View Metrics. Congratulations, you now have a deeper, manlier and sexier voice. At least for the next day or so. A deep voice is an inherently masculine strait [sic], being a symptom of both size and testosterone levels. Deep voices elicit attraction from women and respect from men. I was born…with a typical, merely average pitched voice. I was also born with a perfectionist streak which when met with discovering game and self-improvement meant maximizing all my attributes as best I possibly could, so having a merely average pitch voice was no longer good enough.
Your investment will be repaid in actual money. Analysis revealed, as the researchers had predicted, that larger companies typically had lower-pitched CEOs.
These deep-voiced men did earn more than their higher-voiced counterparts, but the income differential was not directly linked to voice-pitch. Rather it was a by-product of the link to company size, reflecting the fact that big companies generally pay their executives more. Apart from anything else, the study only makes claims about one particular group of men, namely CEOs of public companies. Why would we expect a deep voice to confer the same financial benefits on Joe the Plumber or Jon the IT guy?

In America it would be fair to say that this enthusiasm is the cultural norm. But there are a few dissenters, one notable example being Dr Morton Cooper , a practising speech pathologist who is also the author of a best-selling self-help book called Change Your Voice, Change Your Life. This causes them to fear and oppose PC.

This raises one of the reasons there are such negative connotations surrounding PC. This is one reason why having some sort of code of conduct with language can help it function better as well as stop perpetuating negative stereotypes. This is persuasive as it makes the reader feel as though they are able to have an input into language.
I agree that PC has had a very harsh and trivial portrayal in the mass media resulting in a negative reputation, and for this reason the values of today are to be against verbal hygiene. When discussing the positive impact PC has, she explains how it addresses issues in society rather than supressing them and helpt to make sense of and control our language. I agree with these points to an extent as language change is fundamental in society, and it is important to stop perpetuating negative stereotypes.

I also think that some views are instilled into society through morals and not just language so the negative connotations will always manifest themselves in the language as long as people still have those views.
