Yeah, evolution called and that explanation is bullshit!

 

We focus on breasts for 2 important reasons:

 

1. We walk upright.

2. We have a hidden estrus.

 

Let me explain: in other primates it is common for the female buttocks to swell during estrus alerting males to their fertility. As humans evolved an upright posture the muscles of the buttocks became enlarged to support a bipedal stance resulting in this signal being lost. The best theories to date state this is why the buttock cleft and breast cleavage look very similar, similar evolutionary stimulus.

 

Furthermore, as humans have a hidden estrus the breasts enlarged to emulate a receptive female, which also had useful sociological implications in retaining males (which I won't go into). 

 

Most other primates have very small breasts. Interestingly, humans also have the largest penis of any primate. Humans are actually very weird primates in general and especially with regards to reproductive strategies.

 

So basically breasts are artificial signals that the female is receptive to fertilization. Which means humans have a VERY strong selective pressure to find them desirable.

 

Note: I'm paraphrasing from memory here, I can find some sources later if anyone cares, and yes this is considered a "theory", but has strong evidence supporting it.

 

Except that in many other societies breasts have little meaning to males. Nice try though. We are taught this in our society. Look at any commercial with a woman in it.

This is a loaded sociological question. What I mean by that is what you hear about societies and men liking breasts will be heavily dependent on how the study was run and by who (I suspect you are referring to a '51 Ford and Beach study for the "many societies" statement"). Remember, as it is possible for a society to sexualize one characteristic (say ankles) it is also possible to de-sexualize a characteristic outside of context specific instances (i.e., any culture that has full nudity will by default have a context sensitive sexualization of the genitalia. So just by saying that the "set" which includes breasts does not fully overlap with their sexualization, does not exclude them from being a biologically driven sexual characteristic. 

 

There is a very heavy narrative that has been pushed to see breasts as non-sexual so you have to watch for the bias in a study that says this. Many theories fly around about that from an ethological and anthropological viewpoint. I would argue ignoring the basic biological functions and costs of an anatomic structure is foolish. Biology shapes behavior, although it is a 2-way street.

 

The plain fact of it is breasts are a secondary sexual characteristic, are unusually large in humans compared to other primates, and are energy intensive to maintain, indicating that they serve a biological purpose that is selected for. Males of many species pay attention to secondary sexual characteristics, fat deposits, and overall health and indicators of fertility.

 

For most women (~80% or so by sources and personal experience seems to be on par with this) stimulation of the nipples results in sexual pleasure, whether this is a co-opted breast-feeding-oxytocin reaction I think is still up for debate, but the nipples are definitely a strong erogenous zone and more so in women compared to men.

 

Either way I think saying "breasts have little meaning to males" given their biologically wired erogenous characteristics, and energy intensive requirements to maintain, is bullshit. They would be strongly selected against in that instance as they inhibit fitness (for a variety of reasons- I leave that as an exercise to the reader).

 

Plainly if they did not serve as a visual stimulus they would not be the largest of primates, as their size is totally independent of their function in feeding young.

Well Dr. Guy, I'm not stupid enough to suggest Object Relation Theory is conclusive, but if you believe anthropomorphic comparative observations of primate sexual behavior constitutes "strong evidence supporting" this theory, seriously... what makes you think you're in a position to call my theory BS? At very least, psychology studies human behavior to test the validity of our hypotheses.

 

To me, your theory sounds like it's trying to uphold an outdated biological evolutionary model of human psychology based on assumptions of genetic determinism. You can rationalize bias, but when you consider the lack of universal human sexual preference across all sociocultural groups, this purely biological explanation you proposed falls apart. Desirable secondary sexual characteristics varies widely throughout the world. In fact, evolutionary psychology's hypotheses have zero testability, therefore it doesn't even meet minimum standards to be considered an empirical science. As a scientist you should know better than to use speculative hypotheses in an attempt to disprove or devalue alternate theoretical viewpoints.  

 

That being said, even I think Object Relations Theory is 50% mental autoeroticism, and 50% bovine scatology. And no, I don't care to see your sources. I have enough reading to do already.

Feds Collect Record Taxes in First Month Under Tax Cut; Run Surplus in January

 

The federal government this January ran a surplus while collecting record total tax revenues for that month of the year, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.

January was the first month under the new tax law that President Donald Trump signed in December.

During January, the Treasury collected approximately $361,038,000,000 in total tax revenues and spent a total of approximately $311,802,000,000 to run a surplus of approximately $49,236,000,000.

 

 

not bad, cut some debt, good for the long run.

Remington suffering now that Trump is in office. Bummer. All that fear of the liberal grab lead to sales inflation and it appears Remmington didn't account for those deltas.

We could flip that to Remington suffering because the greatest gun salesman of all time isn't in office.BarryO.They had problems already.

Not trumps fault, Remington kind of went to shit quality wise a few years ago, remember the r51 fiasco? Not to mention that every model 700 since the 70's has a faulty trigger.

I yeald to the wisdom of Q on this one.

I know it’s tomayto tomahto, but it’s more of a problem with the safety than the trigger. Regardless, it’s bad for business to know a design is potentially dangerous, as was brought by designers of the model 700, and decide the fix is too expensive when it’s less than a dollar per unit. Furthermore, the death of a child, whether remingtons actual fault or not, is not good for sales. It’s few and far between that someone, even though I do, would blame the grieving mother for that accident. I do blame her because if she was handling the rifle safely by having it pointed where she KNEW no one could be hit by a discharge, the kid would still be alive. Pointing a rifle at a travel trailer, even if you don’t think someone is inside or behind it is negligent in my book. Proper unloading procedure for any weapon requires pointing in a safe direction until unloading is verified. I can say that my brothers 90s 870 seems of a quite higher quality than our older brothers 2010-ish 870 from finish to function the older one is just better. Remington is going to shit these days, I fully agree. Worst part is they still act like they’re top of the line and their prices reflect that. Their financial problems are their own fault.

Remington was purchased by "freedom group" who's sole purpose is making money, not quality firearms. That's where they have truely gone to shit, when it becomes more about money and less about the quality of the product.

And I agree with you, some one doesn't accidentally get shot if they practice safe firearms handling.

They’re going to be assed out soon enough. There’s too many quality manufacturers, some of which are just coming into their own, that will occupy Remingtons market share. Mossberg and Benelli make great shotguns, there are a bunch of quality rifle manufacturers in the same price range...they’re fucked in my book. They have nothing that no one else has.

Although the media soaks it for all the ratings they can get out of it, I agree John.

Not sure "glorify" is accurate 

 

Glorify:

a : to make glorious by bestowing honor, praise, or admiration.

b : to elevate to celestial glory.

 

I think they could capitalize on them less though, but at the same time I wouldn't be happy if the media started looking the other way. Balance

Alleged photos of the suspected Florida high school shooter make reference to various ideologies including communism and perhaps ISIS, and voter records suggest 19-year-old Nicolas Cruz was a Democratic voter.

 

did not see it in the coverage I watched(only shown from behind), but it was said he had on a communist themed T-Shirt when arrested. Bet they find connection to antifa.
