Really, CNN? No, this is not some extension of an SNL Weekend Report segment. S.E. Cupp and Krystal Ball really want to know what went into the Cable News Network’s decision to release a story entitled “Do Hormones Drive Women’s Votes?” The article has since been pulled from their website because “it was determined that some elements of the story did not meet the editorial standards of CNN.” But more curious than its recent disappearance from the Internet are the findings that it discussed.
The article cited a new study by “scientists” who determined that a woman’s relationship status and ovulation patterns can influence how they vote. For example, the researchers found “that women at their most fertile times of the month were less likely to be religious if they were in committed relationships.” At this point in the election, if people are still questioning whether females vote with “their parts or their hearts,” it seems women have bigger problems than deciding who they want in the White House.
