HUH?!: “Irritable Male Syndrome”

By Debbie Schlussel
Uh-oh. Jed Diamond–a less than masculine author and “psychotherapist” (who likely needs to be examined by one, himself)–has invented a new male disease to help the feminists out.
Since so many women use PMS as an excuse for anger and bitchiness–and so many other women get upset when men tell them they “must be PMSing,” Diamond comes to the rescue with a new form of psychobabblish:

“Irritable Male Syndrome” (IMS).

Can you really come up with an entire disease, just by studying Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid?
Apparently so. Well, Diamond actually ripped the idea off from Gerald A Lincoln, Ph.D., a researcher in Scotland.

Does Hezbollah’s Hassan Nasrallah Have Irritable Male Terrorist Syndrome?

(Sheikha Hassan Nasrallah Girlie Man by David Lunde/Lundesigns)

Doesn’t he realize that a preponderance of girlie-men (and Muslims–which may not be mutually exclusive categories) live in the UK? Hardly a good sample.
Diamond formed Girlie-Men, Inc. to address the prob. Well, actually that’s my nickname for his business, the Northern California (read: San Francisco and Village People) men’s health clinic and online support network, MenAlive.com. Please check your testicles at the door.
Says Diamond:

In many ways, women suffered and relationships suffered. It’s the same thing with IMS. If you say, he is just an irritable, grouchy old guy, you don’t address the problem and it gets worse.

And we wonder why Al-Qaeda laughs at us and why we don’t have the cojones to show terrorists we mean business . . . .

He’s probably the same guy who invented the word “misogyny”, as if there are so many people who hate women that we need a word for it.

IMS … in my circles, we call it “not gettin’ any.”

In my outfit we call it having to work for incompetent, closet carpetmunchers like “Peppermint Patty” and the “ICE Princess”…

Jed Diamond has made a critically erroneous misdiagnosis.
The entire problem here is that Jed suffers from Annoying Sissy Syndrome [ASS]. Hypersensitivity to other males with normal levels of testosterone is one of the primary symptoms.
Other symptoms include:
Limp wrists
Weak spine
Empty shorts
Pink shirt or tie
Presence of a [D] next to one’s name
Jed should have his condition looked at right away. With proper treatment and extensive therapy, a small number of sissies can go on to grow larger sacks and eventually become real men.

“Irritable Male Syndrome” (IMS)? Only a wuss would accept being labeled as suffering from IMS. Sounds like a queer situation indeed.

Jed and his ilk are famous for convening what most “normal” males would call a circle jerk. Isn’t it amazing how these ding-dongs are cuddled by our nitwit media and idolized for their informative lecturing on how we all have some pseudo-malady. Debbie, I hate to say it but it’s possible that the majority of real men have either died or left the building. Elvis, where are you!? The fact that this guy has an audience is incredible!
