Yes. Think about it. To be considered as beautiful today you need to have perfect and smooth skin, perfect, silky hair, a tiny waist, skinny, have huge breasts and a huge butt. If you don't reach society's standards of beauty, you'll be constantly called ugly and hideous. That's not it. If you wear "too much" makeup, men will start complaining about how you're unnatural.

If most men find women with big breasts, long legs, and a big butt etc "sexually" attractive that is not ridiculous, that is their taste! It is however unreasonable to expect men to control their desire like a switch they can simply turn on or off. This is what you seem to suggest men do by the way via saying it is silly to view those things as attractive.


I strongly doubt your opinion is based on facts. Believe it or not most men want a serious relationship. Though men are known for their commitment issues, the reasons behind them have nothing to do with a woman's physical appearance, see source below

Looking a certain way to please the majority of people is very silly unless you are a model, or a pornstar. Even these women don't have to be skinny etc to be attractive to their partner. There are plenty of men who find larger women more attractive, and as a result there are many dating sites dedicated entirely for such people, here is just one of them:

Lastly, you say women are told they wear too much makeup, this is a nice compliment.

I think this superficiality can be attributed to the fact that most view the self as an external identity. To them, beauty is only skin deep.
