Why do people say that women are not as visual as men? It seem like women are definitely as visual, and sometimes even more than men.
Taking GAG as an example, most females here say that they wouldn't even consider dating a guy who they don't find physically attractive, even if he has an amazing personality. Its like they just dismiss a guy based on looks alone, before even knowing about him and obviously can't go back even if they come to know he has other things (other than looks) going for him.
Not just GAG, but even elsewhere women in general obviously wouldn't want to date someone who isn't attractive by their their standards.
So why are people (both men and women) under the illusion that women are not as visual as men, although nothing could be further from the truth?
Both guys and girls are most welcome to vote and answer. And please refrain from getting personal or saying nasty, unwarranted stuff because this is a just a general question and I'm looking to gain some insight into it.

What most women say they want is bullshit. What they say and what they go for are always two different things. I have a bunch of female friends and witness this from the insiders perspective all the time. Goes for the same kind of guy non stop, but always gives me a bullshit story how this time she likes this, or that, when the last time she liked that.
Women have no idea what their desires are. Only the ones who openly examine themselves and look at the statistics objectively can tell you the truth. So don't listen to women, that's the dumbest thing you can do when trying to seduce them.
Now onto your question.
If women were visual like you, they'd be watching p*rn, not reading it. If they were visual like you they wouldn't care what kind of clothes you're wearing in order to decide whether you're attractive. They'd want to see you naked. If women were as visual as men, they'd be attracted to pretty boys, not manly looking guys with beards and plain clothes.
Women are attracted to ideas. They don't care about WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE, but about WHAT YOUR LOOKS TELL HER ABOUT YOUR POWER.
Women are attracted to power: social influence, dominance of your character, financial, physical strength, mental prowess, humor, innovativeness, etc.
What your looks tell her about your potential power will be attractive.
That's why you can have a pretty boy "nice guy", who gets no girls.
And a weird looking "asshole" who gets the girls.
No we are not as visual as men and the only reason a girl will say that shit is if she's been convinced it's what she likes by society. And society is as you know, shaped by feminism who chants the propaganda of how men and women are the same.13

Well I believe it is not a myth. I have talked with dating coaches and such, one of their big teachings for guys is that girls aren't as visual as guys. This is why;
Time and time again i keep seeing and hearing of women dating guys not attractive or sub-par, and these are women that are 8+
One of my school teachers has everyone forthing over her, just recently found out her boyfriend is really ugly. Everyones reactions are WTF.
My previous crush, a beautiful girl that has guys longing for her. The night before i found out who her crush was, i was looking at this guy and said to myself;
"She wouldn't like him because he isn't attractive at all". Next day i found out HE did not want her and she was going nuts over him.
My Ex, extremely beautiful girl. I asked her straight out after we werent together, "Why do girls like you want ripped guys". She said she wasn't interested in that at all as long as the guy was good. 2 months later was shocked at her BF and how such a beautiful girl was going out with him.
Finally myself. Literally today people and friends were super jealous and wondering how on earth i pulled off a 9-10/10, and did not believe me, andim not very attractive.
Even on GaG i have seen questions on what girls prefer and most choose personality traits such as funny etc, over looks.
This does not mean that girls are attracted to guys not so good. They may avoid them because they could have limitations (no offence e. g large people). But if a guy knows what he's doing, Is reliable, funny and such he can score what other guys would dream of or call IMPOSSIBLE. I have done it. Not all girls are the same e. g. Rich girls, playboy girls, money hungry girls. But majority will choose a man with leadership qualities and such which is taught or comes naturally.. Peace!2
