Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, #No Outsiders
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Made worldwide news…practitioners & policy makers across UK

This is one thread on how the media, conglomerates like Disney and others sexualize childhood and children to make them more profitable consumers.
This is a second thread on the same topic, with excerpts from "Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture", by Peggy Orenstein.

"What was the first thing that culture told her about being a girl? Not that she was competent, strong, creative, or smart but that every little girl wants - or should want - to be the Fairest of Them All."

#Genderdysphoria & FASD short thread 🧵 #FASD is a brain-based disability, caused by alcohol. It is known as Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. It is a ‘Spectrum’ & often not visible physically. It often co-exists with #autism #adhd #aspergers #LD & remains largely under diagnosed
In #Australia, alcohol is part of the culture & part of life. It is a BIG problem. Mothers are cautioned largely not to drink & the fathers role is largely ignored, not realising their own addictions affect the foetus. Many children & teens have FASD Spectrum & they don’t know it
Nor do their parents. If the parents do know, there can be much guilt, denial, shame & lack of support. Many children with FASD are underdiagnosed or MISdiagnosed. There are a group of children/ teens with #FASD & #genderdysphoria (with or without #autism) #psychology

I am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

Ellie Barnes, Peter Tatchell and Educate & Celebrate

The British LGBTQ+ consultants shaping Relationships and Sexual Education in Irish Schools.

Thread 1/5 Image
Educate and Celebrate want to smash hetronormativity.

"Heteronormativity is the belief that heterosexuality is the default, preferred, or normal mode of sexual orientation."

I'm sorry but it is....
"It used to be the odd lesson where we talked about Diversity, now its non stop"
This is indoctrination.

Excited to share this new preprint biorxiv.org/cgi/content/sh…

Is #caffeinated #soda bad for children's #brain development? If so, which specific intellectual capacity is affected? It is a question that many parents and caregivers are asking daily but there is no clear guideline 1/n
Using the #ABCDstudy data, we addressed the question in this work, “Daily caffeinated soda intake is associated with impaired working memory and higher impulsivity in children” 2/n
Some soda contains #caffeine (Coca Cola, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, etc). The physical side effects of caffeinated soda such as obesity have been well documented and the short-term effects of caffeine consumption (mostly in adults) are well known. 3/n

How does posture constrain the developing bodily self? Hot off the press from #ChildDevelopment, may I introduce to you our article on #BodyRepresentation in #childhood? w/ @dcowiedurham, @Andy_Bremner, @SamKeenaghan et al)
@DurhamPsych @Uppsala_BabyLab bit.ly/2C8Ao0Z
What is this article about?

The feeling of inhabiting a body is fundamental for self-experience. Here, localisation of our body parts (e.g. hands) and the feeling of ownership over it are crucial. We wanted to know how different postures of hands impacts #BodyRepresentation. Image
What did we do?

We used the classic #RubberHandIllusion paradigm to investigate how children's perceptions of their own body were influenced by the match between a viewed fake hand and their own. Here, the posture of the fake hand either matched or did not match their own hand's

This arrived today. The book is an attempt to present a historically-embedded account of western childhood and how the co-constitutive logics of capital and motherhood have shaped its modern understanding. @VSLIIMA

#childhood #education #motherhood Image
"Situated at the confluence of children's nature and childhood's nurture, mothers are those who most often held personally responsible for navigating the dense undergrowth of competing and confusing narratives and expectations of childhood." #childhood
"Three elements- childhood's pliability, maternal accountability for children and children's subjecthood- entangle and tussle with one another in a variety of ways to produce a 'moral architecture' of childhood."

In the deepest recesses of my memory are images of illustrated classics that have stayed with me and still give me a thrill. One such image is of a raft-wrecked and exhausted Odysseus who is desperately trying to make his way to land but is confounded by the vengeful Poseidon
who brews vicious storms and mighty waves. The artist in that comic book captured it so well. I just saw that image again after decades & it evoked so many memories. Years later as I revisit the The Odyssey through a late 19th century translation and read the following:
I am reminded of the feeling of awe that it first inspired:

"So for two nights and two days he was wandering in the swell of the sea, and much his heart boded of death ... but when he was within earshot of the shore, and heard now the thunder of the sea against the reefs ..

New preprint from the @GaabLab with first author @JenniferMZuk : "White matter in #infancy is prospectively associated with language outcome in kindergarten" biorxiv.org/content/10.110…
We would love to hear your feedback! Please find a summary below #infant #mri #brain #language 1/9
We think that our paper is the first #longitudinal #neuroimaging study to document white matter organization in #infancy & follow-up w these infants 5 years later to characterize their #language outcomes. Recent work in the field of #developmental cognitive #neuroscience...2/9
...proposes that the first 2 years of life signify the most rapid period of #brain development & sets a foundation for long-term development, but there has yet to be direct evidence with respect to brain structure due to a lack of longitudinal designs with #neuroimaging. ...3/9

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
