    Re the “beauty perception” experiment — why did someone think it made sense to ask only FEMALE respondents what an attractive woman looks like (yes I read the article — still makes no sense)? If it’s all about “pressures” from beauty standards, how is this informative except in regard to pressures that are imposed by women themselves? Pretty sure that wasn’t what the authors were thinking about. Now if they had asked women AND men, it could have been quite interesting to compare the results between the two groups.
