Hormones Matter


Among many, men and women are viewed to be the same, except that women can have babies. Actually, this is the politically correct view.  If one does not espouse it in front of a feminist woman, she is likely to have the vapors.

In reality (which many choose to ignore), the sexes are different.  One aspect is with respect to hormones.  Here is some anecdotal evidence about what they are capable of.

From here,

As long as we’re talking about the stereotype about women, let me show you something I’ve been listening to that’s kind of blowing my mind — even though I heard it when it originally aired in 2002 — the recently rebroadcast “Testosterone” episode of “This American Life.” There’s so much fascinating/disturbing material, but I just want to focus on what feels relevant here, which is the interview with a man who had had a medical condition that took his testosterone level to zero. He’s asked “And during those months, how are you behaving? What was different?”

“It wasn’t that I was behaving. It was that I was not behaving at all. I was, when I was awake, literally sitting in bed and staring at the wall with neither interest nor disinterest for three, four hours at a time. If you’d had a camera in the room, you would have thought I was comatose. I would go out. I would buy some groceries early in the morning. And that would be it. My day had no content. I had no interest in even watching TV, much less reading the newspaper or a book. Food– I didn’t want my food to taste good or interesting. And when you’re blessed with that lack of desire, you can eat a loaf of Wonder Bread with mayonnaise. And that will be your day…. People who are deprived of testosterone don’t become Spock-like and incredibly rational. They become nonsensical because they’re unable to distinguish between what is and isn’t interesting, and what is worth noting and what isn’t…. You just have to remember that it doesn’t matter if you have nothing if you want nothing. Very tricky to get inside that mindset. In some ways, it’s difficult for me to even remember it now. But it had its allure.”

Like wow.  Who would want to live like that?  It is said that testosterone drives men forward to do what they do.  This is evidence.

From here,

Griffin Hansbury: And I’ve gotten into a lot of arguments with women friends, coworkers who did not know about my past as a female. I call myself a post-feminist. And I had a woman say, you’re not a post-feminist. You’re a misogynist. And I said, that’s impossible. I can’t be a misogynist. I couldn’t explain to her how I had come to this point in my life. And to her, I was just a misogynist. And that’s unfortunate because it’s a lot more complicated than that.

Alex Blumberg:[LAUGHTER] I’ll say. Wow. Testosterone didn’t just turn you into a man. It turned you into Rush Limbaugh.

Griffin Hansbury: I know. That I was not expecting. That I was not expecting. . . .

Alex Blumberg: Or something. Are there other ways– other than the visual and other than the libidinal, are there other ways that you feel like testosterone has altered the way you feel or perceive?

Griffin Hansbury: Something that happened after I started taking testosterone, I became interested in science. I was never interested in science before.

Alex Blumberg: No way. Come on. Are you serious?

Griffin Hansbury: I’m serious. I’m serious.

Alex Blumberg: You’re just setting us back a hundred years, sir.

From here

It’s funny, I was talking to a friend a while back who was very interested in math and science pre-puberty, but lost nearly all interest afterward, and she said, “when the estrogen came in, the science went out.”

Some other stuff in this interview reminds me of my friend (and former editor) Norah Vincent, who lived as a man for a year and wrote a great book, Self-Made Man. She, too, said that as a “bulldyke” woman, she was very masculine, but as a man — in her case, without hormones — she wasn’t all that masculine for a man. And that it was a lot harder to be a man than women think.

Yes, it is more difficult to be a man than women think.  And hormones matter.  Neither of these truths will be accepted.

    Forget testosterone. Simply consider the concept of mass from physics. In the clip, the small female jumps up in the air and kicks the much larger guy. He flies backwards and smashes into the wall. In reality, he would remain unmoved, and the force with which she kicked him would propel her backwards. True whether its a small woman kicking a large man, or a small man kicking a large man. Physics is physics, and mass is mass, regardless of which sex or gender you identify as.

    It is said we go to movies to escape reality for a few minutes. Fine. So long as one leaves the unreal in the movie house. Unfortunately, many don’t.

    in a good way

    The first thing to understand is that there really is such a thing as a “leftie brain”. This is based on definitive research which shows that everywhere, all around the world, lefties score low on “conscientiousness” and high on “openness” (two of the so-called “big 5” personality traits). See the following links:

    Populist personalities? The Big Five Personality Traits and party choice in the 2015 UK general election
    Secrets of the right-wing brain: New study proves it — conservatives see a different, hostile world
    The Secret Lives of Liberals and Conservatives

    The left do not experience any sensation of “social disgust” (as I have mentioned before). But they know it exists and they fear it (that’s why they hate the Daily Mail, which plugs away at social disgust 24/7). The left gain a sense of emotional pleasure – a dopamine reward system – from their ranting because it makes them feel like an intellectual knight in shining armour. You could call it “ad ipse” (to the self) because of the way the superior self is always present in their thinking. It’s like “I’m right because I’m great” and “I’m great because I’m right” all tangled up in a ball of tautological and solipsistic pseudo-logic.

    We can almost name the actual brain cells that do “politics”. Conscientiousness and social disgust are driven by the Amigdala which is more developed in folks on the right, whereas the Anterior Cinglate Cortex (ACC) is more developed in lefties. It may be the part that generates a need for equality. See Political Orientations Are Correlated with Brain Structure in Young Adults

    Let’s take a look at some recent research into the big 5 and what that says about the proclivities of the left. I have broken this up into a number of comment-sized chunks, just to make it easier if you want to introduce any of them into the blogs and comment sections of the left, you know, just to aid their understanding and keep them abreast of research findings.

    A couple of weeks ago, I’m in the endodontist’s office waiting to spend a crap ton of money on the first two, count ’em, two root canals, and as is usual these days, there’s a TV set on in the background. At 7:30 in the morning, the last thing I want to do is watch TV. But I notice it’s tuned to the Disney channel which is running some show that appears to be about teenagers, geared to a teenaged audience. I wasn’t much paying attention until I noticed a basketball game going on. It appeared to be some kind of a one-on-one grudge match between two protagonists, one of which was some guy that looked like he was supposed to be an arrogant douchebag, and his opponent was a girl.

    Naturally, the girl won.

    The game consisted of a rapid-fire series of cuts that showed the girl making jump shots over the top of the douchebag, getting around him for an easy layup, smacking the ball out of his hands while he was dribbling, and making nothing-but-net 3-pointers. And then after the game, she trash talks him and stalks off the court in triumph, leaving him abject and humiliated.

    I just get so tired of this.

    If you want to have a high-school drama where an arrogant douchebag gets his come-uppance at the hands of a girl, fine. But this is just silly. Because in order not to offend the feminists, every movie and TV show now has to have a KAF (kick-ass female) either as a lead or as a major character, who can compete toe-to-toe with the most physically competitive men.
