Less of this Ballsy Little Stuff?
Testosterone, that most male of hormones, takes a dive after a man becomes a parent. And the more he gets involved in caring for his children -- changing diapers, jiggling the boy or girl on his knee, reading "Goodnight Moon" for the umpteenth time -- the lower his testosterone drops.
And all this time, I'd considered my two children as empirical evidence for my virility! Instead, their presence announces that I'm less
manly than ever. They literally deplete a man's masculinity! Who knew
kids were so dangerous for men? I wish I could cry out "Bollocks
" at this report, but only a "Truther
" could deny the experimental evidence.
By the way, Ms Belluck's surname only incidentally recalls "bollocks," and I mention this point merely to dismiss any connection that you might be making, for any implied link could only be ironic, and Gypsy Scholar doesn't do irony, so I should go on to report about the positive side that scientists find to the fatherhood drop in vital testosterone, but I just can't bring myself to care anymore, now that I see the truth about Mother Nature's insidious ways . . .
