American men have started to talk like WOMEN: Californian study finds that males are rising in pitch at the end of sentences


[quote][url="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2519363/Men-started-talk-like-WOMEN-Study-finds-males-rising-pitch-end-sentences.html"]First men became enamoured with grooming regimes, but now it seems the metrosexual man has started talking in a more feminine way too.
A new study has revealed that modern men are starting to ‘uptalk’ by rising in pitch at the ends of sentences.

Also more woman want masculine roles/jobs.

The Daily Fail tabloid? Really?

They also claimed that Facebook and Twitter cause cancer, and scientists are evil because they base their decisions of facts.

Well, SOME American men.

Must be those log cabin Republicans. Sen Teddy Cruz sure has a whiny, high-pitched voice. And he talks about being a "squish" way too often.

Actually, this is not really anything new. Sociolinguists have long noted that language shifts--including shifts in vocabulary, pitch and pronunciation--are often initiated by women, with men following afterwards. It has going on a long, long time and has nothing to do with being a "metrosexual."

His whiny voice is like nails on a chalkboard.
