Theyre calling it the Michele Bachmann effect. And no, its not the Minnesota congresswomans crusade to ban falafel from public schools. It refers to the relationship between a womans politics and her face.
Allison Yarrow hit the Highline to see if people could tell a difference between Democratic and Republican female politicians.
Women politicians with stereotypical feminine facial features are more often Republicans, found researchers at UCLA]. And the more feminine their features, the more conservative their voting records. They also found the reversethat women with more masculine facial features tended to be Democrats. Less gender-typical visages tracked with more liberal voting records. The correlation between face and party ideology was stronger for Republican women politicians than Democrats.
Psychology Professor Kerri Johnson and graduate student Colleen Carpinella applied computer modeling to pictures of the entire 111th U.S. Congress to determine which facial features and the spacing between them connote a more masculine or more feminine face. They then asked college students to look at the 434 portraits and guess which women belonged to each partyand they pegged Republican women correctly 98 percent of the time. Johnson and Carpinella posit that the reason for these facial correlations in women politicians stem from perceived gender roles entrenched in each partys DNA.
"The Democratic Party is associated with social liberal policies that aim to diminish gender disparities, whereas the Republican Party is associated with socially conservative policy issues that tend to bolster traditional sex roles," Johnson said in a UCLA release.
The trend did not apply to male politicians in the same way. Male Republican faces scored less masculine than Democrats, but the researchers found this less interesting than the data about women because they said male politicians are less likely to exhibit masculinity through their appearance than through their actions.

The Feminist movement became a Communist Front with Betty Friedan and is part of the Dialectical Materialism process— to group people.....so that you can pit them against one another. Men against women—instead of partners who are complementary. Rich against Poor. Race against Race, etc., to destroy civil society. It is why all children are put into boxes in our Marxists factories-—labeled-—”diversity” is to emphasize differences so people resent the “others”. We used to be a “melting pot”—now we are creating the Tower of Babel” on purpose....to collapse culture. (Cultural Marxists).
Government wanted to tax women also—and they pretty much forced them out of the homes by the 70’s, so they wouldn’t have the time and energy to raise children with strong character -—children would learn Right and Wrong from TV and strangers who teach Satanic Ethics-—same as public schools.
The State becomes mommy and daddy while mother works at a “more important” job and government can confiscate some of her money, also, not just her husband’s -—not realizing that the most important thing she does is to raise healthy, productive children who don’t burden society.
It is the fundamental Duty of parent’s to raise their biological children—and NOT the governments job. Education should be by the parents—Government will make slaves of your children if you allow them to control the schools. (Mill). Women are the first teachers and most critical to emotion health in children. Men are also crucial but the ROLE is different—to form a well-rounded person who can flourish and live in a world with both men and women.
Marxists are deliberately blurring the role of male and female in all literature and movies-—so the children are left confused —the ones with no involved parents. They destroy the language to make it meaningless-—like Heather has Two Mommies. It is deliberate propaganda to destroy Logic and Right Reason. (See tagline).
Geeez.....well, lemme help.
There are a bunch of 'how to' threads on FR that will show you the basic (and childishly simple) codes to use, to post pictures, change text, post links, etc.
Here's my favorite: HTML Tricks for FR
Here's another very good one: HTML Sandbox 2011
Monica Crowley, WOW. MOAR PLEASE! :P
lol I know about those
I’m too old to make it happen. But you go right ahead - it’s childishly simple...
That is why they hate the "Bush Tax Cuts"...
Got rid of the marriage penalty and and extra $1000 credit per child. Can't have that as they move down the road of Comrade Staaaliinnnn.....
Man is she trying to compete with Larry Craig here or what???
Some Freeper once commented she might be ‘marking’ her territory.
Like a lot of things, it's simple once you know it.
As for HELEN THOMAS;
Maybe if she did a little something with her hair, maybe a ribbon or bow, a touch of lace.. yep,
just might have changed everything, could even have become a First Lady or somthin.. What do you think.. jus sayin.. :)
What's with the snarky response? I was trying to help you. It's not true that you're "too old to make it happen". Posting pictures is simpler than a lot of things you already do on your computer.
And knowing it merely requires reading the instructions once. If a non-techie like me can learn the basics in an afternoon, anyone can.
Let's not forget R.B..
