And now we're swimming in the waters of gender stereotyping *Theme from Jaws*

I think it's very narrow to say that all women are completely vain and care more for their apperance than, say, things that actually matter. Of course, the majority certainly do (particularly my generation), but not all of us. Maybe it's because I've grown up surronded by men but shoe shopping and fancy dresses and all that other bollocks don't interest me. I have some makeup and a hair straightener. I'll use them when I need to look formal. I have about three dresses and three pairs of shoes. I don't read fashion magazines, or any magazine aimed at women. I'd rather watch something on the crime channel then the latest Twilight movie or what have you.

I think these kind of women put so much focus on outer beauty because they don't have anything else going for them. It's apparent that they're not very smart otherwise they wouldn't be so vain. They can't think for themselves either, they need the media to tell them what colour to dye their hair, which make-up brands to use, how to wipe your ass and so on. Why think when someone else can do it for you?

Luckily, not all of us are like that. As far as the facebook photo comments are concerned, that just a weird method of cheering someone up, I guess.

Hmmm, don't really care.

I love women, especially the beautiful ones.

What makes a woman beautiful, in your opinion? And I hope that doesn't sound accusatory, I'm just wonderin'.

Its part of their DNA/natural instinct. They need to reproduce, hence looks are important.

I too see the problem with women wanting to be attractive.

Im pretty sure he didn't mean ALL women. But imo it still should be considered a problem if MOST women are acting that way and from my personal experience most of them do.

Now as for what everyone else is talking about, women don't dress up for men.
Women usually dress up mostly for other women.

Men appreciate it, but all the label talk (Gucci, Prada, etc) and the High Heeled shoes and the huge obsession with bags and stuff, thats for other women. Women like to stunt on each other, they like to be the woman that other women talk about.

Not all women are like this, but most of the ones I know are or at least can get that way depending on the situation.
I think you are only part right. Me and my best girl dress up for the fella's not the bitches. We spend time on our appearance to ensure we will be the center of attention when we're on the dance floor, but yea we also want to rub it in other girls' faces when we're the ones surrounded by dudes and they are over in their corner coming up with a slutty idea on how to steal the male attention. Its very satisfying for some reason.

I grew up around guys. I'm a total tomboy, but I'm also a girly-girl. I love guys and I don't play well with other girls. I love to go camping and wrestle around but my hair is done up and I've got pretty bows in it. I love muddin' on 4-wheelers and big ass trucks I need a ladder to get into but I spent an hour getting ready for it. I like climbing trees but I'm climbing it in heels and manicured nails.

I watch wrestling, I'm the first at the bar on UFC PPV nights and the loudest, drunkest trash talker of the whole place. I watch baseball, soccer, and I love getting defensive about my favorite football teams. I love getting trashed off my ass and taking everyone's money in a game of darts or pool.

I've always been like that. When I was little I went around climbing trees, making mud pies, riding my bike in my Sunday dresses and frilly socks double daring any boy I'd eat a worm before he did.

I don't see a problem with wanting to look good. You won't get a man if you're ugly and that's the great thing about being a girl. If you're ugly, make up and hair dye make you pretty and the boys will come a' runnin'.

And you're comment about not being smart is a very ignorant thing to say.

But anyway, OP, her friends were just trying to be nice and cheer her up without bringing attention to her asthma attack which obviously she recovered from well.

Earlier in the day (before the photo of her was taken) she had suffered a really bad asthma attack and was rushed to the hospital. She recovered and is good-to-go now. She snapped a photo and put it on her Facebook. Apparently not a lot of her friends knew about this attack and the photo was a surprise...but not too much of a surprise as comments flooded into her page( all by her female friends) about how gorgeous, hot, and sexy she looks in the photo while she is still hooked up to the machine and has tubes running up her nose, etc.

I know women are vain and obsessed with looks (more so then men). The big purses, the constant need to comment on every girl that always by, etc. But this takes the cake. The girl was pretty close to being on death's bed, recovers, takes a photo of the experience (for whatever reason) and posts it online (once again for whatever reason) and the most people have to say is she is sexy? Why are women so obsessed with looking good all the time despite things being more important?
One simple sentence. Becuase men are shallow. Close thred.

Oh, there's definetly nothing wrong with looking pleasant, but it's kind of off-putting when it's all you care about. I like looking nice, but I'd rather a fellow chase me because of my personality, not my make up. As for the 'not very smart comment', it's just my opinion. I don't understand why appearance should be a top priority when there are so many, ridiculously more important things to be worried about in the world. Maybe unintelligent wasn't the way to phrase it, perhaps 'completely and utterly self-absorbed'? I'm not implying you're like that at all, just those kind of girls.
