This week’s peer-reviewed portrayal of fragile masculinity comes to you from the journal Science Advances, which recently published a depressing new study about online dating. Researchers looked at nearly 200,000 heterosexual users and found that while men’s sexual desirability peaks at age 50, women hit their prime at 18. And then it’s all downhill from there apparently. Can I just remind you that 18-year-olds are teenagers, and so this study is basically saying that straight men don’t find women attractive; they like girls.
While these studies may focus on sexual relations, they’re yet another reminder that we’re facing a crisis of masculinity that is reverberating across every aspect of our society. The far right is dominated by men, many of whom seem to be searching for a sense of identity. For feminism to get anywhere we must seriously address how we think about masculinity.Arwa Mahdawi, “Men’s fixation on young women is another sign of masculinity in crisis” at The Guardian
So just think, guy readers: Following what evolutionary psychology expects you to do is a sign of “masculinity in crisis.” Whatever, just stay outta the way of that train.

Darwinists are safe from progressives as long as all they do is blather nonsense like why men pay on the first date. But now, you really want to get in the way of their racket? Look, they are taking dead aim at math, never mind Kutschera’s kind of stuff.
