Why wimps are socialists

Look at Russel Norman…body like a half-sucked throatie…wimp, even had his flag taken off him by some Chinese…socialist. Look at most hipsters and green supporters..wimps…weeds. Not a real bloke among them.

Now we know why. Tough blokes are more right wing.

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.

Psychological scientists Michael Bang Petersen of Denmark’s Aarhus University, and Daniel Sznycer of the University of California, say political motivations may have evolutionary links to physical strength.

The scientists say men’s upper body strength predicts and influences their political opinions and this link reflects psychological traits that evolved in response to our early ancestral environments and continue to influence behaviour today.

“While many think of politics as a modern phenomenon, it has – in a sense – always been with our species,” they say. 

Half men are socialist sooks.

In early days, distribution of resources was achieved through a show of strength as opposed to judicial processes.

With this theory in mind, the scientists set about to prove that upper body strength – seen as a symbol of protecting resources – would predict men’s opinions about wealth distribution.

Measuring bicep size and socio-economic status, researchers collected data from hundreds of men from the US, Denmark and Argentina which all have different welfare systems.

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

“Our results demonstrate that physically weak males are more reluctant than physically strong males to assert their self-interest – just as if disputes over national policies were a matter of direct physical confrontation among small numbers of individuals, rather than abstract electoral dynamics among millions,” they say.

    Someones gonna come screaming in here and say “But but but they are weaker because they are smarter instead and more evolved” or some shit.

    • In Vino Veritas

      Not sure that this can be so. Man’s brain has evolved significantly since we became meat eaters. The implication is that vegetarians are therefore more stupid. Or at mininmum, devolving into stupidity. And there are more than likely, a disproportionate number of vegetarians that are supporters of the Green Party. Hmm, and given the body size thing, perhaps even in the supporters of the Labour Party.

        A recent discovery is ; early humans became adept at cracking open the skulls of dead animals , killed by other predators , to eat the brains .

      • kehua

        I`d buy into that. Thankyou.

  • dumbshit

    I wonder if a like study of the fairer gender would find that the ability to grow a good soup strainer is a strong indication of political leaning

    • Patrick

      Paul Henry no doubt has a hypothesy on this very topic.

  • TomTom

    Haha. Sounds like someone’s forgotten that April 1st was last month…

    • Hazards001

      Why? They’re not saying that puny little pricks are never going to be left leaning..just less likely.

      Its OK Tom..you can still join the man club…or not!

      • TomTom

        I’m confident in my sexual identity as a guy, so I don’t need to join some “man club” where idiots strut round like they’re the toughest thing round.

        • Hazards001

          Good for you geek..now go pay your loan off.

  • Gazzaw

    Hughes & Norman – they would make for a great pair of matching Mr Puniverse bookends.

    • Ronnie Chow

      Hughes is a shade vegetable . Norman is a carrot . Both need more sunlight .

  • Ronnie Chow

    Not only that , we’re more attractive to woman and more likely to bring home the bacon .

  • tarkwin

    That explains why I keep having these strange urges to beat the stuffing out of hippies, Greens and socialist whingers in general. It also explains why all the electorates up this way are held by National.

  • Just had a thought, if the Greens and Labour ever got power all the butchers will be closed down, and in place of them will be Potshops.
    True though you can tell idiots by the body type, NORMALLY?

  • Positan

    The whole essence of the Left is the grouping together of ineffectual wimps that they might gang up on (and in numbers thereby take from) “greedy bosses” or the (perceived as) “rich” – such tasks they’d never dream of as individuals. Leftists simply don’t possess the flair or drive necessary to achieve success as individuals, and so they gather together in numbers where the loudest voice or the touchy-feeliest of attitudes will dictate their “direction.”

    That’s why Labour/Greens are so useless in government when it’s incumbent on them to treat “the big picture” – and why such a shambles always follows their ejection from office. Enduring policies have first to be carefully analysed as to their overall impact, which is an impossibility for tear-jerkers and non-thinkers.

  • High_Tory

    It also has a lot to do with men being considerably smarter than women – (females vote Labour and men do not) – and the left having absolutely no policies or philosophies which appeal to men anymore. Straight ones, anyway.


    • Lion_ess

      … men being considerably smarter than women – (females vote Labour and men do not) …..
      You must enjoy just making shit up and posting it on a blog.

      • High_Tory

        No I just tell the truth – and the PC brigade THINK it is made up

  • johnbronkhorst

    Slightly off the subject:

    On Yahooxtra today:

    “University students who have an exaggerated belief in what they deserve, known as ‘excessive entitlement’, tend to do worse in their exams than those who take personal responsibility and are internally motivated for success.”

    • johnbronkhorst

      Should be applied to all aspects of life!!!!

    • Agent BallSack

      Its on topic, youre talking about the next crop of Neo Labour.

      • johnbronkhorst

        It could be improving with time, after all, Student Unions are now NOT compulsory. Where will labour get their next crop of fools from and how will they pay for their training.

  • spollyike

    Women (who have bugger all upper body strength) are more often the benefactors of entitlements and other social wealth redistribution practices. It makes sense they would be more likely to support the socialist progressive doctrine that benefits them.

    The problem with such policy, is being focused on legislatively assisting politically active minority groups and paying very little attention to the long-range implications that such inefficiencies create.

    But to classify: feminists push for social programs and entitlements more than women in general do. Not all women are feminists e.g. Ayn Rand, (just most of them).

    “International Women’s Day is now celebrated by working class women and those of the ruling class alike. Yet it was first called by the revolutionary socialist women of the International Women’s Socialist Organisation (IWSO)…”http://www.socialistreview.org.uk/article.php?articlenumber=11586

  • Anon9999

    Hmm. Does this explain why only one side of Aaron Gilmore’s upper body is strong?

  • Justsayn

    I have been studying left v right characteristic for 36 years now, and plan to publish my thesis next year. I think they are correct on the physique front in a New Zealand context.

    Other related facts:
    1. Women from the left are more likely to have facial hair.
    2. Men on the right have larger penises.
    3. Anyone driving an SUV is a Gilmore, be they left or right.
