I found this story quite interesting, whether it turns out to be true at face value or whether it is social engineering, a set of scientific theories and cherry-picked supporting evidence (that ignores potential evidence or theories to the contrary) assembled and widely touted to elicit specific beliefs and behaviors from the general public, like global warming.
I've become such a cynic, maybe due to working as a writer so long and being so familiar with the techniques and the actual mechanics of shaping and manipulating public opinions, emotions and beliefs that, when I see a story like this, I immediately consider who would benefit from this type of theory being accepted as fact.
I find it interesting that the same words used to describe the primitive men and primates replaced by the lower-testosterone, more 'cultured' versions are used today to describe those of us resistant to totalitarian, nanny state control, those of us that insist on maintaining our individual rights and liberty.
I see exactly what qualities those who want to control the masses with big government, since they're too stupid to make the right choices for themselves, hate about real men. Real men won't accept TSA agents putting their hands in their daughter's underwear. Submissive men stand around in scores and watch TSA agents humiliate elderly women in wheelchairs and do nothing.
Real men – those 'bitter clingers' Obama spoke of – refuse to give up their right to self defense and their right to bear arms. Submissive men relinquish all weapons and call the police after being brutalized or watching their family be brutalized.
Real men revolted against a grasping, tyrannical government, even though it was the largest Empire in the world. Submissive, low-testosterone men just accept abuse after abuse, excusing the abuse as necessary, perhaps even deserved.
I think about the penalization and ADD/ADHD drugging of mostly male behaviors in the classroom. I think about the constant denigration of traditional male qualities and characteristics in culture and society. I think about how men are presented in popular media, inept, stupid, clueless, childlike, helpless prisoners of their most base elements, and so on.
Yeah, I found this story very interesting. It made me think about a lot of things.
