Someone asked me the other day if I had any preference in women–especially whether I prefer liberal VS conservative women. Though generally I’m right of center on several issues I have to admit I cannot stand conservative women, In fact, creepy women like Michelle Malkin or Ann Coulter, et al (especially those in the Phyllis Schafley vein) leave me downright drained of libido.

“…Women: do you have a man? If you do, better beware. Chances are that some lone female has her eye on him. A new study provides evidence for what many have long suspected: that single women are much keener on pursuing a man who’s already taken than a singleton. “The single women really, really liked the guy when he was taken,” says Melissa Burkley of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, who conducted the “mate-poaching” study with her colleague Jessica Parker…” Article here in “New Scientist.”

“…For the female half of the population, it may bring a satisfied smile. Scientists have found that evolution is driving women to become ever more beautiful, while men remain as aesthetically unappealing as their caveman ancestors. The researchers have found beautiful women have more children than their plainer counterparts and that a higher proportion of those children are female. Those daughters, once adult, also tend to be attractive and so repeat the pattern. Over generations, the scientists argue, this has led to women becoming steadily more aesthetically pleasing, a “beauty race” that is still on. The findings have emerged from a series of studies of physical attractiveness and its links to reproductive success in humans…” Article here.
Evolution of the sexes: Is this what the future holds–for every woman a grotesquely ugly male? Hopefully at least guys of the future will still have beer and chips–and the TV clicker.
Related: Now this…not only are women becoming more beautiful (as men are increasingly being reduced to sheer ugliness) they are better managers too.
Research revealed in Psychological Science “found that women formed a negative view of their peers much quicker than men did…” In other words, women are so full of venom and jealousy they will give no quarter of relief to anyone who disagrees with them, especially other women. In other other words, if women were toasters bodies wouuld be flying out hitting the ceiling all day long. Read more.
Update: here’s a recent example.

Girls just wanna have fun: Nazi party girls after a day’s work
…the participation of women in the crimes of the Nazis has been blended out of the collective conscious of the Germans for a long time,” she [Kathrin Kompisch] wrote in her book, Female Perpetrators: Women under National Socialism. Many women were in fact used as assistants to the doctors who sterilised and murdered disabled people and as guards in the concentration camps – like the character played by Kate Winslet in her Oscar nominated role in the film The Reader. “The history of National Socialism has long been reduced to one that blamed men for everything,” said Ms Kompisch. “This was and is the popular picture.” The true picture was very different. “Women typed the statistics of the murdered victims of the SS Action Squads in the east, operated the radios which called up for more bullets, were invariably the secretaries – and sometimes much more – in all the Gestapo posts,” she said. “And at the end of the war they tried to diminish their responsibility by saying they were just cogs in the all-male machine which gave the orders… Many women were in fact used as assistants to the doctors who sterilised and murdered disabled people and as guards in the concentration camps… Read rest of article here.

The London Times lists the 20 most controversial women in history. Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin are among them. Well I’ve met these women in history reading and have my own take on them, so here we go–a short rundown: 1 Messalina (licentious wife of stuttering Emperor Claudius, early first century), 2 Boudicca (female warrior, sort of like Xena but not so much leather and no Gabrielle sidekick-mid first century), 3 Joan of Arc (hot religious fanatic, she killed for god, country and insanity–seemed to relish being burned at the stake: “Hold the cross high so I may see it through the flames!”), 4 Lucrezia Borgia (a girl with a bad reputation, like Lohan after her, attended decadent parties–and to think her father was a Pope; no wonder Buffalo Bill named his shootin’ rifle after her), 5 Elizabeth (queen who used only her first name, like Madonna or Cher), 6 Mary (known as Bloody Mary to her friends–I mean enemies–another queen with first name ego), 7 Marie Antoninette (the Spears-Lohan of her generation–eighteenth century, let them eat cake–finally beheaded by creepy pre-Marxist sadists), 8 Catherine the Great (great in bed that is, had her maids first test potential lovers, then report back with the details), 9 Queen Ranavalona (nicknamed the Bloody Mary of Madagascar–one sick bimbo, “had Christians trussed up like chickens and repeatedly thrown off cliffs or placed in pits which slowly filled with boiling water ” –real nice lady–and I use the word “lady” very loosely), 10 Tsaritsa Alexandra (hung out with that wild bearded Rasputin–enough said), 11 Jiang Qing (the blushing gang-of-four cultural revolutionary wife of brutal mass killer and Humpty-Dumpty lookalike Chairman Mao–yeas later she had the decency to hang herself in a bathroom), 12 Indira Gandhi (great personal style, also authortarian excess, thought to be a nasty political cheater like all other politicians in the world), 13 Eva Peron (Argentine politician called Evita, played by Madonna in movie, and now entered into cult status), 14 Maggie Thatcher (a woman hated by the left, once invaded a windswept nearly deserted useless island to show that Britain was still mighty, and now like all politicians in or out of office suffering from bouts of dementia–often compared to Ronald Reagan but without the Brylcream), 15 Winnie Mandela (brutal wife of terrorist Nelson), 16 Benazir Bhutto (lovely Pakistani politician who covered her luxuriously flowing gorgeous dark hair with a damned headscarf), 17 Imelda Marcos (leading figure of the shoe power movement in the Philippines), 18 Carla Bruni (French president Sarkozy’s wife…her conquests include Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton, among many others of course–not that there’s anything wrong with that). Finally we get to the crux of the list: 19 Hillary Clinton (refused to kick Bill out after he had affair with that other woman, the one he didn’t have sex with because it really wasn’t sex–now there was her chance to be president), and finally 20 Sarah Palin (self-described pitbull with lipstick, beautiful bespectacled Alaskan mother, governor and VP candidate–hunts and kills her own mooseburgers).
NOTE: If controversy is the keyword than this list neglects many names. Among the ancients what about Cleopatra? What about Florence Nightingale, who uprooted the entire Brit army medical establishment? Then there’s Charlotte Corday, who dutifully murdered French revolutionary and advocate of the Reign of Terror, Jean-Paul Marat as he steeped in his bath and then bravely went to the guillotine for it. It’s been observed that she had been so calm and collected before dying that she even asked about the deadly contraption’s construction. “I have killed one man to save a hundred thousand,” she said (hey, I really like this woman). And what of Victoria Woodhull, who ran for President of the United States in 1872? Her platform? Free love. I also can’t understand why Palin and Clinton are on the list of “controversial” women. What’s controversial about them exactly–that one wears pants suits and the other hunts and fishes? …Oh, yeah, and what about Pope Joan?
One more example. Controversy cuts three ways–the good, the bad, and the ugly. Here’s another woman not on the list above who was certainly controversial: Marie Stopes , described as a feminist”…best remembered for opening the first family planning clinic in Britain in 1921. But she is also a controversial figure who was accused of being racist and anti-Semitic and advocated eugenics – even disapproving of her own son’s choice of wife because she was short-sighted and wore glasses. She also once sent a loving letter and book of her poems to Adolf Hitler…” Curiously, she held very similar views to American Susan B. Anthony as far a eugenics were concerned.
