This concept has been touched on before, but here it has not always been well received. That is, men have to accomplish, and women just have to be. This is especially true for young women.
Society still expects men to work. The bible does also. Probably that is where much of the expectation started. Men who are not working are considered to be bums. The shaming aspect is high. But not only does a man have to work, he is expected to work at his maximum ability. If he is trying to attract a woman, this is true. If he has a family this is also true. These views don’t look like they are going to change anytime soon.
For women, it is very different. A modern young woman really doesn’t have to do anything. She just has to be. It used to be that there was an expectation of domestic skills, an attempt to stay presentable, and level of general graciousness. Today, a plain young woman who is not fat is like a golden child. She is maybe in the 80th percentile. She can get lots of attention and resources from men. She, like all women who desire it, can also get lots of attention and resources from the government.
And what is it with all of the fat girls in high school these days? At that age, one has to work hard to be fat. Yet, it seems that the majority of high school girls are so. But then again, they still have “customers” even so.
