Why are girls hard on each other about appearance?

My guy mentioned that we girls criticize each other more than guys about appearance. Most of the time, this is true. Why do we do this and more importantly, why does our culture judge us so much harsher than guys when it comes to appearance? Is it tradition? Expectations? Is it learned? Is it biological? Any opinions will be appreciated. Thanks!

    • Yes. We are. In some ways more than men over the "long run."

  • Gurl, men don't get the advantage of wearing makeup to hide all the shit that'd make their ugly asses unbearable to the eye, just be thankful if you ever look like Skeletor in the mirror when you wake up in the morning, you can cover it up.

    Though if you DON'T want to cover it up, I'd actually be fully behind you on such a decision.

  • The same reason men are hard on each other about how successful they are. COMPETITION. Men know women want successful men, and women know men want HOT women

What Girls Said 2

  • Because it makes them feel better about themselves

    OR

    because they've been trained to believe that that's one of the most important traits a girl can possess hence making her overly critical towards all females including herself

    OR

    because they are just mean and want to hurt someone else

    OR

    because they're projecting.
