Because I've already said that the women who represent other communities typically have Caucasian features. They don't necessarily want to see a white woman, but they want to see a whiter version of their kind, with European features. A broad nose, not so big lips, high cheekbones, a heart shaped/oval face, straight or "good" hair, light skin.

And I also mentioned that in some cultures, these features (which are often considered European/white features) are indicative of other things such as social class.

To second your thoughts, I wonder if anyone saw Miss USA last night. The finalists were pretty much looked the same. They all pretty much had the same facial features, even the black lady. Just goes to say that by the time women are filtered as "pretty" they will all more or less look the same.

Maybe the Nordic thing not so much anymore, but definitely the Caucasoid look. That looks Latinas, who are mostly European (the ones plauded as beautiful).

That's it. Even when people say, 'oh, look there's an Asian/African woman' it's usually a woman with more 'white' or neutral features. Ethnocentric features like a broad nose or small eyes are never showcased in Miss Universe etc...

You mean including North Africans? Because certainly those women sure don't have the features that the media depicts as beautiful. Too dark.

Umm...

High cheekbones are kind of an Asian trait. Actually they ARE an Asian trait. Caucasoid faces rarely have high cheekbones, unless they belong to Eastern Europeans, who do have slightly more Asian faces. Broad noses are also seen in Blacks and Asians. Do you mean small, thin noses???

This is moot, though. These other features you listed aren't by any means held by Europeans exclusively. Middle Easterners, certain Indians and South Asians, North and East Africans, etc. all have these "European" features. Europeans do NOT have a monopoly on these features, and for those that do believe it, google pictures of Ethiopians, East Indians, Somalians, Palestinians, and other people of the Middle East.

Again, read my post. People of European descent have no monopoly on said features.

Just look at certain forums such as reddit or bodybuilder. the same guys who only date/like Asian women are the same ones who bad mouth white women, yet they're white guys.

And guys at my school are actually open about their dislike for certain non-Caucasian groups of women...and they're white guys who could probably get any girl. Wealthy, southern, short but eh looking.

Yeah, the Caucasian guys who like non-Caucasian women are typically not quality men.There are those few Robert DeNiro rejects who lack choices and therefore settle on finding other groups of women attractive. But that's after they realize the hot girls of their race don't want them.
Disagreed, many well to do and rich in the East Coast date Asian because white women have been known to be disingenuous and manipulative when it comes to money and status. Look at Mark Zuckerberg you can laugh at him all you want, he could easily gotten any girl he wanted being CEO of Facebook even before their IPO he stayed with his Asian girlfriend who by all means not all that attractive.

Many white guys also agrees that most white women's beauty starts to fall apart when they turn 30. Look at Lindsay Lohan, she maybe a bad example but she's quite common here in the Northeast especially women that that are in corporate and spends a lot of time drinking and smoking.

Are you seriously trying to prove that a very subjective matter like the beauty of one race over another? Get over yourself. It means less competition for guys like you!

I personally like White women (and by White I mean women with fair complexions, not the term to encompass all Caucasoid like peoples who for the most part are not even light skinned). I like Danish and Swedish women. But does that mean I look down upon guys who like Blacks or Asians?

At work I am the only guy that likes White girls. Every other coworker likes Blacks and "Latinas" (you know, that term that to them really means racially ambiguous brown skinned women). Few guys agree with me that White girls are attractive. But I am on the South Side of Chicago. So no, even non-White guys can be attracted to their own kind. I know! Such a shock to hear!

Anyway, I personally like flat butt, small lipped, skinny White girls. So many guys look at me like I'm crazy. But hey, the lanky Northern European look does it for me. Except don't feed a Nordic girl too much because they will get fat and they do NOT store body fat effectively (they tend to not have hips or butts so the fat goes right to the gut and the face). So they're not perfect, either. But they are my faves.

I don't even like Italian girls (who at one point weren't White at in my opinion still aren't) because even though they have pretty faces, they are hairier than most women and do not age gracefully and with age can look like men. But again, all MY opinions here. No argument. Who cares if you like Italian women? I don't. To each his own.

Only losers argue over what type of women are the prettiest.

Meh, I think Northern Europeans retain more of their young features with age. Mediterranean women on the other hand look like dudes when they pass 40. But I don't consider Mediterraneans White, so....
