Fox News headline v. real headline of the day: sexist edition.

As far as the lady folk go, according to Fox Newsers, feminine is synonymous with pretty and this study is somehow relevant to politics!

why the fuck did they spend money to study this

who the fuck why is this ugh

This is definitely super important information to have about women politicians.

Super important

We should do a study to see which political group has the more handsome men. AMIRIGHT?

I’m going to look at this study from a different angle: Does this mean the Democratic Party is more accepting of women in power who don’t fit a traditionally feminine stereotype, while the Republican Party is chock full of women who likely wouldn’t be powerful within the party’s structure without fitting said mold?

Survey says….

Why is this important? Well, the grand scheme of things, it seems not — that’s wrong. It gives us another piece of information regarding the voting patterns of people who are liberal or conservative, how physical appearance and gender role conformity affects political success (for better or worse), and the differences in gender role perception among voters on the spectrum of gender and political ideology etc. With this knowledge, we can continue combat gender stereotyping among voters and the public as a whole.

That said, Fox Nation is pretty much the worst ever with headlines.
