American Men Lose Testoserone, Become Feminized

This link popped up as I am in the middle of Mark Steyn's "America Alone" which I heartily recommend. Steyn spends a lot of time on demography and how the EU countries in Europe have seen birthrates plunge dramatically in the last two decades. In countries like Spain [1.11] and Italy [1.21] the rates of birth make impossible the number of taxpaying citizens in the coming generations who must be born to pay for these layabouts' elaborate social security systems, some of which kick in at age 50.

Here is the Newsmax article:
A study finds that men in the United States have lower levels of testosterone than they did just one generation ago.

Average total testosterone levels in men aged 65 to 69 fell from 503 nanograms/decileter (ng/dL) in 1988 to 423 ng/dL in 2003, the New England Research Institutes in Watertown, Mass. Reports.

Researchers cannot pinpoint the drop, noting that aging, smoking and obesity can’t fully explain what’s happening.

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and plays an important role in maintaining bone and muscle mass. Low testosterone levels have been linked to health problems, including lowered libido and diabetes, reports HealthDay.

Normally, testosterone levels reach their heights while a man is in his 20s, and then they gradually fall, but this study found that overall testosterone levels are lower than they were 20 years ago.

"In 1988, men who were 50 years and older had higher serum testosterone concentrations than did comparable 50-year-old men in 1996. This suggests that some factor other than age may be contributing to the observed declines in testosterone over time," study lead author Thomas G. Travison said.

He and his colleagues analyzed blood samples — along with health and other information — from about 1,500 men in the greater Boston area who took part in the Massachusetts Male Aging Study. That study collected data in 1987-89, 1995-97, and 2002-04.

The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

The most rabid of the man-hating femininazis out there on the non-procreating left speak of "testoserone poisoning" as the primal illness of western civilization, meaning the primacy of male values leads to warfare, capitalism, and all sorts of social conditions which these sports of nature consider pathological.

However, putting the looking glass backward, perhaps the feminizing of males due to incessant browbeating and being led by feminized wusses like GHWB and Billy Jeff Clinton have created a cultural contact vibe of the degenerate boomers finding yet another way to drop the ball, metaphorically speaking.

In this view, the masculine virtues required by the wartime "Greatest Generation" were passed on to my war baby generation in time for soldiers to fight the Korean and Vietnam wars, which led to the eventual fall of Communism.

But already there were girlie-men infiltrating, most from the baby boomers, but some prophetic like the hermaphroditic Jimmy Carter, who promoted multicultural and perspectivist viewpoints that essentially tell the world, like the fiasco State Dept. magazine about metrosexuals, that American males are whipped, cowardly, craven and simpering much like Carter and the complaisant Clinton, who at least acted out the "lust in his heart."

Actually, America's leaders have recently reflected the majority three or four percent of US voters who are women, and many of these don't like strong masculine men, for reasons both social and pathological. The Naomi Wolf Gorebot and the French fop Kerry are examples of mimesis of the female mindset of the Democrat Party.

Steyn's reflections on the declining birth rates around the world are sobering. Read the chapter dealing with Japan, and the robots created to fill the void of children who were not born. Or Russia, whose social and medical pathologies are creating a birthrate so low that they might as well sell Eastern Siberia to the billion-plus Chinese, before the PRC decides to just step in and take those resource-rich frozen tundras. Or the eternal childhood sought by Eurotopia on its way to becoming Eurabia, because as the EU birthrates fall beneath levels of sustainability, the rates of the Arab and Paki and Turkish immigrants are triple the anemic EU feminized societies in which the Muslim immigrants live and into which they refuse to assimilate.

The overall US rate is 2.11 per couple, and Steyn assures us that the "native" US citizens are procreating at a healthy 1.85 clip [we all know who the "natives" are], so the Christian/Catholic believers among America are keeping the cradles full; while the Eurotopian cathedrals may eventually become mosques like Hagia Sophia in downtown Istanbul. On the journey to Eurabia, where the feminized men will have to adjust to seeing their women wear burkas and walk several steps behind them in public. But, of course, they can always remember that two or three are better than one.

Compensations that may be worth waiting for! And meantime, keep that Vitamin E and goat-testicle syrup handy, as there could be a comeback in the offing. Nothing is over til it's over!
