The Unmanly Tinkering!

I am making a prediction, no wait, a very dire prediction.
Unless an antidotal intervention arises on the horizon very soon, there will be no more 'real' men around in the next 100 to 200 years. That is if we are still here by then.
There is a growing body of evidence that suggest that more and more men are developing breasts and many other anatomical features commonly associated with the fairer gender.
With the increasing inundation of our food and water sources with growth hormones which are mostly oestrogen-based formulas, men are becoming, in a real sense, what they are eating and drinking!
Almost every meat and dairy produce in the supermarket today is sourced from commercial farms where insanely high doses of these growth hormones are administered to the livestock to induce a supercharged rate of growth and maturation for quick profit .
Again the sewerage-treatment facilities in many cities were not designed to trap these growth hormones thereby leading to high oestrogen concentrations in our supposedly treated water! The water flowing in the taps is literally not male-friendly.
With double D cap size frontals, an unsightly goods-train proportion of body and belly, and x-large package of emotions, welcome the hormones-tinkered species of a man!

Effing scary!!! I have kind of made this observation subconsciously. Thanks for bringing it out!So scary!

Scary indeed!
Do't want to sound nutty but I am beggining to think of sourcing my meat requirements from the rural parts of Gauteng, where livestock are reared free-ranged.
I am already growing vegetables in my garden as naturally as possible. Perhaps, we need to adopt measures to counter the war on manhood.

asem se be...!

ogarnic food is the way to go!

and the market forces perhaps have realised this and so 'artificially fertilized-chicken' is far cheaper than real chick... and they (the market forces play on our 'sweet' taste glands and our 'aromatic-senses to continue their loot of our naturality...

and it's not what we just eat or drink... its also about what we breath (air freshers)...what we bath with and what we cream etc...

i hope the world wakes up to all these things... while the tiny bits like me are just caught in the middle...

else soon i would have to do with seeing my 'fully?' male grandchild breastfeeding his own child while the wife is away running around in her jeans pants...

cheers man!

Hi Novisi,
The scenario of your male grandchild breatfeeding his own child... is heartfully hilarious!
But hey, that shows that we really need to wake and call for strigent regulation of the food industry.

Hmm, interesting observations Posekyere. One wonders if this can also be attributed to the opening of many 'closet' doors. Watched an interesting programme this weekend that was looking at the issue of homosexuality and whether persons were 'born' like this, or simply choose to be as they are. The jury still seems to be out on this. Though granted your observations could give a plausible explanation for men - i.e. exposure from conception to higher doses of oestrogen even through the mother's diet and then of course after birth, hence more female-type genes and tendencies. Curious correlation?

Good to see you visited today!
The correlations and permutations, as you said, are simply too strong to warrant a strong inference.
Someone said that there are three genders: male, female and the confused.
Hyper-oestrogenation in the womb, the mother's milk, Hormone Replacement Therapy(HRT) and, of course, the sources already mentioned could probably explain the emergence of the 'third gender'.
It requires an objective research to ascertain the role of oestrogen
in this particular phenomenon.

Great fun post but sadly it's true - I was reading the other day that in the UK the demand for cosmetic surgery to reduce man breasts (what an awful term) was on the rise...!!!
Have a great day..:)

posekyere said...

Gee whiz!
Whilst the cosmetic surgeons laugh all the way to the bank treating the symptoms of the disorder,
the roots of the issue have been left still sprouting in the ground.
Thanks for your comments, pal.
