In a new study that correlates testicle size with parenting abilities, the data collected seems to indicate that men with large testicles are less involved with raising and taking care of their children.

In other shocking news, there was a study conceived that measured a guy’s balls and then noted what kind of father he was.

The study was intended to test the evolutionary theory that animals are built to either breed or nurture. As if there’s not enough stigma attached to the size of a guy’s penis already now we have to worry about a woman seeing us out in public being loving, doting fathers and knowing that the only thing she’s thinking is how puny our balls probably are.

The larger the volume of their testes, the less the men were involved in daily parenting activities like changing diapers, said the study by researchers at Emory University in Georgia.

In comparison, men with smaller testes showed more nurturing activity in the brain when shown pictures of their children, and also were more involved in their children’s upbringing, according to surveys answered separately by both the fathers and their female partners.

“I wouldn’t want to say that men with large testes are always bad fathers but our data show a tendency for them to be less involved in things like changing diapers, bathing children, preparing meals, taking them to the doctor and things like that,” said lead author James Rilling, an associate professor of anthropology.

Honestly, I don’t even want to know what kind of horrible father that guy with the 132-pound scrotum is/would be according to the results of this study.
