Setting a breeding standard--predictably on-brand for these Nazis / conservatives as a whole--is perhaps one of the most consistently reliable ways they prove they're incapable of understanding how normal human psychology works and should never be given power over others in any related realm.

The reason I can't take it seriously when older people complain about modern men being too feminine is that most of them should, theoretically, remember the 1970s.

or they were over-counting in the 1970s, when humans looked at live sperm in a microscope and used a pencil to record the results, vs today when computers do it.

There was a catchy song in about 1926 about it...

Masculine women, feminine men
Which is the rooster, which is the hen?
It's hard to tell 'em apart today

Sister is busy learning to shave
Brother just loves his permanent wave
It's hard to tell 'em apart today

Girls were girls and boys were boys when I was a tot
Now we don't know who is who or even what's what!

Unless they're comparing the same group of men during that time period, in which case it simply reinforces the first (you'd expect a man who's 40 in 1973 to have a lower sperm count 38 years later). The phrasing is a little weird though; are they only comparing sperm counts in two years? Why those two years?

Fascists are really into this kind of thinking. Mussolini pushed an ideal of men based on the Roman farmer/warrior from the republic's era.

Rural men were stronger, more virile and overall better than effete city folk with their book learnings.

And that's how Italy, in spite of vastly outnumbering the Brits in North Africa, kept getting their asses kicked. No amount of manliness could overcome some pansy Brit with schooling using maths to manage the logistics for their outnumbered men.

And that problem is likely environmental pollution.

If the Republican'ts really cared they'd be working to clean up the environment instead of working to make life easier for polluters.

Over the years I have known feminine straight men, masculine gay men, and women of both varieties.  There are a lot of people who don't easily fit into either category.  I have never been a girly girl, was called a tomboy back in the day, I liked to climb trees, ride my bike, make toys out of random things laying around the house and never really was into dolls.  This labeled me a tomboy.  I didn't care then and don't care now.

One thing that is interesting; I worked in a day care for 10 years and I can tell you that leaning to one gender or another starts very young.  The saddest thing was when boys were feminine and their fathers were so disappointed and distant with them because of it.  Also girls who were not feminine being forced by their mothers to dress up, wear makeup, paint their nails etc.  Let your kid be your kid no matter what they are like, don't push them to be what YOU think they should be.

When I was a kid my Dad used to say "you will never get married if you keep acting like a tomboy" and "quit being so smart all the time, boys don't like girls who are smarter than them"....funny thing is I never did get married!  I had a few opportunities but I like freedom.  lol

But seriously, he made me feel like a flawed person.  No kid should have to feel that something is wrong with them because of what their parents/peers/society deciding that everyone should fit some mold.

Well, obviously, the only REAL solution is to get those wimmins back in the kitchen and out of the work force. When they got the idea that they could have jobs and not rely on men for their living, it skewed things entirely out of control.

Sounds pretty "Eugenic-y" to me...

They need to get over this idea also that clothes define gender...Clothes are cloth...Cloth does not care
who wears it..It has no magical powers to engender anything..It's cloth..
