Science is said to be the pursuit of objective truth. But since when does the modern regressive left want anything to do with the truth? After all we live in a world where just this past week liberal rag, Slate.Com unironically published this to their front page.
While that article attempts to somehow blame “science” for the now infamous google diversity manifesto. It also argues that science should only work towards goals that promote a liberal “positive” agenda. The bottom line is that liberals want to control the entire scientific field. Turning it into a puppet that is only ever allowed to publish work that promotes their own twisted social justice worldview, and more importantly never be allowed to release work that shows just how often that doesn’t mesh up with actual reality.
This battle between the left and a still for now free and objective scientific community played out again just this past week when a peer reviewed study from 2015 was released to the public online. Entitled, The relationship of female physical attractiveness to body fatness, this new study had the feminist contingent of the SJW brigade up in arms over its mere existence let alone the results. The results didn’t help matters though when it found that rather unsurprisingly, men tend to find skinnier and younger looking women to be more attractive.
For the purposes of the study men from 10 different countries around the world were asked to rank a series of different body shapes in order of attractiveness. The 10 countries were chosen in hopes of showing that at least on some level men’s tastes were influenced by local culture and societal norms rather then just a basic universally shared biological predisposition to a certain body type. Unfortunately for those body positive feminists out there the results were amazingly consistent across the board. From the UK, to Kenya, to China. Men tended to prefer thinner women unanimously. The bottom line of the results being, that as a woman’s BMI increased they become progressively less attractive to men. These results of course were soon declared by those on the left as unacceptable. Not because the research was bad, once again this is a peer reviewed paper published by a respected scientific journal, but because the study itself should according to feminists never have been allowed to occur in the first place.
Within 24 hours of the study being released online, a number of major liberal leaning sites had hit pieces up. Allure called it, “pointless and irresponsible”, Red Online called it “unhelpful” and stated that it did nothing but “will us with rage”, and The Independent stated just that it was “incredibly depressing”. The Allure piece even went on to suggest that as the study was built around a “toxic paradigm” it should be discarded. The bottom line here is that to SJW’s, any science that doesn’t support or benefit “the cause” is instantly invalid on a political basis. To these people reality is legitimately a thing to be discarded away if it doesn’t fit in with the more perfect imaginary world inside their head.
The negative reaction to this study is a terrifying meeting of the Anti-Scientific Left, and the SJW fueled fat feminist movement. Both these groups must be fought. As it’s important we hold onto our rights to both an independent objective science community, and to the right to enjoy the sight of a pretty girl. Both of which crazily enough are actually under threat in these modern times.
