I know this is old news but I've been thinking about the misconceptions women have about men and their thoughts on women. I've spent my whole life under the impression that men are attracted to well...this:
The overly busty blonde female, with not an ounce of meat on her, who looks like she'd do just about anything to please you, include not think or talk about anything...ever.
I think we could all agree that most women think of this type of woman when asked what they think men are generally attracted to, right? Women all over the world spend thousands of dollars trying to look like this woman. Blonde hair dye, no meals, tanning beds, teeth whitening, body scultping, botox, silicon implants, nose jobs, liposuction...you name it, we've done it.
But now it comes out that in Esquire magazine Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame is voted the sexiest woman alive...wait...what?! My brain and all its well honed opinions just came to a screeching halt.
This woman has curves! I mean like a real woman's body! She has hips, and real breasts, and bright red hair, and pale skin and gasp, a personality! She probably even eats! She's a thinking woman's woman!
I'm confused. She is nothing, I repeat NOTHING like the woman I think we all envision when thinking about what men are supposedly attracted to. Does this throw anyone else for a loop? Or is it just me? Is anyone else surprised by these results and the obvious answer that we have men all grouped under these general shallow labels that they cannot get out from under?
I mean seriously. Wow.
God bless you Christina Hendricks and your real God given hips and beautiful ginger hair. I love you.
