    Everyone give this a read:

    The Sunlight Exposure Theory of Political Preference


    “Sunlight exposure has a dramatic impact on testosterone production in males, as plasma testosterone levels decline from November through April, and then rise steadily through the spring and summer until peaking in October. This directly impacts reproductive rates, as the month of June has the highest rate of conception.

    Those living in lower latitudes with generally lower precipitation rates have a year-round advantage in testosterone levels and the corresponding increase in sperm production. Indeed, the caucasian movement from Europe into lower latitudes was followed by higher birth rates, which were partly due to the sunlight-induced testosterone levels.

    The general tendency for males to be more conservative than females surely implicates the role of testosterone, with its masculinization of the human body, and in particular the brain. There is evidence of a variety of structural differences in the corpus callosum and the anterior commissure between males and females, along with generally more asymmetric functionality in male brain, and testosterone is the primary suspect.

    But there is also recent evidence of a testosterone-dopamine link, as Hull et al (2004) have found that testosterone ultimately increases basal dopamine release in males. Dopamine has been implicated by Tucker and Williamson in 1984 to be asymmetrically distributed in the left hemisphere, and Conservatives, in general, tend to favor left-hemisphere cognitive styles.

    This could explain the male movement towards conservatism, but in our most recent survey, females are becoming conservative at a faster rate. But there is a corresponding explanation with females, and it involves the hormonal counterpart of testosterone---estrogen. Estrogen varies naturally within the menstrual cycle, and also varies proportionately with sunlight exposure. Sunlight assists in the dual role of masculinizing men and feminizing women. There is also substantial evidence of an estrogen-dopamine link, so the female is subjected to a similiar hormonally-induced dopaminergic influence.

    But a Sunlight Exposure Theory of Political Preference explains the correlation between birth rates and sunlight exposure via increased testosterone and estrogen levels. That same elevation in testosterone and estrogen also promotes the release of dopamine, and the left-hemisphere is organized around a dopaminergic activation system. Conservatives in general exhibit more left-hemisphere cognitive styles than do Liberals. Sunlight's concurrent priming of the sex hormones and the left hemisphere's dopaminergic activation system could explain the elevated birth rates and the relative scarcity of caucasian liberalism beneath the 36 parallel, especially in the areas with higher average sunlight intensity.”

    They are more likely to get angry and then get aggressive and in terms of attitude, they believe that aggression is a better way or resolving disputes.
    In political terms they tend to take the more right wing view - be it Conservative in the UK or Republican in the US.
    The researchers looked at the political attitudes of actors in Hollywood and found those who played action stars were more likely to support military action by the US overseas.
    Its another silly article. Its basically connecting anger and aggression with conservative thinking which is nonsense. Political views are too complex to be put into 2 boxes, left wing/ right wing nonsense. The angriest, most aggressive people I see are left wing.

    Btw, Chuck Norris campaigns for the troops to be sent home from the middle east.

    Well he's probably some sort of a neo-isolationist Ron Paul paleocon/libertarian I guess.

    And I guess I'm an exception then among weak men...

    As I have said, there is no left or right, there are people who support the System and people who oppose it. Left-wing and right-wing are, for all intents and purposes, obsolete terms and relics of the 19th century. The terms didn't even exist before the French revolution, and today have become extremely convoluted from their original meanings, left-wing being those who supported the lower classes in the Revolution, and right-wing being those who supported the French aristocracy. Nowadays, the meanings are completely different in some countries; what Americans call left-wing, many Europeans would consider centrist or even center-right, for example.

    "Upper body strength in adult males is a crucial variable that appears to have impacts on a wide range of mental mechanisms.
    In other words to combat liberalism and worse we have to make doing push ups a regular part of the school curriculum .

    Actually the present use is more relic of the Cold War where left wing means a supporter of marxist economics and right wing for liberal economics.

    The terms didn't even exist before the French revolution, and today have become extremely convoluted from their original meanings, left-wing being those who supported the lower classes in the Revolution,
    Left wing where those in support of the revolution, with the extreme left thinking they where going far enough in destroying the old order. Cultural Marxism in this regard is left wing, since its entire goal is the overthrow of Western culture.

    and right-wing being those who supported the French aristocracy.
    More the Ancient Regime and their traditions and culture, then just those aristocrats that still took their traditional duties serious and did not fell for the destructive influences that the centralization of power had caused.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    I will agree with that.

    The cost of rebuilding infrastructure that good men have fought to build is a stupid policy and extremely wasteful.

    Obsolete infrastructure should be replaced a little at a time.

    What a rubbish, incredibly loaded poll.

    Do you agree stronger men are likely to be right wing?

    - Yes, a connection between aggression and politics makes sense

    - No, there's no link between your political mind and your physical strength
    Vote
    Why does "stronger" change to "aggressive" for the yes choice? The article title only mentions strength, yet for some reason the poll tries to switch it for aggression. Last time I checked, not all strong people are aggressive, and vice versa. To me, it seems like an attempt to make the right-wing look hostile and brutish (qualities which have negative connotations in modern politics).

    My first thoughts exactly. I think either the journalist or the scientists got the causality mixed up: Is it not more likely that 'conservative' people are more likely to do strength training then a hobby changing your political values?

    And linking 'conservatism' with aggression is just another weasel word argument. Just as when the mainstream media always use the term 'left wing' to describe sense of community and social responsibility, while 'right wing' means something (anything!) negative.

    Who wants to come out and profess right wing views after reading this article?

    How do those pesky lefties keep striking then if they are not workers?

    Actually read the bloody article instead of just the headline then. Anyway, to know much about the validity of a study you need to get the report and read through it yourself. That way you know their method and sometimes see flaws with it. Newspaper articles only tell half the story.
