Oddly enough this would probably lead to better health outcomes over their lifetimes, if they don't engage in risky masculine behaviour.

Perhaps none of these boys will not be pushing and harassing girls since being rough does not interest them.

I don't mean to be rude here, but does that risky masculine behavior include trying to stop a rape or murder?

The question, I think, is important.

After the Virginia Tech murders, I remember hearing a commentator saying that in her opinion, if this had happened a hundred years ago, the men in those classes would have shielded the women and rushed the gunman in disregard to their own safety.

My reply here, I guess , is off topic. Better replied in the "Twenty Others Stood By and Watched" thread.

If you are going to get that conclusion perhaps you should also get the fewer-boys-will-rape-or-murder-in-the-first-place conclusion too.

Any chance this study was conjured up by those "global warming" fairies to scare people into stop using plastics?

Masculinity in young boys is threatened by far more dangerous things than plastics. Adderall and Ritalin happy teachers, counselors, sociologists, parents and physicians would top the list.

i think that one's willingness to run into bullets fired from a weapon that didn't exist 100 years ago is a really poor measure of masculinity.
