You may have seen articles about how men have low t, short for low testosterone.
My last two articles dealt with shame and fat acceptance. These articles deal with women. In the interest of fairness, I’m going to point to the most significant health crisis on the male horizon.
I can feel in myself that my testosterone levels are tapering off. That aggression, the desire to nail anything that already hasn’t been nailed down. Those feelings aren’t as intense. If I value my mental health, which I do, then I will need to make sure that I don’t have low t.
I’ve definitely experienced the negative repercussions of being low t. It happens to me when I let myself get fat and am inactive. Low t lead to heightened instances of wallowing and depressive thoughts.
All I have to do is spend an hour down the gym or an hour writing, ideally both, but not both at the same time.
The low t of modern men has led to many memes about the soylent grin, soy boys, beta males and the most popular term “cuck”.
It is looking like men are going down a deep t rabbit hole, and you should prepare yourself accordingly.
Before you read any further, let me give you a disclaimer.
I am not a doctor, and none of this should be considered to be factual. The following should not be taken as advice either. I’m just a lowly popcorn shoveller. This article is mainly speculative and hypothetical.
With that being said let us crack on.
Why are men low t?
You could say that there are many reasons why men are low t. What follows won’t be an exhaustive list by any stretch but let’s name a few.
1 Men can get away with being low t
You and I are living in one of the safest points of history. Crime is at an all-time low. The threat of war, famine and disease is not what it once was. You and I don’t need violence in the same way that we once did. Back in a more primitive time, it would have been necessary for a man to use force to resolve a dispute. You and I are descended from the most aggressive of men. Those men would have had higher testosterone. Seeing as aggression and testosterone are linked.
Now we live in a safer more “civilised” time. Violence is considered a wrong way to resolve problems. If you use force, you risk societal punishment. Now you have the courts and the state who can mete out revenge on your behalf.
In short, you do not face any consequence for being low t. Most men are ignorant of the importance of testosterone, so they let their’s slide.
Our environment is estrogenic.
You and I are living in an environment of heightened estrogenisation. Everywhere around you, some elements mean to feminise you. Now let me be clear, there is nothing wrong with feminisation if you’re a woman. If you’re a man that is a recipe for disaster.
Sugar: I don’t know how much this is estrogenic. Sugar is a substance that you can feel slowing you down as you consume. I’m actually gone off it for September and even though I’m only a few days in I can feel that my energy levels are on the rise. While sugar may not be estrogenic exclusively, it definitely has energy sapping qualities.
Beer: I don’t know about you, but I don’t drink beer. I can drink one if I am forced to do so, but I try to avoid getting forced to drink one. I used to drink beer when I was younger. Not that I ever like the taste, but it just was the done thing to do whenever you went for drinks. It always left me feeling bloated. Beer is not good. I know it’s cool but alcohol and beer, in particular, reduce your testosterone levels.
It’s “bad” to be a man
This one is probably the least damaging, but it may be having an effect. In society, it’s terrible to be a full-blooded male. Even though that is secretly what we need. There has been a massive backlash against men. We’re few in the universities we’re high in the suicides. The worst thing is that men today take women at their word.
To sound like a complete sexist, women don’t know what they want.
Ever tried to get them to tell you what kind of food they want?
Thought as much.
We have listened to them so much that we’ve cucked ourselves out of the gene pool. Women want high t males so bad that they’ve started importing men. Men from cultures that are positively backwards when it comes to attitudes to women. I’m not saying a backwards position is a bad attitude, it’s just not in keeping with what we were told what is right.
Can this damage be undone?
Yes, all you have to do is realise that if you are a man, you’re a man, not a defective woman.
Estrogen is even in the water you’re drinking.
Did you know that the hormones in the female birth control pill can’t be removed from the drinking water?
It can’t be done.
My mum, a scientist, told me this and at first, I just thought, hmm that’s funny and never let it concern me. However is it me or has there been a massive uptick in the number of people declaring themselves transsexual?
I know that correlation is not causation, but you’ll be thinking about this in a few months time.
What does low t mean?
Low t is terrible for society as a whole. Low testosterone leads to depression, and it has negative repercussions for personal relationships.
Testosterone is a wonder drug. As well as leading to heightened aggression it also makes you more decisive. Testosterone makes more able to improvise and in general, if you’re a man, makes you happy.
You owe it to yourself. More important, your mental health will benefit when you make your testosterone as high as possible.
What can you do?
It’s simple. You engage your legs you commit that part of your system that says “start making testosterone.”
The answer to low t is universal and can be summed up like this:
Squat deep and lift heavy.
