Skip to comments.Why boys are turning into girls (gender-bending chemicals in products)
Posted on 10/26/2009 10:19:39 AM PDT by NYer
Here's something rather rotten from the State of Denmark. Its government yesterday unveiled official research showing that two-year-old children are at risk from a bewildering array of gender-bending chemicals in such everyday items as waterproof clothes, rubber boots, bed linen, food, nappies, sunscreen lotion and moisturising cream.
The 326-page report, published by the environment protection agency, is the latest piece in an increasingly alarming jigsaw. A picture is emerging of ubiquitous chemical contamination driving down sperm counts and feminising male children all over the developed world. And anti-pollution measures and regulations are falling far short of getting to grips with it.
Sperm counts are falling so fast that young men are less fertile than their fathers and produce only a third as much, proportionately, as hamsters. And gender-bending chemicals are increasingly being blamed for the mystery of the "lost boys": babies who should normally be male who have been born as girls instead.
The Danish government set out to find out how much contamination from gender-bending chemicals a two-year-old child was exposed to every day. It concluded that a child could be "at critical risk" from just a few exposures to high levels of the substances, such as from rubber clogs, and imperilled by the amount it absorbed from sources ranging from food to sunscreens.
The results build on earlier studies showing that British children have higher levels of gender-bending chemicals in their blood than their parents or grandparents. Indeed WWF (formerly the World Wildlife Fund), which commissioned the older research, warned that the chemicals were so widespread that "there is very little, if anything, individuals can do to prevent contamination of themselves and their families."

Posssible interest to your ping list.
They also spend MUCH MUCH more time on the internet than their fathers did.
Sperm count is overrated. You only need one.
La la la Lola
There are a lot of studies out there that point to our increased use of plastics that say the same thing. Especially if plastic is heated with a food or beverage in them some release something that mimics a synthetic estrogen. Needless to say I try to not buy much in plastic but now days it is getting harder and harder to do.
ping...(may be of interest).
Government studies? Don’t think I’d give a smelly Obama about any of them. Please, please, read some good scientific literature (backed up by peer reviews and given time) before jumping in the “sky is falling” pool.
I'm so sick of ads where the men are portrayed as idiots and the women as mature, competent adults I could barf.
I have to admit that I have wondered if the hormones injected into beef cattle have anything to do with the increase in male homosexuality.
>>Indeed WWF (formerly the World Wildlife Fund)<<
Grain of salt.
They are also, by peer pressure, forced to use something called guy-liner on their eyelashes. Otherwise, they are instantly labeled "Jocks" I would say that at least 50% of the guys in her school look like they are full blown gays.
The sad part is that we do not live in a "leftist" city. We live in a very conservative area of Michigan.
The left has almost totally succeeded in the gaying of America's youth.
Tea with lemon? Try it in a styrofoam cup and see what happens.
I think this stuff is turning Republicans into RINOs, too.
The Left wants us the be conquered by the Islamists, who really hate Homosexuality.
This is the reality, Obama/Democrats/Commies WANT us to lose/die/be eslaved.
Do not fool yourself, the gays in the military, hate crime law, transgendered garbage is a way to WEAKEN us...if you hurt anyone, it should be prosecuted, the Left wants us to all die (see abortion and eco-wackos).
This is BS. Boys turn into girls because the PC system gelds them.
The natural plant estrogens in soy (tofu, soy flour, soy oil, ...) another reason for the femininization of boys in modern society. The over exposure of soy within processed foods can lead to all sorts of health problems, especially among infants, children and young teens.
No, I think its the salad dressings used by the vegetarians.........
I would think the WWF would approve of this....
I marvel at todays twenty-something men (can’t speak for the US, only my own county); pale, skinny with no hint of muscle at all, zero body hair, and big old heads with feminine features and women’s hairstyles. And apparently these dudes are straight....
I think you’re right. For men my age, it doesn’t have any effet, but for boys who are developing, it is completely emasculating.
been saying the same for ages how men are turning into pansies and girls.
I think it is because we have mothers who raise their boys like little pansies and tell their boys it is alright to play with dolls.
