Why JayMan is fat

The self-control consequences of political ideology
Evidence from three studies reveals a critical difference in self-control as a function of political ideology. Specifically, greater endorsement of political conservatism (versus liberalism) was associated with greater attention regulation and task persistence. Moreover, this relationship is shown to stem from varying beliefs in freewill; specifically, the association between political ideology and self-control is mediated by differences in the extent to which belief in freewill is endorsed, is independent of task performance or motivation, and is reversed when freewill is perceived to impede (rather than enhance) self-control. Collectively, these findings offer insight into the self-control consequences of political ideology by detailing conditions under which conservatives and liberals are better suited to engage in self-control and outlining the role of freewill beliefs in determining these conditions.
Why conservatives might be better at dieting than liberals
"Conservatives tend to believe they had a greater control over their outcomes, and that was predicting how they did on the test," said Joshua Clarkson, a consumer psychologist at the University of Cincinnati and the lead author of the paper.

Classy.

To spell out for you why this is amusing, two of JayMan's biggest hobbyhorses are:

(1) he can't be blamed for his weight, because genes (2) freewill doesn't exist

Don't worry, his feelings are not going to be hurt.

dear God what a retarded cunt.

psychology is 100% bullshit and RETARDED.

just like AMERICAN conservatives.

you do grasp...don't you fucktard?...that "conservative" is defined by the time and place. a "conservative" in the PRC or n korea is quite unlike a self-identfying" one in contemporary mercastan. the "conservatives" in ancient sparta wanted to keep the tradition of pederasty. the mercastani "conservative" is unique in his level of vulgarity and stupidity...proleness.

AND THE PSYCHOLOGISTS AND YOU AND CONSERVATIVES GENERALLY MAKE THE MISTAKE OF BELIEVING THAT THEY'RE IS ANY SUCH THING AS AN INDIVUDAL INDEPENDENT, LIVING OUTSIDE A PARTICULAR SOCIETY AT A PARTICULAR PLACE AND TIME.

IT'S CALLED THE INDIVIDUALIST IDEOLOGY.

AND IT'S 100% PURE SATANISM.

Independence? That's middle class blasphemy.

Mugabe,

Does JayMan live in ancient Sparta or does JayMan live and identify as a "liberal" in present-day America?

as i thought.

you say "genes this" and "genes that", but you have NOT A SINGLE GENE in mind or even a constellation of genes.

FUCKTARD!

AND DOUCHECUNT FUCKTARD.

SELF-IDENTIFYING "CONSERVATIVES" ARE

MUCH

MUCH

MUCH

MORE LIKELY TO BE FAT.

IT WOULD BE FUNNY, IF IT WEREN'T SO SAD.

AMERICAN "CONSERVATIVE" = WHITE TRASH ASHAMED OF HIS TRASHINESS.

and...

so disappointing.

no one's listening to y'all in the "hbd-sphere", because you're all...

jusss plain DUMB.

when the messenger is dumb, his message is dismissed.

perhaps unfairly.

but when the messenger is dumb, he can't even express his message in a non-derisory way.

fuck the slave girl your ancestors didn't have "conservative".

You can give Jayman some credit- the fat acceptance movement has gained remarkable traction in the past several years, which, with it's fixation on it being genetic, overlaps remarkably with HBD yet is reluctant to extend it to things like race differences in obesity (of which there are marked differences) and other physical traits, and ultimately with many of the same arguments employed in it's favor the kind you'll see over general HBD, so he's atleast being consistent with the social justice left. Though despite his insistence he really is a liberal, they'll probably always think he's crazy and riddled with self-hatred, and he is after all basically autistic.
