The XX Report

    Hi, I read your ideas on how us, males create war, rape, kill, etc… that is a fact for sure. But than, in nature, we are the more expendable sex.
    It is known that, in Africa, wilderbeasts, zebra’s, … ‘present’ themselves to lions, to save the females, 87% of the animals killed are adult males.
    1 testicle produces 10x the amount of testosterone the brain produces, and that’s the main problem with us.
    Advantage : a slightly better ‘spatial awareness’, that’s why we so much want to drive fast, ‘conquer’ the road ahead, or like shooting paintballs or worse.
    A car is a boundary, we suffer from territorial drift, we ‘wear’ our car and its shell becomes our ‘skin’.
    This used to be a suit of armour, back in medieval times.
    We devided the world into countries and our symbolism created money, and all kinds of territorial and other divisions.

    Now there have never been so many men around, procentually, in the world, while we have peace because we can’t protect our women from nukes…

    There is so much more on that topic.
