By 2021, levels had dropped more than 20%, close to the lowest level in a century. Why?

Because the innate biology that attracts women to men has been corrupted by superficial --------.

I don't care how "progressive" she thinks she is, subconsciously no chick wants to procreate with some soy-boy ------ who "codes" for a living, looks like a girl, puts his preferred pronouns in his LinkedIn Bio, and doesn't know how to change a tire.

That's why so many of them are suddenly "lesbians".

If the Pool of potential partners is overwhelmingly female in its attitudes and skill sets. why not go for the real thing?

Based on what we've learned, I would like to change the headline:

A Decades-long Napoleon Complex Made Pinche Hate Soymilk.

Since I was a kid 60 or so years ago. The USA population has doubled turning the USA country into a hell hole. So bad that honest White workers can't afford to have kids. However, as a percentage of total population, I hear African Americans are doing quite well.

We already know Russians are racist filth. No need to underline the point.

The reasoning postulated by the article is an incorrect interpretation of the "data".

The reason for the decline is selfishness of the average Millennial. They are self-absorbed, having been molded by social media, ------- baby boomer parents, and integrated into the trailing edge of "self-esteem" movement in which kids can do no wrong.

Millennials Are Selfish and Entitled, and Helicopter Parents Are to Blame

That must be it.

Boomers are the whiniest, most entitled, most Karen generation this country has ever seen.

Thank god we are gutting their Social Security and Medicare. Enjoy living on the streets and not being able to afford your meds.

"Millennials Are Selfish"

How is not being able to afford having kids selfish?

How is not being able to afford a house selfish?

"Since 1975, practically all the gains in household income have gone to the top 20% of households."

Any idiot can see who's selfish.

Darn Millennials are too lazy to work four jobs.

It's always something screwing over the next generation... for us, it was global starvation and the bomb.

We managed to spend untold trillions to make everyone fat and lose a lot of wars... to avoid dropping another bomb.

It's the whack-a-mole that life offers.

Racist filth? Russians are smarter than USA civilians. We've kept our race over 99% pure. And we don't get high on basketball of all things where the tallest player wins the game. Fact is that the USA and its so-called free world is deathly afraid of Russian might. We've got hypersonic atomic missiles that deter any USA capitalist aggression. Oh! And keep sending useless tanks to Ukraine so they can be easily slaughtered.

Again, racist..."We've kept our race over 99% pure"...(he screams shrilly).
LOL. And the the rest of your crap about Russian might and hypersonic hoohaa,
is HILARIOUS. Yeah, Russia might (snort), Russia might one day be able to take
the small Ukrainian village of Bakhmut or Soledar in a month or two! They've only been
trying to take these small villages for the last 2-3 months! Pfft! Russian might!
Russian's might have 1000 tanks left after this war is over, they might!

How many hypersonic missles does Russia have? Three?! Three missles?!

Comrade! Go soak your head in a Vodka bath you Communist loser... Your country is
BROKE, it is out of tanks, its airforce is a joke, all of its helicoptors have been
shot down, it is even out of bullets!

Go eat a big cold bowl of Borsht and drink your Vodka and dream of the Glory Days of the Soviet Union, because that is all you have got, memories...

Russians are sooo smart, can't even capture a small village called Bakhmut! Can't
even use tanks right! Can't even keep their countrymen from fleeing their own country! Bwaaaaaahahahahhahahahahahahaa! So, so smart!

Right. And the Uber wealthy would melt and die if they had to work a day at a real job like the rest of the world has to.
