Now why should I trust you to know more about women than I do Quill? Laughing
Being one myself (unlike yourself) I KNOW why women (the majority) like to dress up and wear make up....and sorry to dampen your enthusiasm to look for ulterior motives, but we do it to look and feel good about ourselves.

There can be side effects in looking so damn fabulous, but if it draws men to us thus giving us power in that way, that says more about the men than the women. Razz

The knowledge is not limited to women, but to mankind.  So neither of us are gender-qualified experts.

You mention attraction of men, and that brings up sex.  Researchers have found that sexual attraction in men is direct and spontaneous...hence they are visual.  But for women, the attractor is to be desired:

Daniel Bergner wrote:Marta Meana brings up [one element of female sexuality], and which I think is very compelling, is this idea that the feeling of being desired is a very powerful one, a very electrical one. And I think at least at the fantasy level, that sense of being wanted, and being wanted beyond the man’s self-control is also really powerful.

This, the female sexuality, is more complex in that it necessarily involves the cognitive presence of an "other" person, who is needed to be the admirer.  Hence female porn takes the form of Harlequin novels, and not just pictures.  Female fantasy goes more by scripts, than simple visual queues.

This is probably an adaptive feature built into women for self-preservation, plus it dovetails with their need to attract a mate for procreation.  To accomplish their needs women become manipulative, in the sense that a scriptwriter becomes manipulative.  Women use their attractiveness.  But the goal is not just abstract attractiveness; to get it done, women must get "beyond the man’s self-control".  That's a need for power.  Men have the strength factor, but women need the attraction factor to really get the job done.  And by that, I mean POWER (manipulation of others).

So, a woman who dresses to the nines is looking for power.

I think you are over thinking it.
Basic instincts date back to when men dragged women into their caves to mate with, and whilst the woman looked for a strong man to mate with to have strong children the  man would sow his seeds as often as he could with as much variety as he could....probably because there is strength and power in numbers and he wanted as many in his clan as possible.

Nowadays society has changed but those basic instincts are still there buried beneath all the polite niceties that ensure people get the chance to cop off.

As for the dress and makeup....I think many woman can scare men when they look as if they are striving for perfection...(think Alexis Carrington in Dynasty) all red lips, high heels and shoulder pads can be a bit intimidating to men.
Beautiful women will often complain men don't approach them.

It's been said on this thread and I agree, men seem to show more appreciation for women who don't make as much effort rather than when she strives for perfection, so if a woman really used her looks for power.... she would bin the makeup and embrace the natural look. Laughing

I see you are agreeing with me. But we take it beyond merely, men want perpetual sex and women want a beast of burden. Delving more closely into it, women are not immediate and visual as are men. They seek to be assured that they are desired. They find they are empowered when they achieve that end. So with that goal in mind, they seek to be attractive, and thus empowered.

Any way you cut it, they are seeking to win, because that way lies power...power with men, power in competition with women, and power in all relationships. That's what success means in Darwin's terms.

Are they heck.....women (most of them anyway) just like to get dressed up and made up...
it's not a power thing, it's part of the ritual of going out.

It is.

Power dressing is a thing.

Shouting FACT doesn't make it so. Laughing
In any case you have misread what I said. Dressing nicely and applying make up is what most women do because they want to look and feel nice. I do it to please myself....as I suspect do most women.

Power dressing is another thing altogether.....and imo most women who dress this way do it because their job requires them to.

You keep quoting others to mask what YOU are thinking.

Do you think women are either dainty little flowers waiting to be plucked by big strong men who will adore them forever....or do you imagine women are all strong powerful ball breakers who use make up as war paint to ensnare weak willed men??

The truth is they are the extremes, and MOST modern women are neither....they just like to wear nice clothes and make up.tongue

Totally agree. I don't do the whole plastered make up look. Mascara always, lipstick most days, but not a big bright red. Gotta save that for a private audience or to make a statement.

I hate the plastered on look...I also hate foundation, it doesn't suit me and I think most women would look better without it....but it's a personal choice.
I would love to suit the red lipstick matching nails look....sadly I look more like Morticia than a sex goddess when I have tried to pull that one off. Shocked

The desire to reproduce is not a genuine "instinct", but rather it is a basic biological urge..
IT IS one of the basic definitions of being alive..

I'm quoting the words of others because they have done a lot more, and better thinking about the subject that have you.  And, BTW, why am I so important to you?  It's the theories of Daniel Bergner and Marta Meana that are confronting you.

