Damn, zombunny is right guys. Get over it.

I think she`s attractive (though probably more so unphotoshopped), but then, there are very few people that I looks at and think,"holy poo they`re ugly."

Zombunny does make sense. I found her observations astute. The truth rang soundly in her words.

People do feel pressured by media, whether they`re stupid to or not because guess what: people are stupid.

Gerry: Good trolling. At least I`m assuming so since you`re not normally so ignorant of what was actually written.

I think society as a whole just sucks. As a personal rule: people in general suck pretty bad. Look at Black Friday sales and people pepper spraying each other to get a deal. Look at what`s #1 on the charts right now
(LMFAO. Actual lyrics:
Check it out [x2]
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle yeah [x4]
Do the wiggle man [x2]
Yeah I`m sexy and I know it)
It`s number one because the majority love it. God help us all.
Where does the blame lie? Men? Women? Society? Try ourselves. Ourselves for not teaching personal responsibility to our children and that the choices you make and the attitudes you choose to adopt are all your doing. Society and the majority will keep doing their own stupid sheepy things whether we like it or not. We need to arm ourselves and our children with the tools to recognize and deal with it in an intelligent way.

Dixxyrarr: "There never has and will never be a culture without standards for what is or isn`t beautiful"

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said marry a person for one of four aspects: wealth, beauty, prestige, and iman (faith/belief/character). The first three would probably fail, but the last one would last.

actually Keegan31- mostly against victim, and I have to sleep! but it interests me how there is such a huge debate about what zombunny actually said- no gender based blame, merely a call to look closely at the values we accept as normal. Yes- women do it too- but there is also a backlash against women who do as Zombunny did and ask us to re-eveluate our mores. So- for a young person it may be safer to just conform, bleach your hair and teeth, diet aggressively, get surgery etc. This is the fault of us all, we need to address it, and by complaining and attacking when someone does we just make the problem worse.

Well I`m definitely not going to blame it on Eve because I don`t believe in that :P

But actually you`ll notice I said it was human nature, not woman`s nature. It`s just women that most voraciously consume the media they claim puts them under such terrible pressure. They seem to be fine with it when it`s Spot The Celebrity Cellulite in Heat Magazine.

Did I say I was doing the teaching? Sorry if I wasn`t clear. What I meant to convey were the lessons society communicates to us all as we grow.

If I ever had a daughter I`d do my best to teach her how to be comfortable being who she wanted to be, just as I do with my son.

Despite this being an internet debate in which nothing very funny was said, I get the feeling you`d be pretty funny and I think your intelligent and a bit quirky in a way I find very attractive.

You`re just wrong.

@Zombunny. Most men are just tired of feeling like targets for things were aren`t directly responsible for.

I grew up as the only boy in a family Full of feminists. I`m pretty damn tired of being blamed for all the problem`s women face. Sure, maybe you`re not blind to women`s responsibility in how they feel, but you`re on a very, very short list.

Men, from a young age, are taught to be responsible. We`re taught to fix our own damn problems, to blame ourselves when we fail. We`re taught not to count on anyone, but ourselves.

Women are taught to depend, they`re taught to displace blame, to get others to fix their problems, to never except responsibility.

Sorry if I come of misogynistic. I don`t hate woman, I love them. I can`t imagine a world without my wife. I`m just really, really tired of being blamed.

Yes, I get it. Women try to look a certain way to please us guys, right? Well do me a favor and tell all your girlfriends something for me?

Guys don`t care nearly as much as you do! I mean guys`ll drat sheep. They`ll literally do Farm Animals out of sheer desperation. We don` care about magazines; Photoshopped images start turning us off after we start having sex with real women. I`d take nearly any normal girl walking down the street over any sheet-thin, if you drat me to hard I`ll break, model any day of the week.

We care just a much as you girls do. All we want is a woman who takes care of herself. When you see a flabby out of shape guy you never think, "he should probably eat some salad and excerise"? I know I do.

At first I found the responses here frustrating and disturbing, but the more I think about it, the funnier it gets. It really is amazing to me that my initial comment, which made no accusations, placed no blame, and simply stated a widely accepted fact, has garnered so much vitriol from the people who feel uncomfortable reading it. Discussions like this always separate the men from the boys. The level of hateful, childish responses to a very simple an harmless statement of fact here tell me that we humans still have a very long way to go. I laugh about it now because it just seems so absurd to me, but really I do feel sorry for those who have failed (or refused) to grasp the reality of the situation. You`re the ones who will be left behind as the rest of us move forward.

