It remains a sad, bigoted trope that men dissatisfied with the size or performance ability (not one in the same) of their sex organs tend to own guns to compensate. We know that’s BS. After all, why would any guy buy or carry a snubnosed revolver if he was compensating for short-man syndrome? A new study debunks that long-held myth – primarily held by those who don’t understand or appreciate the proven benefits of firearm ownership.

What makes the study’s results even more delicious has to do with the anti-gun snowflakes who funded it. “Change the Ref” paid for the study. Change the Ref reportedly “uses urban art and nonviolent creative confrontation to expose the disastrous effects of the mass shooting pandemic.”

If you visit their website (we did so you don’t have to), here’s how they describe themselves:

and works to reduce the influence of the NRA and gun manufacturers through strategic interventions and by using art as a form of communication.

Ummm, ok. So, you have a study paid for by people who dislike gun ownership and presumably gun owners as well trying to tie bigoted old tropes to reality. Just in time for Pride Month.

The academics conducting the study found evidence that not only failed to support their small-minded stereotypes, but just the opposite. Men happy and satisfied with their “equipment” tend to like to own guns. And men unhappy or dissatisfied with their twig tend not to own guns.

From the NY Post:

There’s a good reason to ask whether or not it’s a gun in their pocket.

The long-held myth that men who own guns are … err, overcompensating for something … has been debunked by scientists in a new study published in the American Journal of Men’s Health.

Rather, researchers at the University of Texas at San Antonio found that men quite satisfied with certain physical assets are most likely to have guns.

The correlation between the male sexual psyche and behaviors like buying big houses, driving loud cars and dating young women is a common comedic trope in popular culture as well a topic of legitimate sociological speculation, including the suggestion that men who are preoccupied with guns are also insecure about their small penis.

“Contrary to popular beliefs, our current study shows that men who are more satisfied with the size of their penises are more likely to personally own guns,” said study author Terrence D. Hill, a professor at UTSA.

In a previous study, UTSA researchers found no relationship between gun ownership and sexual dysfunction. Still, Hill’s team aimed to identify a direct link between penis size and guns for the latest findings.

How big was the difference between happy and dissatisfied?

In contrast to popular belief, researchers found that the more dissatisfied men were with their penises, the less likely they were to own a gun — subtracting 11% probability of gun-toting with each step down in penis size satisfaction.

The chances of owning a military-style rifle were even lower — 20% — with each increased unit of penis size dissatisfaction.

So ladies, if you needed another reason to seek out good men who can act as family leaders and protectors of their loved ones including wives, children and homes with something more than a stern word and a sharp stick, see this study in the American Journal of Men’s Health.  Then go seek out men who appreciate the many proven benefits of firearm ownership.

  1. It was a Psychological Information Operations, and it was funded and orchestrated by Gun Control, Inc.

  2. Looks like this all started thanks to an article by our own Dan Zimmerman:

    “In 2017, The Truth About Guns blog declared that a “Study Confirms Gun Owners Have Smaller Penises” (Zimmerman, 2017). This satirical “study” reported that states with a higher percentage of gun ownership (Kalesan et al., 2016) tended to exhibit lower rates of online purchases of larger-sized condoms (Roy, 2013). In this article, we formally test, for the first time, whether men who are more dissatisfied with the size of their penises are in fact more likely to personally own guns.”

    Change the Ref fell for the satire, but really should have known better than pose the question to a bunch of good old boy scientists in Texas!

  3. Where is Change the Ref getting their money? Those people are not showing up without compensation.

    • It’s not the length or diameter that counts, it is what you can do with it that counts to the ladies.
      And the relationship between pecker size and number of guns is pure deee B. S.

      • It is said the famous, or infamous, Casanova was “undersized”. When asked for his secret he said “make sure she enjoys it too”.

      • “Size” not only doesn’t matter, it isn’t even needed………..why do you think there are so many lesbians. Female orgasm is primarily triggered by stimulation of the clitoris.

