Where is the lie.
Where is the lie.
Meaning is personal to each of us. However, a new study published June 15 in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science suggests that some people might be better at finding that meaning than others — and the difference may come down to politics.
According to the study, which compiled survey results from more than 50,000 participants in 16 countries, people who identified as political conservatives were more likely to find meaning and satisfaction in their lives than liberals were.
“Political conservatives tend to be happier than liberals, a finding that has been labeled the ‘happiness gap’ in media reporting,” a team of psychologists from the University of Southern California (USC) wrote in the new paper. “One conservative commentator even described it as ‘niftily self-reinforcing; it depresses liberals.'”
They have a Common Purpose.
Apparently decades of observed mental illness, substance abuse, attachment disorder, later divorce, the cycle of abuse with their own children, trauma including PTSD and high suicide rates don’t count as ‘harm’.
Apparently they need to spontaneously combust.
that one went down the memory-hole… put it back
Rapist nanny state, called it.
Sex Ed is grooming, people. Sexualisation of minors is grooming.
In full, top article:
“PIE members were lobbying NCCL officials for the age of consent to be reduced and campaigning for “paedophile love”.
reduced to zero
campaign for sweetest spot on a stake
Their view that children were not harmed by having sex with adults appears to have been adopted by those at the top of the civil liberties group.
Today we publish extracts from an NCCL report written for the Criminal Law Revision Committee in 1976 when Mrs Hewitt was general secretary.
It says: “Where both partners are aged 10 or over, but under 14, a consenting sexual act should not be an offence. As the age of consent is arbitrary, we propose an overlap of two years on either side of 14.
They’re already prosecuting like this in cases by the CPS.
Minors can’t cry rape because their rapist is claiming willing.
And gets away with it. Look at the law.
‘Rape gangs’ are actually sex slave owners. It’s slavery.
(Pedo rings are just one form of sex slavery.)
Actually, consent documents would be a good idea but it’s called a marriage certificate.
‘Consent’ is a will o’ wisp for predators.
“Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage.
“The Criminal Law Commission should be prepared to accept the evidence from follow-up research on child ‘victims’ which show there is little subsequent effect after a child has been ‘molested’.
Gaslighting, victim blaming.
“The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all cases of paedophilia result in lasting damage.
Sexual predator says its teeth aren’t sharp.
“The present legal penalties are too high and reinforce the misinformation and prejudice. The duty of the court should be to inquire into all the relevant circumstances with the intention, not of meting out severe punishment, but of determining the best solution in the interests of both child and paedophile.”
Justice is dead.
Mrs Hewitt, 65, was general secretary between 1974 and 1983. After days of intense pressure, the former Labour MP for Leicester West finally admitted last week the NCCL was “naive and wrong” over its ties to PIE.
Sure. Save the hive.
She said: “Any suggestion that I supported or condoned the vile crimes of child abusers is completely untrue.
“As the NCCL archives demonstrate, I consistently distinguished between consenting relationships between homosexual men, on the one hand, and the abuse of children on the other.
men, not minors
and plenty of men are raped regardless
“When Jack Dromey, as NCCL chairman in 1976, vigorously opposed PIE at the NCCL AGM, he did so with the full support of the executive committee and myself as general secretary.”
However Labour MP Dromey’s opposition to PIE has been questioned by its former chairman, convicted paedophile Tom O’Carroll, who claims he felt “welcome” at NCCL meetings where he sat on the gay rights sub-committee.
Now they’re teaching it in primary schools!
Step by step instruction.
Mr O’Carroll said: “While they did not like PIE and did nothing to support our objectives, they were afraid of appearing insufficiently ‘right on’.
Thought Prison: “Effectiveness is irrelevant: for political correctness abstract and altruistic allocation is intrinsically superior to human agency; it is therefore morally necessary to replace individual freedom with systemic coercion, regardless of the consequences.”
Coercion vitiates consent. We, the People, do not consent.
“Consequently they were nothing like as strenuous and public in their efforts to distance themselves from PIE as they are now claiming.
“Dromey is quoted as saying ‘I was at the forefront of repeated public condemnations of PIE and their despicable views’. That’s news to me. Maybe by ‘public’ he meant imprecations muttered to cronies at his local pub.”
Dromey’s wife Harriet Harman, deputy leader of the Labour party, was legal officer at the NCCL between 1978 and 1982. She has expressed her “regret” over the NCCL’s involvement with PIE but has pointedly declined to apologise.”
Bring back hanging when?
We need a referendum on how to deal with paedophiles.
I could think of a few.
It’s that time of year for a study-dump. Read until the end.
Better-looking (on AVERAGE):
“Good-looking individuals are more likely to have right-wing political views than less physically attractive people, according to a university study.
