Female Imposed Sexual Standards Are More Responsible for Female Sexual Comformity

Contrary to what the feminist movement will tell you, men are not the source of most of the pressure women feel when trying to meet cultural beauty standards. Other women are the main conformity police for how women dress not men according to the latest research. In the following article from the NY Times highlighting the research it states:

"The existence of female competition may seem obvious to anyone who has been in a high-school cafeteria or a singles bar, but analyzing it has been difficult because it tends be more subtle and indirect (and a lot less violent) than the male variety. Now that researchers have been looking more closely, they say that this “intrasexual competition” is the most important factor explaining the pressures that young women feel to meet standards of sexual conduct and physical appearance."
