Why Do Female Republican House Members Look More Like Women?

Quietman ~PWCM~JLA 2012/09/28 18:25:39
According to a UCLA analysis the more conservative a female House of Representatives lawmaker is, the more likely she is to look like a woman.

The UCLA psychologists were somewhat sure they could tell a book by its cover, and so they did. They also found the opposite to be true: Female politicians with less feminine facial features were more likely to be Democrats, and the more liberal their voting record, the more mannish they looked.

They declared the relationship so strong that politically uninformed undergraduates were able to determine the political affiliation of the representatives with an overall accuracy rate that exceeded chance, and the accuracy of those predications increased in direct relation to the lawmaker's proximity to feminine norms. The work was inspired by prior research which said that Americans have a better-than-chance ability to determine whether someone is a Democrat or a Republican on the basis of appearance alone.

    We all know what a female *politician* is:


    I deliberately spelled that with a "U", not an "I". Interpret that however you like.

    I don't know. With all of the beautiful female conservatives why are so many conservative men closeted homosexuals?

    Republican women look more like women because they are women

    Because they're not ashamed to be women.

    There are a number of Democrat women who break the mold.. Kirstan Powers is certainly ONE of them.. Leslie Marshall is another as is Tara Dowdell and a few others that appear regularly on Fox....

    The MOST interresting thing about Liberals on Fox News is something that you NEVER see anywhere else.. At BEST it's a RARE thing in the Liberal World anywhere you go..

    The women who appear on Fox news.. They KNOW how to SMILE..

    I mean a REAL life genuine smile of PLEASURE rather then the grin of a starving wolf looking at a crippled chicken or the mocking sneer that PASSES for Pleasure in the Liberal world..

    YOU look at women on the orther channels and at BEST you see faces set in STONE and at times,, ALL that's there is downright HOSTILITY etched PERMANENTLY on their ugly faces.. YOU look at the pictures of the Democrat Women in the top comment and it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to believe that not a ONE of them is over the age of 18..

    ROFLMAO.. I'm kidding of course but you get my point..

    EVEN liberal Women just plain look BETTER when they're on Fox or in the company of COnservatives..

    I would bet my RENT Money that they are HAPPIER too it wouldn't surprised ME to learn that they LIVE longer as well..
  • Hawkeye 2012/09/29 13:30:52
    The DEMOCRATS have "Created" this faux Republican "War on Women" to stoke the EGOS of their so called female followers who have waged a "War on WomanHOOD " for decades..

    THEY'RE the ones who started the "War between the Sexes" based on what they SAID was Female independence THEN went on to create a war on woman to ESTABLISH their dependecy on the Government..

    Democrat Women do NOT fight for the Freedoms and Liberties of Women in America..

    They merely fight on behalf of the interrests of the NEW masters which THEY choose to kneel down to....

    Interesting - perhaps it is because the republicans believe so strongly in responsibility for self and that may extend into the realm of care for self in appearance too. Just an idea, interesting analysis

    Conservative and republican women are ladies, liberal and democrat women are hard-core feminists. There is a difference.

    Hysterical, being fugly is an attribute of being a democrat woman. LMFAO. Kirsten Powers certainly breaks that stereotype but she is also one of the more reasonable members of the democrat side of the aisle. I thank her for calling out the mysoginists on her side of the aisle. This study is not mysoginistic because it's backed up by statistics.

    Yes, I like Kirsten, she's what I consider a lady too, and it shows.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for judging a woman by her actions, not her appearance. But as my mother used to say "Lands sakes girl, comb your hair, suck in your stomach and put a little color on!"
    Then again, what do I know? I love my lipstick and high heels.

    So the uglies are dems and the repubs are the tens.
  • Blueskys 2012/09/29 00:07:06
    Because the Republican females are younger?

    Pelosi I think is either a Grandmother or Great Grandmother, she raised a family before going much into politics.
  • dave s Blueskys 2012/09/29 05:09:13

    not necessarily younger, just better looking
  • Blueskys dave s 2012/09/29 06:18:16
    Well, you know men are suckers for a dolled up dame, and always vote for the most attractive. Women vice versa.

    not true with real men. real men like women who actually think for themselves and can take care of themselves, just like most conservative women
  • Blueskys dave s 2012/09/29 17:23:49
    lol so sorry but I am a real man and I know better!!!

    " women who actually think for themselves and can take care of themselves, just like most conservative women"
    The post 70's Feminists say precisely the same thing about themselves, and are Conservative in everything except sexual and religious issues.

    So your women are Republican Feminists?
  • dave s Blueskys 2012/09/30 16:00:57
    dave  s
    not at all. I have never considered conservative women to be feminists in the context that has historically been attached to that term. conservative women are certainly more intelligent and confident than those you consider to be feminists.

  • Blueskys $$*gat*... 2012/09/29 00:19:17
    If you mean the Feminists, they are not the anti war egalitarian "Modern Liberals" of Roosevelt and the Greatest Generation, and the New Deal.

    They are the opposite. They define "liberal' to mean 'being different'. They title themselves as Social Liberals. (This is done on purpose to confuse people).
    They are like Republican libertarians who are female supremacists at the same time.

    Now me, I'm a Modern Liberal. I'm with Roosevelt.

    You seem ignorant.
    If you do not like socialism, you must love Feminists, because they hate it too. Feminists are your allies.
