It's "why do men die before their wives?"

They want to.

Pretty sure the Incels and MGTOWs will blame it on society
Probably start with men being in more brutal occupations(but don't dare open those occupations to women) then talk about only men serve in combat(see previous note) then stress of the unfairness of being forced to pay child support causing men to be virtual slaves who can't take a day off, and probably mentioning how women and children go first in life boats

HRT helps very much. Interesting that all of the health problems HRT works to reduce in women are considered "normal" aging for men.

Women get HRT in a hot flash, but the magic number* is all that matters for men.

* 400 ng/dL in EU
300 ng/dL by the FDA guidance
175 ng/dL for Kaiser patients.

Not smoking? Not drinking? No fast food or risky behaviour?

Life just feels longer.

As an Incel and follower of MTGOW I would like to thank you for helping us out by typing all that. It's such a hard and demanding life to be evil. Those Trump rallies, protesting the covid vaccine, try to shut down those pesky pet rescues organizations, one just can't find the time.

Say, it seams you follow a couple of your reddits. You want in on our next action? we're going to all the women's bathrooms and lifting the seats up. Then we're heading out to all the area high schools an encouraging all young women to stay out of high paying, high risk jobs. Now if you joins us on the last one, secrecy and stealth is the key. No one has every caught us doing that, so don't be the first dude in history to get caught!

Men die sooner cause they're sick of women's shiat, but women like that because we don't have to listen to your stupid pointless stories anymore.

*shrug*

I've seen obese land mammals of all the genders, but men seem to recoil in horror at anything resembling vegetables.

In the past I'd say it's because women spend their days at home not dealing with stressful job environments as much. These days I wonder if there's any data showing as women work more the gap in them living longer getting smaller and smaller. I would also be curious to see if stay at home dads live longer then the working mom's.

My two IRRITANTS together in a tidy package, all in this thread. 

1. I actually have to reset my aviation-addled mind every time I see MGTOW and go off thinking exactly that. "WTH are they mixing take-off weight in a discussion about X non-airplane thing?" and then I remember the time I went to urban dictionary to find out what kind of gross slime the Internet had scraped off from under a rock this time. Fark those guys with a splintered gympie branch

2. The Karen I went out with was sweet, horny, easygoing, had her mind in the same gutter mine has always inhabited, and we spent a great year rolling around either laughing or farking; we could never finish any horror movie because fright led to hugs, hugs led to... and the movie remained unwatched forever. This sudden disconnect between my fond memories of Karen and the harridans that name describes actually hurts a bit, like when one takes a wrong step and the knee briefly goes the wrong way. Why can't they all be called Magda?

If you can't be bothered to read TFA: We don't really know, a lot of it is due to smoking, the rest is what people do and what is done to them but that is messy so who can tell? Less than you would think is due purely to biology.

I always heard the answer as "Because they can". Same sentiment.

The more dangerous jobs tend to be dominated by men. That might be a factor.

Childbirth doesn't kill as many women young anymore (Thanks birth control and Roe V Wade!)

Young men still do stupid risky sh8t like DUIs and getting into fights with other stupid young men with guns and knives.

Us ladies will need to smoke and drink and use meth a whole bunch more to make up the Stupid Young Man gap.

women live longer due to the impact of the menstrual cycle.

men die sooner because they want to.

Maximum Gross Take Off Weight. The total weight limit an aircraft is designed to be able to become airborne (ramp weight can be higher). That's the only definition you need to remain happy and fulfilled as a human being, believe me.

And that is the equality version. A song written by a man for a woman who left him, sung by the woman who left him for the guy playing the drums on the song they are singing.

They said that they were just making too much money to let anything get in the way of that.

That was a lot of money.
