It's no good, I can't help it. I have to ask, what 'responsibility'?


Thats a good question. If women are able to use their appearance to get benefits when compared to women who do not have the same good looks, or compared men whose looks are not seen as valuable and appealing as womens looks, should those women not acknowledge this and be accountable for any negative consequences upon others?

I see that women who do benefit from their looks do so with little conscience, women who do not benefit from having good looks rail against the fact that men dont have the same issue making it a direct gender issue, when it is primarily an issue between women. I accept that men are fundamental to this conflict between women, but the issues that become public seem to place responsibility squarely with males. Men and women should be equally accountable for the trials of human society, yet men are usually held responsible and women are seen as the victims.
