Let's not forget... We are all being chemically poisoned.... All of us, as in both sexes. However, men seem to be getting hit the hardest.
I've noticed this for awhile now, and everytime I bring this up with anyone (both sexes) They will usually tell me something like "ohhh... you're just paranoid... The amount of chemicals we encounter in our daily lives are too minute to cause any serious damage". Evidence never cuts it for them, they are like little children... They need to touch it in order to believe it, I swear to god.. These idiots make me so angry!!!!!!!
Sometimes I feel as if I'm living in a nightmare... I actually found myself saying wake-up, over and over again once. Actually believing that I would soon wake-up from this horrible nightmare that is my life.... I probably sound so crazy.
WELL I AM GOD DAMN IT! But my finger... is pointed at the world. For it is the world that I blame, not me.

Well that was more or less as insightful as your other post.
So are you concerned that the pesticides are turning men emo? Or were you simply poking fun?

You gave a fabulous response, LOL. Tee hee.
All kidding aside, this involves a seemingly infinite array of ramifications, implications, and related phenomena. I am conveying information in a precise, organized, hierarchical manner, so that none of you ostensibly sentient beings misunderstand my true self as being too fluid, too receptive, too tuned in to the sound, too integrational, etc. See, I am not a girl, I am a man dammit! Now, all kidding truly AND dearly aside.
When I think about all the estrogenic compounds flooding the world, and especially certain industrialized nations, my thoughts turn kaleidoscopic, and I see so many things tying together, coming to points of convergence, tying up loose ends.
Obviously, these compounds have had profound effects on us as well as other species. Why are there these compounds out there in the first place? There is the obvious: We use fertilizers, birth control pills, plastics, and all other sorts of estrogenic agents that, naturally, don't sprout wings and fly into outer space. They stay here to affect us, all of us. This much is obvious to just about any and all.
Any other why? Maybe not. But it is very interesting that the feminine has been rising in the West for centuries now. Carl Jung mentioned anima rising. Tesla predicted that queen bees would rule the world. Men have never reconciled the public definition of manhood, long since the second society said he must not even see his own emotions, much less be in tune with them. Just as women have never quite reconciled that they are not allowed to display any focused aspect of the in-tune nature they were supposed to have with their own emotions. IMHO, both men and women have been shafted. Divide and conquer works so well to keep the master/slave paradigm. But it makes everyone a slave.
The mirrored aspect is also quite interesting. Women becoming more masculine. Men becoming more feminine. Many secret orders have long desired a convergence of masculine and feminine, and they have actively engaged in metaprogramming to bring it about. Heck, lone individuals have even engaged in such metaprogramming (Look it up, it is a cool word, and you might learn something. One easy way to look at it would be by considering the concept of memes, which many of you are familiar with.). Besides, a NATURAL mirroring process occurs. Domination and manipulation exist hand in hand. To stereotype for illustration, (I am not putting ANYONE in a box) man will not desire to dominate a woman if and only if he perceives that she will not exploit him through manipulation. Woman will not desire to manipulate a man if and only if she perceives that he does not want to exploit her through domination. For the man, the woman has been his looking glass. For the woman, the man has been her looking glass. Each was to observe until, BAM!, it all clicked and the other half is understood and the masculine and the feminine can actually touch, meet, see each other.
I also think, however peculiar it might sound to some of you, that our desires, hopes and fears, and faith is reflected in every aspect of the world. I have many reasons for believing such, but it is beyond the scope of this post. I am just saying that it fits that estrogenic compounds are flooding society now. Do I think men should be weak little twits? Heck no, a guy guy can care, can love, can be receptive to spiritual things, and he can still be strong, a compelling force that demands a wrong be righted.. And yes, I do think women have actively encouraged, while simultaneously bemoaning, the "feminine" man. Women, can you really not understand why men would have a caricaturized view of femininity? Heck, it has been one of the few weapons in your arsenal, to enchant men through glittery illusions of what it is to be feminine. But it is obviously not your fault. You were not permitted to be active, so you were forced to be subversive. The men were oh-so turned on by that impish grin on such an "innocent" body. Grrrrr. Uh. Ahhhhhh......And men, are you really surprised that women have a caricaturized view of masculinity, as you have always strutted like a peacock around them, only to act differently with your brothers? It is not your fault, however, as women demanded you be their thuggish strongmen, as they were not allowed to do their own dangerous work. They were oh-so turned on by the fact that you would destroy everything, in order to shield her. You were making quite the sacrifice. You were a dick to others, but a stocking stuffer for her. OoOoOoOoOoOoO! MMMM....
This is only my opinion, and it could very possibly change, although I see it a view pinned quite near the center of the "O," quite near the center of the circle of our current reality. It is also my opinion that it is quite possible that the polarities could flip among some individuals, most likely the more selfish, disregarding the "other" types. I think the non-fakers are more likely to converge into a fluid and focused being.
I know I went on a grand, stream-of-consciousness rant, albeit a gentle one. But I do think it is interesting how this story ties into something greater....in my eye. Or maybe the women are conspiring against us (face_paranoid) to neuter all the faker men, so that they can rule all men but one, and they can lick the feet of the one true alpha. Who knows.

None of the material I presented speaks to sexual preference and its causation issues.

Study Links Soy to Lower Sperm Counts
Eating even small amounts of soy products may cut a man's sperm concentration, a study published online last Thursday in the journal Human Reproduction shows.
Of the 99 men enrolled in the study, those who said they ate the most soy had much lower sperm concentrations than those who reported eating no soy. Soy eaters had, on average, 41 million fewer sperm per milliliter than those who avoided soy products. That association held up after other factors potentially affecting sperm health, such as smoking, alcohol and caffeine intake, age, abstinence time and body mass index were considered.
Consumption of the study's 15 soy-based foods, from miso soup and tofu to soy burgers, ice cream and energy bars, was low, an average of one serving every other day among the highest-consuming group.
And interesting enough is this article presenting a unique point of view:
The assault clearly comes from many fronts...
