It is common knowledge that men who bear scars are seen in a more masculine light-- particularly specifically placed scars.
Does that same theory hold true in the female gender? Is it equally as alluring and/or interesting?
If a woman bore a long, jagged scar from her elbow to wrist... what would cross your mind, men?
What about one that snaked along her cheek?
The women that I have encountered all attempt to hide major scars, and I see not the reason. Personally, I cannot help but feel a bit fulfilled and proud when I glance at my own. Most of them were born through an enjoyable activity, or serve as a particular remembrance... I have no regrets.
I have always been curious. We all have scars from childhood or otherwise-- but I have never seen the topic discussed.

Well, unfortunately it is not a sign of masculinity in women, but it CAN STILL be attractive.
To explain, here is a very pretty and lovely girl who the guy finds "HOT HOT HOT" Then one day, she has a scar or stitches, bandage or a cast. Shallow people are disillusioned and disgusted. Polite people try to avoid mentioning it. Suddenly, all of the guys who crush on her enough care a lot about this pretty girl, and feel that, because of her minor/major injuries, now's there chance to prove that they don't just like her for her looks, they compliment her, and another thing, they get to show that you care about her, so to be less obvious about their concern (and maybe love) they may tease her and say something along the lines of "Well next time, try to stay off the_____" but always end with a sneaky but sincere, warm "You'll be alright'. That's the kill button every hopeful guy imagines for the situation, that when she's hurt, sad, and maybe even disfigured, she turns to you for comfort. I even want that! If that's not a form or at least a basis for real attraction I don't know what is! Every "sweetheart" guy whose heart IS sweet jumps at this opportunity. "Are you okay" can sometimes be too redundant. But hey, these are just my own thoughts. They don't mean much on a "That's not always the case".1
