I’ve been writing an article on the subject of testosterone decline for a while (it’s in the drafts, I keep getting distracted) but Alt-Hype just released this excellent video on the topic, so I’m scrapping the article. You should watch this video:
Health, Politics, Statistics and Data
Very interesting, thanks. Older folk, if they are honest and observant, have clearly experienced the world getting loonier with each passing year. Young people with no lived experience, would not be able to see this. When I meet a young person who thinks for themselves, I’m shocked, because my personal perception of young people, is that they all think alike.
Mr. Faulk is definitely a top guy in the Right-Wing circles (assuming he’d identity as such, but i think he fits the definiton), his content is invaluable.
I have personally started to try and be more active & healthy; exercise & eat better, and also try learning more things and do so better. If anything is a motivator for it, it’s what i have learned through my political journey.
Love Ryan. He’s a bit crazy but his content just works. I credit him for singlehandedly waking me up to race and IQ and that led to me gradually rejecting all the other tenets of liberalism within a few months.
The Right needs more people like him, data-literate independent academics who have original things to say and not just “commentators.”
I don’t think he’s crazy at all but I agree. Difficult when all of academia is dominated by Globalists though. They don’t even tolerate Liberal Jews like David Reich, he gets accused of being a Nazi merely for saying “actually, the social construct of race pretty much exactly aligns with genetic reality.”
Yea, you, alt-hype, and academic agent are the only 3 right wingers i really know of that are actually committed to the cause. That isnt to say there arent other smart people on the right, like JFG for instance, just that they made it clear that they are black pilled or arent willing to risk their income or quality of life just for their ideas.
People are coming to the conclusion that it is environmental factors that are causing testosterone to decrease and they may very well be correct. Indeed I think that is likely a cause. However I am going to play Devils advocate and say that declining Testosterone is behaviorally caused. That is behavior directly impacts hormone production.
What I mean is that we have associated behavioral traits with testosterone as if testosterone causes these traits and not the other way around. Perhaps it is being honest, courageous and rugged that cause an increase in testosterone levels and since we have “simpified” our culture we no longer express those behaviors and we see the decrease in testosterone production as a result.
Some anecdotal evidence: lifting weights increases testosterone. I certainly feel an increase in my vitality not only after a heavy lift, but also if I do other things like get in a confrontation and express myself honestly, or get a “win”
Just something to think about
Test decline is impacted by a variety of things but engaging in certain types of behavior does boost testosterone. It’s probably more accurate to say that certain types of behavior are vital to maintaining a healthy endocrine system.
Agreed. I’ll just say that your body is on a use it or lose it operating system. Doing manly things will increase test, being effeminate will decrease it. All other factors which contribute to are also valid.
As someone with a high bizygomatic width I question whether utilised testosterone fully correlates with facial width. There could be genes that serve as developmental regulators in that region of the body which supress osteogenesis. I’ve seen a lot of very strong athletes with compressed facial width and a lot of unhealthy and unmasculine people with wide brachycephal faces. So I think it’s a little more comolex than that.
