Rightwing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is now saying that penises have been getting smaller and smaller over the past several decades due to “chemicals.”
“It does this to humans as well,” Jones said. “That’s why genitals – I don’t care if you’re black or white – are a third the size they were of a 1960s male.”

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
“So the media makes jokes about that a few months ago when I gave the example of, you know, ‘If your daddy’s johnson was a foot long, yours is six inches long. And if yours was six inches your son will be three inches. And then one won’t even have a penis.’
“We can make jokes about that all day long, but this isn’t a game. And you can say, ‘OK, well who cares?’” he continued.
“Well, we’re sterilized. And the sperm counts are down 96%,” he said.
Jones also claimed that girls are being “hyperfeminized” and having periods at age three and five-year-olds are getting pregnant.
Alex says the globalist plot also affects girls: “3 year-old girls are now having periods. 5 year-old girls are now getting pregnant, because these chemicals hyper-feminize females and feminize males.” pic.twitter.com/aeyJo6IXk1

Studies have shown a decrease in sperm counts among humans, but it’s closer to a 50% decline over the last half-century, not 96%, and humans still remain able to reproduce.
There is less evidence that penis sizes are getting smaller. One study found that 12-month-old babies in 2005 were more likely to have a small penis compared to previous generations, which does not support Jones’s hyperbolic statements.
About the girls getting periods at age three and pregnant by five, he may have been referring to the case of Lina Medina, a girl who did exactly that after being the victim of rape at that young age. She was born in the mid-1930’s in Peru, so she’s not really a proof of the trend Jones is talking about.