The subject transcends your facile notions of "dainty little flowers" and "powerful ball breakers".  The theories of Bergner and Meana have dynamics, which you fail to grasp.  The female "will to be desired" is not a personification, but an instinct that takes many different forms in outward appearances.  Address yourself to that, and not your cartoon characters.

The 'will to be desired' places significance on an 'other' in the picture.  This means that women have need of a role and a script, because there needs to be a medium by which to express feminine motives.  Tracy Clark-Flory writes of Meana:

Tracy Clark-Flory wrote:At one point in the book, researcher Marta Meana shows you a pair of joke control panels — one with an on-off switch, the other with tons of knobs. These were meant to represent male and female desire. Is female sexuality really that much more complicated that male sexuality?

The 'love story' is perhaps the oldest and simplest of expressions of female desire, because it deals with the female need for desire.  Quite often it has a happy ending ("...and they lived happily ever after"), and sometimes it takes a tragic twist (For Whom the Bell Tolls).  The standard TV sitcom is a pejorative form of this format, inevitably ending with a feminine victory amid the stumbling, fumbling foibles of the male counterpart.  It is a comic play on female empowerment.

This is the same empowerment that we witness being sought in the way women act, including the way they dress.  Just as costumes and makeup would be props in a play, they are props in the scripts of women's lives.

In any case you have misread what I said. Dressing nicely and applying make up is what most women do because they want to look and feel nice. I do it to please myself....as I suspect do most women.

Power dressing is another thing altogether.....and imo most women who dress this way do it because their job requires them to.

The caplocks was for only emphasis, not shouting. Laughing Only one word was caplocked and that is usually my limit.

I'm a long way behind those who routinely use the upper case in their posts, sometimes for full sentences.

The term 'power dressing' was coined for a reason, it's not a myth.

Beauty aids (in its many guises) confer power in the boardroom and bedroom.

This is why some feminists refuse the whole high heel, lipstick, big hair thing.

But hey it all boils down to opinion and personal preferences, we all do our own thing, no hard and fast rules.

This is a forum, where hopefully people share their own opinions and views.....you entered the thread so I was polite enough to read and answer your posts...that's the interest I am showing, nothing more nothing less.

I really don't care about you, Syl...nor your bony arse or ante-gum chin.  Stop trying to lecture people on what they should write.  I would prefer you not "read and answer" my posts because, frankly, I've never know you at add anything of value to any discussion.

Has anyone posted these two?

I did, tho my image was a set of 6 ladies.

You're right, those two are VERY similar but they have stiff competition, Quill. x lol!

Yes of course it's very bad, Nicko, what's wrong with you? Shocked
The UV rays from the suntan will do all kinds of havoc to your dewy skin.
And pale lippy is so last year - cerise or fuschia would suit you much better, Nicko, go for it and don't forget to post a pic, for compliments. tongue

OK...I HEAR YOU. Razz

Some feminists like to wear makeup and dress nicely, they are not all burning their bras and ultra plain looking.
I still see a huge difference in power dressing and women who wear make up and dress up.......the first MAY have an agenda, the second is just doing her own thing....but looking attractive whilst she does it. Cool

I answer many if not most posts "in depth". It's not always about you. While you are a groomer, looking to curry favor of others; I am an analyzer, looking for deeper meaning or cause in things.

The real difference is that you are one of those who all too quickly turns any difference into a personal assault. Perhaps you ought to look into that "in depth".

Yes you do. From a superficial nod on a thread about a cute dog, to a gathering with your tag-teamers, you are always building your alliances. That is your main purpose here. I enjoy your chatty small talk at times, but when you gather for a growl you can be quite vicious. And you don't build that in a day...I see you grooming others for gang warfare all the time.

I admit that a lot of my posts are about boring subjects and can be far too tedious. But they are meant for people who are interested. Others should skip them. Some posters like "in-depth" discussions, others put them aside.

See? You are on a rant right now. This whole conversation started about an innocent topic of psychology....perhaps boring, but no acrimony. But you've turned it into a rant, because I presume you don't like the subject and me.

Perhaps you might take a look at a thread about "Trump throws Latino voters under the bus...", in the US Politics section, and see how to avoid turning a discussion into acrimony. You sure are not talking about psychology now.

You are wrong. There are people I enjoy chatting too and others not so much, I am not  'building alliances' I am merely responding to threads, posts and posters who I find interesting, that's my main purpose here....I actually enjoy forums.

Name ONE person you think I have 'groomed' on here. I (and no doubt they) will be very interested in your reply.

