Proof that Republicans have itty-bitty johnsons

Well, not exactly, but close enough:

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Threaten a man's masculinity and he will assume more macho attitudes, according to a study by a Cornell University researcher.

"I found that if you made men more insecure about their masculinity, they displayed more homophobic attitudes, tended to support the Iraq War more and would be more willing to purchase an SUV over another type of vehicle," said Robb Willer, a sociology doctoral candidate at Cornell. Willer is presenting his findings Aug. 15 at the American Sociological Association's 100th annual meeting in Philadelphia.

"Masculine overcompensation is the idea that men who are insecure about their masculinity will behave in an extremely masculine way as compensation. I wanted to test this idea and also explore whether overcompensation could help explain some attitudes like support for war and animosity to homosexuals," Willer said.

I always knew that conservatives were compensating for something. Silly Republicans, dicks are for Democrats.

    By the way, that study is just more wishful liberal thinking:

    "If you don't agree with us, you are somehow defective".

    I am going back to my pickup truck, my 400HP sports car, my SUV (my wife's), and my guns, now.
