Is it ok to assume and write on the blogs, a man is a liar/hypocrite, if he says, looks are not in the 7 things that attract him to the opposite sex (assuming he is hetrosexual, and same sex assuming he is homosexual)
Poll on till 11.10.2005 midnight:)
Poll Results : No : 3 Yes : 0
(Slogan Murugan assuming the rare ones you mentioned didnt include the blinds)
Bias doesnt have a gender. Its not that only males are biased or only females are biased.
The objective of the question was to point out about social sterotyping.
Its not about what is right and what is wrong about the stuff that attracts us. But on this being questioned, because they dont fit in a sterotype.
Looks is not the equivalent of money. Women can be financially independent. And there are men to whom the status and the wealth of the girl makes no difference. It doesnt mean they dont value money, but just are able to distingush between need and greed.
So looks not important to women, or more important to men then it is to women? Well ultimately it depends on the person.
In earlier societies women were not that independent and it was presumed all she could offer was her looks and housekeeping skills and a dowry. When women can change now, why cant men change.
Its easier to accept a woman in pants, and tougher to accept a man in skirts.
Its easier to accept woman are not saints but humans, but tougher to accept that men need not be devils but can be humans.
Just because a human is born feminine doesnt make that person "good and pure"
and just because a human is born masculine doesnt make that person "bad and barbaric"
To point out that men can suffer as much as women from bias was the objective of the poll.
The results are not indicative of the society or even blogging community. But was presented in form of a poll, to communicate a point. Thanks for participating and reading this post:)
