Naomi Wolf's Opinions

Agree
[The beauty myth] ranks women according to how they compare with an artificially, rather than biologically, established appearance standard. ... I contend that this obsession with beauty in the Western world—which has intensified in my lifetime—is, in fact. the last way men can defend themselves against women claiming power.

Research has shown, and it's my favorite statistic in misconceptions, is that the most erotic thing a man can do for a women is the dishes, is housework.
