    I believe studies have been conducted which show that men of basically all races, except Africans themselves, tend to rate African women as being less objectively attractive than those of other races.

    On the flip side of that, African men tend to be rated as being more attractive than men of other races by women regardless of their race.

    The suggested reason for this, IIRC, was that African peoples tend to carry more testosterone than other races on average. This results in their men being perceived as being "manlier" than the norm, but, unfortunately, simply happens to have the same effect on their women as well.

    Go figure.

    I'll see if I can't dig up a link.
    Here you go.

    Why are Black Women Rated Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women, But Black Men Are Rated Better Looking Than Other Men?

    Africans on average have higher levels of testosterone than other races, and testosterone, being an androgen (male hormone), affects the physical attractiveness of men and women differently. Men with high levels of testosterone have more masculine features and are therefore more physically attractive. In contrast, women with higher levels of testosterone also have more masculine features and are therefore less physically attractive. The race differences in level of testosterone can therefore potentially explain why black women are less physically attractive than women of other races, while (net of intelligence) black men are more physically attractive than men of other races.
    Take it for what it's worth.

    I would suggest that that may be the kind of black women you may be exposed to.

    The losers in the interracial dating/marriage game of musical chairs are black women and Asian men.

    I've been on this forum for 8 years and have seen nothing to base your feeling on. DP members are generally indifferent to supportive of interracial couples.

    I was speaking strictly of physical beauty. Once they speak, most of the ones I find physically attractive become ones I wish not to know. This has to do with politics and education.

    And that study is not worth crap. First of all, how did the researcher compile the data sample. In other words it's practically impossible to examine every black women, so they had to pick some. How did they pick them?

    Next of all, the study is based on an individual's perception of attractiveness. I could see no objective criteria established for measuring attractiveness.

    As far as that testosterone crap goes, did they actually do a study where they measured women's testosterone level and then correlated that to physical attractiveness. Not only that, but even if they did, testosterone levels will probably vary in a single person depending on when the measurement was made.

    I call BS!

    For me I have had that experience with all races. It's not confined strictly to black women.

    I assume they would have used random sampling.

    It seems unlikely that researcher bias against blacks could have been at play. If it had, black men would have not have recieved such high rankings.

    Next of all, the study is based on an individual's perception of attractiveness. I could see no objective criteria established for measuring attractiveness.
    There are actually plenty.

    Science Of Beauty: 4 Physical Traits That Help Define Female Facial Attractiveness (VIDEO)

    Even physical attractiveness can be scientifically measured these days.

    Frankly, even if that were not the case, the fact of the matter remains that just about everyone in the groups they selected obviously perceived black women to be less attractive, where the opposite was true of black men.



    As far as that testosterone crap goes, did they actually do a study where they measured women's testosterone level and then correlated that to physical attractiveness. Not only that, but even if they did, testosterone levels will probably vary in a single person depending on when the measurement was made.

    Ummm... Are you really questioning the link between "masculine" features and the "male" sex hormone?

    Yes. Too much testosterone can cause men to grow breasts. Hormone systems are incredibly complicated and don't follow linear easy to understand scaling.

    You are assuming that. Where does it say how they were chosen?

    It seems unlikely to you, that doesn't mean it's true. What if the researcher had a thing for black men? We don't know. Over and above that, bias may not have been the thing that caused the examination of a faulty sample. The person may not have been using good judgement.

    Quote Originally Posted by Gathomas88 View Post

    So? Where does it say they were used in this research?

    And again, my problem is that there is no mention as to how the groups where chosen.

    I never measured it. And you have put forward no research where they actually measured women's testosterone levels and then saw how that correlates with physical attractiveness. So yeah, I'm questioning it. Is there a problem with that?
