Women spend more time improving their looks than men do because society puts more pressure on women to be attractive. Women are largely valued more on their beauty than their personality or intelligence. If it were socially acceptable, and considered attractive, for women to have unwaxed eyebrows and legs I doubt any of them would spend the time to do it. Because generally, they are. ;) Which gender tends to spend a lot of money on cosmetics? Who ends up having more shoes? Who obsesses over matching an outfit and whether it makes them look "fat". Which gender is willing to go through pain to pluck eyebrows and have hair "waxed" off their legs? Society doesnt just THINK women are more obsessed with looks, they truly are. Who can spend just as much time looking at their muscles in the mirror or that new hairy face. Who goes to gym to work out (take a look at the board to see how many guys are into body building) and who is worried if they are good looking enough or if their sexual love-making is good enough or if their penis is long or too short. Both sexes are neck-in-neck with the acception that yes, women are more into clothing, hair and cosmetics because if we didn't you guys wouldn't quit whining. You made us what we are!

I'm kind of latina so why am I obsessed with visiting beauty websites for black women?

How can you be kind of latina? Either you are or you aren't.If you are obsessed with beauty sites for black women, it probably means you think they are beautiful. Maybe that is how you'd like to look or you identify with them, maybe you are attracted to them, or maybe you just think they are pretty.Or it could be the other way around. Maybe you think you're prettier than them and you go there to feel good about yourself in a strange way.

Why are women vulnerable in society?

That is a thing to think on.Why are women vulnerable in society?. The society only have the human beings.There are no aliens in the society,there are no animals in the society though women are vulnerable.Women live with us,among all of us,standing right at the side shoulder to shoulder. The women are vulnerable because Humans are acting like an animals.Everything starts from a human being and end with the death but leaving others influenced,others are left motivated to be that animal.A new animal comes after that. Vulnerability is what society have created.Women were never allowed to even come out the house but now they are standing where you are and that is the change that society not able to believe in.There are people in this society that are just mad.They think that women are slaves.They see women as an attractive show piece that is yours.This is not like that rather it is just opposite.Women among us are rising in every field just let them rise and love the women who really want to be yours. #RESPECT

Are you gay if you like a trans gender women?

I wouldn't think so. Like you said "transgender women". They look like women, act like women, sometimes even more feminine than women. If you like them, that means you're attracted to women. If you were gay and you liked men, I wouldn't think you'd go for a women or someone that looks, acts, and is a woman.

How do you get women to desire you if you are unnactractive?

Women are not as shallow as you think. If you can get into her heart she will desire you no matter what you look like. People pay too much attention to looks and forget that it is what is inside that counts. Even you do when you think that you are unattractive. When you see the beauty in you others will see it too; it's true. How to win her heart: Smile at her and be thoughtful and kind. Women like wittiness so think of clever things to say. Wink at her when she catches you looking. Be honest. Be a good friend. Look out for her interests. And above all, listen when she talks. Most men don't bother to listen to women and that is our pet peeve about them. As for the looks, the above answer is correct. Looks are not important to the majority of women.
