Young Conservatives on Facebook

This is so sad. Somebody needs to tell them how redick they look. The GOP is never going to crawl out from the hole they dug for themselves. I could not even watch this whole thing that’s how bad it is. You decide for yourself.

Male Or Female? Coloring Provides Gender Cues

Our brain is wired to identify gender based on facial cues and coloring, according to a new study published in the Journal of Vision. Psychology Professor Frédéric Gosselin and his Université de Montréal team found the luminescence of the eyebrow and mouth region is vital in rapid gender discrimination.
“As teenagers, dimorphism (systematic difference between sexes) increases in the nose, chin, mouth, jaw, eyes and general shape of faces,” says Nicolas Dupuis-Roy, lead author of the study. “Yet we aren’t conscious of how our brain recognizes those differences.”

To discover those reference points, Dupuis-Roy and colleagues showed photos of 300 Caucasian faces to some 30 participants. Subjects were asked to identify gender based on images where parts of faces were concealed using a technology called Bubbles.

The investigation found that eyes and mouths, specifically their subtle shading or luminance, are paramount in identifying gender. Unlike previous studies, which found the gap between the eyelid and eyebrow as essential in gender ID, this investigation found the shades of reds and greens around mouths and eyes led to faster gender discrimination.

“Studies have shown that an androgynous face is considered male if the skin complexion is redder, and considered female if the complexion is greener,” says Dupuis-Roy. “However, it is the opposite for the mouth. A woman’s mouth is usually redder. Our brain interprets this characteristic as female.”
