    A recent study conducted at the University of Arkansas finds that men with heightened physical strength are perceived as more conservative by others. The study found that men who seem fit and healthy and have some bulk are considered right-wing, while thin or svelte and weak-looking men were not assumed to lean right. The results came from a series of four experiments that sought to establish a link between political orientation and a fit physique, according to the Daily Mail. Viewers were presented with photos of male bodies with faces covered and asked to rank which ideology they thought the...
  • The male loneliness epidemic and how it affects fathers

    09/18/2023 2:02:35 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 52 replies
    Several years ago, another dad reached out to me after reading my work about being a stay-at-home dad. He was married, had two toddlers and was not coping well. He couldn’t find another person to talk to outside his family. He didn’t say it, because most of us men won’t, but fatherhood was taking a toll on his mental health and self-worth. He felt alone — but not because he didn’t have a good relationship with his significant other. He told me it was because he didn’t have friends. We hear a lot these days about men not finding the...

    In today's America, men and women are not seeing eye to eye politically, and it's apparently now dictating their dating life. A new study from Bay Area polling firm Change Research released a study revealing "red flags" that millennial and Gen Z women see in men and according to the data, a few notable things top the list including identifying as a "MAGA Republican" and saying things like "All Lives Matter." The firm claims that listening to Joe Rogan is also a big turn-off for younger women. According to a Bay Area polling firm, young women consider MAGA Republicans and...

    Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has revealed that Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines could reduce the lifespan of vaccinated men by at least 24 years.The CDC data also revealed that the damage to health caused by each vaccine dose does not lessen over time. Instead, it continues indefinitely.
  • 'Manly' men won't buy electric cars because they think it will dent their macho image, study claims

    Electric vehicles (EVs) are often deemed the future of transport, with titans like Ford and Tesla racing to make them. But a new study reveals that 'more macho' men may not see this the same way, in the bizarre belief that EVs will harm their image. Dr Michael Parent, a researcher at the University of Texas at Austin (UT), claims that men who prioritise acting 'like a real man' are more likely to frown upon electric-powered cars. High-performance gasoline vehicles are instead preferred as a marker of masculinity, he says, raising an alarming and unexpected uncertainty for efforts against climate...
  • The US Open is switching tennis balls for women’s matches so they’re the same ones the men use

    AP News ^ | August 17, 2023 | Brian Mahoney
    Men and women will use the same tennis ball this year at the U.S. Open, satisfying some women who complained last year they were hitting an inferior product. Top-ranked Iga Swiatek — who eventually won the tournament — was among the women who felt their lighter ball didn’t hold its strength as long as the one that was used by men. The U.S. Open had been the only one of the four Grand Slam tournaments that used a different ball for men and women. Stacey Allaster, the U.S. Open’s tournament director, said Thursday that the type of ball being used...
  • Meet the stay-at-home dads: They're on the rise as more men drop out of work and skip college

    Andrew Ebright loves his job. It's the best thing he's ever done. For the past 18 months, he's been working as a stay-at-home dad, taking care of his son. It was a surprising pivot: When he met his now-wife 10 years ago, it was a path he told her he was completely uninterested in. "I just thought that that would be boring and a bad use of my skill set, and it would force me to do a lot of things that I'm not great at," Ebright, who previously worked as a lawyer, told Insider.

    A recent poll noted that among young people – are we back to Gen A yet? – the young female-identifying have shown themselves overwhelmingly leftist, while the young male-identifying have shown themselves overwhelmingly right-wing. That’s certainly better than all of them being commies. It seems somewhat bizarre that our country may eventually be saved by a bunch of dudes painted as couch-dwelling, video game-loving losers, but that salvation might not be pretty or gentle. Perhaps the battle of the sexes will go from a cold war to a hot one. But you have to take hope where you get it,...
  • NYPD seeks young men accused of hurling construction barrels at cop during Union Square riot

    The NYPD is searching for two young men who allegedly assaulted a cop during Twitch star Kai Cenat’s chaotic PS5 giveaway-turned-riot in Union Square Friday. The department on Tuesday released photos of two males wanted for allegedly hurling construction barrels at a 59-year-old cop, striking him in the head and body at about 3:45 p.m. The officer suffered multiple wounds including a head injury and both ran off. The two suspects are the latest delinquents involved in the massive melee to be wanted by police. On Sunday, cops announced they were looking for eight baby-faced teens caught on camera trashing...

