Wow, leftist academics pathologizing right wingers, I'm so shocked, that'never happened before! (Social Dominance Orientation, Right-Wing Authoritarianism, Freudian psycho-analysis). The genius writing the article torpedoes his own point though;

​

>My co-author, Justin Lehmiller, recently published his new book, Tell Me What You Want,  examining the sexual fantasies of 4000 people. The entire book is a fascinating read, but interestingly, Justin found that Republicans fantasized much more about infidelity, cuckolding, and men with very large genitals, compared to Democrats, who were more likely to fantasize about bondage and discipline behaviors or romantic intimacy (this last might be because of gender differences, with more females affiliated with left politics, and these types of fantasies more common in females.).

​

Of course he doesn't apply the exact same logic he does to Democrats to Republicans; if fantasies shown to be more common in Democrats are actually just due to more women being Democrats, then fantasies shown to be more common in Republicans are actually just due to more men being Republicans. (and obviously cuckolding is so much more common in men that the term is literally a gendered one).

​

Either the author is a moron or a disingenuous shill. Oh wait...

David J. Ley, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and the author of Insatiable Wives, Women Who Stray and The Men Who Love Them.

​

Lol, sounds like he's the one with cuckolding fantasies.

​

The real point here is that men are more right wing than women, and masculine men are more right wing than effeminate men (which follows from the first point), and scientific studies do indeed show that;

​

>The new findings build on previous research, he adds, that suggests that muscular men are more likely to support militarism and war. In the past, researchers discovered a significant correlation between men who were physically formidable and their belief that some social groups should dominate other social groups.

I think these would help you understand the key arguments and points made about whiteness:

  • Making Whiteness: The Culture of Segregation in the South, 1890-1940

  • Whiteness of a Different Color: European Immigrants and the Alchemy of Race

  • How the Irish Became White

    Political Sociology articles that might interest you:

  • Pettigrew, Thomas (1998). Reactions Toward the New Minorities of Western Europe. Annual Review of Sociology. 24(1) : 77-103.

  • Banks, Antoine J, and Nicholas A Valentino. 2012. “Emotional Substrates of White Racial Attitudes.” American Journal of Political Science 56(2): 286–297

  • Hutchings, L. Vincent and Valentino, Nicholas, A. (2004). The centrality of race in American politics. Annual Review of Political Science. 7(1): 383-408.


    I'm not expecting you to go away and read all this, but the books and articles can be found online (look up libgen and scihub if you need free access), so there's nothing to stop you skimming them or reading scholarly reviews. There's more where that came from so let me know if you have anything in particular you'd like to read about.

This is an interesting read: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Refusal-Work-Theory-Practice-Resistance/dp/1783601175

Very little to do with communism, much more about post-capitalist freedom, autonomy and the need for genuine community. Personally I still find Labour's attachment to the protestant work ethic somewhat frustrating. I'm glad they've swung left, but they're only just beginning to grapple with ideas about post-work economies. Good they're looking at basic income though.

Toddlers on up have the same feelings. They just learn to hide it. Described in this book, amongst other places.
