Vegetarians Emasculate, Inadequate, Unfruitful Paper Tigers: New Study

A new study shows women trying to conceive should consider not consuming soya for the few days around ovulation.

According to a UK researcher, a study shows a compound found in soya causes human sperm in a dish to “pop their caps” prematurely, rendering them useless.

Another team has also found that when genistein (a compound found in leguminous plants such as soya) is injected into male rats three times a week, it reduces the size of the litters they father, from about 11 pups at most to five.

Even low doses had an effect, they say. That would seem to hint that men should worry about eating soya when trying to father children.

I always thought those vegans looked like wimpy, effete, blank shooting duds (readers of this blog excluded, of course)...

As the article said, if this finding means anything you'd expect to find an actual relationship between fertility and soy consumption.

So, they might want to do that study, but as they hinted at, this doesn't initially appear to be the case.

But you're really only interested in making a half-assed connection between being a vegan and being effete and impotent.

See, scientific fact confirms sterotype. Get it? Huuh? Come on, fact-sterotype! Wakka wakka wakka.

I assume Josh is vegan or vegetarian. I guess things are only funny if they're not making fun of you. C'mon, lighten up buddy!!

Naw, Josh is OK. At least he gets it (he just doesn't like it!) most lefties think this blog is the 6 o'clock news...
Although I have seen the MSM present plenty of stories like this one...outlandish, attention grabbing slanted headline, selective reporting of the actual story, opinion placed into the story, etc.
Josh, welcome to my world...

Thanks dude.

I find it somewhat amusing that many of your right-wing readers don't really understand that you're trying to be subversive either. Oh well.

Truth in journalism is a noble goal. On that we can agree. I just wouldn't agree that the media is currently slanted to the left.

And for the record Mr. Anonymous, I'm not vegan or vegetarian, not that it matters. So what if I was?