The authors of the report, Rolfe D. Peterson from the US Susquehanna University and Carl L. Palmer from the Illinois State University, examined the connection between physical attractiveness and political beliefs, applying multiple surveys measuring people’s attractiveness.
“More attractive individuals are more politically efficacious than their peers and more likely to identify as conservative and Republican than less physically attractive citizens of comparable demographic backgrounds,” the report read.”
Comparable demographic background, an important control.
PDF at: https://about.illinoisstate.edu/clpalme/Documents/Peterson%20Palmer%20The%20Effects%20of%20Physical%20Attractiveness%20on%20Political%20Attitudes.pdf
“Controlling for socioeconomic status, we find that more attractive individuals are more likely to report higher levels of political efficacy, identify as conservative, and identify as Republican.”
SES control is important.
“Politicians on the right look more beautiful in Europe, the U.S. and Australia.”
How to tell May isn’t really right-wing.
They should also study disease load (emphasizing STDs, which do affect appearance) compared to partisanship.
Support meritocracy, oppose the cult of equalism:
“Higher self-perceived attractiveness (SPA) increased support for inequality.”
“The political sympathies of scholars can be accurately assessed from photographs.”
“In contrast to politicians, Right-leaning scholars were not more attractive.”
The scholars haven’t hired image consultants.
What, do you think a man buys an expensive suit just for the suit?
“Right-leaning scholars were better groomed.
Controlling for grooming, Left-leaning scholars were more attractive”
This is supposed to be looking at genetic attractiveness, true attractiveness, not clothing/haircare/make-up?
Okay, I’ll let them have that one. They’re better at faking it, a trait of narcissism.
Less likely to cheat when expected to cooperate:
“Political Orientations Are Correlated with Brain Structure in Young Adults”
“We found that greater liberalism was associated with increased gray matter volume in the anterior cingulate cortex, whereas greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala.”
So they’re more gender neutral in the brain?
Because the same IQ can still be produced by structural differences between the sexes.
“Researchers found major differences in the amount of gray and white matter in the brains of men and women of the same intelligence, suggesting that men and women may derive their intelligence in different ways.”
“”These findings suggest that human evolution has created two different types of brains designed for equally intelligent behavior,” says researcher Richard Haier, professor of psychology at the University of California, Irvine, in a news release. “In addition, by pinpointing these gender-based intelligence areas, the study has the potential to aid research on dementia and other cognitive impairment diseases in the brain”
Again, the same IQ score.
Man Card isn’t a MENSA card, accomplish something.
Sexual dimorphism didn’t stop at the neck.
But white matter is generally more important for HIGH IQ:
White matter could only be imaged recently.
“They found a strong correlation between the integrity of the white matter and performance on a standard IQ test.”
Although grey matter can matter too, white matter cannot be denied EITHER:
“Positive relationships were found between FSIQ and intracranial gray and white matter but not cerebrospinal fluid volumes. Significant associations with cortical thickness were evident bilaterally in prefrontal (Brodmann’s areas [BAs] 10/11, 47)
IQ so real you can scan someone’s brain, almost.
and posterior temporal cortices (BA 36/37) and proximal regions.
Sex influenced regional relationships;
Before any sexist bitch goes to twist this, different does not mean inferior. This is a study of intelligence, NOT stupidity.
You can’t prove a negative and individuals are not groups?
The obvious pointed out? Okay, let’s continue.
women showed correlations in prefrontal and temporal association cortices, whereas men exhibited correlations primarily in temporal–occipital association cortices.
An idiot reading that would assume women are smarter, prefrontal doesn’t always mean smarter, necessarily, it’s just a group-level skew of structural difference. However, it does explain the higher female average.
In healthy adults,
important distinction, many brain studies are conducted on the undeveloped (teens) or pathologies
neither of which generalize to a HEALTHY, ADULT population
[sorry for the smart people tuning in, idiots twist what I type]
greater intelligence is associated with larger intracranial gray matter and to a lesser extent with white matter.
Plot twist: both matter.
Almost like we evolved.
Variations in prefrontal and posterior temporal cortical thickness are particularly linked with intellectual ability.
PF – registered as female strength, generally.
PT – registered as male and female strengths, generally.
This isn’t better/worse, it’s apples/oranges.
Even race overwhelms sex as a confound in IQ (so does class, education etc).
Sex moderates regional relationships that may index dimorphisms in cognitive abilities, overall processing strategies, or differences in structural organization.”
Trans. sex differences real yo.
Overall, key word.
Moderates, may index, differences. As in, these processes still occur but like a road trip, each take different paths different enough to map but not distinct enough to be unrecognizable.
Estrogen, which men also NATURALLY produce, also boosts brainpower.
Study here but my commentary explains it:
Whereas, everyone knows, testosterone (which women also produce) correlates to violence.
Nothing is all-good, all-bad in hormones.
“A moment of silence for all the women in history who married dumber men.”
