    Default What's up with the prevalence of "bitch tits"?

    I went to a show out the Gorge this weekend. For the first time in ten years or so it was actually warm enough and early enough in the day that most of the young men were shirtless. I couldn't help but notice the large number of young men with "gyno" (gynecomastia). I don't remember seeing this many busty young males a decade ago (roughly the last time I would have noticed this sort of thing). What's going on here? Is it the high levels of hormones in our food? Something else?

    I wasn't aware they were called bitch tits. I always referred to them as moobs.

    I think it has a lot to do with the lack of proper diet and exercise

    God I'm a freak.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    Me neither, but I like it

    I thought, aside from the fitness and diet level which plays a part too, that it was related to the hormones circulating in our food and water also?

    Actually, you're not. You're probably more typical than you think, if what I've observed of other people is any indication.

    I thought man boobs were just when guys were seriously fat and bitch tits is gym slang for someone who has gynecomastia from roid use.

    They say there are more estrogens in the diet now but you wouldn't think it would be enough to cause a park full of man boobies.

    This was definitely gyno. Strange, strange stuff. Relatively normal sized young men with breast tissue. Two cases, er guys, actually were probably smaller than me (under 150 lbs, 5'11") with very pronounced small breasts. I haven't ever seen anything like this outside of the gym. That's why I was wondering if something is going on with hormone levels.

    Perhaps I just haven't been paying attention and they've been boobletted all along. I almost took a picture of one fella who had a pair of nipples that could've put an eye out but I couldn't think of an inconspicuous way to do it.

    Wow, I've never noticed guys with that but then I suppose I'm more on the lookout for the female variety.

    Could be hormone levels, aren't kids supposed to be entering puberty earlier these days or something, especially girls? Wouldn't surprise me with the amount of crap in some food.

    Fat due to bad dieting.
