Some women measure their worth based on their attractiveness to men (sexy men, mostly that is). This apparently would have its roots in the fact that women are mostly helpless just before child birth and for some time after; and as such, need protection and resources from a man. Thus she needs to be able to attract a man. However, some women go through much of their life (or perhaps all of it) doing little else other than trying to be attractive and getting validation from it.
This all seems pointless, and does not benefit anyone. She does not benefit (validation is a dubious benefit), the men she engages do not benefit, and society does not benefit. A woman can do this in todays era because she has money, money that did not come from an individual man (it comes from either from her job or from welfare). As such, she doesn’t actually need what it is that she is seemingly striving for (an individual man’s resources). This is akin to consuming unlimited no calorie soda pop: it gives the pleasure of sweetness (at least somewhat) and none of the calories (calories in the olden days were a good thing). This is a system built for one environment going all wrong in another. What is to be done?