The amount of times I have seen mothers run over to their little Johnny when they tripped and made such a fuss is amazing .
Little Johnny has a scrape and they give him a band aid and make such a fuss.
tell the boy to get up and get on with it instead.
I remember one mother who was shocked that boys have been boxing and fighting since they were 5.
She thinks that kids should never fight.
I’ve suspected the prevalence of the birth control pill as the cause of this.
I mean even the fish are becoming female.
I see it all the time too on the TV or in AD’s
it is the left who raise their kids to be either gender.
Boys play with Barbies and wear make up .
I just hope that by the time my daughter gets older and starts dating there are men left for her instead of a pansy cry baby drama queen.
This explains the increase in the number of liberal men in the U.S.
Creepy stuff. I'm not seeing much of that in our corner of suburban Philadelphia. Some dyed hair, but often that's just the swim team doing their bit to build team spirit before their big winter meets. Their hair is already bleached and dry from the chlorine, so they finish the bleach job before shaving it all off a few weeks later. Pretty funny actually.
I think if my sons encountered pressure to dress and make up as you've described, they'd ignore it. Perhaps it's our demographic makeup. We have a high percentage of Jewish students and children of Chinese and Korean immigrants. These tend to be a pretty studious lot and not inclined to go off the deep end with these sorts of trends.
This is just anecdotal but I also notice, when listening to TV or talk radio call-in shows, that a lot of males who claim they’re in their 20s or 30s, have moderately high feminized voices.
I've also read comments from quite a few people about how the sound of men's voices has changed. They think more men are speaking with higher-pitched voices and a nasal tone. I am trying to pay more attention to it and haven't made up my mind yet. I definitely see more metrosexual types, many of whom spend more time on grooming and wardrobe than the average woman. Can't say I like that trend. I'm glad my husband and sons aren't like that - cleanliness is good, but things can definitely be taken too far. (Besides, I don't want them monopolizing the bathrooms . . . ).
An old Veterinarian years ago told me not to buy into the soy protein good as animal protein myth for my show dogs or my children.Soy is full Phytoestrogens, sometimes called “dietary estrogens”, and cause estrogenic effects.
Our food supply is full of it.
This is true, people. There are so many things in our environment that affect the woman’s womb environment and can change her male fetus’s orientation and self-gender-association.
This happens to all the other animals and it is happening with our kids.
These poor kids need our love and support. They are not doing anything against G-d and tradition. They are little children born with a disability or difference just like other disabilities. PLEASE don’t condemn these little kids with mixed up gender feelings or orientations. It’s not their fault. They were born like this or maybe in infancy their environment shaped them like this.
Even if you hate the gay agenda, please have as much sympathy and love available to kids with gender issues just like you would for kids with cleft palate or diabetes.
Don’t blame their parents either. No one yet knows exactly how to prevent these chemicals from entering the mother’s body. Could be she was exposed to them over her whole life.
I think it’s heartless to mock and have disdain for innocent children who cannot help how they feel.
Well that makes no sense unless they are claiming that the chemicals are not only messing with boys' hormones, but actually TURNING BOY BABIES INTO GIRL BABIES in utero.
I think this is probably true, although the article is pretty useless since it doesn’t say what is at fault.
Birth control pills going into the sewers, soy, and no doubt other chemicals and plastics are probably responsible, although who knows in what proportions? And some of the chemicals used on food animals are probably responsible too.
One solution is to eat organic, although that can be very expensive unless you are in the right neighborhood. Another may be to avoid plastics.
The real problem is that the government has proven to be absolutely useless at discovering these problems or controlling them. The whole purpose of the FDA these days seems to be to cover up for poisoned Chinese products, and the others are equally useless. Not everyone working for them is guilty, by any means, but they have to follow routine procedures. For instance, Clinton saw to it that his pal Tyson’s packing plants were never properly inspected—one good reason among many not to buy Tyson products.
Another trouble is that many of the regulators are “green,” and you never know whether they might not secretly be sympathetic to the idea of reducing birth rates by feminizing men. Plus, being a macho guy is politically incorrect.
