Boys with sisters are more likely to be 'sexist and Republican ...

Boys with sisters are more likely to be 'sexist and Republican because they are never made to cook or clean' research claims

Having only female siblings makes boys more likely be Republicans as adults, new research claims.

Professors from Loyola Marymount University and Stanford University analyzed surveys completed by more than 3,000 individuals when they were aged ten plus in 1987 and again a decade later.

They concluded that men in their 20s and 30s who grew up with sisters and no brothers were 8.3per cent more likely to identify as Republican because they developed 'more traditional views of gender'.

I don’t have sisters and after a stint as a Libertarian I went to being a Republican.

I resent that implication. The fact that I have a sister has nothing to do with my sexist attitudes. And I’m not a Republican either.

Loyola Marymount University and Stanford University are private institutions. I don’t know if the government funded these studies or not.

“Sexist” meaning they do not treat women like sex objects?

The leftist dictionary messes this all up.

Given their support of NSA 4th Amd violating operations and willingness to jump on the Amnesty bandwagon do you still want that affiliation?

Well yeah we have to something with money so that we can’t have White House tours for schoolchildren, Air Shows , fireworks or parades to honor our troops. So we spend it on the most asinine things imaginable so there are no funds available for honest patriotic programs. After all it’s the Obamanation way!

Well, I have 4 sisters and I started out my voting career by voting for Jerry Brown (thus the screen name). It only took Jimmy Carter and a stint overseas as a married junior airman to change my mind. By the way, three of my sisters are conservatives. The odd one out is a raving lunatic liberal. Makes for interesting family reunions.

Considering that I'm 100 times more effective as an R than I was as a (pro-life) L 15 years ago, damn straight I'll take that affiliation. It's my party as much as Karl Rove's. I helped kick out RINO Joe Schwarz in 2006 and replace him with Tim Walberg who is a good guy and good congressman.

I have both sisters and brothers. I’m one of nine. What made me a Republican are the evil, execrable democrats. Now the Republicans, at least the GOPe, are doin’ their d@mnedest to make me something else.

What a stupid waste of newsprint. I have a sister and, while I am a conservative, I also cook and clean in concert with my wife.

People who buy into this crap are dumber than the so-called "researchers" who came up with it!

Six boys and one girl in my family growing up. My sister is so conservative that she makes me look left wing. Explain that! BTW, we all learned to cook, clean and do outdoor chores. That's the way it works in a big family.

My sister actually enjoyed cooking and I didn't, so we would trade chores.

Well, clearly, you are a 3-legged anteater with gourmet tastes and hobo style; you're self-centered when you aren't giving generously to charity and adopting stray puppies! And, you're obviously confused about actually having brothers AND sisters; you more likely have brothers OR sisters, depending on with which you are more angry at any given time!

Finally, you're an intelligent FReeper who has been around for a long time and someone who (I hope) has a good sense of humor to let me mess with you like this!

I had three sisters. They’re all huge libs. They did virtually no housework, apart from doing the dishes, when they were kids and never even learned to cook. One is single and the other two’s husbands do all the cooking.

Well, they got the Republican part right - but I always thought having three younger sisters tended to make me more protective, supportive, and communicative with females than many others - maybe that’s what passes for “sexist” these days.....

Yes, “sexist” these days means you treat women with repsect and not like sex objects.

I have two sisters and no brothers. I started out life as a Democrat, and am now an independent. My sisters are both libs. I was not taught that my sisters should wait on me, and they didn’t. Another BS study.

I saw a female wearing a T-shirt recently “With an ass like mine who needs big tits.” I am not sure her age but I was a bit surprised to see the word on a shirt. Was I a sexist to try to form an opinion? /sarc.

As the "sister" I'm the rock-solid Conservative. My brother, on the other hand, is the lame-brained Liberal!

Probably all of this is the fault of our elder sister, another lame-brained Liberal!

My big sis made sure I cooked and cleaned regularly. She was a real taskmaster.

My brother had four older sisters. He took Home Economics and can cook and clean better than his wife. Both times she was with child, he came home from his ten hour work day and cooked. He is a conservative.
My husband is the youngest of two boys. He is as useless, around the house, as tits on a boar hog. His parents had hired help in the home. But he's a conservative.
