Study: Millennial males weaker than their fathers, “can’t even give someone a proper handshake”

Tiffany GabbayRebel Staff

A new study shows that young men have significantly weaker grip strength than men of previous generations. It's a result that seems to confirm what many of us have suspected all along about Millennial males!

It’s all by design… Every generation is weaker than the one before it both intellectually and physically

The pussified modern male – even at my age I can whup most of them.

It’s all about attitude.
It’s easy to whup someone’s ass who won’t fight back, or won’t fight for what they have, or doesn’t realize or even care about what they have and what they have to lose…and there is no honour in that!

Millennial men are becoming more feminine all the time. This is due to a steady diet of estrogen mimicking agents such as BPA . It in so many food containers and ultimately in the food theses kids eat. This is all by design. The tyrants of the world do not want a civilization with the balls to rise up against them. So if you have a nation of feminine sissy men that are disarmed physically, mentally, emotionally and with no firearms, its a cake walk don’t ya think?

Hey not all of us can have hands like Donald Trump.

pretty sure its just cos nowadays kids are raised in tech so they arent spending as much time doing actual work. that being said, (im 19) I had a job interview recently and they were the limpest people i’d ever met. it was like shaking a dead fish. And i have the problem of: do i match their strength? do i go hard as i can? do it go half as hard as i can? what the hell do you do to someone who puts a dead fish in your hand

Aboriginal culture teaches men to have a soft hand shake.

Never trust a male with a weak handshake and never crush a female’s hand during a handshake. Instead, use her strength as a guide and match it. Never trust someone who has two arms yet for some reason shakes with the left. Be careful of those who avoid eye contact during handshakes.

Words of wisdom once gifted to me and one of the best guides for meeting people, and making that initial judgement of them, that I’ve ever known. Simple, timeless, and true.

Yes, I am very well aware of the super leftist crap that exists in the western world. But the leftists are not responsible for making men have weaker hands.

You are going to have differences between the generations. The current millenial generation is better with things like technology and being more academic. The boomers were more hands on and independent.

@andrew, uh sure buddy, and when things do collapse, y’all who where dependent on technology will be the first to be weeded out. with all this technology replacing men and women, (not only will lazy arse people will sky rocket, but so will diseases and sicknesses that are attributed to being sedentary go on the rise) when the technology fails, earth will be right back to the stone age.

i disagree with technology replacing humans. its pure and simple a bad idea.

it is also sad that people are getting weaker and weaker because of stupid “social warriors”

You know what bothers me about you. Tiffany. It is your voice . That whiny, nasal ,twang that would remind any red blooded American, of why, he ever thought marriage had any positive qualities. I think you do it on purpose.

@anonymous…now that was unfair of me …I suppose if you were born with an eggbeater running in the air ducts it would never occur to you that the noise was unnatural……..:-)

@anonymous….have you ever taken notice of just how far the streatch goes for the feminist journalists and column writers to come up with something spit at men every day? Or the socialists?

Anon it can mean the end of our way of life. A generation of wimps will see us subjugated.
commented 2016-08-19 17:19:53 -0400
It’s incredible how some of you people make a story of hand strength reduction like it is the end of the world.

Steff, obviously they can’t hand out an effective body check either – did this die with Gordie Howe? Pussy-fart board play is why I stopped watching junior hockey.

Here is how powerful grip strength can become……

The eagle kills the wolf by clamping it’s jaws shut and covering it’s nose, thus suffocating the wolf, And yes it is possible for a MAN….not a millenial wimp mind you….to kill in this manner….eagle claw kung-fu….:-)

Now both male and female garuda golden eagles are capable of this….but the Mongolians gave up on millenial capon eagles………:-)

Now before they changed the formula for the bindery glue I could tear an inch and three quarter thick phone book in two. And I can still pinch a loonie hard enough to make the queen’s eyes bulge…..:-)

And each and every time I hear a feminist or her unweanable capon son trash talk actual males and long for our collective gendercide ……it takes all of the restraint I can muster to refrain from applying the eagle squeeze to their trash talking mouths …..apparently it leaves no CSI trace other than the usual cyanuric skin discoloration that comes from asphyxia….but cramming a grape or an olive or other suitable vegan food down their throat after the fact would cover your tracks there……

So always make sure you have witnesses when you test the limits of a real man’s patience…or I got news for you…

What have you got to say to that Andrew?……………-)

Nnaumbua Farrell,

Spot on. I have had business dealings with a company that decided to go fully automated in one of their departments. They fired the 35 to 50 people working in said department and replaced them with a row of arms that bounced around like the force had awoken in them, only problem was, the number of delays in productivity due to glitches, breakdowns and lost productivity cost them about six times more than what they would have paid human labour to do the job. It is a full six years later and the company still has a reputation for being late on deadlines.
That’s the real world, not some theories read a in a book somewhere and then regurgitated with the intent of looking like someone who knows what they are talking about.

They should send all the millennials out to the farms. I grew up with farm boys, and I would hire one any day of the week. They are hard workers, and farming turns boys into men.

Always suspected this. Especially when at work or social, someone will ask me to undo the pressure cap on a jar or otherwise bypassing the much younger men present!

Just like the PM that they support, they are all CUCKs.

This is what happens when you stop keeping score at kids’ sports and give everyone a trophy for just showing up.

What I’ve noticed increasing over the years when I deign to show respect to another person by offering my open hand to them, is not so much a weak hand grip as much as a limp noodle you’re gripping!
When I’m insulted by one of those jelly-fish handshakes my emotional response is immediate mistrust of the person behind the limp wrist…likely unreliable, probably degenerate and basically I want to find the nearest facility with soap and water…
This dearth of manliness in our society – indicative of a pussified hand grip – is inculcated by the chattering classes and their agenda of internal self destruction of our society and that manliness. Of course if you bring this up…you’re the one with the problem…
I’ve mostly worked with men hardened by the extremes of nature, livestock and physical work – not a limp grip among them, but callused hands aren’t the sole indicator of a man – as opposed to a metrosexual whatever – but that grip sure is!

…well the refugee policies or Skynet. Not sure which one will kill us all first.

YA….OK Andy. I am just wondering what color the sky is in your world? Talk about an uneducated statement.

Sigh. Stop trying to be so miserable Andrew. Enjoy a draft while you shoot the breeze with a buddy, eat some meat, attend church. And that nerdy TA you keep looking at from a distance. Why not ask her out on a date, marry her make her happy and have lots of little Stephensons that you can teach to hate conservatives. Well scratch that hate conservatives part but you’ll be much happier.

As for your telling glee at the prospect of throwing us all out of work (lovers of the working man my backside), are you saying that no new job opportunities will emerge as a result of technological advancement? I know there aren’t a lot of carriage repairmen and blacksmiths around to make horse shoes but there are a lot of auto mechanics. Sorry buddy, we’re gonna be bugging you for a little while yet.

Besides, your suicidal European style refugee policies will probably ruin everything anyways.
