Here, I've changed the time-signature on this entry just so it falls below the one I just wrote. It's actually 2:47ish or something. God, must go home!! It's just so fun to play guiltlessly for once after how I've been living and breathing thesis-writing for the past week straight.
In that vein, I thought I'd at least post the final paragraph of the darn thing. Once I pin all the parts together, including the math/statistics analyses charts, the references, and so on, it'll probably still be less than a hundred pages. Oh well. Anyway, here's me (it'll probably get revised tomorrow/today, anyway, but what the heck):
Overall, an important concept conveyed by these results is that despite efforts by many organizations to impart nutritional information to the public, it seems we are not listening by and large. The participants in this study appeared to mostly ignore actual nutrition when selecting food in order to conform to gender roles correlating with their sex. Instead of viewing food as nutritional components contributing to overall diet, we are still looking at food as individual items and giving those items value judgments. In the case of this study, the value judgment that arose was that of food items being gendered. In any case, non-nutritional traits attributed to food items may confuse the kinds of choices individuals make regarding food choices, leading to less-than-optimal nutrition.
