    56% (!!) of liberal white women age 18-29 have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. That’s more than twice (!!) the rate of their conservative counterparts.

    Answers why some Leftism seems quite similar to a mental disorder.

    That's a huge difference. A majority of young white leftist women have been diagnosed with a mental disorder, that's remarkable. And even among the males of that group, still twice conservatives.

    Compare mid-30's male conservatives with their left wing counterparts, 3.5 times.
    65+ males, again, leftists more than triple.

    Please discuss why huge numbers of young, white, leftist 'women having clinical mental health issues, and why the vast disparity between those women and their young, white, conservative counterparts?'

    Your source is “not the bee”??? Tad biased maybe?

    okay so why?

    Maybe it is because a large proportion of women who vote Democrat are able to afford more and better health care?

    I stopped trying to shame them into using legitimate sources long ago — it’s is an interesting perspective though.

    They have proven the best way to cause cases to go down is to simply not test so maybe red states having some of the life expectancy, less quality of healthcare and higher infant mortality is just them trying to burry their head so they can post topics like this.

    Can’t have a health issue if you don’t know about it!

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. I would even argue that left leaning people would be more likely to visit a shrink over a right leaning person to begin with.

    For the people who deny what we all know to be obvious and whose only defense is to attack the source.

    From Psychology Today

    [​IMG]

    Personality Traits, Mental Illness, and Ideology
    Higher rates of mental illness have been found on the far left.

    Previous research in political psychology has suggested that people with conservative political attitudes tend to have better physical health than their liberal counterparts (Chan, 2019) (which I discussed in more detail in a previous post). A more recent study (Kirkegaard, 2020) found that political ideology may also be relevant to mental health, as people who are more liberal, especially those identifying as “extremely liberal,” are more likely to have mental health problems.

    Perhaps the “right” are just less inclined to admit to mental illness?

    Perhaps you have some research backing up your claim, perhaps.

    The original Pew report, apparently from 2020, was not found by this poor old country mouse after searching the site with a number of key words and combinations of them. The report is, unless someone can pin it down, a possible example of false news.

    Regards, stay safe 'n well.

    Is that because the democratic party supports universal healthcare to get these woman the help they need, while the right has rejected them due to the issues they have to deal with?

    Is that your claim?

    So when the Pew Research Center informs the public about the issues through public opinion polling and demographic research on gender equality, they are a reputable resource but anything that comes to light that doesn't favor the left becomes a illegitimate resource.

    Sounds more like they got this poll right.

    Or just maybe its a Pew Research poll that was posted by the Bee.
    When did you think the Bee runs research polls?

    So the new excuse would be only the left can afford healthcare? That makes more sense to you?

    No, it just means they support the party that is in their best interest.

    So how is universal healthcare available to more Democrats than Republicans again?

    They vote democrat because they support it, We don't have universal healthcare yet. Why would they vote for the party opposed to implementing it?

    It was a rhetorical question, the answer is obvious, and the stats reflect the physics of the situation.
