Ask the guys? Do they find women attractive because they're told to find them attractive or because they just find them attractive? Then you'll know whether men are attracted to white women because they are the standard or whether they are the standard because men are attracted to them.

All young boys who reside in the West, are fed an array of images which depict white girls/women as the standard of beauty. Every form of entertainment, from movies, TV shows, magazines, video games, etc, consciously and subconsciously reinforce this message on a daily basis.

I think it's more about symmetrical features. Almost every culture finds symmetry to be a good quality, and white women are more likely to have symmetrical features.

Not only that, but the features are often important in certain other cultures. Skin color for example, important in the Indian & East Asian cultures. It's indicative of class, wealth, occupation, ancestry.

White women are more likely to have symmetrical features? Hmmm can you support this?

It's just observation. The features are more symmetrical that the typical flat, wide noses, big lips and round faces.

This whole thread is based off of speculation and being politically correct. There is one study proving that white women and Asian women tend to be perceived as most attractive due to lower testosterone levels, which means they have more delicate features than certain other groups of women.

Likewise, black men and white men have slightly higher testosterone levels and tend to have features perceived as more masculine. Strong jaw bone, height, broad shoulders and ability to gain muscle, as well as deeper voices.

Trying to make this as politically correct as possible, without offending people causing then to whine and complain

Please learn to observe more keenly. Any types of features can be symmetrical. And the flat, wide noses, big lips and round faces are just as common in Asia as in Africa. Seen many Chinese people lately?

Who did the study? Josef Mengele?

I guess you couldn't read through the lines, huh? Of course, the study was done by an Asian man and I believe he also said Asian men were seen as the most desirable. But the point still stands that there is a racial hierarchy regarding beauty.

And of course you'd equate a study on beauty and race to Josef Mengele. Typical liberal response

Beauty standards exist for a reason and that's exactly why this question is being asked

What lines were there to read through?

There is no racial hierarchy to anything, much less beauty.

Of course. Did I strike a nerve? Hit close to home?

Way to politicize things.

What reason is that?

Beauty standards vary according to individuals. Period. The rest is pure bulldinky.

Nope, no nerve hit. But bringing up Josef Mengele seems to show you're a bit too much into your emotions.

But if you want to tell yourself there's no racial hierarchy, perhaps you should exit this question considering this is pretty much what it's about. We can blame the media all we want but when you go into the slums of India they aren't going to be too familiar with Charlize Theron, but skin color and facial features will still be something they focus heavily on.

And the women who do go on to become famous in Bollywood will have some typically Caucasian features
