Would You Prefer Brains Or Beauty Or Friendship?
Last week, we asked you whether you’d want to be called a slut or fat. More of you picked slut over fat (1,573 vs. 689). Obviously, perceived promiscuity is a less hurtful label to Frisky readers than assaults on our appearance, even if we’re playing into archaic ideals. But when it’s a choice of brains versus beauty, women are still conflicted, according to a an Oxygen network poll of more than 2,000 women aged 18 to 34.
This study points out that women today can be a mixture of “altruistic and materialistic, vain and insecure, loyal and self-serving,” said Dr. Jenn Berman, a psychotherapist and judge of Oxygen’s “Pretty Wicked.” Basically, we’re complex. [Reuters]
