticoncepcionais, mas enchem as mulheres de hormônios masculinos!? Para defender o indefensável, citam estudos como o de Savage & Clarkson (2002), que comparou a recuperação da força isométrica antes e após 50 ações excêntricas máximas (algo tão irreal que deixou elas detonadas por vários dias). Os resultados indicam recuperação mais lenta em quem tomava anticoncepcional...e daí? Desde quando eu posso assegurar a recuperação da força isométrica gera comprometimento na hipertrofia? Aliás, se houve mais microlesões, isso pode estar associado ao ganho de massa muscular, aumento do metabolismo e maior utilização de gordura (Dolezal et al., 2002; Paschalis et al., 2011). Além disso, no estudo da Savage & Clarkson, as usuárias de anticoncepcional eram quase 30% mais fortes que as não usuárias. Por que não falam isso? Outro coisa é que as mesmas autoras têm um estudo que não encontrou prejuízo na recuperação em usuárias de anticoncepcional (Thompson et al., 1997). Enfim, é melhor ficar em textos “filosóficos” e vender manipulados para engrossar voz das moças, pois quando esse povo fala de Ciência, só engana quem é muuuito devagar das ideias ;-) Ah, e quem que acha que isso é apologia ao uso ou negação dos riscos... vai para inferno!: ANTICONCEPCIONALNAO PODE! @drpaulogentil MAS BOMBA E DE BOA Fiquei surpreso com o mimimi gerado pelo post sobre anticoncepcionais, mas o fato é que não há evidências para sugerir que o uso de anticoncepcionais impeça de ter um bom “shape”.

Na verdade, eu achava que nem era sério. Achava que a galera tinha ficado nessa posição apenas para tirar a foto ou fazer filmagem. Aquela velha história de ficar mais fotogênico, sabe? Mas temos que pensar em 4 pontos: 1 - já batemos várias vezes na tecla que os melhores ângulos de trabalho são os de maior amplitude e ao fazer o exercício dessa forma, fica impossível realizar o movimento adequadamente. 2 - durante o agachamento, naturalmente o joelho deve avançar um pouco à frente da linha dos pés para equilibrar o centro de gravidade. Caso isso não ocorra, aumenta-se a curvatura da coluna especialmente na região torácica e lombar, com uma sobrecarga perigosa na região (List et al., 2012). Aliás, isso pode ser visto facilmente no vídeo! 3 - a cervical fica em uma posição desconfortável, causando hiperextensão e-ou obrigando a cabeça a girar. Em ambos os casos isso leva a um mal alinhamento, tornando o movimento potencialmente perigoso. 4 - a máquina tem um bendito encosto para as COSTAS, por que é tão difícil aceitar isso? Pior é ver o povo dizendo que irá isolar posterior, o que seria impossível pelo fato de haver considerável extensão de joelhos. Ah, pior mesmo será ver os defensores do absurdo e especialistas em esperneio pseudocientífico alegarem que isso é movimento bom bagarai porque há um equipamento que lembra minimamente isso usado no futebol americano. Isso é genial!! Em primeiro lugar a máquina deles foi criada para isso, ou seja, tem ajustes biomecânicos que permitem o movimento. Em segundo, existe o princípio da especificidade e eles precisam empurrar oponentes nessa posição. Em terceiro, existe custo-benefício de modo que não deveríamos nos expor (ou ser expostos) a risco em um exercício cuja eficiência é questionável. Por último, existe o senso de ridículo, né caceta!?

Isso é genial!! Em primeiro lugar a máquina deles foi criada para isso, ou seja, tem ajustes biomecânicos que permitem o movimento. Em segundo, existe o princípio da especificidade e eles precisam empurrar oponentes nessa posição. Em terceiro, existe custo-benefício de modo que não deveríamos nos expor (ou ser expostos) a risco em um exercício cuja eficiência é questionável. Por último, existe o senso de ridículo, né caceta!?

10 JAN: Astronomers have discovered what happens when the eruption from a supermassive black hole is swept up by the collision and merger of two galaxy clusters. This composite image contains X-rays from Chandra (blue), radio emission from the GMRT (red), and optical data from Subaru (red, green, and blue) of the colliding galaxy clusters called Abell 3411 and Abell 3412. These and other telescopes were used to analyse how the combination of these two powerful phenomena can create an extraordinary cosmic particle accelerator.

