Rightys love to yell over people..in an attempt to appear to know what they are talking about..
They love to try to cover facts and make up crap as they go along. Proof is all over ATS.

Aren't a lot of them also gunners? Able bodied men who need guns to protect their families. Sad and pathetic..they love to make it sound, that if caught weaponless...they would be helpless to do anything.

They love to use people, items or stories in the arguments..but when someone else uses these same objects in arguments..they scream bloody murder. Case in point...Jon Stewart...hated by the right and when used in an argument..they label him and his show as a joke...but recently they used him for their own needs...and was praised...but only when he agreed with them.

So no this study is BS. Cowards,liars and hypocrites...would be about right...someone needs to waste more money and do another study...

You also just described the left absolutely perfectly. This is why both sides are useless to me. All either side does is argue the same argument and just change who it's directed at. You just made yourself to look as if you carry all of those same attributes you just railed against.

Makes sense. Remember, earlier this year there was a study which showed that right wing-minded people have more Neanderthal DNA than Dems. So this kind of goes hand in hand.

So basically, right wingers are unevolved in comparison to progressives/left wingers?

Might be too simple of an explanation, but it actually makes perfect sense in so many ways.

This study shows even more proof of this. Apparently right wingers use the more primitive parts of their brain when making decisions.


They found that Republicans used their right amygdala, the part of the brain associated with the body's fight-or-flight system, when making risk-taking decisions.

Men who aren't physically strong are pointless.

This might have been the case a few thousand years ago, but in case you haven't noticed, evolution has rendered intelligence more important than brute strength. Some of the world's smartest people are weak little runts, yet they have made the biggest difference to this planet. They don't need excess strength because if they feel threatened by someone, they can just hire evolution's leftovers to take care of it for them lol.

I'm not saying it's bad to be strong. I have a considerable amount of physical strength. But in today's world I hardly have any use for it. Intelligence is much more important.

Men who have no brains, even more so.

You need men with brains, otherwise you'll never know what time to show up for your construction job.

No wonder the occult leaders allow and push everything to effeminate men in our society, then they have a willing populace who unknowingly institute their plans. Just another "mental health" brainwashing article couched in evolutionary eugenics, identifying and labelling traits which must be shed to usher in the delusionary utopia of peace envisioned by those in leadership positions. Don't support socialism and communism? Bad man! You haven't evolved ! Have no fear, ANGELina Jolie's time cover replete with one eye and more brainwashing equating genetics and "peace of mind" is there for all of us to consume, brainwashing us to accept the upcoming genetic solution for this world to obtain peace - the "thought awakening through the opening of the gates of science and knowledge to revert Adamic man to his innate nature"....as given to us by the occult and their fave, the President of Iran and his Kabalahist cronies.

Mind control. Jesus Christ freed it, his adversaries enslave it. And as Israel proved, we collectively prefer the enslavement of man to the freedom and peace in Our Creator.

Interesting study though, nonetheless. I wonder how much taxpayer money, if any, was used on the part done at UC.


Don't trust any of these "studies". All political parties, and people with other agendas, will come up with so called "studies" that "claim" to back their agendas, most of it is bs.

We have seen in these forums "scientists" claim that "black men are less intelligent than white men", that the holocaust never happened, that liberals are more intelligent than conservatives and Republicans, etc, etc, etc, and they would even present their so called "evidence" to back their claims, but the truth is that most of these people make up theories with no real evidence to back such claims, they just want to further their agendas with lies, and or exagerations.

You got it all backwards, and by your avatar you seem to be one of those GAMERS who thinks that having a sword makes you "honorable", when you really have no idea whatsoever what honor is... It is not a trait of an inanimate object fyi...

BTW, in case you didn't know CITIZENS having firearms are the reason why you have some amount of freedom, not to mention that I am sure one or more of your own ancestors had to take up arms for freedom, yet people like you LOVE to piss, and whine about those of us who want to keep one of our inherent rights...


Go back to playing only games please.

Well... I may not be a statuesque figure of a man, but I can push a Land Rover Defender, make kindling for a fire using my feet to smash the wood, and lift a refrigerator. I am also a left leaner. That is to say I think that the weak should be defended over and above the needs of the strong, in terms of finance certainly. I believe that the poor work harder than the rich, and do more important work in the main as well.

