Most Helpful Girl
I'm going to literally copy and paste the same thing that I wrote in a recent post asking which gender is more of a hypocrite but replace the word "hypocrite" with "shallow":
" I just love how guys say women are more likely to be (shallow) and women say guys are more likely to be (shallow) XD this just shows how human nature is more likely to blame others (or a group that one doesn't belong in) for faults that they themselves might be guilty of."5
Most Helpful Guy
I have no idea.
All I can say is that I'm still waiting on "plus-sized" male models and women who say they're so incredibly handsome from just their photograph.
When it comes to "beauty standards" they actually seem harsher on men to me, but that could be coming from males as well and not just females. It's like a very short guy without a six-pack and much muscle definition of any sort is generally not going to end up shirtless on a billboard.
With girls there are still a lot of strict beauty standards when it comes to the media, but quite a variety of shapes and sizes are considered beautiful there.
On the flip side those guys without a six-pack might actually do reasonably well with women anyway if they possess some alternate qualities of attraction like confidence, power, leadership, social skills, humor, good job, etc. Women don't seem to have nearly as many backdoor options if they're lacking in looks.2
