(Post originally from the previous forum. The power of kek, meme magic, etc.) Testosterone is THE male hormone. But T levels are being suppressed by hormones, plastics and (((coincidences))). How can we fight back against society and reclaim our birthright? By mainlining a natural testosterone supplement. Anime. Testosterone is possibly the most important hormone for men. It increases mood, muscle mass, sex drive, fat loss, and energy levels. A healthy level of testosterone will keep your chin up, a satisfied smile on your face... and a party in your pants. Good summary on the benefits of testosterone here: Testosterone Benefits: Why Testosterone is Important | http://www.artofmanliness.com/2013/01/14/testosterone-benefits/ Unfortunately, society is kicking us in the metaphysical ballsack. Between the endocrine disruptors in plastics, leftover birth control hormones in drinking water, proliferation of soybean fillers (estrogen precursor)... and the ritual humiliation of the American male on TV... Our Testosterone levels are under assault. Estrogen is an over the counter cream. Testosterone is a Schedule III Controlled Substance. (((Coincidence?))) Or social programming? Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert and trained hypnotist, explains how watching Hillary Clinton's speech lowered his testosterone: Scott Adams' Blog | http://blog.dilbert.com/post/148050318231/selling-past-the-close "I watched singer Alicia Keys perform her song Superwoman at the convention and experienced a sinking feeling. I’m fairly certain my testosterone levels dropped as I watched, and that’s not even a little bit of an exaggeration. Science says men’s testosterone levels rise when they experience victory, and drop when they experience the opposite. I watched Keys tell the world that women are the answer to our problems. True or not, men were probably not feeling successful and victorious during her act. Let me say this again, so you know I’m not kidding. Based on what I know about the human body, and the way our thoughts regulate our hormones, the Democratic National Convention is probably lowering testosterone levels all over the country. Literally, not figuratively." Every time we watch a commercial where the man is a clueless pansy.... Every time we watch a romantic comedy... Every time we watch a movie where a guy we don't like wins... Our testosterone levels drop. This article explains the science behind Scott Adams' observation: Can Movies Change Your Testosterone Level? - Brendon Marotta | http://www.brendonmarotta.com/1195/can-movies-change-testosterone-level/ "Turns out – Movies Can Raise or Lower Hormone Levels (read the full study here). According to a University of Michigan psychology study, watching a romantic film (The Bridges of Madison County) had no effect on women hormonally, but lowered mens testosterone levels. So watching certain media can lower men’s testosterone levels. The scene from Godfather II where Corleone consolidates power made high-testosterone men even higher testosterone. That same scene actually lowered the testosterone-levels of high-testosterone women and made “people with low-testosterone levels who were most comfortable in submissive roles… downright uncomfortable.”" This is the double whammy. Not only are testosterone levels low, but high-T movies like the Godfather only work on guys that have good testosterone levels already. So we've established the scientific basis behind the assault on testosterone in men. It's not that nerds and "shrimps" are born losers. But if watching the Godfather is too much, too soon, how does a nerd fight back against The Machine? The same article provides the answer: "One of the most established aspects of testosterone is that winning raises your testosterone and losing lowers it. The interesting thing is that it doesn’t even have to be you that loses. Testosterone changes during vicarious experiences of winning and losing. So if your “team” loses, you may experience that loss as if it was your own." "...If you want to increase your testosterone, find ways to experience victory – even if just vicariously. It doesn’t matter if it’s your victory or not. Pick a team, character, or movie where you know the guy you’re rooting for wins. The bigger the adversity they overcome, the bigger the win, and the greater the surge of victory. Good storytelling will actually raise your testosterone. Hollywood movies and mountains of American culture are custom formulated to destroy your testosterone. What genre of storytelling has relatable, nerdy protagonists, WINNING against impossible odds? ANIME. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Dragonball Z. Fullmetal Alchemist. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. One Punch Man. MAGICAL PRINCESS MINKY MOMO. Watching marathons of ridiculous, over-the-top anime is the greatest thing since the squat rack for boosting testosterone. Watching the bumbling idiot "males" in car insurance ads lowers T. Hillary Clinton cheering on "Team Womyn" lowers T. Watching Simon, a underground dirt man, become the hero that defeats the Spiral King... That will grow you a third testicle. In conclusion, Anime is a key weapon in the culture wars. Believe it.
