Beauty Double Standards

In our first blog entry, we wrote:

men and women are judged differently seeing as we have different bodies, hormones and chromosomes, the feminists have a never-ending list of “concerns” and “double standards” as to why a given standard applies to women by not to men, forgetting that there are plenty of standards that apply to men, but not women.

This is a particular concern of feminists. It justifies everything they say. “You see, men can be 200 pounds, but women cannot. There. There! You see, feminists win. This is proof that women have it bad and standards of beauty must be changed.”

This makes perfect sense to an fat ugly feminist. See, she’s not ugly, you are just putting up unfair obstacles in front of her. Of course, if a woman is not fat, making 200 pound beasts more attractive at her expense doesn’t seem like the coolest idea. Ever met a hot woman who’s an angry feminist? Yeah, well neither have I. Why would a desirable woman want to change beauty standards to make herself less attractive? More importantly, she’s not so deluded by her anger to think that a person’s sexual desire – something that isn’t controlled by any part of the brain that is in charge of rational, logical thought – can be changed by a government dictate.

But let us indulge the feminists. It’s true that a man can be 200 pounds and still be attractive, but a women cannot. Never mind that this man is probably taller, seeing as most men are taller than women. Never mind that he’s probably wider. Never mind that his bones are thicker and more dense. Never mind that he has more muscle. Never mind that a man can be 200 pounds and have a body fat of 6%, but a woman who’s 200 pounds is most certainly unhealthy.

Even if we assume that the man and the woman are equally fat, why should a woman be judged more harshly? Well, why is it ok for a woman to be 5-foot-2, but not for a man? For every standard that applies primarily to women, there’s a standard that applies primarily to men. But no angry feminist will ever admit to this.

Women should be thin, men should be tall.
Women should be pleasant, men should be confident.
Women should be able to take care of the house, men should be able to provide for the family.

These qualities were not chosen at random, they are based on the scientific way men and women are different. Testosterone makes men taller, stronger, more confident. Estrogen makes women’s personalities more pleasant, it makes their hair softer and shinier, it “helps decelerate height increase in females during puberty, accelerates burning of body fat and reduces muscle bulk,” among many other things.

Every quality that is desirable (or not) to the opposite gender is based on men displaying their testosterone-developed traits and women displaying their estrogen-developed traits. Feminists can deny this only because they are scientifically ignorant and they play to an audience that is as well. “Why is it ok for a man to be aggressive, but not for a woman,” screech the feminists. And it makes so much sense when you think about it logically without understanding basic science. “Yes, it’s not fair, I guess,” the people think.

But aggression is tied to testosterone. Estrogen has just the opposite effect. A man’s display of normal testosterone is viewed as a positive. A woman displaying a personality that is out of balance with what her hormones should be dictating is viewed negatively. Likewise, a woman who cries is viewed as normal because her hormones mean that she can be perfectly normal and cry. A man who cries because he’s watching a sad movie is viewed as disgusting because “a real man”, a man with normal hormonal development, would not do so. Feminists claim that this is all our culture, but of course, it’s not.

These are just a few qualities, but there are many more. There’s simply no quality that applies to women that doesn’t have a male equivalent. Being an equivalent doesn’t mean that the standard is the same, so feminists whine. But their whining is the product of their inability to compete with other women, rather than being faced with unattainable goals. For most women, it’s very attainable. The remainder become feminists.
