I don't blame men, I think they fall for it as much as women. I blame the advertising agencies, fashion industry etc. I do think there is that old double standard - i know lots of men who let themselves go but expect women to be tiptop. I could expound some more but I'm in the middle of fixing a picnic for me and my man to have a special day. This also involves having wow hair & intriguing eye make up
Men have a kind of ****ed up relationship with male beauty, tbh. It's like they can pretty themselves up and workout and stuff, as long as they pretend that what they're doing is just the normal, minimum, everyday level of acceptable appearance for a person. Whereas if anyone implies that they're actually just trying to look sexy, the wave function collapses, and it all becomes totally ****ing gay. Or something.
Basically men have to pretend they don't know what an attractive man looks like so that their heteroids don't prolapse.
I kind of wish that, as a culture, we'd get over the boring generic concept of beauty and an ideal, and start experimenting with our appearance. How do we know whether a woman painted red with fake antlers would be empowering (or sexy!) until someone has the ladyballs to just **** it all and do it?
