The Exigent Duality
Forty Percent Drop in Forty Years - 10:01 CST, 6/24/22 (Sniper)
Almost every day I am astonished at how effeminate modern men look. Hardly anyone talks about how plummeting Testosterone levels have caused grave imbalances in world politics and societies, so I am compelled to remind everyone once in awhile.

This doesn't make any of these men "bad people"-- not even remotely! There's nothing intrinsically wrong with having low Testosterone. But Estrogen equals harmonization; Testosterone equals assertiveness. When you have too much of one or the other, the world goes out of whack. Right now, we're swimming in Estrogen, so there is not enough pushback against typically effeminate values, like huge governments obsessed with "safety" and busy-bodiness.

This morning I was on the "" home page, and saw a banner image for a Formula 1 game. Take a look at those guys! In the 1980s, they would have been in the bottom five percent of T levels across all men. Today? They are average.

For comparison's sake, take a look at Ayrton Senna when he was alive. Pay close attention to the shape his nose, his brow ridge, and the texture of his skin in particular. And he was hardly a He-Man of his day either, I could find far more extreme examples-- but I wanted to stick within Formula 1.

Incidentally, I'm a good point of contrast. I took thirty seconds moments ago and snapped a picture of myself via the bathroom mirror. This is what the typical "Gen X'er" looks like. Like Senna, I'm hardly Arnold Schwarzenegger. Lots of the contractors I worked with over this past year were significantly more masculine looking than me.

But even in my "geeky nerd, professional programmer" case, the difference in hair texture, skin texture, brow ridge, size plus shape of nose, and in my case jawline as well, is astonishing.

Once again, this isn't to say that I'm somehow "better" than young men today, or any of that nonsense. All I'm pointing is the difference-- and when you roll up the net behaviors of men today versus in decades past, you can see the world increasingly skidding out of control in one direction.
