You're back! So you've read it and you're ready to go out and make sure you are living up to all 8 things that men will always find attractive in women! Well, stop. If this article didn't outrage you like it did me, please continue reading and try to understand why this is one of the most sexist articles I've ever read. (I don't know what I expected when I read the title...)
1) Wide Hips
Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do here if you don't have wide hips. I know. Sucks, right? Guess you'll just have to sit down and accept that virtually no guy is going to find you attractive now. "Since we men are all about putting our seed in fertile ground..." Eskil really hits the nail on the head here. So just know that, if you don't have wide hips, you're useless to a man and should probably just go away. For ladies who have this one down, let's move on to the next point.
2) Big, Full, and Red Lips
Ladies, we love our red lipstick, don't we? Well, now we know for sure that men love it, too! Phew... I was always very worried about that one. And you know what else? Full lips are a sign of good genetic health and, as we already know, men are really attracted to genetic health. But we're not done. Our good friend Eskil goes on to say, in a few more words than this, that we should be careful with that red lipstick. It makes us look like we're asking for it. Wow, thanks, friend. I'll make sure to wear different lipstick now in hopes that someone won't try to rape me because of it.
3) Slim Waists
This one is one of my favorites. Basically, if you're not stick thin, men won't find you attractive. Hi, ladies, I'm definitely not stick thin and I'm doing just fine currently! Eskil really makes this one sound like common sense but I wasn't aware that I should be trying to have a healthier body for men instead of myself. Once again, our good friend Eskil has come to the rescue with some knowledge.
4) Maternal Instinct
If you don't want to be with me because I don't have maternal instincts... Well, that's fine. But Eskil, here. Wow. He really goes to town on this one. First he says feminists are repulsive because apparently we don't have qualities like empathy, kindness, and warmth. Someone please find this guy and explain feminism to him. We're pretty empathetic. Maybe we aren't always kind and warm but, Eskil, you just told us that wide hips and slim waists are the only thing we should be sporting and that red lipstick will get us raped. Are you really that surprised that we're mean and cold towards you? Let's be real.
Oh, man... This one. First of all, you're right Eskil. I don't like feeling "above" my man. I like feeling equal to him. (Which is what feminism is about in case nobody has explained that to you yet.) Sorry but I'm not going to "submit" to you just so you can keep your feeling of masculinity and entitlement. I will be equal with you, though.
6) Ample Breasts
I swear these just keep getting worse, ladies. This one made me laugh the most because men really don't understand. Like at all. Those "ample breasts" that men are so drawn to are the cause of women's back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, chafing and rashes, limited activity possibilities, and an overall feeling of insecurity. I'm so happy that seeing a woman suffer from things like this turns you on, Eskil.
7) Big Asses
He mentions Kim Kardashian. That is all.
Eskil, Eskil, Eskil... I am... not surprised at all about this one. "You'd better have big eyes, a small nose, a small chin, and big lips if you want to get yourself some action." I keep typing something out to say about this one and then erasing it because I just don't know how to respond. Also, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, Eskil. But nice try.
Well, ladies. I hope your upset. Our good friend Eskil here just objectified women, victim blamed, and played on every insecurity a woman could be struggling with. Good job, Eskil. You got your point across. You're an asshole.
