The Wanker Effect

*warning* The following post has gender generalisations.  These are my observations and I know that not all males are like this.

Testosterone.  It does strange things to seemingly normal men.  Just like women’s hormones send us into a blubbering mess, testosterone can make a man think he is still living in a cave.  Even the most gentle of men, when hit with an attack of the testosterone can make you think what the hell is wrong with you man.

I have named this syndrome, yes it’s a syndrome.  I call it the Wanker Effect or WE for discussion purposes.  The WE doesn’t happen when a man is on their own, just minding their own business.  No. It happens when they are in groups, or with their lady friend.  It is the modern day version of a man beating his chest and howling like Tarzan.  I’m sure Jane used to roll her eyes at him too.

WE happens on sporting fields and in bars.  The man has his posse, he probably thinks that sounds a bit lame but that is exactly what it is.  Women aren’t blind, we can see you all patting him on the back when he acts like an arse.  The wanker effect makes a perfectly articulate male use terms like ‘bro’ and laugh at lame Dad jokes.  If this WE takes place on a sporting field then there appears to be a lot of arse slapping.  This is something I don’t get.  Why the arse? Really, why!

Men, if you feel yourself succumbing to the Wanker Effect, fight it.  Women can see right though it and we don’t think you are tough for doing it.  The phrase childish comes to mind.  Just be the man you, we like that.

Have you been witness to the Wanker Effect?

    Yep, I have most definitely been witness to the WE. What annoys me even more is the IE, the idiot effect, which seems to overcome my husband when he gets together with his brothers. It’s like they regress back in time to teenagers and they cackle like Beavis & Butthead. It’s so frigging annoying!

    LOL OMG yes. In fact I believe I may just be VERY CLOSE to one of the grand poohbahs of its Victorian charter. I don’t understand the chest beating . This is why I want to live in a Kibbutz.

    Ugh! I used to witness it ALL the time in my previous 2 jobs. It reminds me of that Eddie Murphy stand up show, “Raw” and him talking about “Dexter St. Jock…swinging his…” So glad I’m not exposed to that stuff on a daily basis anymore!

      Yep I’m glad that I don’t generally see it on a day to day basis too.
