We need more sons

The Herald highlights a story from the Observer:

Fathers who have daughters will shift their political views left while those who have sons will become more right-wing, a British study has found.

No wonder China is becoming more free gradually!

Researchers from the Warwick and York Universities found that the more daughters there were in a household, the more likely their father was to vote Labour or the centre-left Liberal Democrat.

In an unpublished paper that has been submitted to an economics journal, Professor Andrew Oswald and Dr Nattavudh Powdthavee said: “This paper provides evidence that daughters make people more left-wing, while having sons, by contrast, makes them more right-wing.”

Fascinating. So maybe this eugenics stuff is worth considering 🙂
