    Hey, that works for me too. As much as 'political correctness' seems to be (somewhat distortedly) associated with the "left" on here at times it's something I've no time for in the main. I'm not a huge fan but by way of example I'm not impressed with the BBC making the new Dr Who a woman. It smacks of PC crap all ends up...

    So I would even like to discuss how women look, and end the myth that all women are beautiful just the way they are.
    (Talking about outer beauty, not inner beauty.)
    And I'm not interested at this time to discuss the looks of men compared to the looks of women, but to stick with the looks of women for this thread.
    It should be easier to talk about on this forum because hardly anyone posts a pic of themselves.
    Some have, but not many.
    So for the most part, talking about it should be a bit easier because no one knows what the other looks like, and is just giving their unbiased opinion IN GENERAL, and not speaking of anyone in particular.
    Well, it's a fact that not everyone is blessed with outer beauty or model looks. Can you expand on this a bit though just so there's something more to address? I mean, do you have a problem with how women are portrayed in fashion as example, makeup etc?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    It sure does, but then, again, I liked the old BBC.

    I gave one example in my previous post about obesity.

    In general, I would like to see women return to being feminine in looks and actions, and stop trying for some absurd gender-less society and also looking and acting like men.
    And again, I'm talking about generalities, not exceptions to the rule.

    I like feminine women and I like the idea of the Fifties type family. Even older than the Fifties and Sixties also. I like traditional Mothers and women. I like independent and working women too, but I prefer the prior. I was going to start a thread about the Fifties but I don't know enough, being born in 69. To think, we're about to enter the Twenties !! It was just the Twenties a hundred years ago !!!

    I agree.
    I think the new movie re-do of Lord of the Flies with girls is a mistake too.
    I have not watched Atomic Blonde, but I heard it didn't get good reviews for the same reason (trying to make it appear that there is no difference in men and women - all can do it all).
    It's like the movies are now trying really hard to remove gender stereotypes, roles, and distinctions.
    Not to mention that every single show now has to have multicultural characters or they won't even consider it.

    Why can't people just leave 'normalcy' alone?

    Yes, fair enough but that's not really the norm is it? In regards to looks then women in the fashion industry and the glamour side hardly look like men or are 'androgynous' in appearance in the main. Not by a long shot. Where it comes to 'actions' then that would depend on how you define them. There's nothing inherently unfeminine about having a career.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Apparel is another issue to talk about.
    I agree that women should wear apparel that is feminine looking.
    You don't have to give up comfort to do that.
    There are so many comfortable fabrics and styles nowdays that it should be no problem finding feminine looking comfortable clothing and shoes.
    Instead of walking around like a slob all the time.

    Come on ladies. flaunt your femininity!

    It depends how and why it's done but the PC aspect is a bane and it's tiresome in a lot of areas.

    But as I heard one commentator say ......
    "How come feminist always say there are not enough women in sports, tech jobs, and political office ........., but you never hear them say 'How come there aren't enough women in garbage pickup or cleaning sewer lines'????"

    I thought that was a fair point!
    How come we don't see feminist campaigning for more women garbage collectors?

    I was watching a television programme a few weeks back; it was on the topic of women being sexually harassed by men in the workplace. What I noticed is all five of these women were dressed in the most sexy business suits imaginable. They looked like they were doing their utmost to be, not only attractive, but sexually appealing.

    It seems they expected men to not have a normal male libido , yet when men seem passive they find them unattractive.

    It seems to become a rather biased way to have more control; why not do and dress what they preach? When women dress more conservative, it says they are all business, not personal.

    None of these women were ordinary looking

    There's the flip side to that. Women have often being associated with doing the less 'glamorous' side of work such as cleaning etc as it is.

    I bet that's an imaginary flip side.
    I wouldn't trade washing dishes and sweeping floors for lifting heavy stinking garbage cans all day long.

    Aprons should make a comeback.
    Not only are they practical and protect your clothing, but they can add a touch of femininity even if you are wearing jeans and a t-shirt.
    And they are easy to make yourself if you have any sewing skills at all.

    Here's some cuties.




    The classic French maid look:




    Or go really frilly.
