^ Don't be petty. If you're going to make judgments based on gross generalizations about how "all men" behave, we're allowed to point out that your definition of "all men" is very narrow and short-sighted. I'll quote you again:
All we care about is women's approval. All we do, all we say, is all calculated to make sure girls like us. Why do you think all men have this obsession with being alpha males ? It's because we're told that's what women approve of. And we worry about our appearance too, a lot.
All men. We. I'd still disagree with your points if you were saying, "Most men only care about women's approval" or "A typical man always performs to attract women," because they aren't true. I listed many other things that men care about, because so many interactions can't be reduced to the attractions between men and women. Even in the case of makeup, there are many reasons why people can wear makeup that have nothing to do with attracting someone else.
When I dress in a suit and tie, I'm doing a lot of things that don't involve attracting women. Partly I just have a desire to look spiffy. Partly, I am meeting the expected dress code of an occasion. Partly, I feel more savvy socially when I'm in a suit. Your explanation excluded all of these possibilities: "All we care about is women's approval."
My post was replying to someone who was talking about each gender trying to appeal to the other in terms of appearance, and attractiveness, not acceptance in the workplace or in university.
Do you think that examples more relevant to appealing to others don't exist? Oh, they do. And from the practice of "negging" (people giving mild negative reinforcement to their partners in order to make them anxious and compliant) to all the examples I gave that actually do pertain to dating, I don't think you can question that women get plenty of negative attention. That goes counter to what you were trying to suggest: that men receive more negative judgments, and thus equality in wearing make-up would mean that women would actually be judged less.
Of course men get judged on more than their appearance. However, you have no grounds to claim that men get judged more.
EDIT: Yes, you did claim that.
But men have a wider range of things that we get judged on.
