If only we aren't pressured into these ideas of beauty. If only we didn't have the constant fear of not being good enough, always trying to buy the right products and clothing, working out and spending soooooo much money (the girl tax) on everything to fit that standard of beauty. If only someone had just told me from the start to not worry about it and just be the beautiful girl that you are. If only.....

Wouldnt that be nice?

I don't. In fact the general consensus from the people i know is just the opposite. But the some aging women i know say "god, i wish i had her ass" and stuff like that.
I don’t know of many guys that like stretched out faces. But, the boob issue fits into my point. Many women go overboard with boob jobs and that is a turnoff. A modest boob job skillfully done can be pretty appetizing. I am not disagreeing with Lyzza in principle. We just differ as to degree.

@Lyzza

Would you please 'wake-up', open your eyes and see that this is not a "gendered" issue--i.e. men face similar expectations/ideals through media, advertisement, ect. It is trivially obvious. For instance, in comic books & the corresponding movies, the women are hyper-feminine and the men are hyper-masculine. Actually, it is not at all clear how much of an issue this even is--as there are some strength qualities in such; hence, why they are 'superheroes'/'demi-gods'

Honestly, women (like you) are encouraged to be so conceded, narrow-minded, & narcissistic in our time, particularly due to neo-feminism.

Do you feel ashamed about that, at all?

That has always been human nature and will always be. Our response to that human nature is the only thing that I am questioning. P.S.: If you don’t mind my saying, your avatar is hot.

@Lyzza

Comic books is one example, men are obviously 'objectified' in media, advertisements, Hollywood, ect. ect, just as women are--which, women (like you) conveniently overlook. Hence, it is not a 'gendered' issue. You should be ashamed that your 'empathy' only extends to half the population while you demonize the other half.

Also, it is not at all clear that general beauty standards are "unrealistic" for those that fall into the healthy range or above (i.e. upwards of 80% of the population).

Note, studies have been performed which reveal women rate 80% of male faces as "below average". Then, it would seem, women are the majority perpetrators of "unrealistic beauty standards" for which they are foisting onto males. Again, not a unidirectional 'crime'

Thoughts?
Thanks from Sabcat
