you don't know the context of the question. we were discussing something similar in my research methods psychology class a couple weeks ago. we were discussing when in a lifepsan society sees men and women as most attractive and why.

There was actually a study just released on this very question that has been in the news, so perhaps it was just a topical discussion. (The response by men of all ages was 20, btw.)

I totally agree #6. It seems like the question was asked just to try to make some people look bad. Why is it relevant at all, no matter what the discussion is about? It's a subjective question with no correct answer. (Which begs the question, why would a study like this even have been paid for???)

116. Not everything needs to be measurable to be discussed. there are a few different trains of thought, you are thinking strickly positivistically (google positivism) but, you can measure the public perception of beauty. its called statistics. doesnt mean all 20 year old women are attractive to all men, it means that statistically men rate 20 year old women higher visually than at any other age.

129 - I'm just so tired of society's focus on the attractiveness of women, as if whether or not we are attractive is the only thing about us that matters. It doesn't seem that a discussion like that - in CLASS no less - is helping us to move society towards enlightenment. (Why the focus on women, also? What about at what age men become attractive??) However, it's true that I don't know the full context as to why this question was asked in class. This was just my gut reaction.

129 Hey now, although I agree with you, no one in this scenario even hinted at the suggestion that attractiveness is the only thing that matters in regards to women.

No, and I did not say that anyone stated or hinted that. :) I only said that society's focus on women's attractiveness makes it seem as if that's the only thing that matters with women. It bothers me... although I must admit I did laugh heartily at 26's comment, ha ha!
