Documentary Looks At Why Men Are Less Manly Than Ever
Apparently, testosterone has gone down 17 percent in the last 14 years among American men, and one member of the decreasingly masculine population has made a documentary, “An Emasculating Truth,” which asks: “What does it mean to be a man?” Oscar travels around the country, interviewing various people and attempting manly activities (lifting weights at Gold’s Gym on the Jersey Shore, going hunting, etc.) in an attempt to figure out where manliness has gone.
It looks pretty interesting, especially the part where GQ style columnist Glenn O’Brien says men will be eliminated in a thousand years and women will become lesbians and run the show, but we’re not sure if it’s a clever viral marketing campaign from Dockers (the documentary’s website says “Presented by Dockers” at the bottom) or if the khaki-pants-maker simply funded this clever inquiry into why men are spending so much on hair products and wearing too-tight jeans these days. “An Emasculating Truth” will be available to view online later this month.
