Talking Beauty or Brains? Women still Conflicted

LOS ANGELES (Reuters Life!) – Smart or thin? Rich or ugly?
Women still have a complex and contradictory relationship with their own image according to a poll released on Tuesday that found 25 percent of those questioned would rather win the "America's Next Top Model" TV show than the Nobel Peace Prize.
And although 75 percent of women surveyed said they'd be willing to shave their heads to save the life of a stranger, more than a quarter of those taking part admitted they would make their best friend fat for life, if it meant they could be thin.
As for that age-old dilemma of whether to marry for wealth or looks, half of the 18- to 24-year-olds questioned said they would marry an ugly man if he were a multimillionaire.
The poll for U.S. Television network Oxygen, which is targeted at young women, also found that 88 percent of 18- to 34-year-old women would happily give up their cell phone, jewelry and makeup to keep a friendship.
"This survey proves an interesting dissection of today's woman and how she relates her personal image with what she values in her life," said Dr. Jenn Berman, psychotherapist and judge of the upcoming new Oxygen series "Pretty Wicked."
"As shown in several results, women today are a complex combination of altruistic and materialistic, vain and insecure, loyal and self-serving. This survey highlights the dichotomy in all of us," Berman said.
More than 2,000 women aged 18-34 were interviewed for the poll.

perhaps its the age group they polled..I'd take an ugly man as long as he worked steadily wealthy or not, and as far as self image eh I was born ugly I go for brains lol

That's a good idea. I thought it too.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

that is way some gentlemen of means hide the wealth. And some people think it is only for taxes.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

They both fade. I haven't had a hair cut since my daughter was born 8 months ago...and two days ago I accidentally poured a bowl of Goldfish crackers for breakfast. That was a surprise on the first bite.
