I really don't get it. It makes no sense whatsoever for women to always worry about being too fat, too short, too dark skinned, too tall, too pale skinned, too (insert physical characteristic). It is especially wierd given that men have a far harder time getting a partner than women for equal effort, and that all kinds of men are with all kinds of women; why don't young women (around my age: I'm 21) realize this and think about other things more and about their bodies less? Or stop trying to look "perfect" and just get a partner who they like and enjoy? Just one example: I always see women my age wearing elaborate makeup and applying other cosmetics; I have also seen very sexy makeuples women my age, which makes me wonder why women my age even bother with cosmetics given that they have no skin features that (my Californian) society considers offputting (leaving aside acne). So I simply don't get why women my age even bother with makeup, given that they already look so attractive (both to me and, from what I can tell, society at large)? Now, I have nothing against women wearing makeup per se but, when a women is my age, it does seem a bit odd. Even given the mainstream media's (in the West, at least) propoganda promoting slender and (mostly) white and blonde women as the ideal, it still seems that girls would realize that the mainstream media's propoganda is little more than BS. So, what do you all think?
