The trouble all started when we let them vote...

Fathers of daughters become more left-wing, academics claim - Telegraph

Professor Oswald said that having daughters made men "gradually shift their political stance and become more sympathetic to the 'female' desire for a ... larger amount for the public good".
"They become more Left-wing. Similarly, a mother with sons becomes sympathetic to the 'male' case for lower taxes and a smaller supply of public goods," he said.

... 67 per cent of parents with three sons and no daughters voted for Labour or the Liberal Democrats.
This rose to 77 per cent in households with three daughters and no sons. A similar pattern was found among families with two and four children.

When I was younger I was siring sons, now it is daughters, I must be getting soft in my old age.

subtitle should be "Researcher Has Leg Pulled"

Can't resist it-"Kids drive you mad, and girls are worst!"

I can't work the headline out - is it saying that we were better off when we didn't let the 'wimmin' vote or what?

Two daughters and counting...I'm so right wing I am going around in tight right turns....surely some mistake?

Two daughters. Used to be Democrat (US). Switched to Repukelican last year so as to not have to choose between Hillary & Barrack. Continuing to sprint to the right. The girls better crank up those hormones....

Hmm, I tend to try to teach my kids which way to vote, rather than pick up their naive idealism. Doesn't work, but strikes me as the right way around.