I admit I can give as good as I get if someone is targeting me or bullying others...it's usually in response to attacks....I don't think that's a bad thing tbh.

I'm not ranting, I am replying to you, surely you don't think you can insult and criticise without response...and if you read through this thread alone you will see that you indeed did start with the insults..
I find the psychology of humans to be very interesting, I'm not an expert and don't pretend to be, but when discussing certain aspects of behaviour I prefer to discuss it with people who are offering their OWN opinions not forever falling back on literary works of distinction....which I think is what started your huff off in the first place.

I don't mind you at all Quill.....so don't put yourself down for my benefit. Razz

So why the disclaimer if you are not trying to minimize yourself, and groom others into thinking you are fair and balanced? Why do you criticize me for bringing in the words and ideas of others who have thought and researched in the field:

I would say I am interested in psychology, and I have gotten over the need to apologize for it. I bring in the ideas of others, and in that context I shrink myself into the picture...as just a conversant, not an expert. What's wrong with bringing in the words and ideas of others...you seem to have a particular dislike for that.

But I"m not always looking over my shoulder to see how I look. That seems to be primary with you:

Syl wrote:Odd that since I joined here you have gone out of your way to communicate by answering in depth my threads and posts then.

You even attribute that to me. Why are you suddenly talking about me, and no longer about psychology? Is it because you are uncomfortable with conversing with experts? Are you not transferring your intent to me?

Relax.

Thanks Jules,,,ditto.

It's not a personality clash though. If someone makes an accusation against someone they should be prepared to back it up.
He has said my main purpose here was to build alliances and groom people.....I am interested to know who.

I'm sure Quill will have the courage to answer.

Just to refresh Quills memory....these are comments he has made on this one thread alone of accusing me of 'grooming' other posters.
I object to this as it's 100% untrue.
He is of course entitled to his opinion, so as he is so convinced I would like to know which  posters I am luring into my wicked web.  Rolling Eyes



While you are a groomer.....

I see you grooming others for gang warfare all the time.

you are always building your alliances. That is your main purpose here.

Me neither. A woman I used to work with thought he was the perfect man....to me is a bit weird and not my type....he is very small in stature.

My heartthrob years ago was Richard Gere. He actually called into the pub I worked in when he was starring in Yanks.

Obviously I missed him....it was before I started. Rolling Eyes

Now why should I trust you to know more about women than I do Quill? Laughing
Being one myself (unlike yourself) I KNOW why women (the majority) like to dress up and wear make up....and sorry to dampen your enthusiasm to look for ulterior motives, but we do it to look and feel good about ourselves.

There can be side effects in looking so damn fabulous, but if it draws men to us thus giving us power in that way, that says more about the men than the women. Razz

The knowledge is not limited to women, but to mankind.  So neither of us are gender-qualified experts.

You mention attraction of men, and that brings up sex.  Researchers have found that sexual attraction in men is direct and spontaneous...hence they are visual.  But for women, the attractor is to be desired:

Daniel Bergner wrote:Marta Meana brings up [one element of female sexuality], and which I think is very compelling, is this idea that the feeling of being desired is a very powerful one, a very electrical one. And I think at least at the fantasy level, that sense of being wanted, and being wanted beyond the man’s self-control is also really powerful.

This, the female sexuality, is more complex in that it necessarily involves the cognitive presence of an "other" person, who is needed to be the admirer.  Hence female porn takes the form of Harlequin novels, and not just pictures.  Female fantasy goes more by scripts, than simple visual queues.

This is probably an adaptive feature built into women for self-preservation, plus it dovetails with their need to attract a mate for procreation.  To accomplish their needs women become manipulative, in the sense that a scriptwriter becomes manipulative.  Women use their attractiveness.  But the goal is not just abstract attractiveness; to get it done, women must get "beyond the man’s self-control".  That's a need for power.  Men have the strength factor, but women need the attraction factor to really get the job done.  And by that, I mean POWER (manipulation of others).

So, a woman who dresses to the nines is looking for power.

Women can be quite competitive with other women when it comes to dressing up. We dress for ourselves first and foremost, and if that is attracting men, so be it. As Syl says, that's not our problem. But...most women don't actually dress 'for men'. The exception are those women who are dictated to by their men in how they dress. No man on earth would tell me how to dress. I dress for me. For what suits me and what makes me feel comfy. If I don't feel comfortable in something, I won't wear it. By comfortable, I mean at ease...not in like...beige elasticated. geek
