Ladies: Being Sexy Is about More Than Just How You Look

Sometimes it gets really boring reading about corrupt liberals and wishy-washy Republicans.

I’ll even admit that I just spent the last 15 minutes reading “10 Beauty Moves Guys Find Sexy,” just because I can’t stand the thought of blogging about:

  • Obama’s typical wordplay to get what he wants, this time to rationalize his decision to aid Libya’s war without congressional approval
I’m not saying those issues aren’t important or that they’re not actively contributing to the ultimate fall of America, which could be much closer than we think if we don’t start behaving better than bratty two-year-olds.

I’m just saying that sometimes a blogger needs a break. So ladies, this one’s for you: Stop being stupid! And men, stop smirking: You can be ridiculous as well.

While there are plenty of areas that both sexes could improve on, I’m referring specifically to the pains women take to conform to some silly, media-created ideal.

Not only is straightening our hair, caking on makeup and spending soak-sweat hours at the gym a lot of work, it’s also a lot of money. And for what? Sleep deprivation and debt?

No thanks.

Every woman has some feature she doesn’t like about herself: Her nose, her hips, her “thunder thighs” as someone near and dear to me calls them. Personally, I’m not always a fan of my short torso or the indent where my hips and legs meet.

OK. So we don’t meet Hollywood’s standard of perfection. But neither does Hollywood. Beauty products, photo-shopping and angling create much of those star’s appeal.

So here’s the thing: While I don’t think there’s anything wrong with dressing to impress or accentuating certain features, guys are going to notice girls no matter what we do or don’t do. And no matter what we do or don’t do, we’re not ever going to fit every single man’s fantasy stats, which makes sense since everybody has different tastes.

Besides – cheesy as it might sound – good, old-fashioned confidence is exceedingly sexy. And believe it or not, you can’t buy that at the gym or down the makeup isle.

So stop being silly and work with what you have going for you… naturally.
