And many other stereotypes, although they may be unfair and sometimes exaggerated, persist because they have an element of truth to them. And so it is with clusters.
When the literature and our Drs. talk about clusterhead characteristics such as smoking, drinking and pronounced secondary sexual characteristics ( such as height, rough coarse skin and so forth ), it may very well be that it is not some conspiracy of ignorance on their part, but rather because it IS TRUE.
Does the smoking and drinking cause clusters – of course not. But do we tend to smoke and drink a lot more than the average bear – you betcha. Could these other physical traits be an indication of lots of testosterone coursing through our veins – you betcha.
So my point is this – rather than develop some CH.com clusterhead orthodoxy that says all previous thoughts, literature, comments are without merit – maybe, just maybe they tell us a lot.
I believe that although it is nothing more than a tendency and there is wide variation within our population – clusterheads do have excess testosterone and as a result have pronounced secondary sexual characteristics. In my case, I was very lucky because although I did not get a lot of height ( I am only 5’10” ) I did get a nice bald spot on the crown of my head.
One other note – I have met and seen every woman at ch.com – in fact I have met every woman who has ever had a cluster and they are exceedingly feminine – there is not one moustache among them. I believe that our women may have a little extra testosterone but it is more than counterbalanced by lots of estrogen.
I better quit while I am ahead.