Power of Gaming (Part 2): We all know gamers are the Master Race! Part 2) Here are some more facts: 1. Gamers have an improved eye-hand coordination compared to non-gamers Griffith, Voloschin, Gibb & Bailey, 1983 2. The relation between gaming and violent behaviour is highly overestimated (Ferguson & Kilburn, 2010) 3. Gamers are better at following multiple objects, due to better visual short-term memory skills (C.S. Green, D. Bavelier, 2006) 4. Surgeons who game, are likely more accurate while operating. Some of the skills required for surgery are improved by gaming (Kato, 2010) 5. Real-Time Strategy games like Starcraft can increase a players brain flexibility, which scientists described as "a cornerstone of human intelligence" (Glass, Maddox & Love, 2013) TARCAT you want to marry a girl in Korea, to defeat her father in 6. Gamers have a higher processing speed than non-gamers (Dye, Green & Bavelier, 2009) 7. A study where people played Super Mario showed an actual volumetric brain increase. This proves that certain games can actually t specific parts of the brain (Kühn et al., 2014) rain 8. MMORPGs are extremely social, often leading to lifelong friendships, and lifepartners (H. Cole & M. Griffiths, 2007) 9, MMORPGs allow people to express themselves in ways they're uncomfortable doing in real life, being whoever and whatever they want (H. Cole & M. Griffiths, 2007) 10. Gaming leads to recovery from workstress Still under research) We are still researching the 10th point. If you're a gamer, work 24 hours per week, and would like to participate contact me orn 9chat. It's a purely academic study, and fully PRAIS SCIENCE) Sorry for the long post, here's a Portal potato Power of Gaming (Part 2)

