Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
onto the good stories...
Of course men experience issues of feelings not attractive or up to some "standard of attraction," and it certainly it effects their mental health or sense of self too. It's ludicrous to suggest that it's explicitly a female issue. But anyone who wants to argue that these problems for men exist on the same scale as they do for women is just willfully ignoring reality.

But seriously, I actually think what's weird about our cultural standards of attraction and beauty are that it's not that physical features DON'T matter, it's just that different ones matter for different people and the media and popular culture rarely recognize that fact. The day that Cosmopolitan magazine decides to do a lineup on the male celebrities with the nicest hands is the day I buy stock in Hearst.

And yes, the patriarchy, if you will, is about power, is about the powerful keeping/growing what they have.
What Courtney alludes to is important, men's magazines are about being manly, when they show us athletic, powerful and successful people and talk about getting there that is the goal. Women's magazines tend to be about how to be attractive to men, how to be what men want.
And that's what started this whole derail; Archie telling Amy to change her appearance so she'd be more attractive to men.
