Sorry I know some of the posts have been kinda weird lately but I only post interesting things I see and they happen to be pretty strange lately. This post is no different…
Did you know that 3 out of every 4 Beliebers are either under 17 or over 40 years old? Yah we keep joking about the cougars who like JB but what if I told you that the cougars (old women) make up 21% of all JB fans? The most likely reason for this is because these 40+ year old woman were Bieberized by their daughters who got them into JB.
Well a new report says that the reason why young and old females are the biggest Justin Bieber fans is because they have low estrogen (female hormones). HUH?
According to a doctor named Dr. Tony Little:
It’s no coincidence that females two to three generations apart are falling for the same teen music sensation. Like most cases of puppy love, hormones are to blame.
The Estrogen Effect
Justin Bieber’s boyish looks and high-pitched vocals have charmed millions of women at opposite ends of the age spectrum. What do they have in common? Low estrogen.
“Before puberty, women prefer men with more feminine faces and higher voices,” says Tony Little, Ph.D., Royal Society Research Fellow in Psychology at the University of Sterling. The same holds true after menopause. “Post-menopausal women almost revert back to a pre-puberty level of preference for more feminine men.”
In a 2010 study demonstrating this effect, Little and colleagues showed two images of a male face, altered to look masculinized or feminized, to women of different ages. Feminine faces appealed to post-menopausal women and girls in the early stages of puberty, while women in their most fertile years preferred more masculine men.
Little believes that estrogen may fuel the changes. “Estrogen kicks in quite strongly at puberty,” he says. “It encourages women to want to mate with genetically high-quality [read: masculine] men.” As estrogen dwindles post-menopause, so does the affinity for hunky, masculine men.
Well I completely disagree. From the reactions I’ve seen from my sexy posts, it’s obvious that the Beliebers (at least that ones that come to JBShrine) have raging hormones. :p
