Unfortunately in our society unreasonable
standards are placed on women
regarding what they look like and
how they dress. This I feel creates a
hostile culture for women I will explain
“hostile” at the end of this article.
Think about it, society pressures women to:
1.Arch their eyebrows
2.Paint their eyelids
3.Alter their eyelashes
4.Coat their faces
5.Paint their lips
6.Color their hair or put in extensions
7.Alter their breasts
8.Alter their stomachs
9.Alter their buttocks
10.Wear painful shoes in an effort to look pretty
11.Paint their nails
12.Wear “baby” tees, tight or form fitting, low cut, high cut, or short cut,
All for what? To keep up with, or
compete with other women or to get the
attention of men. Here is a secret for
women, men will look at you anyway,
because they are attracted to you.
All of the extra things can create a high
degree of lust in the mind of a predator,
especially when it comes to sexually
suggestive or revealing clothing.
so be aware when you go out that men will
notice a pretty or classy woman no
matter what she is wearing. Moreover,
all of that seems like a lot of work to
me, and somewhat of a burden on the
minds and hearts of women.
Especially when us men do not experience
this kind of pressure at all.
In addition, although some men do put
pressure on their women to conform,
from what I have learned the worse
pressure comes from other women themselves!
This is what I mean by a
“hostile culture”. Women are
brutally critical of each other
to the point of some women suffering
from anxiety or depression because of
the pressure to conform. I have a
high level of sympathy for women.
However, with all of that being said.
At some point daughters will be
introduced to this and the cycle continues.
How do we break the cycle and
redefine what it means to be beautiful
or attractive from a more natural,
realistic, and rationale perspective.
It is also even more important to keep
our daughters from growing up into
this “hostile culture” to soon. For
example, we have all seen little girls
having a face full of makeup, or
dressing a little too sexy or
revealing more than they should.
A good question to address with children
is when is the proper age to start
dressing the way society pressures grown
women to. If you think about it
from the perspective of a little girl
facing this in school, or being
approached by a predator, the benefit
of redefining beautiful, or attractive
from a more natural perspective becomes
even more clear. Here is my 4 part
summary on the matter. I encourage:
- Natural hair, anything other than that, be reasonable and DO NOT, attach your self esteem to it. IT’S NOT REALLY YOURS.
- Natural skin, if make up is used let it be reasonable, and DO NOT attach your self esteem to it. IT’S NOT REALLY YOURS.
- Reasonably feminine attire, that makes you feel good
- Regarding body shape, before you alter yourself with an implant, do everything you can to work for the body you want, you gain so much more as a person. If you do decide to go for an implant ask yourself “why am I doing this” do you have a reason that’s not shallow or based on societal pressure? If you do it you are most probably attaching your self esteem to it, but here is a reminder anyway, IT’S NOT REALLY YOURS.
What is your summary or solution?
