You know the drill, right? Not enough time blah blah, you get links 🙂 I’ve got a post coming up in a week for National Infertility Awareness Week (April 24-30, mark your calendars!). I’m also probably going to opine soon on chocolate milk, which is a perennial dilemma in our house.
- Human language arose in southern Africa, first-of-its-kind analysis suggests. Oooooh! I have to admit my linguistics knowledge is too out of date to know how legit this is, but it sounds cool 😀 And since it’s well-known that genetic diversity lessens the farther you get from Africa, it sounds good, right?
- Archaeologists uncover first known gay caveman. Not so much. First of all…dude was probably a third gender, not gay. Second…not even close to being the first instance of this. I mean, I’ve got an entire volume from grad school describing third sexes and third genders all over the world. And that’s not even getting into my archaeology of gender books. Read the quotes from the archaeologist and ignore all the surrounding text.
- Warning: Getting your hair straightened could endanger your health. Yikes! I love my curls. And I’m reminded of why I stick with an occasional treatment of pure henna. (Note to self: I need to buy more.)
- Abercrombie bikini tops: Threat to girls’ mental health? I don’t know if they’re a threat to my daughter’s mental health, but they’re a threat to mine. Ugh. Seriously, though, I’d urge everybody to avoid buying from a company that thinks this is appropriate. Ick feh.
- Stem cells were God’s will, says first recipient of treatment. Pretty much anything I say here would be rude, so I’ll just point folks in the direction of the article.
- Mothers share breast milk via Internet groups despite FDA’s concerns. I’m really torn. More breastmilk being consumed by babies=good. But the potential for something to go wrong (infection, contamination) is not negligible. ::waffles:: The answer is more regulated breastmilk banks!
