NYT Sheds Light On Latest Helicopter Parenting Trend: “My Son’s Penis Is Too Short”

by matt baume September 03, 2016


Could this possibly be a real thing, or is it like most “trends,” just something a writer made up when pitching stories? The New York Times would like us to believe that dads are growing increasingly anxious about the size of their babies’ penises, and they found a doctor all too eager to share his experiences.

“Questions about penis size have become more common over the past decade, as my colleagues and I have all seen more overweight children coming in for physical exams,” writes Dr. Perri Klass.

And it’s not confined to infants: apparently parents are voicing concerns about kids around 10 or 11, which seems waaaaay too old for that sort of involvement.

Generally, doctors advise that kids wait before getting any kind of genital surgery — a lot of things can change once they hit puberty. Losing weight isn’t always a bad thing, either. Apparently a big part of responding to these concerns is reassuring the kid and the parents that they’re going to be fine.

And even if their dicks are abnormally small, it’s not the end of the world. As we’ve all learned from experience, there are plenty of other factors that go into choosing a partner. And it’s often the smaller guys who’ve developed the best techniques.

Of course, if there were ever a sure-fire way of making a kid self-conscious about his genitals, it is having his parents drag him to a doctor to talk about them. Parents, good grief, don’t poke around in your pre-teen’s business like that. If he’s worried, he’s old enough to raise questions himself without you making a big production.

Only One Candidate Looked Presidential At The Debate. It Wasn’t The Orange One.

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
