…women rating men…

a few days back, I posted some of the Dove vids that are going around the blogsphere…

Now of course there was gonna be a parody, what I didn’t realize is there’s more than one.

Via Erudite Knight I saw this…

Now, obviously it is meant for laughs so maybe we can’t draw real life conclusions but…

The first thing I thought of while watching this was a thread from Feminist Critics where they mentioned a trend among Okay Cupid profiles where women found men relatively less attractive.

There are a couple explanations that come to mind…

…one is the old trope that men are success objects and women are sex objects-therefore women may tend to dress better and be more comfortable posing infront of the camera. But those who study metrosexuality may disagree…

…and many who are familiar with the manosphere would mention hypergamy. This graph can be read allot of ways. Some may see it as late teen and early twenties women having their pick. Some may say it suggests men prefer younger women.

Thoughts?
