In another riveting segment on Fox and Friends, two men debate whether a jury will convict a woman based on her looks. Dr. Keith Ablow feels a female jury would be more likely to give Arias the death penalty because male jurors might find her attractive and would be reluctant to sentence her to die.

The psychiatrist said that there were even some members of the jury who fantasized about being with her. The blonde du jour on the couch said, "That's sick." Meanwhile, she claimed she was the lucky girl sitting between two such respected men. A woman should be there to be objectified, that's why Fox keeps a blonde sandwiched between two men every morning.

Legal Analyst Arthur Aidala agrees. He feels that the jury was comprised of mostly men, if there was a fatherly or big brotherly connection, the jurors would likely not give her the death penalty.

Ablow said

"She is not, objectively speaking, too pretty to die...there are some members of those jurors who fantasized about being with her... You don't want to go where the money is which is looking at her in a sexual way."

Aidala said,

I'm not going to go that far.

Dr. Keith thought it was crazy that Arthur would avoid any sexual connection with the jurors. He said to Aidala, "What's wrong with you?" Aidala said he would eschew the sexual connection,

I'm going to go with the human connection.

The looks of a woman plays a huge part in the mind of the jury they've concluded. If we're talking about a female murderer, it's bound to happen that on Fox News, one of the "experts" will bring up the sexual connection. We all know that's really the only way to think about a woman.
