Why are women allowed to have a long list of standards for men, but if a man has any standards for women he is sexist?

women always want a guy that is 6ft tall or over, makes good money, has own car own place etc. But if a man makes 1 demand like " want a woman that is not overweight" all of a sudden, he is trash. Women please explain this to me.

    Only some weird fringe would think that. IMHO men don't have enough standards in selecting the women they date. Every third posting here is from some guy who married a gold digger, a slattern, a cheater or a psychopath. So if men paid more, not less, attention to who they're getting involved with the world would be a better place.

    That’s basically an irrefutable point, but I’m sure you’ll get a lot of complaints for expressing it. “In an age of universal deceit, speaking the truth can be seen as a revolutionary act”...so you’re a ‘troublemaker’...LOL. My kind of people. Keep up the good work....

    Women can't accept that they are also sexist themselves. It's a pure case of narcissism. I also don't prefer fatties.

    Who is this entity that "allows".

    ... The pedestal still claims so many sacrificial victims. Very sad.

    I'll tell you why it's sexist, because men's standards are almost always solely to do with appearance (they'll say they want someone who's skinny, blonde, has big breasts, has no body hair, etc), whereas women's standards tend to be less shallow attributes (they'll say they want someone who's ambitious, won't cheat, has a good sense of humour, etc).

    Like ajtheactress said, people have always had personal preferences and they always will. We can't help it and that's fine. But it's how you choose to vocally express those preferences that can be problematic.

      Pretty funny comment because it's the polar opposite of the question being asked. Both are breath-takingly absurd.

    Allowed by whom? What does it matter what people think; they can't make you go out with anyone you don't want to.

    Because you are letting these bltches control you. Stop being beta and do what you want. I date women i think are acceptable to me and go on or pass mys standards. women can be retarded, you better run your own life or you will beta to infinity and beyond. ignore them and focus on the woman you want. i have much more life experience than you, i am almost 30 in 3 years and i lived it all. i broke crimes and did what i wanted, i have tons of experience. just listen to me its simple. stop being a crab it may be easier said than done but you have to control your thoughts to control yourself. just practice seriously bro. i went through it too, i am giving you information from my own experience in this. women like dudes who arent fruitcakes and can be their selves and not self controlled because you are afraid to be yourself and follow them like a dog

    look i cant go much into it , it just takes personl experience but this is the best way i can try to put it into words

    False premise.

    This isn't a gender thing.

    People have always had personal preferences, they always will.

    But anybody who body shames is immature and delusional. We all have faults.

    Nobody has to date somebody that doesn't fit their "preferences" but being a jerk about it isn't right.

      Another, false premise.

      Thanks for playing
