To those who ask: Why can't liberals and conservatives get along and talk to each other?–my answer has always been: Because liberals don't want to get along and talk.

Liberals don't want conversations. They want purges.

And now a poll comes along and confirms exactly that. The Hill reports:

Democratic voters are almost three times as likely to have "blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone on social media" after Donald Trump's victory, according to a study released Monday.

The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI ) found 24 percent of Democrats distanced themselves from people on social media because of a political postings. Nine percent of both Republicans and independents reported doing the same to those in social media circles.

Additionally, 28 percent of liberals surveyed said they removed someone from their social media circle because of the content that person posted, compared with 8 percent of conservatives.

But what's really fascinating about the survey was its gender breakdown: It turns out that Dem women cut off their social media friends who disagree with their liberal politics far more frequently than Dem men:

Women were "twice as likely as men to report removing people from their online social circle because of the political views they expressed online," 18 percent to 9 percent, according to the study conducted by Daniel Cox and Robert P. Jones.

Three in 10 Democratic women said they removed someone from a social media platform due to a political opinion shared. This compares to just 14 percent of Democratic men doing the same.

In other words, women are cliquish, catty, and most significantly, conformists to a degree you just don't see in the male sex. It's politically incorrect to point this out, of course, but it's a phenomenon that''s been repeatedly verified by social-science studies.

Interestingly, it seems that Republican women are not only far less prone to ostracizing their sisters who disagree with them than Democratic women–but they're also slightly less likely to ostracize than Republican men:

Republican men and women were about equal on this front, with 10 percent of GOP men saying they blocked, unfollowed, or unfriended someone on social media because of political postings and 8 percent of Republican women following suit.

PJ Media resident psychologist Helen Smith offers a reason why GOP women seem less prone to the "Mean Girls" syndrome:

[A] Republican woman is generally someone more clearly likely to buck the trend and herd mentality, as the majority of women are Democrats. Maybe right-leaning women are more autonomous and don't need a crowd of people supporting and propping them up constantly.

In the world of women, especially liberal women. it's always high school.