  4. So I bet the cowboy at the rodeo I could make that Mule laugh.
    I did.
    Then I bet the Cowboy I could make the Mule cry.
    I did.
    The cowboy said how did you do that.
    I said told the Mule I got a pistul barrel longer then yours.
    Then I showed him.

  5. It takes a manly self-confidence to handle something with the potential to kill you.

    Incidentally, rates of manliness really started to go down after we started using safety razors.

  6. This won’t stop them from pushing the small dick thing. They never let objective reality get in the way of a favored narrative. It is satisfying that they payed for the data though.

  7. This certainly explains why Yamhill County Judge Ladd Wiles was so easily prejudiced against me. He gave my marijuana bootlegging tenant a free pass for shooting at my son with a politically correct, 12 gauge shotgun. Wiles was obviously swayed by our tenants’ attorney prancing around the courtroom with a .50 BMG cartridge for my Barrett rifle. The attorney argued that our tenant had good reason to shoot at my son simply because I own a politically incorrect rifle. Just FYI, a 12 gauge shotgun is .73 caliber. A slug for a 12 gauge shotgun has about double the wounding capacity as a bullet from a .50 BMG rifle.

    Of course Judge Wiles was all the more vulnerable to such manipulation because the eviction trial was concurrent with the proceedings by the Oregon Bar Association against his famously philandering, perjuring, drug addicted wife, Amanda S Marshall. Ms Marshall had committed perjury about her prolonged and spectacularly flagrant affair with a subordinate at the US Attorney’s office. She had even cited the Bill Clinton defense that it really wasn’t adultery because she had merely performed fe77atio on him. This proceeding had no doubt inflamed Judge anxieties about his anatomical short comings.

    Perhaps Judge brain had been ravaged by the case of syphilis that his wife had given him. Alternatively; he might have been distracted by the spready drip, drip drip of gonorrhea.

    It has also been suggested that Judge Wiles was prejudiced against me because he thought I resembled the evil bastard who’d impregnated his wife. Honest. It wasn’t me. I didn’t even inseminate her.

    • I never owned a gat until 2011. I was quite lucky with the ladies way before I became a gat owner. At 70 I don’t need Viagra. Guy’s who brag about their junk are idiots. So are dudes who advertise all the gunz they got🙄

  8. So I get moderated for essentially nothing. 11 years counts for nothing at the “new” TTAG. I’ll only comment on fakebook.

    • I’ve been moderated and even black-holed. The former is when a post takes hours to appear, and usually from po.lit.itcal words. If the post is negative to the left side, the more likely W0rd.Press will auto-moderate.

      The latter is when a post just disappeared, never happened or existed. Content to have the latter is a bit harder to pick.

    • We need another Pro-2A website as TTAG commenting moderation has become what fills Dementia Joe’s diaper.

  9. So the AJMH study says the truth is opposite of the disarmament industry’s claims. Wonder what they would think about the collection of hardware I have in the rack and safe.
    Funny how a couple of my daughters like their military style rifles and large caliber handguns. And unless something new has been added since I changed diapers, they don’t have male body parts. Penis envy perhaps?

  10. I have a small penis and I own large guns but I am satisfied with my penial performance so I don’t feel the need to compensate for it with guns. where would that put me in this study?

  11. Well I can say on a personal level I’m absolutely compensating for a small penis Big V8 cars, lots of guns, lots of professional tools….damn straight I’m compensating!

  12. At 60yrs old, 6’3″ 200lbs of lean muscle with normal “T-rone” levels (actually “very good” according to the doc) and someone who doesn’t require that “blue stuff” to perform I’ve been tempted to send an image of my eight inch (8″) barrel to women who post that crap but am reluctant to do so for fear of being deluged with offers.

    • I’m 70 and getting stronger, it used to take two hands to hold the morning wood down to not piss all over the floor.

      • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 That’s such a great joke on a couple of levels, all done Master Marsupial.

  13. That sign is actually pretty funny. Has anyone noticed how women are the prominent activist leaders on the Left these days?

    • I’m not sure that’s an actual ie. “biological” woman, it looks an awful lot like Anti-2A Parkland HS shekel-grabber Cameron Kasky.
