And indeed, DO male humans get more cantankerous as they get older?
Most males die before getting too old. In my experience, the vast majority of notably cantankerous old people are women.

I suspect that that aches, pains and general deterioration of the mind and body is the source of such cantankerousness amongst old people generally.

Btw, I don't think I've ever met anyone over the age of 70 whom I'd call pleasant or happy. Most of them seem quite miserable.
