Women slut shame women – or attractiveness?

Women do shame slutty women… but this study is highly flawed in the method.

Studying clothing as a proxy for behavior is based on a false belief.
“As predicted, both men and women gave less money to the models who were dressed provocatively.”

That’s not the same thing as behaviour, is it? Dressing feminine isn’t provocative.
Sexual jealousy needs to be measured in other ways, many of the biggest sluts dress like men, deliberately so women can’t detect them and men don’t suspect.

If they signalled visibly, they’d be less likely to get away with the deception of mate poaching, logically.
And higher testosterone (highly sexed) women prefer to dress like men
e.g. Amber Heard.

“The researchers noted that this is “consistent with our view that sexually-accessible women are perceived as more likely to cheat on mates or poach the mates of others.”
No? Your evidence doesn’t show that. Too many assumptions.
Erm, what about a study with men in suits? There are plenty of reasons to dress well. It isn’t usually about other people e.g. the cocktail dress. It could be to attract one person, including a spouse.

It’s easy to dismiss their non sequitur by glimpsing at history.

People used to dress better all the time, they were NOT more promiscuous.

The hippies dressed like shit.

Confounds:

Attractive people tend to be richer, another cause of jealousy.
More gender conforming people (feminine women, masculine men) tend to attract envy from the androgynous. Don’t cut down tall poppies for the bitter, encourage it.

“The results showed that women were considerably more likely to reject offers they deemed unfair, meaning they were willing to lose out on money just to punish their sexually accessible opponent.”
Plenty of women are jealous of a good figure.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Sorry for not being fat?

But where’s the data on punishing male promiscuity?
Married men don’t like being around such sluts with their wife.

Oh, that doesn’t make women the victims in PC narrative, so they don’t care.

On that page they also link a study showing short men are indirectly aggressive to taller, more attractive ones.

Male on male shaming is a thing.

Study it.

Attractive people are less promiscuous, stop basing your methods on false assumptions. Why eat from the whole buffet when you can just have the caviar?

Quality doesn’t want quantity, stop projecting your lust for them.

They also didn’t study the looks of the person rating the models.

They didn’t use male models. It’s weird this is allowed.

“This complements previous evidence that men and women are motivated to objectify sexualized women via different mechanisms”

Men would like to think naturally sexier women are available.

They’re not and especially not widely available . And even average clothes will still make them look sexy.

Any woman who’s worn a boring office uniform with a pencil skirt knows that.

If they studied attractive clothing against sexual availability, it wouldn’t point the way they think.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
