while I agree that the society puts too much emphasis on a woman's appearance I dont see anyone forcing women to take 3-4 hours to get ready. I take 10-20 min and there is no way in hell I would waste hours of my life on something so irrelevant.
@VikaKisa Its a non verbal expectation, kind of like an unwritten rule. Its actually pretty common for girls to send hours and hours and hours preparing for a date. Guys know this too. I've heard of it being mentioned in the media when i was very young. Actually I was ridiculed by a guy I went out on a first date with just because he noticed that i didn't put on any makeup. I never spend hours preparing myself for a date but there are other women who feel obligated like they should due to societal expectations. Worst thing is, a guy criticizing that you don't look good enough even after all those hours of prepping. Trust me, it has happened.
Stop spending so much time on your makeup and deciding what to wear. That's why it takes you so long! We want you to look presentable... not like a ducking piece of art. Less is more! Fake eyelashes? Trash em. Fake nails? Trash em. Your indecisiveness and desire to look like the cutest thing ever isn't all coming from pressure from guys. The fashion magazines aren't targeted toward heterosexual men. They aren't written and edited by heterosexual men. These magazines are put together by women and gay men. So if you feel pressure to be perfect, blame them: gay men and other women.I feel like when people use the word "society" they don't even realize theiy're also a part of society. Our views are subjective, not objective. Thus, there's always going to be some people in "society" who feel one way or another. Blanket generalizations solve nothing. Having said that, I realized I may have done the same in my earlier statement as it pertains to men's desire or standards of upkeeing in appearance.
@1stPlace So If fashion magazines are brainwashing women that they need to spend hours preparing for dates, wouldn’t this brainwashing also extend to guys? Wouldn’t it also brainwash men that they can expect women to look to a specific standard to them? while believing they won’t need to do much on their part to impress us? Society teaches men that only women are supposed to cater to men, never the other way around. Boys think this is ok cus this is the way they are raised. And hence there was the guy who criticized me for not wearing makeup on the first date.

That has never really been true as feminists present it to us. In the past, people had it much harder than they have it today. Women back then had to work their butts off to prove they were good partners for the well being of the family. Sure there was some rich men that collected women based on her beauty, but the vast majority of people were poor, and could not afford to have worthless women leeching off of them.
I need to become better at this language.
You seem to be offended over this fact. by the way, if you think there's leagues. Then you belong in the shit tier.
Nah, I'm just stating the facts.And there's no reason to worry about my league. 😉
