Jeesus H F'ing Christ. Look, the thing that started this was a "study" by some Danish researchers who claimed that men who were better fighters were more conservative. Their definition of a fighter? Someone with a big bicep. What they managed to do was build their class bias against men who do manual labor (where it has never been a secret at all that working class = conservative) and trumpet this as a revelation. That the study has gotten so much traction with such a stupid basis is the real story. Upshot is that selling confirmation bias is a real growth industry.
Oh and political views are bits of philosophy. This is more of the drivel that people are damned by biological determinism like ants -- except the people that write these studies who manage to see through the veil. (Anyone remember that racism used to be bad? Apparently that sort of narrow thinking wasn't the problem, it just wasn't aimed well enough at people with differing political views. But I digress...) Taking intellectuals to task for their stupidities seems to be impossible.
Full of shit as always,
PS. I've been doing martial arts for 30+ years and I will state flatly that biceps size is the most lame-brained, frankly idiotic way to measure fighting ability I have ever heard. As Orwell put it so well, "some things are so stupid only an intellectual would believe them."
