Losing our manhood

Well, this certainly explains a lot of things. I mean, a LOT.

Shocking Brand New Research: Testosterone in Total Freefall, May Account for Explosion in Transgenderism

The left celebrates the trend while the right laments it, but what everyone can agree upon is that rates of transgenderism have exploded in the past decade.

“About 42,000 U.S. children ages 6 to 17 were diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 2021, nearly triple the number in 2017,” Reuters reports. A tripling in transgenderism should shock any honest public policy analyst and beg for intense scrutiny.

Many cultural critics and behavioral scientists have postulated that there is a notable “social contagion” element to the trend — in which children are conditioned through public school indoctrination and social/corporate media to assume “transgender” identities for greater social status. Certainly, there is extensive evidence to back up this theory, especially for girls who are more sensitive to social pressures.

Monkey see, monkey do.

The social contagion angle is red meat for the populist right-wing base, who see their children immersed in cult-like groupthink in every civic institution, bankrolled by woke corporate foundations with their own interests in mind. Their outrage is morally justified in this regard.

But the parallel physiological drop-off in sperm counts and testosterone levels, which effectively feminizes boys and men, is also likely an underappreciated angle and arguably even more important than social conditioning.

Eminent researcher Dr. Shanna Swan explains her findings from a recent study that paint an even bleaker picture regarding testosterone and sperm counts than previously imagined.

More, and worse, from Ilana Mercer back in October.

American men are indeed losing the stuff that makes them macho.

Wrote Reuters in 2007:

“A new study has found a ‘substantial’ drop in U.S. men’s testosterone levels since the 1980s.” The average levels of the male hormone have been dropping by an astounding 1 percent a year. A 65-year-old in 1987 would have had testosterone levels 15 percent higher than those of a 65-year-old in 2002.

The reasons for the reduction in testosterone levels remain unclear. A rise in obesity and a decline in smoking have been suggested, since “testosterone levels are lower among overweight people and smoking increases testosterone levels.”

I knew it. Goddammit, I KNEW all those years of smoking were gonna pay off for me sooner or later, one way or another. Other possible factors? Oh, you betcher.

FEMINIZATION

It is very possible, even likely, that the feminization of society over the past 20 to 30 years is changing males, body and mind. It is very possible that the subliminal stress involved in sublimating one’s essential nature is producing less manly men.

Consider: When they are not twerking tush with transexuals, today’s tykes are required to hack their way through page-turners like One Dad Two Dads Brown Dad Blue Dads. Boyhood today also means BB guns and “bang-bang you’re dead” are banned.

Boys are hardwired for competition; the contemporary school enforces cooperation. Boys like to stand out. But team-work obsessed, mediocre, mostly female school teachers teach them to fade into the background. Boys thrive in more disciplined, structured learning environments; the American school system is synonymous with letting it all hang out.

Sons are more likely to be raised without male mentors, since moms, in the last few decades, are more inclined to divorce (and get custody), never marry, or bear children out of wedlock. The schools have been emptied of manly men and staffed by feminists, mostly lacking in the Y chromosome. Although boys (and girls) require discipline, the rare disciplinarian risks parent-driven litigation.

DEMONIZATION

Boys leave secondary school suffused with a sense of their gender as a repository for society’s ills. As if that’s not bad enough, they soon discover that society privileges girls in tertiary schools and in the workplace. Why, even girls favor girls. Most young women swoon over washed-out, asexual celebrities—cherubic-looking, soft-spoken, “girlie-men,” are replacing deep-voiced, macho men as hot favorites.

Women say they look for partners who are “sweet and sensitive.” If they’re having children with androgynous men who grow bum-fluff for stubble, then perhaps they’re breeding out testosterone.

The smashing success of politically incorrect books such as The Dangerous Book for Boys proves how desperate little boys are to be boys again—the book reintroduced a new generation of youngsters to the joys of catapult-making, knot-tying, stone skimming, astronomy, and such “toxic masculinity”. (Concocting rocket fuel from saltpeter and sugar is not in the book, but is a lot of fun—or so my husband tells me.)

Well, sure, but you gotta watch out handling that damned saltpeter stuff; as I recollect (and I could very well be all wet on this), they used to hand it out in prisons to blunt the edge of the raging male sex drive by inducing impotence, thereby averting the obvious (ahem) problems that commonly happen in the Big House.

As for the rest of it, like I’ve said many times, the now-ubiquitous phrase “toxic masculinity” is an abomination in and of itself, one that has wrought incalculable damage on entire generations of young American men and boys. How can a society spend decades excoriating masculinity—effectively selecting for sissification and emasculation—and then act all shocked and surprised when it winds up ridiculously overstocked on emasculated sissies?

A good while back, I set up a “Toxic Feminism” category here at Ye Olde Colde Furye Blogge. There was a reason for that, and it remains a very good one. The sad, sorry fact of the matter is, it’s Toxic Feminists who did that to us; now, society will be paying the price for going along with that genuine hate-crime for years to come.

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