It would be good to get some really reliable reports on the dangers, and how to avoid them.
I’m sure you’re right, but don’t you hate the state of journalism these days, where you end up with more questions than answers?
Too true. However, we can take a few precautions from what little we know. For starters, don't microwave food in plastic containers. It's easy enough to transfer things into casserole dishes or onto glass or ceramic plates for heating. I've done it for years because of intermittent reports of this type. It's also not hard to reduce consumption of soy products, unless you really like soy milk or tofu. I read labels carefully anyway because we steer clear of high-fructose corn syrup. By cooking mostly from scratch we avoid both the syrup and large concentrations of soy protein. We never used soy formula or soy milk, and nobody likes tofu. I will admit to using bottled water sometimes because we have nasty tasting well water. I try to keep the bottles from getting too warm though, since it releases more plasticizers into the water. When my boys go camping, they take water bottles. We've recently purchased some aluminum bottles so they can switch away from the older nalgene bottles. Especially when the boys were little, we bought milk from the farm which was unpasteurized and free of added antibiotics and hormones.
I'm sure we're still being exposed to things we're unaware of, but there are steps we can take even with incomplete knowledge. By sticking with basic foods, home cooking, and by avoiding some of the plastics in contact with food (especially hot ones), we can likely reduce risk and probably eat more healthy foods in the process.
I have become extremely suspicious of all soy based products for this very reason. I have been vocalizing my theory to new mothers who use soy based formulas, especially for their male children about the effects of the phytoestrogens on their masculinity. They might think I’m a whack job, but that’s my theory and I’m sticking to it!!!
when I see a well dressed educated white male who is young and acts manly I just want to go congratulate him and challenge him to arm wrestling or something...
how in the hell did this happen?
note....this is part of the same culture that has now produced the woman as premier force in the family and also kids who are overindulged and no limits and allowed to run all over the parents and other adults
the only place I've seen more exceptions than not to this is the Cotton South...I'm sure there are others.
this bodes poorly for our future
how often do I see the man carrying the papoose and the diaper bag while the woman charges ahead chin out
or the guy in the back seat with baby (future tyrant) while mom drives the hybrid
skinny pants and martin short hairstyle
the most silly assed women beaten lads maybe the world has ever known...no wonder black guys think we are chumps...
hell, we are...lol
I had a young guy get mad and challenge me not long ago...hell...I almost cried...I hugged and told how great to see a meterosexual nut up to a big old bear like me...made my day
For every Uriah Faber there are 1000s of girly men.
who woulda ever thought old former long haired Duane Allman looking guys like me would one day seem...so masculine..lol...to my dad's generation we were girls
Bro did not get much of the expected natural genetic help...
I wonder how much the higher voices of modern men are due to the fact that modern men don’t smoke three packs a day and don’t have 3 martini lunches...thinking of the grown up men in church when I was a kid (a clean living, southern baptist style church), there were many with higher voices.
I think our culture definitely feminizes men. But the USA was a matriarchy a long long time ago. Probably started with the temperance movement. Or check out Philip Wylie’s “Generation of Vipers,” from the early 1940s. Or the mother and father in “Rebel Without A Cause”. Yeah, we’re whipped - but there’s nothing new about it!
You believe that a normal human diet consisting of cereals, fruits, and vegetables is causing the feminization of boys? Phytoestrogens are found in hundreds of plants (fruits, cereals, tubers and vegetables) that you consume every day. How can they be bad for you when consumed from soy but not from their many of other sources?
My friend, you have voiced all of my thoughts, as well. The only possible explanation I can add comes from an Italian immigrant friend. Back in the early 70’s, watching the growing feminist movement, he said that historically, this had all happened before. He had studied ancient cultures at university and cited Rome, Greece, et al. His next comment came as a surprise (remember, this was the early 70’s). He explained that throughout history, each time women rose to power they were immediately followed by a rise in the homosexual movement. His final comment was so ludicrous (for its time) that I began laughing. “Laugh all you want, he said, but you will live to see the collapse of the US as a super power.” I’m not laughing anymore.
