I am sure you have heard about the femininity study that HuffPO, the Daily Beast, and other rags are talking about. It seems that low-IQ female Republican politicians like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are more feminine in appearance than more mentally acute female Democratic politicians like Janet Reno and Madeleine Albright. Yawn. This has prompted conservatives to hoot that Republican women as a whole are hot and to jeer at the liberal “crones.” Here is typical Republican proof of a beauty divide:
Two, of course, can play this silly game. And to demonstrate that the Republicans are full of crap, I only have to post two pictures:
So let’s move now to the other finding in the study that everyone so far has overlooked–and that is that male Democratic politicians are more “masculine” than male Republican politicians. I am not exactly sure what “masculine” means in this study but I can say that those of us who love strong manly men know that Democratic men–not just the politicians but Democratic men generally–are the sexiest men alive. We don’t need pictures to prove it. All we have to do is remember the hot, steamy, muscular guys who have sprung loose the coil and sent us blind and howling into the star swirl. They were Democrats all.
So here’s to Democratic men…who respect us and vote for us if we are smart, whether we are pretty or not…who keep our hearts open to the poor and the downtrodden…who inspire us to value love in its many different forms…who help us to live lives of intellectual adventure and scientific passion and wonder. Beautiful or plain, we would not trade places with any Republican alive. So take the study on femininity and stuff it…in a deep pit of hell if such a place can be found outside the shallow imagination of an evangelical Republican idiot.
