The inadequate modern male

The inadequate modern male

An Australian anthropologist has said that modern day men have deteriorated considerably from our ancestors in terms of physical capacities.

“If you’re reading this then you – or the male you have bought it for – are the worst man in history.

“No ifs, no buts – the worst man, period… As a class we are in fact the sorriest cohort of masculine homo sapiens to ever walk the planet.”

Those are the opening sentences of the book “Manthropology,” written by Australian anthropologist Peter McAllister, who claims that modern-day men are infinitely inferior to their predecessors in areas like running and jumping.

McAllister says that he has evidence to prove that Australian aboriginals 20,000 years ago could outrun Usain Bolt in modern conditions. And that a Neanderthal woman could have beaten California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in an arm wrestle, says Reuters.

While it is certainly impossible to prove McAllister’s claims, Kipp feels fairly certain that any book that is sub-titled “The Science of the Inadequate Modern Male,” will do well. It just seems to say it all. Right, ladies?