  • We Didn’t Have Enough Men or Equipment and This Gave Russia Time to Dig in, Says Zelensky

    The world wondered why the long-discussed Ukrainian Spring offensive didn’t arrive until Summer, and now we know why, as Ukrainian President Zelensky says he simply didn’t have the men or the equipment to launch it any earlier. The Ukrainian counteroffensive didn’t start when expected because “frankly, we didn’t have enough munitions, armaments, not enough brigades properly trained in these weapons” to do so, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told the Aspen Security Forum on Friday. This delay gave Russian forces more time to dig in, he said, which further slowed progress once things actually started. He said it “provided Russia with...

    Earlier this year, the American Perspectives Survey collected data from a representative sample of more than 5,000 U.S. adults aged 18 and older. Here I’ll go through and share the results and some thoughts. Some of the findings are predictable. Other results are surprising. The survey found that women care a lot more about height than men do. 56% of women say they would be less likely to date someone who is “much shorter” than they are, while only 32% of men say they would be less likely to date someone who is taller. In other words, men are generally...

    The Economist ^ | 07/15/2023 | Soumaya Keynes
    When a friend opts to date someone who is old enough to be their parent, a common response is to see if the decision passes the “half their age plus seven” test. The rule, whose origins remain mysterious, has been passed down through generations as a way of justifying or, more commonly, pouring scorn on other people’s couplings. It’s fine for a 22-year-old to go out with an 18-year-old. It’s not ok for a 38-year-old to go out with a 23-year-old, however a 26-year-old would be fair game. The older you get, the wider the permissible age gap: a 50-year-old...

  • The Men Fight Back (After MeToo, a Regressive Vision of Masculinity Became Increasingly Popular.)

    Mother Jones ^ | JUNE 15, 2023 | Eamon Whalen
    After MeToo, a regressive vision of masculinity became increasingly popular. Here’s a guide.More than five years ago, the MeToo movement exploded and our culture shifted. But what actually changed? This project seeks to reexamine the era by asking how it will alter the lives of the next generation. One of the consequences of the revelations that many prominent men behaved poorly in private was a very public effort to grapple with the whole concept of masculinity. Boys have long been mired in a well-publicized and seemingly endless “crisis.” But MeToo raised another question: Who would speak to these men? Over...
  • Loss of Y chromosome in men enables cancer to grow, finds new study (Immune checkpoint inhibitors work better on tumors with this problem)

    Medical Xpress / Cedars-Sinai Medical Center / Nature ^ | June 21, 2023 | Dan Theodorescu, MD, Ph.D. et al
    As men age, some of their cells lose the very thing that makes them biological males—the Y chromosome—and this loss hampers the body's ability to fight cancer, according to research. The study found that loss of the Y chromosome helps cancer cells evade the body's immune system. This common impact of the aging process in men results in aggressive bladder cancer, but somehow also renders the disease more vulnerable—and responsive—to a standard treatment called immune checkpoint inhibitors. In humans, each cell normally has one pair of sex chromosomes; men have one X and one Y chromosome, while women have two...

    With his slicked back hair and carefully practised smile, he might look your ordinary Los Angeles surgeon. However Dr Shahab Mahboubian does not specialise in age-defying face lifts, boob jobs or any other Hollywood-loved op. Instead, he focuses solely on lengthening limbs — an eye-watering procedure which can make someone six inches taller. Yet it can cost up to $170,000 (£134,000).

    Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed legislation this week stating that biological men cannot participate on women’s college sports teams, and vice versa. The law, which passed with overwhelming majorities in both the Alabama House and Senate, builds upon an existing 2021 law that regulated K–12 sports teams. “If you’re a biological male, you are not going to be competing in women’s and girls’ sports in Alabama. It’s about fairness, plain and simple,” Ivey tweeted after signing HB 261.
