    Default Testosterone Administration Induces A Red Shift in Democrats

    Increased testosterone levels can cause Democrats to become more conservative in their political affiliation, a recent experiment analyzing voters in U.S. elections found.

    (Not surprised.)

    The study – Testosterone Administration Induces A Red Shift in Democrats – was published on November 14th, 2021 by Professor Paul Zak, the Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University.

    Also this effect was associated with improved mood.

    Found the news at:

    Study is at:

    I was expecting The Babylon Bee, and would have enjoyed it. Enjoying it more with it legit, but we have again proven that satire is impossible in this world.

    The idea seems logically sound, but you can't draw much statistical significance from a study of 136 subjects.

    This increases my concern, though, that the socialists in Congress might decide to crack down even more on testosterone. I don't find it difficult to imagine a propaganda war being waged against testosterone, painting it as the new Oxycodone and following the same pattern--prosecuting both the manufacturers and the doctors who prescribe it. Envision Chuck Schumer railing about the evils of "Assault Hormones" and Ben Affleck doing a remake of his old public service announcement about the dangers of steroids. If they think they'll lose voters due to testosterone, they will absolutely go after testosterone.

    My guess is they were also possessed by a sudden uncontrollable urge to buy firearms, trade in their Prius for a muscle car, burn their PETA and Greenpeace t-shirts, do kettlebell swings, eat a medium grilled steak, drink bourbon, and give chase to the opposite sex.

    Someone's cracking down. What used to be available as a 90 day fill on my TRT is now limited to 30. So far, no questions about the doc's justification, but who knows what the future holds.

    I have seen that on other meds. I think its due to limited supply and the fact that most meds are made in china.

    Its worth noting that antifa and their ilk also have some very commited members that are very fit and not suffering from low T.
