I read somewhere that the way a woman’s physical appearance is valued is vastly different from the way a man’s appearance is valued. We can argue about who has it worse but I wonder if we are really honest about how we deal with our shallow side. Do we really think that our looks are tied to how other people value us? Does it matter?
Do you think too much of a woman’s value in society is based on her looks? She doesn’t have to be kind, smart, or creative, as long as she has a pretty face and hot body, she can go far. This is evident in dating, obviously. Women are visual creatures too but it does seem that wear more forgiving of physical imperfections in our men.
I know some men can argue they are “judged” on appearance but it does not seem to be as severe. If we all believe that a woman’s worth is in her looks, what does that say about our society? How does this translate on the dating scene when it comes to who gets asked out on dates and why?
