11. Did I suggest -- ever -- that this was "meaningless?"

My only point is that the vast majority of men are not as fussy as some seem to think they are.

They're far more interested in the reproductive imperative.

If fashion never changed from this day forward, they wouldn't give a shit. They would not "demand" new hairstyles, new fashions, short skirts, long dresses, low cut, high cut, pink nail polish, shiny red lipstick, new and different eye shadows, etc. They wouldn't care if there was never another Fashion Week in NY, Milan, London or anywhere, ever again.

Most -- save those who make money off appealing to this wish to decorate oneself in new and different ways -- wouldn't even notice.

Example:

Men don't notice women in heels
Women sacrificing comfort to wear high heels could be wasting their time because men do not even notice, a study claims.


I haven't been to the men's group, don't feel like going there.... and I came to this thread from the latest page, thinking it was GD--so this will be my last comment on the topic.
