Quick, check in your pants, gentlemen! Is your penis shorter? Around 10 percent shorter? According to Rush Limbaugh, you can blame “feminazis” for that, and the problem is only going to get worse.
The conservative radio shock-jock cited an Italian study, which apparently found that a man’s average penis size is now 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago. According to the study, this shocking epidemic can be blamed on weight gain around the waist, smoking, stress, and environmental factors.
But the study left out one cause that Limbaugh was quick to add: Feminazis.
“Feminazis,” Limbaugh’s affectionate term for feminists, are responsible for your ever-shrinking hog. “I think it’s feminism,” Rush declared. “If it’s tied to the last 50 years — the average size of [a male’s] member is 10 percent smaller than 50 years — it has to be the feminazis, the chickification and everything else.”
“Give ‘em time and they’ll blame Bush. But air pollution vs. feminazis? Ha!” he scoffed.
Limbaugh has had strange remarks regarding penises before as well. In 2009, he responded thus to “Off That,” a Jay-Z song in which the rapper name-checks the radio host and another famous pundit, Bill O’Reilly:
“I would remind the rapper Jay-Z, Mr. Z, it is President Obama that wants to mandate circumcision. We had that yesterday, and that means if anybody – if we need to save our penises from anybody, it’s Obama. I did not know I was on anybody’s balls either. I’m happy to know that they think I am though. But I didn’t – I didn’t actually know that I was,” he said at the time.
We at IQ have submitted a request to various male health and research organizations to determine the effect of “traditional marriage” on the size of the penis. None have immediately responded.
