When out and about in modern Swedish society, or indeed anywhere non-rural in Europe, I am amazed at how many supposedly grown men are gracile, gangly, lack muscle and breadth of face and bone structure and how comparatively few have a real beard growth in their twenties and even thirties. I can't be the only one to notice this phenomenon. Back in the day, it was really unusual for a man as young as 16-18 to not have a full beard. They were ridiculed and called "beardless wonders", and the like. When I go out, I sometimes wonder if we are the same species anymore. How did this happen? Why are modern males far less manly than the men of before? I would like your own theories on this. I have a few which I will share. I always do share. I do not think this androgynous degeneration is natural or part of an evolution. We are still cro magnon men and women, DNA-wise. I think the important difference lies in what is called epigenetics. It has to do with environmental factors such as diet, physical activity and basically external factors. How many modern males grow up without regular physical labor, these days? How many don't train physically - martial arts etc - most days of the week? How many don't eat truly homecooked food made from single ingredients? How many grow up without playing outside in sun, rain and snow? How many are raised to remain little boys until they are formally adult? How many are taught that fighting and male behavior is evil, aggressive and undesirable? How many are exposed to dangerous hormone-altering chemicals on a daily basis? The answer is quite simple: most males grow up without proper stimuli, diet, guidance, activities or identity. Most modern people are full of heavy metals and chemicals that wreak havoc in the human body. This is a horrible cocktail of environmental factors that create this new modern breed of paedomorphic males. At least it is my take on it. Another problem with this is that it seems like a very hard thing to undo in adult age, after you stop growing. Some manage, somehow, and become actual men eventually, albeit late. But most office drones and others remain in a degenerated state which would look utterly foreign to our burly and robust ancestors. I have had experiences when I punch some leftist (with reason) and they break down crying. That is decidedly not a man reacting to being punched. On the upside, going to the gym still means I meet plenty of men who do not look or act like half-retarded gay elf-children with sticks for arms and no beards. Many do shave, but it is mostly the growth I mean. Even if I do not understand the practice of shaving at all, personally. Is this the root cause of why we are in such a mess nowadays? Weak and childish males, unworthy of being called men? I tend to think so. Our robuster forebears did get subverted in several stages, which allowed this evil cocktail of environmental factors to develop over time. We are seeing the end result of it. Thankfully, we are also seeing a sort of revolution against it based around physical training, healthy organic food, growing large beards and retrieving male culture. The political side of things is the rising nationalist sentiments in the West. Hopefully, these changes that are taking root will change future generations to be, quite frankly, less gay. As it stands, much of the male half of western humanity is as friggin' gay as Alex Jones' famed frogs.
