Deplete my sperm to zero, I ain't makin no babbies.  My dong could be a little thinner, though.

And leaving one as impotent as a Nevada Boxing Commissioner.

Had to buy a suit cause if I was going to be impotent, I was gonna look impotent.

Gotta love the "It'll make your dick more littler!" nonsense that folks break out when they've got nothing of value but need someone, somewhere, to be afraid of something.

Luckily I don't like children and have no intention of having any, so it doesn't matter to me at all.

\and really, with the way humans are destroying the planet, anyone having children these days should be considered child abusers.

You know what else chemicals are doing to your penis? Making it exists.

When Swan told news website Axios "If you look at the curve on sperm count and project it forward" she was encouraging unjustifiable and unscientific interpretation of her data-even though she acknowledged it was "risky" to extrapolate in this way. Unfortunately this caution is too often unmentioned.

Once you realize that Axios is all innuendo and conjecture in bullet point form, it makes you stop worrying about the panicky soundbites that they regularly produce.

Professor Shanna Swan, a US epidemiologist who studies environmental influences on human development, recently published a  new book called Countdown.

I've seen this one on PornHub:

Professor Shanna Swan, I need to see you about my problem

Well, let's just take a look at your problem....   Oh yeah.  It's a big problem.  Let me look closer.

Professor!  Your ethics!

Ethics?  How about my tongue?   Ummmm

There was a movie a long time ago, with Lily Tomlin in which by accident combined different household chemicals and wound up shrinking.

Just had one. The way I walk around with my credit card constantly out, I wish someone had abused me this way.

It is refreshing to read an article discussing how irresponsibly ran some of these studies are ran.

The pitch meeting went well.

Scientist: I need a grant to prove chemicals we use today shrink penises.
Bank: uhm...you got proof of this claim?
Scientist: (unzips pants)
Bank: Marge? How soon can we cut a check for this guy?

Good. Because if mine gets any smaller, it will inverse and get larger again. This will be a net gain for me.

/probably make peeing a little weird though.

So it's the forever chemicals that are making me want to buy the upcoming all-electric Hummer.

"Blaming chemicals in the environment overlooks other important factors such as chronic disease, diet, and obesity, which people can act on to improve their fertility."

Because surely people couldn't act on environmental factors...

She has also warned these chemicals are shrinking penis size.

Dr. Swan is a size queen.

Since genital size is determined before birth,

Who determines that? Is it like God and the Chief Genital Architect Angel working through the wiener sizes of all the babies on todays conceived list:

CHAA: "5 inches, 5.5 inches, 5.2 inches, 6.5 inches, 5.8 inches, 6 inches, 4.2 inches, 5--"
God: "This is boring. Make that one 8."
CHAA: "Sir, you're messing up my system, you can't just--"
God: "Wait, is there a limit? We can do 12 right?"
CHAA: "That's not how--"
God: "Wait, this is going to be hilarious. Give that dude 14, and the next one half an inch. It's all going to average out. I want to see what happens. Now, about thickness..."

4 smarts for insisting half of the US population are inhuman monsters on the level with those who beat or rape children simply for having children. Wow.

The data is large enough to reach a definitive climax conclusion

"isn't" ..... dammit

While I agree that the evidence isn't airtight, it is something to be concerned about and look at carefully, and perhaps to take proactive precautions.  There is significant evidence that suggests these chemicals may adversely affect sperm count.  Could there be other factors instead of or in addition to that?  Yes, but if we can find reasonable alternatives to these chemicals or a way to make them inert before being released into the environment, we should probably look into it.  Will the human race go extinct if this problem isn't solved?  It's highly unlikely, and that's a stupid farking statement.  Population growth may slow down (and already has), and population may even decline somewhat, but there will still be enough fertile people to ensure th  at humanity will continue.  Not saying that's a good thing for the planet, but that's a discussion for a different day.The part about shrinking penises is pure shiat, and detracts from the more important issue.

A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.

Well, the globalist that say there are too many people in the world, should be happy then.
If less people can have children, the world would be better off in their warped minds.
