I've seen many beautiful young women that are African American, Asian and other nationalities. It's not just white women that are beautiful.

Given that media is generally used to sell products, and generate money from ratings, and push social agendas, its propably not the most reliable source to base the desirability of women or men on, especially not in the U.S. I don't really trust the media at all. Also, if people are using dating apps to form their opinions about the value of women in society, then these people don't seem very bright. Just truly lacking in brain matter. Wow. Just...Wow.

I'm a straight white woman and I have an opinion on the physical attractiveness of gay males.

Ricky Martin? Hot.

Truman Capote? Not so much.
Oh yeah! They're the ones that notice the most if you change your hair or wear fake eyelashes.

Here is my exact quote which said "most" not all (exceptions).

Miss Universe Winners
And most of them do have those western features. Would this pretty girl win?

Concepts of beauty change over time. During the Rennaissance and in many cultures, Ruebenesque woman were considered the height of beauty and in the 19th and early 20 th century, any woman with a tan were considered of a lower class. Now, there are many cultures that have looked at whiteness as something to be strove for. For example, Japanese culture, see Geisha girls, and Indian culture, with their conceptions of whiteness. The culture of whiteness, in Indian and Japanese societies as well as others, predated any Western contact.

Concepts of beauty have changed and will always continue to change.

Would be great if the MODS would check these ONE TIME/FIRST TIME poster's IP addresses and compare to existing regular posters. Then just use the posters normal CD name instead of the ridiculous "new account" they created just to start a dumb thread.

AMEN!! I'm normally not one to label a question as stupid, so I'll call this one misguided. The entire premise of the question ignores a basic human function of life:

The grass is always greener on the other side.

Besides, if this were true, how would white guys (supposedly most likely to end up with white women, or does that standard of beauty not apply to them?) develop yellow fever?

Step outside the US borders just for a minute. There is no standard unless you fall for it.

Let me go way back.

White women say "well people say we age the worst"

Yea that's true but your also seen as the most attractive females. Heck the closer a black or brown women is to looking white the more attractive she's perceived. So to me that's a great trade off

White women are viewed as the most attractive females by men who desire White women. Men who desire other races of women do not share this view at all.
