    In all seriousness, marginalized groups tend to gravitate towards the political left. If you think about it, people who aren't considered conventionally attractive could qualify as a marginalized group, especially if they've received a lot of body-shaming in their lives. So-called "body positivity" certainly seems to have integrated itself as a major bloc of third-wave feminism. If left-wingers come across as "uglier" on average, it might have something to do with the left's traditional inclusiveness towards people of diverse backgrounds and appearances.

    I'd be more interested in seeing the strength of this correlation between perceived attractiveness and political opinions. Somehow I doubt the majority of those "Nice Guy" man-babies who become hardcore anti-feminists after failing to get dates are all conventionally handsome.

    Oh those guys are ugly as hell.

    And I have been to Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto when those far-right rallies have been going on. There’s some ugly fucking people at those things. The counter protesters usually aren’t ugly. Maybe the really far-left black bloc types are, but normal moderate people among the counter protesters, are usually not ugly.

    In Latin America, save for two countries (including my own), nationalism tends to be of the leftist, anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist variety, so the majority of the people from that side of the political fence tend to represent the hoi-polloi of the countries in question (hence, deviating from Eurocentric norms of beauty, i.e. ugly).

    What exactly is controversial about being anti-Trump? It's totally mainstream.

    Controversial views = anti-Islam, race & IQ, anti-third world immigration, that sort of stuff. You won't find a Hollywood celebrity who's hardcore right-wing, not because none of them hold such views deep down, but because it's not good for their careers to voice such opinions in public. It's just not good for business.

    Why do you think Ben Affleck was acting all hysteric, politically correct and shit, over at Bill Maher a few years ago?

    Ben Affleck, Sam Harris and Bill Maher Debate Radical Islam | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO):


    ^^ Because it's good for his career to be pro-Islamic, obviously, since he's thinking more about how his next movie will perform at the box office in Muslim countries and Muslims living in Western countries seeing his films, but most of all, he's worried about what the average politically correct Westerner will think, and if they'll boycott his next film or not.

    You think Bill Maher is a fanatic champion of political correctness because he really believes all that stuff, or because it's good for his career to be a leftist? Career-leftists is very much a real thing.

    Again: there's nothing controversial about being anti-Trump; it's totally mainstream and anti-Trump folks (women or otherwise), aren't speaking truth to power. Trump himself isn't that hardcore anyway, but he does symbolize anti-PC nowadays, so you using an example of women protesting against Trump, and that somehow being controversial, is inane. I was talking about career-girls in Hollywood (and yes, Ben Affleck is one).

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Okay. You call it "controversial" but that just seems to be double-speak to avoid saying racist. I agree that racist views are not mainstream.

    So as I understand it, you're saying that the attractive Hollywood types are honestly right-wingers but mouth progressive talking points for the sake of their career? Ben Affleck? I don't know. His mother was a Harvard professor and deeply liberal. But still, he and the Wahlberg family (i.e. Mark Wahlberg etc) are Boston area natives. Boston has a long history of being segregated and culturally racist. Mark Wahlberg actually has a police record from multiple instances of racially targeting and assaulting Black people when he was a teenager and before he became famous but Mark Wahlberg isn't associated with liberal/progressive politics.

    Bill Maher is annoying as hell and I usually don't watch his show but I did catch the Affleck episode.

    I still don't see the basis for the study. KKK and neo-Nazi rallies have some of the grossest looking people imaginable.

    The NSDAP stood for the national socialist German workers party not the American Republican plutocratic oligarchy party.

    I think Hollywood tends to be more liberal because they're creative types and creative people are more liberal.

    Hollywood is liberal because Hollywwod is run by Jews and most Jews are liberal :

    You don't bite the hand that feeds you so most actors and actresses tow the liberal party line. Producers/actors who go against liberalism are ostracized such as Mel Gibson.

    Yeah, I know on average Jews are more liberal but there's plenty of powerful non-Jews in Hollywood that are liberal. I don't think Jews completely run Hollywood, but they are influential for sure. If you research these actors and directors, a lot of them come from unconventional backgrounds, troubled upbringings, mental illness etc. Maybe to be a great actor you need to have gone through some shit. And leftist people on average are more emotional and sensitive, two qualities you'd need a lot of to be a good actor.
