But the OP, if you read close enough, was talking about how men are afraid of high maintenance women who are all afraid to do stuff normally they would be doing.

Don't get men wrong, we want the fantasy, but we want our cake and eat it too, not just look at it.
Yes, but the Fantasy woman is a High Maintenance woman!

Your cake and eat it too is exactly right.

If you look at any of these women in these magazines, they are wearing a ton of make up. So much so, that they have to spray it on. And their hair? Takes like 2 hours to do.

Do you think they like Scarlett Johansen because she looks rugged, and real? Hmmmm.
I feel like you are confused.

The fantasy men want is the beautiful woman, who doesn't need to wear make-up, who acts "real" and does not pretend to be an untouchable queen.

I believe the objection is with the opposite - the woman who looks "real," wrinkles and overweight like you mention, but pretends to live the fantasy with tons of make-up, and a prim attitude.
