Why is a woman always judged on her looks?Watch
By reducing a woman’s worth down to her appearance, we slyly diminish her role and her value as a contributor to society
(That said, I used to work in recruitment and had a male candidate with excellent qualifications- but absolutely disgusting teeth. Black/brown/missing. He interviewed quite well but obviously interviewers assumed that he might have some personal problems that they wanted to steer clear of.)
But being an average looking man man is not quite the same "crime" as being anything less than a decent looking woman. I think it is as much an obsession with youth as it is feminine beauty. Men are obsessed with youth because effectively that is nature. Women have a much shorter fertility window.
Sucks but that's life.
Men have had their value to society diminished quite inherently in recent years.
Complaining that men like pretty women doesn't really cut it when women's general standing in society has never been higher.
