Politics and Manhood
A study, based on saliva samples taken during Election Night 2008, reveals that testosterone levels of male John McCain supporters dropped dramatically. Male supporters of President Obama’s candidacy had no corresponding boost in testosterone levels, and women’s hormone levels remained steady. Surveys also revealed that McCain supporters felt submissive, controlled, and unhappy. The findings prove that politics can affect males in the same way that physical contests do.
