It's absolutely true that other women are the reason that women feel so pressured to use (lots of) makeup, and to be so obsessed with fashion and appearance, because other women are so quick to cut them down for any little flaw. And while there ARE some shallow guys out there, most guys are much more relaxed, and would prefer the girl to be more natural and real. We know you have flaws, and that we do too, and we don't expect you to be some Photoshopped-perfect magazine model every day of your life.
Girls need to learn to be much less harsh about other girls, and to care less about what other girls think of their appearance. You'd all be so much happier that way, and so would we.
I belive it. I was watching an interview before and the girl said something along the line of "when we are dressed up in public it's to show the other girls that we are better looking than the others."
for guys depending on what they are into it can be cars, guns, computers or other toys that they can show off.
Yeah. I buy that. But then, girls are generally MUCH nastier to other girls than guys would ever think to be. And despite all of that when people think of "sexism" they think of guys being nasty to girls.
I do. Girls are *viscious* when it comes to tearing down other girls.
Someone somewhere once defined a misogynist as A man who hates women, almost as much as women hate other women.
Somewhere else on GAG today, a girl told the story of how her best friend kept telling her that she wasn't interested in this guy, (that the QA had a crush on) right up until the point where her best friend and the crush started dating.
That sums up girls attitudes to other girls, for me. Even their best friend gets stabbed in the back.
Guys on the other hand, have a phrase : Bros before hos.
Kind of. I think we might be harsher on looks than most guys are. Prime example: A coworker of mine was telling me about this girl he started dating and talking about how pretty and beautiful she was. I was expecting a model, like a Lauren London lookalike or something. When I finally saw her, I was underwhelmed because to me she was average, but then that just let me know that hey I'm the one with the ridiculously high standards and harshly judging this girl. He sees her beauty and likes her, and I'm over here thinking that she ain't sh*t because she doesn't look like a model. lol
