Trump Supporters’ Wives Are Possibly Sleeping Around on Them

  • 7

This is not a joke or anything; it’s a real study done by academics affiliated with New York University. They think President Trump uses “masculine” language that he disproportionately attracts the support of men who are very insecure in their masculinity.



The researchers selected a series of search topics that may be especially common among men concerned about living up to the ideals of manhood. The topics included “erectile dysfunction,” “hair loss,” “how to get girls,” “penis enlargement,” “penis size,” “steroids,” “testosterone” and “Viagra.”


Through a survey to a sample of 300 men on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk platform, the researchers found that men who had high “masculine gender-role discrepancy stress” (which meant they were not as manly as their male friends) were significantly more interested in these topics.


Moreover, they also found that support for Trump in the 2016 election was higher in areas that had more searches for topics like “erectile dysfunction.” The researchers pointed out that the relationship persisted after accounting for demographic attributes in media markets.



“In contrast, fragile masculinity was not associated with support for Mitt Romney in 2012 or support for John McCain in 2008 – suggesting that the correlation of fragile masculinity and voting in presidential elections was distinctively stronger in 2016.” Quoted from the article.


Okay, now, I don’t want to discuss whether this is a “meaningful” study, or how Trump uses “masculine” language; the meaning of this study to me is that it reminds me of how many men out there are feeling insecure of masculinity.


Masculinity refers to qualities or attributes regarded as characteristic of men. To put it in another way, being masculine means being manly.


Men who feel insecure in their masculinity struggle in their work and family relationships. They are more emotionally reactive, so people don’t trust them to be stable. Wife of an insecure man may be resentful of her weak husband and may want to end the relationship.



Insecure men tend to be violent due to the lack of self-confidence. They may consistently think of what is “manly” and what is not in their daily lives.


However, their worries are unnecessary. Just think in this way: there’s no definition of “traditional man” or “manly,” so there is no need to even think of them.


If you feel insecure in your masculinity, first ask yourself about whether there is a universally admitted definition of masculinity. No? That means everyone is free to live their own lives in their own ways.


If this cannot convince you, try to exercise more and make yourself bigger and stronger. Tell yourself you will be more attractive in that way, and you can feel better.


Let me just say something at last. I'm not sure why these academics carry out such a survey just to prove the connection between President Trump and the features of certain people. Maybe they are just boring. Or maybe the study contains some meanings that I can't understand. Anyway, what I want to talk about is just over coming the insecurity of masculinity. Psychology is what concerns me.

What a load of cr*p. Married 45 years to a passionate Italian man. What he lacks in emotional maturity is made up in bed where he is tender,unselfish ,giving and quite frankly,superb.

Of course any good man questions his masculinity as any good woman questions her femininity. We all are human complete with frailties.
So you are a female Trump supporter?
oh my word, people like YOU are whats wrong with humankind, no part of what she(?) said even hinted at anything political you F-ing liberal twit.
I agree, most people don't grasp the passion (and I don't mean just sexual) of Latin and/or Italian men, it's a powerful/wonderful thing to experience, wish American men could get a clue but I have come to believe that its something that is instilled in them culturally so...?
Second generation Italian Americans can exhibit the same positive passions depending on a very strong family structure which is sadly, sometimes restrictive.
But I for one, can attest to all Italian( and half Italian ) boys love their mothers.
I agree
does anyone have anymore digs to throw at Mr Trump or Melania.  Oh go ahead and trash her dog some more.  I think is shameful.
MAGA/KAGA Katy! these sniveling little vermin cant resist jumping at any opportunity to be vile, petty,& whining. But good thing they are so weak, they will be the first to perish in any serious situation. I just wish it wasn't so difficult to find intelligent and high quality journalism, these media people don't even seem to be aware of their awful grammar, poor punctuation and lack of congruent flowing sentences. There used to be spell checkers and fact checkers consulted before articles were released, now it just seems they throw out whatever sloppy opinion piece some freshman wannabe "journalist" intern tosses their way just to produce content and fill up print space. But I will admit that there appears to be someone who is at least good at producing headlines and click bait-(what a sad waste of a paycheck) to emotionally draw in the weak minded or bored/idle minds- yes I'm admitting I clicked it too,-out of shear boredom today, time to get back to work...
funny!  can't believe how stupid people are.
President Trump uses “masculine” language that disproportionately frightens New York Academics, men who have always been very insecure in their masculinity. This is not a joke or anything; it’s NOT a real study done by academics affiliated with New York University and therefore carries a much higher weight of credibility.
Love Trump and
You people tragically are suffering from extreme cases of "Trump Derangement Syndrome," a recognizable malady. I can only define it by illustration. ( This is from Oregon and  is  a true story. )  A man's prize hunting dog,  for reasons unknown , breaks it's tether, and permanently ESCAPES. The poor distraught  dog  owner, a democrat, can ONLY interpret this as his animal's becoming so overly-stressed from the environment created by President Donald Trump, that the DOG COULD NO LONGER COPE AND RAN OFF TO IT'S DEMISE LIKE A LEMMING. C.H.
Maybe you could correlate this in some strange hypothetical way but when it comes down to why people, especially white males is that they are the only unprotected class of people in the USA. This is a consistent problem that has turned systemic. There are a lot of protected classes of people of color that are not satisfied with equal rights. They keep pushing and pushing when they have more rights than any class. I was always for equal rights for everyone, but this is not equal. Equal is 50/50. I am white and as long as it is not feasible for me and my wife to leave the country I will stand my ground because we refuse to be dominated. If Obama did not spread racism throughout the country we would not even be talking about Trump.
Stop being racist there are enough in the world already black people were Lynched in your grandparents time and only people that had rights were white how do you think they felt back then, the same way you re feeling right now welcome to this cruel world
The second you invoke "Trump" whatever, the article lost all credibility.
Just because. I support President Trump's policy and I don't have problems with male confident Your suey is a big joke Just a cheap shot a President Trump why don't you a suey on Bidders last of knowing where he at and what he doing
