The study itself doesn't really say anything like that, but you can't expect VD to actually read a scientific study, right? You'd actually have to spend time reading beyond the dailymail article.
Also, the entire study is based on evolutionary psychology, and should be considered "heresy" to fundies, so it's nice to see that VD hates feminists more than he loves god.

Just pissed off because we can't get laid, are we?

Oh sweetie, it's you again. Listen, and listen well: the standards of beauty you set aren't the same as mine. As a feminist -- because I respect myself, my fellow women, and the fundamental equality of all human beings -- I don't think that society's standard is necessarily correct nor a healthy thing to aspire to. I find women who respect themselves and who treat the world the way it needs to be treated -- with care and justice and a righteous eye -- are far more attractive to me than any skin-and-bones, balloon-breasted, self-hating famous woman.

Any woman who stands up for herself is a feminist, therefore, VD dislikes all women except those who are doormats. Men who prefer doormats to women with both minds and spines are a sad, pitiful lot, with inflated views of themselves and no dates.

Ugly women like Cate Blanchett, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, Emma Watson, Ingrid Bergman, Hedy Lamar.

No, no, no. It's "the more intelligent a woman is, the more likely she is to be a feminist". An intelligent woman doesn't have to rely on beauty alone.
Ever hear the saying "Beauty comes from within", Voxy? A person who is superficially beautiful, but cold and haughty in her mind, she's ugly to me.
What do you mean with "compete with other women in the traditional manner"? The man I loved and wanted more than everything in the world when I was 18, he wanted me too. Together we have "chased" the comfortable life, not really a career, but a job each with a decent salary, so we can live a life of quiet luxury and ease. We do have a family; I have three siblings, two parents, two nephews and two nieces, he has one brother, two parents, one nephew and one niece, and we have each other and our two cats.
Does that sound like a loser in the game of Life, whatever the hell that is?
And yes, I've been a feminists since I could spell the word. (A hint: when I was six years old, I could spell my teacher's name; Ragnhild. It's pronounced Rangnhealed, something like that.)

Please excuse me, I have to leave the room. The bullshit just smells too bad.
It's long been observed that the uglier a woman is, the more likely she is to be a feminist.
And why is it that that sentence is almost invariably uttered by fat, out-of-shape, ugly, oily-skinned, red-nosed, smelly, alcoholic, middle-aged male losers?
And why do those same men always think that busty teenage bikini girls find them attractive? (hint: the girls don't).

Allow me to revive a feminist chant from the early days, used to shout down obnoxious misogynists* like you.
"Go do the dishes!"
*Politely called "Male Chauvinist Pigs" in the day.
4/30/2012 1:14:28 PM
Ah, the dreaded "It's long been observed" gambit.
4/30/2012 1:20:01 PM
Vox Day considers appearance as more important than brains, wonders why feminists don't like his white middle-aged ass.
4/30/2012 1:45:07 PM
The fascist rules dictating female enslavement are considered the default for beautiful women only. The ones that managed to escape were ugly bitches anyway, probably all dykes, blah blah blah I'm going to marry an obedient super model with a childish mind.

everytime we play that game, I retire at Millionair Estate! Winning! :-p
4/30/2012 2:08:38 PM
I disagree, Vox, settling for you is the lowest point a woman can fall to in the game of life. That you yearn for women to come to you begging for the privilege to fulfill your own needs in life in contrast to them climbing over your sorry butt to achieve their own goals is somewhat telling.

Translation: Whaaaaaa... I can't find a woman who would put up with my bullshit... whaaaaaaa I wana have sex but not even my sister will do me! (*good thing I'm gay for Jesus!)
4/30/2012 4:11:22 PM
Rush, is that you?
And I second the call for a Sexist's Say the Darnedest Things.
4/30/2012 5:05:16 PM
I'm sure I've seen at least the first sentence somewhere before on the Internet.
4/30/2012 5:34:02 PM
Ok, let's go down the checklist. I have a kickass well paying job, a nice husband, lots of friends, various interests, and generally a pretty darn nice life. And while I am not a supermodel, I get complimented on my appearance and have even been told more than once that I am pretty. So I don't think ugly and loser really apply... And yet, I am a raging feminist.
4/30/2012 5:35:05 PM
Must be a post from the TFL.

I'll admit I was ugly when my PCOS was out of control. I'm MUCH better now that I've lost 20 lbs and my goddamn hirsutism. I freaking love fitting into my size 14s (I was all the way up to an 18 before diagnosis/treatment), can't wait until I'm back in my 12s. Heck I might even shoot for a 10. I like people looking me in the eye, not the mustache. ;P
Does this increase in attractiveness mean I'm any less of a feminist?
I'm sure Vox Day and others like him would rather have me be a fat, hairy, diabetic at risk of endometrial cancer than admit that being on birth control doesn't turn women into disobedient sluts.
And frankly my health is more important than their 'sensibilities'.

high school again?
Classy. Good to know both sides sink to this level.
4/30/2012 9:09:27 PM
Let me guess, VD.. not even the not so pretty girls would lay you? (
4/30/2012 9:15:54 PM
Day-o! pika, Daaaay-o!
Daylight come, and we wanna go home...
Sorry, a bit silly there.
I figure this is another homeschyool asshole, else he'd have actually spelled *Vox Dei* (Voice of God) correctly.
These chickenshits always love to assume the role of God's mouthpiece to feel important, as opposed to their real feeling of being impotent.
4/30/2012 10:03:34 PM
That isn't fair at all. People (because it isn't just cisgendered women) who choose to stay at home and raise children are just as important as people who choose to go and work, as long as it is THEIR CHOICE and they have the power to make those decisions. That's why things such as sex education, contraception and abortion are so important (and why fundies rail against them as much as they do feminism), because it gives people the power to choose.
Anyone who wants ALL women to be child carers against their will are scum, as is anyone who demonises those who choose otherwise, but belittling ALL child carers is just as bad.
You shouldn't reply to disparagements against a person's appearance with disparagements against their appearance. Prove that you're more intelligent than them.

Vox: "It's long been observed that the uglier a woman is, the more likely she is to be a feminist."
