Btw
(Medical Xpress)óMen find women with whom
they share certain facial features more attractive.
This is the conclusion of a study carried out by a
French team from the Institut des Sciences de
l'Evolution de Montpellier (Isem, CNRS). The
scientists focused on certain facial characteristics
such as eye and hair color, lip and eyebrow
thickness and the presence or absence of a chin
dimple. However, unlike most previous studies,
they compared the features of the men surveyed
with those of the women that they considered
attractive. This work, published on 21 November in
the journal PLoS One, reinforces the theory of
homogamy, whereby individuals seek a sexual
partner that looks like them - extending it here to
genetic traits.

Hey just read the article I commented on what the person said which was that it was the voice that was outing them. Well they are outed long before they open their mouth, it's all over their face, so get off my back because thats the facts Jack !!!

Oh and your study is junk science and I don't very highly it applies to American men as evident by how many transgender women are beaten and murdered each year.

Pardon me, Ms. Parker, but did you drink a big glass of Hateraid before you posted? I mean, you're being a bit harsh and insulting, don't you think? I'm sure you and your life are perfect, but that's not exactly a license to put others down, is it? Have you ever been insulted, more specifically, for something you couldn't help? And if so, how did it make you feel? Forgive me, I'm just curious about what motivates a person to insult others in this way?

Angel Diva First in order for my comment to be an insult they must be spoken to the person their directed at and that hasn't happened Second I was only commenting exactly on what the person said and making my own personnel observation concerning their voice comment. If you read the article this person comes across as putting high importance on passing in society, So what said is accurate their strong male face gives them away long before they open their mouth and that's a fact, I wasn't mean or rude just real !

Soooo...an insult isn't really an insult if the person it's about doesn't hear it? Apologies, I'm struggling to see how that works. Also, it's obvious you completely missed the point. The insult is not always WHAT is said, but HOW it is said. A concept known to civilized people as "Tact". And not to sound pushy, but you should invest in some.

Brandy Parker feels entitled to make that comment because she's trans. Perhaps, Brandy, before you start throwing down other transwomen you should look at your own profile picture and worry about your own chin, jaw, and forehead before you throw out 'real' observations about women less fortunate than you.

And to be honest she isn't that much less fortunate than you.
