Men’s Health Publishes Article That Offends Both Men and Women

English: This is the 2010 September cover for ...

About a week ago, Men’s Health published an article on findings from the Journal of Sex Research on the qualities that men look for in women.

Here they are:

1. Laughs at their jokes

2. 2 – 4 years younger

3. Smile a lot

4. Bigger breasts

5. Long legs

6. Own career and money

7. Small feet

8. Educated

9. Wears red

10. Narrow hips

11. Brown hair

I was happy to see that women who are educated and have careers made the list. The rest of the qualities sound very superficial.

I have read comments on the article on several websites, and was surprised at how many people, men and women, criticized the list of ideal qualities as shallow. Several people actually wrote that these qualities are useful only if you want someone to look at all day, and that traits such as kindness, generosity, intelligence, and honesty, which make for a better relationship and quality of life, didn’t make the cut.

The detractors give me hope!