How can someone who is 40+ years old not know that feminism isn`t about equality?

Get with the times lady, it`s about whining about men when women have it worse in any type of way.

Just so you know women are the one who created the entire "hourglass perfect" look, and no it`s not unhealthy. If you look like that you are extremely healthy assuming there was no surgery done to get there.

It`s wrong to want someone to take care of themselves? If you`ve got the pick of any girl you want, why wouldn`t you go with the attractive one and not the fat cow?

inb4 personality, just because you are attractive doesn`t mean you`re retarded. Surprisingly enough it was fat cows who popularized that idea.

Anorexia and bulimia aren`t "diseases", it`s just a cop out for having mental retardation.

I believe you may have missed this comment, Gerry.

"Notice that, despite Gerry`s poorly thought out response, I did not at any point claim that men are entirely to blame for all of women`s problems and we`re not responsible. We are responsible. So are men. We are all to blame. Men and women alike should ask themselves what they`re doing to contribute to the problem, and how they can change it. I know it boggles some minds to see me taking such a fair and reasonable stance, because most of you learned everything you know about feminism from people who don`t know the meaning of the word."

@ Zombunny - yes, I read your comments. And it seems to me that it`s all someone else`s fault. The media... men`s expectatiosn... society. How on earth could women be victims of societies demands for beauty when they ARE 50% of "society"? And yet you say you don`t do it to yourselves... That`s right up there with the bible for contradictions.

This is a problem, not just for women, but for an entire generation...lack of responsability. How about taking charge of your own life, your own appearance, your own circumstance? Not putting the fault anywere else.

Oh wow. Sh*t got heated. Since you asked, here`s my two cents:

1. There never has and will never be a culture without standards for what is or isn`t beautiful (well- except maybe super early caveman... and even still, sister was probably like `damn, that loin cloth be looking fine!") And sometimes a culture`s beauty standards are unhealthy and unachievable... foot binding, crossed eyes, flat foreheads, neck rings, being super heavy or super thin etc. It affects both men and women. It has always been and always will be... with or without the media.

2. Eh... I had something uplifting to write here. Something along the lines of `Rise above! Beauty is only skin deep! Real beauty is in the heart!! If you`re not cute, be funny! Or play an instrument!` ... you get what I mean...


Also- Yay Zombunny is back!! Missed you, girlfriend :)

Gerry- yes we do have a choice- to an extent. Those of us who are educated and yes, feminist ( oh how awful to demand equality) can see this for what it is. But unless we talk about it and bring the discussion out there are a lot of kids who cannot understand- they just accept the way it is. How would you have felt if no one pointed out that being gay happened to others? Gay people have more freedom to be what they are thanks to some gays sticking their heads above the parapet and TALKING about it...

zombunny - I agree with you that the media does put pressure on women to be thin and young. But taking those negative messages to heart, Internalizing or believing them is your own fault. But I watch women and I`m the Personal Gay for some and know what they say to each other and about each other. You ladies are viscious the way you tear each other down. Girls dress to impress the other girls at a party much more than to impress a guy.

Trust me on this, I do know about societal pressure to be differant from what you are. You have a choice whether to buy into it or not.

Zombunnies argument is not invalid, her argument is perfectly valid. I cannot fault it, almightybob seems to think that this pressure is the fault of women ( Eve again perhaps?) rather than society as a whole. whilst up until recently women where the target and victims of this pressure, it has started to affect boys too, the whole thing is ridiculous but it has a profound effect on people. It is a good thing to be healthy, clean and well groomed- but to take it to the extremes we are getting to is ludicrous.

... or how funny they are, just how physically attractive) or
b) an analysis of the chosen outfit/physical appearance of other women.

And of course, plenty of times in exclusively male company the conversation has similarly revolved around the physical attractiveness of anyone and everyone (often my friends` mothers).

Now should I conclude that advertising has so pervaded the lives of everyone I know that they are helpless to the whims of the advertising world, even in private conversation?

Or should I conclude that (almost) everyone has a primal sexual drive and instinct, physical attractiveness (unlike intelligence, humour or other personality traits) can be evaluated at a glance, and people are inclined to gossip and bitch a bit, and the media has reacted to that rather than the other way round?

