This cannot be true. They haven’t factored me into their comparison.

LOL. Not lesbians. At the risk of being arrested by the PC police, I will speculate that women are constantly comparing themselves physically to other women — they are more body-conscious than men by a long shot. So women are doing this to either confirm they look better than other women or to see if other women look better than them.

Fact is, women are jealous as sin of attractive women.

They aren't admiring them. They are hating on them.

Women look at other women more because they like to size up the competition. Hetero women don’t mind looking at or being touched by each other — quite unlike hetero men.

Also, women are more interesting to look at than men, aren’t they?

I guess Van Morrison had it about right in Wild Nights:

The wild night is calling.
And all the girls walk by
Dressed up for each other...

“They found women spent 61 percent of their time looking at the women in the pictures...[and] women’s eyes tended to roam around the whole figure.”

And here I thought I was a guy the whole time!

Yep. Some survey I saw not too long ago asked men and women to rate their looks as (1)more or less average, (2)worse than average or (3)better than average.

Among men, 80% picked average, 10% worse and 10% better. Among women, 10% picked average, 80% worse and 10% better.

It isn't reality, it is perception. Much like the American Idol crowd voting for Obama because they think he cares more about people like them. If you want somebody to care for you, hire a private nurse or get a dog.

Proves what...if you see a picture of Kate Middleton and hubby......of course a woman looks at Kate....but with no sexual connotations,.....the lovely clothes, her grace, etc...

Most testing is geared to produce a specific answer. We're not idiots..

men spend 53% of their time looking at women and 47% of their time looking at ...what ? their cars ? golf clubs ?

not to worry, i’m pretty sure i’m looking at a woman’s body 100% of the time and that makes me a ...lesbian ?

"This is counter-intuitive from a sexual perspective if you are thinking about desire"

Counterintuative from a Darwinian feminist perspective, but not from a rational conservative perspective. It all goes back to capitalistic desires - maximizing shareholder returns.

Young also women ogle themselves at every opportunity. If you mounted a mirror at street level on the side of a building in Manhattan, around 90% of the young women walking by would check themselves out. They wouldn’t use the mirror as a sly way to check out if any threats are walking behind them, they would just check out themselves.

indeed, my wife just said that it;s not true and thta checking out other women is just gross, her words.

Gowever she idd say what another freeper said and that was , women do look at other women to compare themselves, does she have nice hair, does she have a better body than I etc, does her clothes match , what showes does she have.

This article is all about the homosexual agenda, what it wants to do is have the idiot men go ah yea baby homo qomen but thsoe hollywood homo women are not what real homosexual women are all about.

Real homosexual women are ugly, overwight, look like men, pretend they;re men, many a time they do smell and they certainly have bitterness and anger to the world and they have to wear plastic strap ons during sex to play the role of a guy because nature made them a woman regardless of how many times these homo’s pretend they;re not a woman.

Some are, some aren't.

When I look at that picture of Raquel Welch from way back in the white bathing suit I am both admiring and envious. Don't hate her and don't want to have sex with her. Just admiring a beautiful woman.

Poorly done study. The sharper men in the study probably figured out that this was some kind of sex test, and decided that the best way to get done with it is to spend equal amounts of time on each photo. Either that, or they wanted to get done quickly.

Also, not much description is made of the types of women in the pictures. Old, young? Fat, skinny? Shapely? Homely? Degree of clothing?

The women would be less confirmed with being called a pervert. And, if the pictures look like the pictures in a “Soft Surroundings” or “Tall girl” catalogue, might have been used in the same way that the catalogue is used, checking out the clothes, NOT the women per se.

Different viewpoints, I guess. I don’t see women as threats or people I have to compete with. If a man is attracted to me he is. If he’s not he’s not. I’m not sure it’s related to what some other woman has that I don’t but more to the chemistry between a man and woman.

Yep.

But here’s something that lots of women won’t admit: This jealousy is a HUGE component of what drives the animus against Sarah Palin.

After the 2008 election, I had the dubious pleasure to sit in a room adjoining to a gaggle of gals, where I got to listen to successful, high-drive women rant about Palin. And the rants had NOTHING to do with her politics (or theirs).

No, the rants are about:

- she’s had five kids and she still has “that figure.”
- her shoes are nicer than their shoes. WTF is it with women and shoes? For chrissakes, I have two pairs of boots that I wear 300+ days a year - one pair for summer, the other for winter. The other X days per year, I might be wearing something more formal, for weddings, funerals, church, etc. But most of the time, it’s one of my two pairs of White’s.
- Her boobs are “too perky.” “She had to have a boob job.” “No, she had to have a reduction after five kids.” “No, she had to have them pulled up.” Cripes, make up their minds. Palin’s bustline looks nice. That’s the sum total of my opinion as a man.
- Her legs are too nice. Or her hemline is too high. They can’t decide which.
- She wears clothes that look too nice.
- Her teeth are too nice.
- Her husband is too ruggedly handsome.

On and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on.

End the insanity. Repeal the 19th Amendment, tell women to STFU and get back into the kitchen. They haven’t the personalities to deal with politics, and there’s no way in hell I want any woman near “The Button” that launches nukes.

Within 1/2 millisecond my ex-wife would spot,grade and categorize every woman in every room she ever walked into. If they were young and pretty(younger and prettier than her) the talons would be sharpened just in case.

The real b@tch was that she also kept one eye on me to see if anyone caught my attention and if she saw even one moment’s hesitation, I would pay for that “insult” for weeks. For a long time my friends thought I had a cervical neck problem because I would always walk around with my head and neck frozen in a forward position.

They are checking out clothes, hair style, shoes, accessories, crap like that. I have noticed this in lots of ladies myself. Guys will give a once over and move on, but many women take a little time and study.

Exactly. Everyone looks, it's just that women have a different reason for looking than men do.

Four-plus decades of rabid feminism have trained men to break from their natures and “don’t look, whatever you do!”
Conversely women are unafraid of the PC police.

Women Spend More Time Ogling Women

Several gals (and no men) have told me this over the years.

I know I have no trouble seeing the "I'm Up Here^" and "I Wish These Were Brains" tee shirts, but I don't seem to be able to catch the gals doin' it.

The gals also claim they dress to impress other women, and not to attract men, that's why you're not supposed to look if you're male.

If all this is true, why don't they seek out the blind guys to marry, then they won't have to fret about all these rules.
