Hormones and obesity

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

There is an epidemic of obesity, and no one knows what is causing it.

One item, however, is worthy of investigation. Females with early andrenarche, (early pubic hair) in addition to going boy crazy at a disturbingly early age, tend to become obese when they finally reach puberty and their figure finally catches up with their behavior and further enables their behavior.

And these days, pretty much all girls have what once would have been called early andrenarche. So, abnormal hormones first, abnormal fat later.

So, could be that whatever is causing the obesity epidemic, is the same thing as in causing declining masculinity in males and early sexual behavior in females.

Note that the absence of a father is risk factor for early andrenarche, suggesting that the problem might not be estrogen in the water supply, but metaphorical estrogen in the metaphorical water supply.

In the ancestral environment, early sexual behavior in fatherless females would have been a survival mechanism. In the absence of a father, and the absence of Uncle Sam the big pimp, need a sugar daddy. So, when the state makes fathers weak, that weakness tends to make their daughters into fat sluts.

If early andrenarche correlates with obesity, the interesting question, to which I don’t have the answer, is: Does late (by modern standards) andrenarche correlate to less obesity? Obviously it correlates to less promiscuity.

Andrenarche can be delayed by the drug spironolactone, (safe for girls, unsafe for boys) and parents alarmed by early sexual behavior sometimes treat their daughters to delay andrenarche – the humane and reversible alternative to clitoridectomy. Perhaps all girls should have andrenarche delayed to what used to be normal. Pubic hair is an indicator of sexual interest – you probably don’t want your daughters developing pubic hair earlier than their other secondary sexual characteristics.

The degeneration of Britain

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Three facts that have recently been in the news:

  1. The reversal of the Flynn effect.  The British youth of today really are dumber.
  2. Violence, drunkenness, laddie, and home invasion burglaries, where drunken lads smash into someone’s house and terrify the inhabitants.  The British crime rate is about double the US crime rate, and threatens everyone, whereas the US crime rate is very low outside areas with large numbers of protected minorities.
  3. Cowardice and surrender by the British army – for example humiliating capitulations in Basra, Helmund province, and the Persian gulf.

I conjecture a common cause for all three:  About a quarter of British children lack a natural father, about half lack a natural father at some stage, a problem caused by welfare and easy out divorce laws with that favor women leaving their husbands.  Also, there are few male authority figures in primary and secondary education, a problem worsened by dumbing down and feminizing traditionally male subjects such as maths and science in an effort to close the achievement gap between boys and girls.

Bastard children tend to be stupid and violent:  Mothers nurture, fathers discipline.  Not “Fathers traditionally discipline, Mothers  traditionally discipline”, but rather natural fathers, (not step fathers) are innately inclined to discipline, mothers innately inclined to nuture.

Bastard male children tend to be unmanly.

The reason that lack of father causes criminality and cowardice is obvious:  Why should it cause stupidity?  I conjecture that the close presence of a powerful authority who is smarter and wiser than you pressures you to keep up mentally, exercising your mind, just as the close presence of an athletic peer would pressure you to be more athletic.  Also the efforts to reduce the boy girl gap in maths achievement are likely to have a direct detrimental effect on IQ test scores for both males and females
