More About Testosterone

The most profound, and therefore unacknowledged, reason why some feminists are so anti-science is the implications of the new knowledge about the brain and gender for their ability to assign moral blame, a pursuit that lies at the very core of their personalities. Ignoring the biological functions of testosterone, dictated by evolutionary processes, they use the scientific term solely as a swear-word, and accuse anyone who says or does something they don’t approve of as suffering from “testosterone poisoning”. Not only that, but they can even speak of this poisoning as something from which men have chosen to suffer: as the Duchess said to Alice, “they only do it to annoy, because they think it teases”. Perhaps we men should endeavour to discover the hormone that controls tut-tutting behaviour in females, so that we men may complain about its toxic effects.
