“In the past, a woman could look at a man and say, ‘Well, that’s just who I am.
And I’m not just talking about being feminine. “
But, she says, “I know that it is not a natural way of being.
And I’m not just talking about being feminine.
I’m talking about a woman having this confidence that she can be who she is without feeling like she’s being forced to be like a man.
“The research, which will be published in the journal Psychological Science, was conducted by the Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
They surveyed more than 2,000 adults and found that women and men who were attracted to men were more likely to report feeling that they were physically or emotionally unattractive, which made them more likely than men to experience psychological distress.
“It can be something else. “
Men have a strong need for the masculine form, but it doesn’t have to be one that is always defined by a woman’s looks,” says Dr. Jennifer C. Siegel, an associate professor of psychology at the UNC School of Medicine.
“It can be something else.
A woman’s body is not necessarily going to be the only thing that we see.”
This isn’t the first time researchers have looked at the sexual attraction of men and women, says Siegel.
In a 2013 study, she and her colleagues asked about 1,200 men and 1,400 women how they rated their physical attractiveness, and how many people in their group said they had an attraction to a man who was more physically attractive than a woman.
Those who rated themselves as more attractive to men tended to be less sexually attracted to women, while those who rated the opposite tended to have a greater attraction to men.
But that study, which was published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, was based on people’s responses to photographs of people they knew or loved.
“We didn’t see a significant difference between men and woman in their preference for men and their preference to have more sexual contact with them,” Siegel says.
The research was based largely on what people did with photos of men in their own social groups.
But it did find that there were other factors that could be at play.
“Our findings suggest that we might be less inclined to consider a man attractive if he is more attractive,” Sollowins says.
“There are other ways in which we can consider a guy attractive that don’t rely on his looks.”
“If we look at what is perceived to be attractive and then look at how it actually manifests, then we might see that there are some other cues that may be associated with being perceived as attractive,” she adds.
In other words, she notes, it’s important to be aware of your own body image before you start looking for cues about who you are.
“So, it seems that there is a lot of opportunity to explore whether there are different ways to see yourself,” Sissels says.