Thoughts? oh geeze, i’m kinda rusty on minerals but malachite is just copper carbonate and is really common in both antique and modern jewelry so i think like if you were really gun-ho about it you could go ahead and put it wherever you want? It’s really only a problem if you’re polishing or cutting it. The particles would be bad to breathe. It’s rather porous too, so I would worry about bacteria growing. Well, being literal anyway… Better to leave the poor thing alone. ._. I mean it kinda depends on where you stick it because malachite does not like acidic environments very much and the malachite will degrade and also might dye your bits blue-green as the copper dissolves out. So use a condom when fucking rocks is the takeaway here. Oh my god guys it’s poisonous It is super poisonous There is a reason we do not use it in make up any more Not even with a condom, do not fuck the rock Try this one instead.  malachite literally explodes in water does it not? I… no… I think you’re thinking of pure sodium? Malachite is however water soluble, which really just means it will poison you quicker This is both hilarious and cool as fuck because you’re getting all this information on minerals and rocks. You’re also watching people argue over wether or not you can fuck this rock I go on hiatus for a week and come back to find tumblr molesting my post, but hey, at least we all learned something so yay tumblr, you just keep on  being you. I’m still not sure if I can fuck this rock. I’m looking into it. UPDATE: Today in “I’m so sorry, coworkers, it’s for Tumblr,” I brought this post to the attention the science reporters at BuzzFeed. Dan Vergano did a some research and weighed in on the question “Can you use malachite as a dildo or is it toxic?” The answer is “It’s probably fine, just wash it first and maybe use a bunch of lube.” Oh man this got so much better than the last time I saw this post This is my favourite. Science side of tumblr: asking the REAL questions *biologist crashes through the underbrush*Ok so here’s the thing thoughMalachite is not poisonous to YOU. BUT fucking this stalactite will probably wreck your vaginal flora and leave you with a gruesome infection within a couple days.Want details? SO GLAD YOU ASKED, ‘CAUSE HERE THEY ARE.• Malachite is not copper oxide. It’s Cu2CO3(OH)2. Like most carbonates it’s water soluble– that’s how it became a stalactite in the first place! And technically any given chunk of “malachite” isn’t just malachite– it’s a mix of various copper carbonates & oxides. This will become important later. • When malachite dissolves it makes a bunch of copper (Cu++) ions. Cu++ is GREAT at killing bacteria and fungi– so good at it that sprays with Cu++ get used a lot as a spray in agriculture to stop plant disease. It takes such a large dose to harm larger organisms that copper sprays are used a lot in organic agriculture (like Bordeaux mixture). So bottom line, yes malachite is technically nontoxic to humans. But it kills bacteria when it dissolves and releases Cu++.• Malachite dissolves somewhat slowly in water– but vaginal secretions aren’t just any water. A healthy human vagina has a pH of 3.8-4.5 and a salinity of about 0.9%. It’s also warmer than your average underground cave at 37°C (or 98.5°F in American meat units). As luck would have it, acidity, salinity, and warmth all make malachite dissolve faster. • In other words, the human vagina dissolves malachite. • I have no deeper explanation for why human females can dissolve rocks with our genitals. It simply is. • Gonna to take a quick moment to point out that sex toys that dissolve when you use them are maybe not the best investment. • Anyway the key question now is “how fast does the human vagina dissolve malachite?” Are we talking geological timescale, a Nazis-in-Indiana-Jones situation, or something in between? If the reaction kinetics of dissolution are very slow, then there’s nothing to worry about. An encounter with a stalactite would have to last years for enough Cu++ to leach out to cause problems. If it’s quick then we’re in trouble. • Unfortunately it looks like nobody really knows. One of the best sources on how malachite dissolves & precipitates in water– an EPA document on how to avoid too much Cu++ in municipal drinking water systems– helpfully says “The kinetic constraints on the formation of these solids in water systems are largely unexplored” (p. 42) because end equilibrium points is all you need to run a city water system safely. In other words, the experiments that would tell us how fast malachite dissolves in various types of water just don’t exist because nobody’s ever needed to know before. So we’d better assume it’s going to happen reasonably quickly, #for safety.• So in best scientific fashion, we’re just going to bullshit our way ahead using what facts we DO have on hand: endpoint equlibria. • Is there any info out there telling us what equilibrium concentration of Cu++ we get in salty acidic water at body temperature? Almost! One J.F. Scaife published some great data on this back in 1957. TAKE IT AWAY, SCAIFE.  That orange box is how many moles of dissolved Cu++ Scaife got from sticking malachite in some water that had 0.171 moles NaCl/L (body salinity is about 0.154 moles NaCl/L so this is slightly less salty than people) at 30°C. He’s got no acidity in there, and again the salinity and temperature are slightly lower than people. But this is probably the closest we’re going to get to data on how malachite behaves in vaginas anytime soon, folks. From this we can take away that if you leave malachite alone in a vagina you’ll get AT LEAST 9.12 x 10^-4 moles/L, or 5.8 ppm, of Cu++ at equilibrium. • Recall from above that most “malachite” isn’t actually pure malachite, it’s a mix of various copper carbonates & oxides. The EPA document elaborates: “[T]raditional ‘eyeball’ identification of malachite by its blue-green color is extremely unreliable, because almost all cupric hydroxysulfates, hydroxycarbonates, hydroxychlorides, and even fresh cupric hydroxide can be some shade of blue-green. … Thus, the uncertainty in the computed copper concentration in equilibrium with malachite is at least about a factor of 2 … until further experimental data focusing on this problem is generated.” In other words, “do your math and then double how much Cu++ you think is going to be in the water, just in case.” So that gives us 11.6ppm Cu++, at equilibrium, with malachite in a (til now!) healthy vagina. • Next step: do we have any idea what happens to bacteria in acid conditions with copper? OH MY GOD WE TOTALLY DO. Gyawali et al 2011 checked this out in the context of “so what if we rinsed tomatoes with a solution of lactic acid and copper, because that would be a safe & organic way to get rid of E. coli?” So now this post has officially ruined stalactites, vaginas, and tomatoes. ^This would happen. These are the counts of 4 E. coli strains exposed to various levels of lactic acid & Cu++ for 8 hours. This table only shows the end counts but it represents the death of 99.7% of bacteria*. • Losing 99.7% of your vaginal flora is seriously bad news. You’re looking at really good odds of a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, and/or other infection issues. And that’s if you’re lucky enough to not be in the 4% of the population or so that’s sensitive to skin contact with copper. • The good news? Biochemically speaking, you’re probably ok to put it in your butt. It’s not as acidic or salty in there, plus there’s a huuuuuge stockpile of gut microbes right upstream that can quickly repopulate the colon after spelunking is complete. However this stalactite is not flared at the base so it is the wrong shape for putting in your butt. Do not put this stalactite in your butt. • This all looks like fun and games, but I think it’s really interesting that the internet’s mistake in concluding that this stalactite is fuckable is very similar to the mistake made by the Flint water management system. Hear me out. • Central to the Flint lead poisoning crisis is that authorities only looked at & tested Flint’s water in its central treatment plant before it went out through the pipes. Not after it went through the pipes. They did not consider what would happen biochemically as it went through the pipes and metals started dissolving. • Similarly, in concluding that the stalactite is fuckable, the internet only considered the stalactite itself. Not the biochemical processes that would happen to it as it, welp, went through the pipes. • Media frequently reports that the Flint River’s water is “corrosive,” leading many to believe the river is full of industrial waste. This ain’t the case. You’d need industry to fill a river with industrial waste, and industry left decades ago. That’s why Flint’s so poor. So what IS in the water? Road salt. Plain old stupid road salt. The old Detroit-based source didn’t have salt because it came from Lake Huron which has a large, mostly rural watershed. Meanwhile the Flint River runs through a lot of towns, making it slightly salty as everything melts down in spring. And as we recall from the stalactite experience, a little salt is all it takes to get metals to dissolve. • Information on this engineering problem was not coming through clearly from the engineering or chemistry sides. It took a biologist, pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha, to document the real-time results and provide the data to kick-start a high-level investigation. • Morals of the story: when dealing with a biological system pls consider asking a biologist, your vagina and/or city could depend on this• Pls use a condom when fucking any water-soluble material• Still don’t put the stalactite in your butt -3/10 do not recommend OK, I haven’t reblogged this before now but the final post takes it to a whole new level and I can no longer resist.  fine, this is the Best Tumblr Post What a wild fucking ride.