They should study political economic wing and compare it to natural/un-supplemented hormone levels.
As in, a man who ‘needs’ steroids for vanity is less of a man.
They should also look at whether men going onto steroids drop in IQ score because it competes with their organic estrogen that makes them handle stressors better.
[Update: after checking, they did. Here it is.]
“long-term high-dose AAS exposure may cause cognitive deficits, notably in visuospatial memory.”
“These results remained stable in sensitivity analyses addressing potential confounding factors.”
The dumb jock stereotype is true!
It gets better!
Actually, it causes brain damage!
This is amazing!
Fake masculinity is really bad for men. You can’t cheat code becoming a man.
Long-term AAS use is associated with right amygdala enlargement and reduced right amygdala rsFC with brain areas involved in cognitive control and spatial memory, which could contribute to the psychiatric effects and cognitive dysfunction associated with AAS use.
The MRS abnormalities we detected could reflect enhanced glutamate turnover and increased vulnerability to neurotoxic or neurodegenerative processes, which could contribute to AAS-associated cognitive dysfunction.
Now the right amygdala enlargement sounds like the natural conservative difference but understand it’s rooted, not in experience and genuine masculine virtue, but chemical dependence. Without the drugs, it’ll shrink right back and possibly atrophy.
This would be like congratulating a tall guy who took HGH for his superior genetics. No. It’s a superficial, fake result.
The cognitive control is impaired, that’s regression. The meat head stereotype is true, biologically. Useless.
I wonder how many male suicides were on steroids? Both groups happen to be middle-aged men in fear of the Wall.
Whatever the details, it makes them biologically vulnerable compared to their natural state, the opposite of fitness.
Ironically, they’re more vulnerable to microplastics and xenoestrogens.
To further screw the point in… that brain region explicitly mentioned?
Right amygdala rsFC study:
“In high HA scorers, we also observed stronger right amygdala rsFC with the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC), which is implicated in negative affect regulation.”
It’s a girly brain thing to do with harm avoidance. [aka common sense]
“may represent a vulnerability marker for sensitivity to stress and anxiety (disorders).”
So the meat head with reduced volume (therefore not conservative*) is dumber, senses dulled by drugs and more likely to fail to get the brain signals to avoid trouble. Sounds like a future in handcuffs. They can’t perceive danger nor regulate negative emotions like anger or shame after rejection. Basically, they’re future chimp-outs waiting to happen, whatever their race**. Less able to CONTROL emotions, the broflakes.***
Hair-trigger temper calling out people for looking at him.
The guy who picks on people but never actually expects to get hit.
Will grab a woman and be shocked she slaps him. That’s the one.
*because, again “greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala.”
[as referenced above]
yet they have less?
So steroids make men more left wing. It isn’t the correct area and type to be considered otherwise.
ISN’T SCIENCE FUN, FELLOW RED PILLS.
ACCEPTING FINDINGS EVEN WHEN WE DON’T LIKE THEM, BRO.
My guess is it messes with their sexual reward system and produces impotence, porn addiction, dissatisfaction.
Steroids do cause impotence (PC term is ED). Does it lower sperm count?
DING DING DING WE HAVE A WINNER.
I am good at this.
“Infertility is defined by the WHO as the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse and a male factor is present in up to 50 % of all infertile couples. Several conditions may be related to male infertility.
Substance abuse, including AAS, is commonly associated to transient or persistent impairment on male reproductive function, through different pathways. Herein, a brief overview on AAS is offered. Steroids biochemistry, patterns of use, physiological and clinical issues are enlightened. A further review about fertility outcomes among male AAS abusers is also presented, including the classic reports on transient anabolic steroid-induced hypogonadism (ASIH), and the more recent experimental reports on structural and genetic sperm damage.”
hypogonadism = tiny balls
“In layman’s terms, it is sometimes called interrupted stage 1 puberty”
You’d have to be a moron already to think supplementing that shit makes you manly.
Nice muscles bro, shame you hit rewind on puberty!
They impair their body’s ability to naturally produce testosterone in future…. idiots.
Darwin Award category?
Big Pharma’s best customer? Like Israel’s Viagra use. Israel and America, top consumers.
**Logically we should restrict steroid use to lower the crime rate. We can’t have gorilla people chimping out and blaming da drugs.
***There are few things less masculine than a man who throws tantrums because Hulk RAGE entitlement. The mantrum has neurological correlates, as we can see.
As for the ACC lefty brain finding:
..I didn’t forget.
“Through these connections, the ACC is thought to be involved with a number of functions related to emotion including the regulation of overall affect, assigning emotions to internal and external stimuli, and making vocalizations associated with the expression of states or desires.
The ACC also seems to contribute to the regulation of autonomic and endocrine responses, pain perception, and the selection and initiation of motor movements. Additionally, there are other areas of the ACC that are involved in various aspects of cognition ranging from decision-making to the management of social behavior.”
