[insert ridiculous pants meme here]
Over the past 10 years or so there's been this trend, amongst certain demographics, of males wearing excessively tight jeans (from ankles to testes).
For a lot of males, observing them in play is like a culture shock. Traditionally "capri" pants, for example, were the domain of females. And for
them they can wear as tight as -whatever- they want down low, as their reproductive organs are built on the inside. For males this just isnt the case,
and for specific biological reasons.
"Any exposure [to heat] that significantly increases temperature is likely to affect spermatogenesis [or sperm production]," says Dr. Jorge
Chavarro, associate professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and an author on the study. "That's the
main reason we have scrotums and testes that are external to the abdomen." By hanging below the torso, testicles stay cooler — by about 4 to 6
degrees, typically — than the rest of the body. That helps them make happy, functional sperm cells. But when you slap on a pair of briefs, that
natural cooling system is disrupted. Your dangly bits are held close to your abdomen and they heat up, harming sperm production.
The temperature of the testes is at issue: In order for testes to produce sufficient quality and quantity of sperm, the temperature of testes must
be lower than the core body temperature. "That is why [testes] are located outside of the body," explains Celia E. Dominguez, reproductive
endocrinologist, Center for Reproductive Medicine at the Emory University School of Medicine. "Testes were made to be out in the breeze." Testes can
overheat when a man wears brief underwear. If the testes are too hot -- several degrees above where they should be -- they are not able to produce
sufficient sperm, resulting in low sperm count.
Although men continue to make fresh sperm, the quality decreases with age. So contrary to popular belief, men over 40 are about half as fertile as
men under 25. This means it may take longer for their partner to become pregnant. www.bbc.co.uk...
Now whats fascinating is how the sorts most likely to get into wearing such pants, at all, let alone as a norm, typically tend to be of the type to be
into what people are these days calling "liberal politics". I suppose the logic goes that tight pants is a "gender roles" sort of issue, and
they're all about squashing that sort of jazz these days.
Now for some of us, observing this mass obsession with gender studies, and all their variants on sexuality, well plain and simple, Thomas Malthus (the
original population control maniac) point blank suggested compelling the population towards homosexuality in order to prevent the population exploded
beyond the "carrying capacity" of the lands.
So now in the modern era, we have the "liberal" politicians and their ilk for decades running now screaming about the Earth being over-populated to
the scope of every degree of literal apocalypse, unless something is done about it. So de-urbanization coupled with various appeals (some veiled, some
not so much) has been like daily milk & cookies for a lot of these types, quite frankly stuff that can be traced back to this sort of noise has been
more and more the outright DNC (the supposed "liberal" party) platform over the past decade.
I suppose the one main plank of this "new liberalism platform", its still heavily obsessed with open borders and mass migration of poor immigrants.
Now if one digs deep into their logic, the point that a diminishing population is a literal disaster on a quazi-socialist economy. Just look at what
happened to Russia post-Cold War, or for a more specific direction dig into what would happen to Social Security if there werent enough people paying
into it to cover the older generations. But I'm digressing.
What we know for sure is that poor people reproduce more than those whom are not (much like poverty is the worst thing possible for local
environments). Yet importing poverty is also, apparently, the agenda. The point is, its obvious there's a de-population agenda within that brand of
politics, whether its subscribers acknowledge it or not, its so entrenched that the "Media At Large" that has handed them their fashion trend (which
I surmise started with MTV's "Emo" scene) has instituted nut hugging garments that lowers their sperm count, yet assuming de-populating the earth
is a worthy and logical agenda, in my view their moves towards that end are scattershot and misguided at best. Which begs other questions...
