[Given my logic, I should be swamped with men.
And, given your logic, are you?
Well then, by your own admission you are not in the position to *know* the experiences of plain, non-slender women in the dating pool.
[From my own observations and experience, we may not be *swamped* like a beauty such as yourself, but we are not doing too badly, so your sympathy is misplaced.
[Now, sympathy *should* be given to short men who seem to get it coming and going. They are less likely to get married(-7%) and suffer a penalty due to their height in wages(-15%).
[(By contrast a tall woman is -5% as likely to get married as an average or small sized woman.)
No, the cultural expectation was that women would provide materially ONLY within the home. It was considered shameful for women to have to work outside the home, and considered extremely peculiar for a woman to WANT to work outside the home--at least, the literature of the times that I have read indicates these beliefs as pervasive throughout US culture.
You seriously think men usually feel degraded after having sex? Y'know, neither of us are men. Maybe the men on this message board could chime in and clear this up for me. If anybody's interested in responding: do men, generally speaking, find sex degrading?
Well, TB...mindlessly repeating something over and over doesn't make it true, I'm afraid, which is all you're doing. It would be much more convincing if you had as many reputable sources supporting your claim as there are out there that show that there is an income disparity between men and women.
