Didnt men use to be more masculine? They were more ready to fight back, right? They walked with more swagger, and just did more things their way.

Researchers cant measure swagger but they can measure testosterone, the male sex hormone most responsible for masculine behaviors and studies show that testosterone levels in men have been on the decline for decades.

i seriously doubt that. in some ways, things are more stressful now than they've ever been. I'd say it's a biological reason. some sort of adaptation based on need/use.

It is likely to do with the chemicals in the environment, the hormones in meat, and a more sedentary lifestyle. But it is men who have been largely responsible for building the chemical plants that ended up doing this.

Male gametes are more likely to be damaged as they are outside the body and more vulnerable. Females have always been the more hardy gender and males have always been stronger in a muscular sense.

I'm going to go beat up the researchers. According to my manlogic, that should fix the problem.

Dairy consumption has been increasing for decades and for decades they have been increasing the female type hormones pumped into the dairy herds.

I was tested and had low testosterone levels (low, even for a female....of which I am) which was chalked up to me having an eating disorder.
I wore patches of transdermal testosterone for 6 months and all it did was give me acne.
Sooo......you can have all the testosterone you want, I don't like it.
