Size Matters? Penis Dissatisfaction and Gun Ownership in America – PubMed (nih.gov)

In this study, we formally examine the association between penis size dissatisfaction and gun ownership in America. The primary hypothesis, derived from the psychosexual theory of gun ownership, asserts that men who are more dissatisfied with the size of their penises will be more likely to personally own guns. To test this hypothesis, we used data collected from the 2023 Masculinity, Sexual Health, and Politics (MSHAP) survey, a national probability sample of 1,840 men, and regression analyses to model personal gun ownership as a function of penis size dissatisfaction, experiences with penis enlargement, social desirability, masculinity, body mass, mental health, and a range of sociodemographic characteristics. We find that men who are more dissatisfied with the size of their penises are less likely to personally own guns across outcomes, including any gun ownership, military-style rifle ownership, and total number of guns owned. The inverse association between penis size dissatisfaction and gun ownership is linear; however, the association is weakest among men ages 60 and older. With these findings in mind, we failed to observe any differences in personal gun ownership between men who have and have not attempted penis enlargement. To our knowledge, this is the first study to formally examine the association between penis size and personal gun ownership in America. Our findings fail to support the psychosexual theory of gun ownership. Alternative theories are posited for the apparent inverse association between penis size dissatisfaction and personal gun ownership, including higher levels of testosterone and constructionist explanations.

Also, from the paper, this additional bit of irony:

Funding: The author(s) disclosed receipt of the following financial support for the research, authorship, and/or publication of this article: The data collection for this study was supported by funding from Change The Ref, an organization that “uses urban art and nonviolent creative confrontation to expose the disastrous effects of the mass shooting pandemic.” Although Change The Ref holds a clear political stance with respect to the role of guns in society, this organization played no part in the planning or implementation of the study.

Yes, an anti-gun organization paid for this study.

And a final bit of irony is that there is more than one way to interpret the results of this study which I have not found mentioned anywhere. It could be that the gun owning men satisfied with their penis size are happy because they have successfully compensated for their small penis with gun ownership.

I was referred to this study by numerous people. Here are the ones I can recall. If someone else also brought it to my attention and I failed to give them credit, I apologize.

A Thin Veneer of Respectability

I’m sorry you feel you need an AR-15 to compensate for your tiny tadger. That’s rough.

It’s not only another Markley’s Law Monday, it is another science denier!

I was referred to this by In Chains @InChainsInJail. Zheng then told me not to procreate. I suspect what she really meant was that she wants me dead, but even if she was just passing judgement on my fitness for parenthood, that she thinks she should be able to make a decision like that for others is very telling. Anti-gun people are tyrants with, at most, a thin veneer of respectability.

Small Imagination and Narrow Mind

They must have an exceptionally small imagination and narrow mind to believe those are the only two options to own and carry a gun. Especially, since one of the people in the picture is a woman.

How Would They Know?

You should also note that Toodaloo deleted their post about gun owners.

How does this person think they know that? From personal experience with a large enough sample size?

Of course, do not expect anti-gun person to use data and/or rational thought to determine truth from falsity. Peterson Syndrome is a real thing. These people tend to not have a means of determining truth from falsity. They have beliefs based on nothing but faith. And the anti-gun people who are rational and use data to determine how to know things are consummate liars. It is part of their culture.

Or, most likely, it was just a childish insult when they couldn’t defend their beliefs.

An Itch?

Perhaps a penis enlargement would scratch the same consumerist itch

She thinks people by guns because they have an itch?

I wonder what itch she has which leads her to claim “America has enough guns already.” I’m thinking perhaps some sort of fungal infection.

Self-Own Projection

Quote of the Day

You know that the .50 BMG is legal to purchase and own everywhere in the US except California, as long as it was made/imported before May 18th 1986, right?

And yes, if it helps you feel like a man, you can stroke your little carbine cocks all over your property anytime you want.

Probably the most interesting thing to me in this thread is their projection. This is the same person:

They have a spreadsheet of canned responses. It’s all the same vitriol and name calling every time. They can’t even be original.

Disappointing.

Wow! Just WOW!

The Last Laugh

Quote of the Day

Yeah, a bunch of incels stroking their guns. You must be so proud to be part of the circle jerk. Congrats.

We’ll have the last laugh watching you chuds cry when they’re banned.

She is triggered by children being shot to death in school but she apparently doesn’t know or accept the most effective means of defending against those sort of events.

People who resort to demonstrating Markley’s Law are people with mental problems. They cannot be reasoned with.

Who is a coward? I say it is the person who throws insults but doesn’t have the courage to be first in the stack to break into the houses of the millions of U.S. gun owners and take those big bad guns and save all those children being murdered in school shootings.

Moron? Or Graduate Degree?

Quote of the Day

There are some notions so idiotic that, to believe them, much less evangelize them, one must either be a moron or have a graduate degree.

Why not both?

See also George Owell:

One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.

And Betrand Russell:

This is one of those views which are so absurd that only very learned men could possibly adopt them.

Bullshit. It’s better trigger discipline if he leaves his penile substitute at home rather than walk down the street toward a bus stop, fondling it as he goes along.

You’re Just a Big Baby Gun Wacko With a Small Dick

Quote of the Day

You want to talk about a single person to avoid the reality that no one has taken away your 2nd amendment rights. No one has taken away your guns. No one is trying to take away your guns. You’re just a big baby gun whacko with a small dick.

I don’t know what color the sky is in their universe but we can be certain our political reality does not match their delusions and/or lies of the political landscape.

Check out No one wants to take your guns for a quick and easy refutation of their primary assertion.

They Should Do Better Checking

Quote of the Day

Last time I checked words didn’t kill people. I’m sorry that your manhood is threatened unless you have a firearm on your hip but with all these children needlessly dying something has to change.

This is deliberately deceptive framing. Technically they are correct about words. Just like guns, words don’t kill people kill people. But that does not mean words/ideas are not dangerous.

As pointed out by Stalin, words/ideas are more dangerous than guns:

Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don’t let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?

See also Crazy talk.

Chicagoooose should do better checking. But if they did, and they took their research to heart, they wouldn’t be against private gun ownership unless they were a genocidally inclined tyrant.

This was in response to someone sharing a picture of their AR-15 chambered in 300 blk.

It is an actual “book” available on Amazon. Of course it has blank pages for content:

Living with a Micro Penis: Overcoming the Stigma of Having a Small Penis is the perfect gift for your friend with small manhood. Learn to overcome the stigma of having a wee willy with this 100-page, blank lined journal that makes a hilariously perfect gag gift for everyone – Mom, Dad, friends, and family, male or female. If you want to make someone laugh then this is the ideal present.

Zero content, because after the last gasp insult they are completely out of responses.

Simple Insult From a Simple Mind

Quote of the Day

I’m constantly asking these people: a) how often are you being attacked in your home? b) how many people attack you at once? A shotgun and / or pistol will defend your home & family. Hunting? WTAF are you hunting? They want this gun because they have a small . It’s that simple.

Simple insults for a simple view of the world. Or, the old adage—simple things for simple minds.

But what can you expect from an anti-gun person? They have no concept of rights beyond the reach of the collective, no awareness of the impracticability of what they advocate, and no understanding of the immorality of their actions. Or, they are just flat out evil.
