Is Plastic Making Little Girls Crazy?

The chemical Bisphenol A, more commonly known as BPA, is being blamed for a rise in aggression and hyperactivity in young girls. BPA is commonly found in water bottles; the study is not clear as to why boys are unaffected. I thought I had something amusing to say about this, but I don't.

Sugar and spice and aggression and hyperactivity, apparently.

Shouldn't it be called bitchphenol-A, then?

Yeah, that was sexist I know, but I couldn't resist.

So boys are becoming more feminine, and girls are becoming more masculine?

Soon enough all our children will be Hillary Swank.

Without plastic what how will young girls learn to bankrupt their future husbands?

As we say in the south: "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar"

Without plastic how will they get husbands?

I would speculate from a background of complete ignorance about science and genetics that the reason male children are not effected is because what remains of the Y-chromosome is already such a sad, tattered thing. The average homeless guy's shoelace is in better shape than the Y chromosome.

They say if a woman ingests a lot of BPA, it can result in her eventually giving birth to boys with teeny tiny balls.

Alan Colmes?

"Prenatal BPA exposure in rodent studies is associated
with increased aggression, morphine- and methamphetamine-induced hyperlocomotion…"

Ha, awesome!

Just kidding. Here's the study if anyone wants to read it over. I have to *GBTW*!

BPA's found in cancerous breast tissue…so there's that.
