I mean, I realize everyone should put effort into themselves, but it seems like the world defines a woman's worth based on her looks. Women with good looks are highly praised, & other women want to look like them. Not to mention, women are constantly getting plastic surgery to improve their looks, while you don't see men doing cosmetic procedures like this. While men may try to look good, they don't have quite the high pressure on them to be attractive. But most of things women are supposed to be focused on is related to their looks: hair, clothing, make-up, etc. You don't hear men talking about these things, just women. Women also fear getting older because their looks will fade. Why can't our lives be more than just looks, we have more to offer to the world.

I kind of feel like I'm the exception because I don't spend much time worrying about my hair or make-up or clothes. My hair is either up in a pony tail or I just brush it and leave it down. To me, taking my time to do my hair involves blow drying it before I go to bed so it's a little bit straighter the next day or if someone offers to do it for me I might take them up on the offer. Anything else takes too long and I consider it to be too much work...it's just hair. I hardly ever wear make-up because I think it's a waste of time and money...you just wash it off at the end of the day anyways. I'm not saying I never wear make-up but I think it's been about 2-3 months since I last wore it. On to clothing...I make sure I'm dressed for the occasion. If I can get away with shorts and a t-shirt then that's what I will wear. If I'm going to work, I'll make sure to dress up and wear nicer clothes. I just don't care much about how other people view the way I look. As long as I look clean and I'm happy with the way I look, then anyone who doesn't like the way I look can just go jump off a bridge for all I care.2
