    Everybody

    Not just us girls are judged too much by looks. I think we're judged by looks MORE than guys, but they're judged by looks just as well. An unclassy girl is the same as a douchebag guy. They both think looks are more important than anything. Now, EVERYBODY cares what they look...

    It's Only Natural

    It's the nature of the beast. Let's say a man is interested in meeting a woman who could potentially be his wife. The man is somewhat young, fit, and moderately successful. In other words, average. Is he going to go for the sweet, cute girl or the raunchy hoochie or the obese...

    Beauty In The Bones

    It does get me down how thin girls are expected to be. due to the media and expectations from society what I have gathered is that a girl has to be thin, have massive boobs, have great legs, have a pretty face, nice hair, tiny waist etc etc. I have also observed that girls have...

    Show Me Love

    If you cover yourself up, you must be a prude. If you show shoulders, stomach, thighs, cleavage, arms, collar bones, hair, makeup, etc., you must be easy. If you are a blonde, you can't be intelligent. If you are a redhead, you must have a vicious temper. If you dye your hair...

    Women Being Judged

    I think that a lot of women underestimate themselves. Everyone has something beautiful about them no matter how they look. I hate those guys that will only date girls that are perfectly thin, and have long blonde hair. It shouldnt be like that. I do think we have a right to make...

    The Media Is to Blame

    What really makes me incredibly angry is when a magazine or a tabloid talk show starts talking about celebrities who don't weigh 97 pounds, saying how they're fat and that they should lose weight.  For example, last year when Brittany Spears performed on the MTV Music Awards...

    I Think Women Are Judged On Looks Too Much

    I totally agree. I wish with all my heart that society would stop making such comparisons. We can't all be Marilyn Monroe's, its what's on the heart of a person that counts whether it be female or male. I look at my loving partner Avice, and see the most beautiful woman in the...

    Period. I think it's been this way

    since the beginning of time. But I've come to learn recently not all men want a Barbie doll woman. Curves are in baby! I'm not blonde, I don't have fake boobs and I've got hips for days lol. I could stand to tone, but I am not fat. I'm just well not perfect :) But I'm happy.

    Appearance.

    On a Scale of 1 to 10

    Its not just women that are judged on looks too much...people are. A classic example is the 'rating' of a person's attractiveness. "On a scale of 1-10, you are a ___." I mean really, is that necessary? And, its everyone, not just the "ugly" or the "pretty...