But I can also work like a dog, and achieve great feats, despite having smallish looking arms. Its not about the size of the muscle. I have met fellows with much bigger arms than me, who cannot even carry thier own shopping home. A good friend of mine used to do an awful lot of wieght training. Despite living less than five hundred yards from the supermarket, he used to call me up to carry the bags if he knew I was in town. In his own words "I can bench the weight of a guy your size, but I cant carry it".

So I can out work weight lifters too. Still support original Labour values, unlike those supported by the current labour party. Strength is nothing without respect, honour, and care for your fellow man. All you get without a decent balance of these, is a wrecking ball of a person, with chaos his only companion.

Well.. ."Most men in that study" should be the paradigm.

I can kinda see how this would occur. The men they're describing typically have high testosterone levels, which is associated with aggressive behavior (the "it's a threat -- fight" rather than a "negotiate" quick response) as well as an increase in risky behavior.

Now, when a man falls in love (and it doesn't matter how high his testosterone level is), the testosterone level drops. This *may* be an evolutionary adaptation so that he doesn't go all hyper-male on his mate and children and harm them (estrogen levels are associated with empathy.. not with wimpiness. Next time you think that 'estrogen=wimply', think about what happens if you stand between a bear and her cubs or a lioness and her cubs. The male won't care, but the female is going to carve you into chittlins. (on a personal level, it would not be a wise idea to threaten any of MY children in my presence. I may be a wimpy girl, but if you attack my babies (so they're 30 years old now. Doesn't matter), you're going to have to deal with Psycho-Mom.)

Liberals tend to rate higher on empathy scores... so... I can kinda see how this might occur. What's not clear to me is if it's cause or effect.

Men who are physically strong as more masculine (vis a vis effeminate) and are probably more apt to have the warrior gene and be a proponent of gun ownership; ergo, another reason that TPTB would like to emasculate men.

So metro-sexual guys with lots of goo in their hair and who don't like to kill spiders tend to vote Democrat and Texas cowboy types who wear blue jeans and/or work on ranches tend to vote Republican? Okay ... I can see that.

I can agree with this in general based on most of the people I know and have lifted with. But as for me personally, at my strongest, when I was seriously body building (40 pounds heavier than I am now) I also had my most liberal outlook on politics. It might have more to do with the fact that I was in college at the time and I think that did more to make me less conservative than anything. And I was not a kid then either, I graduated at 47. I was most conservative as a new father in my 20's I think.

Oh, and that's not me in my avatar, just some random guy...

There are actually very few people who have the warrior gene, and the gene itself does not make for a masculine looking person. Its only effect on the person who has it, is to make them thrive on adrenaline highs, like being in fights, explosions, car wrecks, and major accidents.

It has no effect on physique what so ever, and almost none on the outwardly obvious attitude of the person involved. Very often, one would only be able to identify a carrier of that gene by actions they partake of, whilst in a situation which triggers the unusual psychological response. We are talking totally calm classical literature debate, suddenly interupted by Conan the Barbarian, followed by more Book Club: A Glance at Shakespear.

I hit the gym, workout, and run so I don’t turn out to become a “wimpy” man. I’m a go getter and believe in providing for one’s self and family. I believe it’s my responsibility to protect and care for my family and not the governments. Because when seconds count, the authorities are minutes away.

I believe in charity, I do not believe in charity via force provided to you by the IRS. I do believe in paying taxes, just not 52% of my incomes worth, maybe 10%. I tend to think 10 moves ahead so I can retire on my own doing and not rely on the governments’ Social security. Let’s face it, it won’t be there when I retire 40 years from now.

So all this makes me a…….libertarian

That is not always true,for example in my case,I am a 6.10, 220 lbs successful rich single man and I am in a perfect shape,most of my associates call me very charming and good looking and I am still as leftist as i can get ...So, there are always exceptions to the rules,if any.

Reports like this are akin to the left saying that smarter men are more apt to be liberals!
I believe it is more likely to be a combination of influences!