Off the top of my head, The Iron Lady, release date today. A frumpy old woman playing a frumpy old woman.

The reason you often don`t get a reasonable, well constructed argument is because this is the internet and a large proportion of its inhabitants are trolls. The same place where if you write against homophobia you will probably receive a stream of comments saying "lol fag". It may well indicate insecurity, discomfort and fear in some of the commenters, but in most it`s simply childish amusement at winding someone up further (summarised by the phrase "u mad bro?").

Plenty of times I have been the only guy in a group of female friends, and incredibly often the conversation will involve either
a) critique of how hot various guys are, from mutual friends to random people passing by (NB: not how smart they are or

, it makes some men so incredibly uncomfortable that they immediately make attempts to demoralize her with baseless statements about her own perceived lack of physical beauty? Why the instant jump to the woman`s looks, instead of typing out a reasonable argument against her views? This is a reaction that, in my opinion, comes from fear of acknowledging an elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about.

@almightybob,
Why is it so hard to understand that the reason women give in to this sort of behavior is because they are conditioned from birth to do so? From childhood we are taught that our physical beauty is our greatest asset, that pleasing others is our duty. Of course they`re going to grow up to buy those magazines as adults. It`s all around us in everything we experience. Most men and women become complacent and even blind to it. They buy into the idea that it`s natural, that this is the order of things, that it`s not our fault. It is our fault. It`s everyone`s fault.


So the general consensus here is that misogyny is an imaginary boogeyman under our beds? In that case, can someone please explain to me why it is that in online forums like this one, when a woman expresses dissent against the status quo, when she has the nerve to make a statement acknowledging the unfair pressures put on herself and the women around her...

Also, my sister buys tremendous amounts of crappy girls` magazines like OK, Grazia, Hello etc etc. It`s rare to find an issue of these where there ISN`T a section devoted to something like "fashion disasters" or "celebrity cellulite spotting" or some other pedantry that would be correctly called bitchiness if it was a conversation amongst friends.
These magazines are written by women, for women, and it`s media that is 99% consumed by women.

@SnoopyBG: In some countries parents actually stuff their kids` faces with food because fat women are considered incredibly sexy. Also, a few hundred years ago (talking about evolution) it was also sexy to be fat; fat equaled being healthy and being able to bear healthy offspring, and being able to feed them enough. This is all common knowledge, but I don`t think you have access to a lot of educational sources...

Evolution pressures women to get a mate and thus breed, so they want features which indicate they are good breeding stock. Symetrical features, wide hips, narrower waist etc. Problem is that widespread image manipulation ( and prior to that- corsets) have made the `perfect` female form pretty much unobtainable but there is constant pressure to conform to what is seen in the media......

No, evolution pressures a woman to want to look sexually attractive.
I don`t get it. Do you women want to look like cows and not be bothered about it?
I know a few very beautiful girls, who deny it and think they are ugly. Media never told them that. It`s all in their own crazy mind.
This is like fat people wanting others to accept them the way they are. Well, no way-you`re fat and it`s wrong, in the jungle you`d be tiger food.

I`m tired of women complaining about the media pressure to be thin. America is the fattest nation on earth so aperantly you aren`t feeling all that much pressure or you`re eating to compensate.

The only people making you feel like you have to be thin are other women. Every woman who walks in the door is critiqued by every other woman in the room. You tear each other down about weight, clothes, hair, style, etc. then blame the media for putting pressure on you.

I don`t blame the media for making me want to bone everything I see. That`s just how men are. The moral of that is "Stop making excuses and own it."

Man, we IABers are mean - Sh*t, zombunny makes a good point, we have this perception fed to us by the media of how a woman should look, with tits the size of watermelons, a waist you could slip a ring over, and then an ass that just don`t quit. Pick up any copy of a men`s magazine, check the front cover. Without getting all feminist on this sh*t (I`m not allowed to be feminist, I have testicles), it`s no wonder so many young girls these days suffer from anorexia, bulemia etc. All it takes is an impressionable mind and peer-pressure.

Hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I went to visit my aunt today in hospital, who`s suffering from severe anorexia. Won`t go into details about her recent operation, and the bag, and how she looks.

Besides, if zombunny`s avatar pic is actually her (no reason to assume otherwise), then she`s far from a jealous fatty.
