    That was a reaction to the original post, not your post.

But real men don't like women who are that skinny.

    It's sort of a ping-pong of expectations which I am sure that men also experience, but it would seem like women experience it on a broader range of issues. Another one might be the idea of a strong female boss; she's strong, experienced and intelligent, but also a shrew and a $#@!. Again, this is also women labeling other women.

    Ignore it, men do and we still find women and have friends. IMO, most of the fashion rules and do's and don'ts for women are for other women.
    Men just aren't that fussy.

    This is pretty much what I was going to add. Yes, everyone agrees that these contradictory and confusing "rules" and judgments are applied to both sexes, by both sexes, but - generally speaking - men do not care...either about what others think about them, or what others think about others. They find attractive or off-putting what they, as individuals, find attractive or off-putting, and don't worry so much about what others are thinking and saying.
