Asians eat the most soy, and they have the least pronounced male sexual characteristics. Might be a coincidence, but I'd rather not risk it.
You know what else contains large amounts of phytoestrogens? Beer. One of the compounds found in hops is reported to be the most estrogenic phytoestrogen known to man.

If your theory were correct, the title of "least pronounced male sexual characteristics" should go to the Czechs, hands down. And given my own beer consumption, I should be technically female by now.

Furthermore, Asians also tend (best to keep in mind these are tendencies) to have the least pronounced female sexual characteristics. They do not usually have extremely full hips and sizable breasts. It had nothing to do with soy and everything to do with genetics and a trait called neoteny, which is essentially how 'immature' in terms of secondary sexual characteristics an organism appears to be even once it's actually mature. Some studies find it has a very vague correlation with intelligence. Others find it essentially meaningless in humans. I think. Haven't actually looked into it very much.
Furthermore, if a human population were to subsist on an androgen-disrupting diet for a prolonged period of time, natural selection would automatically prefer males with the strongest anti-androgen resistance, resulting in population-wide phytoestrogen insensitivity. Any theory that blames natural compounds such as phytoestrogens for male infertility etc. etc. is absolute bunk, imo.

The guy two doors down from me got passed over for a promotion at work he was pushing for in favor of a (black) external hire, so I was treated today to a 15 minute long rant about how the government is putting "s**cs and j******s" into positions of power by affirmative action to replace white people because "they or someone in their family is dependent on welfare and they're less likely to cause trouble for the government." The idea itself'd be crazy enough to post here on it's own, but it's doubly WTF because this definitely isn't the kind of thing I expected out of this guy.

Bay12 photo thread.  I'm there too, I look just like my old long-hair avatar but with more damned chin bristle.  I hate that specific part of being XY.

During our normal morning maintenance routine, I noticed that particular asshole coworker I've been trying to get fired for months take some stuff from his section of the store and dump it in mine(about halfway across the store). Naturally, the supervisor did nothing about it.

There probably ARE natural compounds that cause infertility. They'd just come from something rarely eaten/never eaten.
I mean, nightshade [sans tomato] is directly poisonous, determining toxicity (much less specific long-term side effects, which takes a [365]magnitude longer) is tough.
But tomatoes, in most senses a nightshade variant, are [mostly, possibly depression-inducing] fine.

It's like the geosphere wasn't made specifically for us~

Tomatoes and nightshade belong to the same family. Tomatoes aren't a subspecies of nightshade or vice-versa.

I mean, we belong to the same family as gorillas. We aren't 300lb masses of muscle that tear down trees to assert dominance. We're 300lb masses of flab that tear down trees to assert that we want more furniture.
(they're related)

And WE're related [gorillas and humans].  We don't have the 300lb, but we sure do accomplish more with less.  It's not even brain size, it's brain dedication to a meta-ness.

Are we...
One level of singularity?

...
I do want to believe we're the progenitors for a future race.  We're like the apes for a new creation that will outstrip us.  Probably without malice, because malice is irrational.

Maybe I'm imagining too far.