And about sexual potency….
I order these for a reason.
Right-wingers more sexually satisfied:
“A new YouGov survey, which asked over 19,000 participants from the UK, France, Germany, Sweden and Denmark about both their politics and their sex lives, has found conservatives to be happier in the bedroom than liberals, with those identifying as “very right-wing” found to be the happiest.”
So much for the benefits of slutting. Muh experience. Yes, experiencing a burning sensation.
If you want a better sex life, don’t be a manwhore.
Chastity is a virtue. Less stress when single, hot sex when married.
I deserve an Ig Nobel for all this connection-making. It could save the West.
While I’m putting out fires imagined by shrill men.
Wings don’t really exist anymore. Mostly, nobody cares about capitalism/socialism.
It’s all about the moral issues, the personal issues and what affects society. Social harm.
So it’s social harm against too much freedom (at what point can society curtail your damaging, antisocial expression, adult?)… the cult of individualism is dying and we could never afford it as a society/nation/race in the first place.
The libertarian who wants good roads and doesn’t want to pay for them.
“You don’t own me, but you owe me!” entitlement.
And the cognitive dissonance applies elsewhere.
Plus the left wing says it’s beyond question. That is illiberal. They’re dogmatic because their foundational principles are being shown, empirically, to be entirely false and actually damaging the societies they’re in.
They refuse to admit.
Brexit 2nd vote?
Not our President?
Closed to reality.
IQ isn’t real but GPA is!
We need funding to teach IQ!
NURTURE IS ALWAYS TRUE. NATURE IS A LIE.
People can change but if they don’t want to it’s your fault. Don’t expect criminals to stop being criminals! Don’t apply our logic unless we say it’s okay! We love freedom of thought! We’re intellectuals!
Echo chambers of lies. Nice lies, killing you softly.
You don’t need to suffer, we’ll bail you out with free money if you sell us your soul.
The fake angel pouring poison in your ear. You didn’t sin, it was an accident, wasn’t it?
Learned helplessness, enabling destructiveness, pathological altruism – all abuse.
They can’t rule people unless they’re broken. Male and female. Poor and rich.
It intentionally reduces healthy independence and produces conflict by appealing to sin. Eat the apple, you deserve it. For every group. Everyone is weakened. Decadent rich, stupid poor, angry women, apathetic men.
By appealing to every group’s unique weakness, the chaos seems natural.
Men are encouraged to sleep around and women are encouraged to hate their libido.
Insecurity in everybody.
The Left is even eating itself in a purity spiral, purity of delusion.
Virtue signalling insanity. Whoever can pretend the most insane bullshit will become utopia magically (magical thinking) wins. Spot it.
The blind optimists win.
trans. I can afford to ignore reality. Countersignal.
They create nothing so have no new solutions to their own problems, nobody to blame but don’t say they’re useless! The first time it went wrong didn’t count, try try again! Socialism has never been tried, guys!
You can’t argue with a moral relativist.
There’s no evil to attack, they don’t see it.
They don’t really believe in laws because what enforcement? All feelings.
What about the victim’s feelings?
Where are the principles? Lowest immoral common denominator. Celebrated inferiority (below norm). Look how well we’re doing, we can afford this!
Like atheists arguing in bad faith about what God isn’t. You can’t prove a negative and they don’t believe in the positive concept they discuss – it’s all theory, wishy washy useless pontificating. It’s trolling, debate is impossible. They don’t care. They pretend to care.
Special plea: dehumanizing and ruining people’s lives is virtuous when we do it. Delusional hand of God, Angel of Death type reasoning. That is what all evil people believe.
They are deliberately blind to their own evil. They think they’re flawless based on what they eat.

Age of Hypocrisy. Send in the pretentious clowns.
Send every stray African to rich California and London areas, only the liberal ones.

That’s why I’m like
99.99% of the time. It just isn’t worth it. Why out anything? Why make enemies? Why label yourselves when it’s just a target to shoot at? You don’t need labels, they make you less effective in life. They can lock you up for a label, it’s like school, don’t stick out.
Ideological Greyman. Just introduce one idea at a time when appropos. Drip drip dip.
Act on the information you have, don’t try to fix idiots.
Like, if you need to plan, just plan. Don’t go round bragging like Noah building an ark.
With enough Overton, the Mrs Grundy morons will switch eventually for popularity. That’s how they work. Because they’re useful idiots.
At least men can physically defend yourself and experience lower stress levels when threatened (women have more active emotional centres). That’s without going into “friendly fire” of fake conservatives saying women have no place like men reproduce asexually and want to become full-time stay-at-home dads.
You can feel it through the screen.

Most news items now are just whiny people looking for attention.
The fact they’re trying so hard to meme is telling.
