Ugh! But with the rampant obesity of America plus reality shows about making over personal appearance, them putting on TV commercials touting some poor fatty who bemoans his "man breasts"...
.... are there any people reading here who have had mastectomy?
That is...males are not much more than hormonally modified women.
Genesis, written my mere males, perverts God's creation.
Logic says that EVE was here first. She (god) saw that woman was good, but lonely without a pet to nurture.
Hence SHE created 'man' for Eve.
The man's name might better have been derived from "Eve", for in men we find a androgen induced proclivity to word testosterone-ish evils.
Men have nipples. What for? Little milk of kindness flows from these. Useless as **** on a bull. Whoa! Bulls have nipples, too!
All this is old joshing often heard.
But the set-up is to ask: Do any men here have unwanted breast tissue?
Most certainly YES. Most certainly too, not a one would DARE admit this in public.
Enter netsky- the man who has no dignity. Nothing shames him but undefeatable bullies' bull.
I am lean, have always been lean and muscular in a lean sort of way. One handed pull ups used to be my gym-show-off trick no other could duplicate even for a hundred dollar bill and unlimited time frame by which to match my pull up strenght.
THERE- that's male testosterone talking! The bull talking.
Yet i was a boy at puberty and something not-rare happened when i got that dose of testo-wrest-o at that vulnerable phase. There is estrogen present in males, too. Elevated testosterone can make an opposite reaction; something in the metabolism can cause an estrogen reflex.
In my common sort of case-the bounce back gave me a pair of fat nipples, like a small grape under the nipples.
What shame and it was a depressing horror. When eighteen i had to do something about the shame of mini-man breasts. I showed my dad, reluctantly- he NEVER saw me without a shirt on from age 15, for three years longer. Now he saw why.
My dad was ex Navy medical corps. "Oh, those are nothing, just lipomas".
I was going into service so the bumps had to be removed. That was the only reason i even dared tell my dad.
Whew. Just lipomas. The surgeon explained better: this is genuine breast tissue. We all have it. You shall undergo a bilateral mastectomy, scraping out all the breast tissue and sparing the nipples for appearance sake.
Which he did. I have flat nipples now and no worry of every catching breast cancer. BREAST CANCER in men? Very rare, but it does happen. Especially to men with "man breasts".
An obese man or an elderly man very often develops hormonally triggered growth of breast tissue to full adn fulsome *****. I was no booby boy, just grape sized.
It sure was a shame to a lad, though. The female nurse prepping me for surgury soothed me saying "it is so common! Why just last week we had a Miami Dolphin player for this very same surgury, very same presentment. See, it is no strike against your masculinity.
What she could not say, but i gathered later on, was that the football player was probably a user of synthetic testosterone. "***** ****" is the common side effect, called as such in any gym where men like that wear VERY LOOSE fitting T shirts.
Whew! What a de-dignification of myself again. It did not hurt, either. No hurt like living through the most tender years of manhhood carrying a shame, a humility, given me by Providence.
Any others here? GRINNNNNNNN. NOT Gonna Happen!
Saw a related story on the new this evening and checked into it. It seems estrogens and estrogen "mimikers" from various chemical pollutants seem to be causing growth of more female tissue in some fish. Yea, yah....Bush's fault. I don't post links much but thought this was interesting.
