Conservatives are more attractive

Conservatives are more attractive
We already new this, but here's confirmation:

https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/...29762547EE

Quote:Physical attractiveness is an important social factor in our daily interactions. Scholars in social psychology provide evidence that attractiveness stereotypes and the “halo effect” are prominent in affecting the traits we attribute to others. However, the interest in attractiveness has not directly filtered down to questions of political behavior beyond candidates and elites. Utilizing measures of attractiveness across multiple surveys, we examine the relationship between attractiveness and political beliefs. Controlling for socioeconomic status, we find that more attractive individuals are more likely to report higher levels of political efficacy, identify as conservative, and identify as Republican. These findings suggest an additional mechanism for political socialization that has further implications for understanding how the body intertwines with the social nature of politics.

That's nice, dear.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

They put a fine coat of paint on shitty policies. So what?

One thing I have noticed is that Mormon women are almost always very beautiful. Not sure how or why that is, but it's definitely been an observation.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

That's obviously bullshit, since I'm not Conservative.

Cath, I don't know what Mormons you're seeing.

I'm not saying that ALL Mormon women are beautiful, but that they do seem to have a higher number of beautiful women than any other social class, per my unbiased observations.

I never knew any growing up in Ohio and Florida, but since joining the Air Force, there's been a lot of them... mostly all from Utah. I can almost tell when I meet someone now that they are Mormon based on how they look lol.

I've had the opposite experience. They seem pretty average to me (like everyone else), and they dress down.
