Strong men More Likely to have right wing views

Interesting research finding from the US, Denmark and Argentina they found those with larger biceps tended to be more right wing :) They speculate this is because historically distribution of resources was achieved through a show of strength, so the weaker members would probably favour greater distribution. The finding doesn't apply to women though.

MEN with strong upper body strength are more likely to vote conservatively while physically weaker males have a greater tendency towards left-leaning views.

And stronger men are more likely to protect their resources while weaker males favour more socialist views such as wealth distribution, researchers claim.

They found that irrespective of where the men came from, those with strong upper body strength were less likely to support a welfare system...

Interestingly, the researchers found no link with upper body strength and political persuasion among women.

Is this from the same researchers who found right wingers tended to be dumber than a bag of hammers? :)

What, big burly farmers are likely to be right wing and limp wristed, coffee sipping city gents are likely to be left wing? Who knew?

A general rule of thumb to remember in future.

Big, strong and dumb as hell: right wing.
Thin, meek and smart: left wing.

Lol. You need to take some studies with a grain of salt. A study reported some years ago found that vegetables felt pain when cut.

Translation- skinhead nazis are less likely to be employed and therefore have more time to spend in gyms lifting weights.

The corollary to all that of course is that it is generally intellectuals at some level who are appointed in government and not weightlifters.

Steroid users don't count. At least not past early middle age.

The study forgot to leave out the fact that most strong men are impotent and have small langers.

Their quest for bigger biceps is a desperate attempt by them to make up for their unfortunate shortcomings.

Adolf Hitler was no adonis. Neither were most of his henchmen. Don't think that Thatcher was in the Charles Atlas league either but most of the right wing men around her were poodles rather than alsatians.
Come to think of it I always thought that the smaller the persons brain the more likely they are to be right wing.

Rightwingery can be seductive for the instinctively angry. Then again the instinctively angry are more likely to be suffering from a personality disorder. Definitely more likely to be sociopathic.

'There is no such thing as society'. Quite possibly the most sociopathic comment from a leading politician since World War II.

People who keep themselves fit and participate in sport are probably less likely to be be whinging self pitying types. Not sure if there is any correllation there :)

This is right if you think women should have the vote, be permitted too wear trousers, look a man in the eye, have access to contraception or just consider them in any way your equal you are an Irish Times reading commie loving feminazi mangina allied to the Islamic brotherhood of the intergalactic hidden Imman intent on the feminisation of the great white western male and ultimately the destruction of the white race.

I know this because Tele tells me all the time and tele ain't ever wrong, ever!

Our dail is full of camp right wingers. How is that possible if this study is to be believed?

Big, strong and dumb as hell: right wing.
Thin, meek and smart: left wing.
Really? Who's general rule is that? I hadn't heard it before.
How would this rule apply to historic leaders?
Maggie Tatcher for example: Right wing: Big, No, Strong, No.. and dumb as hell, no, don't think so..
Ok, will try again, with the most obvious example of right wing.. Hitler.. Big, er, no, Strong, Again I have to say no, and finally dumb as hell.. Well no either interesting..
Ok, let's look at it from the other side: Left, and let's keep it local..
De Bert described himself as a socialist: So lets' see: Thin: nuff said, meek.. Er, and smart.. Well he was clever, I'll give you that..
Ok try again, with the current crop: Let's go with the leader of the main left opposition party: Gerry: Thin, yes.. meek.. no.. smart? He didn't look very smart when McDowell was deconstructing his economic "thinking" some years back.. did he?

Good rule of thumb..
