What I was trying to point out is that the things that people select for might very well be things that we are socialised to select for, rather than things we would naturally select for.I think I've totally lost where this conversation was going. What were we discussing?
For example - the idea that we naturally look for the female shapes that are rammed down our throats by the society is kinda bunk when you consider ideals of female beauty in the past.
Or if you look at fashions of the past and what they sought to enhance/hide in order to make a person appear more attractive.
Going on the idea that our current perceptions of what is attractive in each gender is the absolute truth and 'the way things naturally are' is kinda risky given how much those perceptions have changed in the past. It seems kinda naive to not question why female bodies are so sexualized when male bodies are not. Don't you think it odd not to question why a womans worth to society is based almost purely on her looks when she might have just as much intellect and talent as any man?
