    A Point Well Made

    There's a film you can watch on youtube called 'Miss. Representation' which discusses the way the media perpetuates artificial and stereotypical standards of beauty and how this psychologically affects female development. Check it out when you can ;-)

    I truly think and believe

    that women are judged to much on looks. If a woman is not a blonde, lovely looking, has no boobs, curves, or long legs then guys do not want them. That is so shallow of a man when looking for women to date and be friends with. Yes, I was certainly blessed as a woman with all...

    OKCupid study shows women say 80% of all men

    are "below average" looking. If men were judged by their looks as much as women are men would never get anywhere in life. Women just have stupidly high expectations

    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...

    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...

    (or more like a few things) I am ugly. My best friend and I are the mot unpopular people in our grade and I am positive no one has a crush on me. But I am a first honor student. If guys looked at that kind of stuff then I bet a lot of people would have a crush on me.

    Hello All,I don't think that the issue here is men judging women. Men do not care if you are too fat, short, skinny, etc. Men want women to be themselves. Yet there are some men out there (Not too many) that want a woman to look like a Barbie Doll. But most men don't care.The...
