There is a fundamental difference in the sexual market value of men and women. In most cultures, the sexual market value of men determines how successfully men can offer themselves to obtain sex and love. The sexual market value of women, on the other hand, determines, in most cultures, how successfully women can offer themselves to not just obtain sex and love, but also economic and social resources .
Thus, preserving sexual market value is more crucial to women than it is to men, and because the market value of female sexuality clearly declines as women age , women have always been more concerned than men with preserving it. Which is why there is more cosmetic industry for women than men, and more fashion, and more dieting.
There are also political agendas that aim to make the world a better place for females who have declined in sexual market value, or who have never had much of it.
Convinced followers of such agendas include aging ex-wives who have been divorced by their husbands who developed a preference for a younger female . How unfair!
Or less attractive females who have been promised lifelong bliss by a man but then were abandoned after about a month of sexual consummation. How unfair!
Mankind is on the brink of modes of production that allow women to look much younger until well after menopause.
Many of the technologies are simple, and many of them have been around for a number of years. However, the impact they have on human, especially female, perception of reality is delayed.
Sexual attractiveness, of course, depends mostly on a person’s face. More than 90 percent of all the negative effects of aging on the face can be controlled by the following measures: Botox treatment from the early 20s onward, facelifts, and sun avoidance. Among creams, some sun protection is all that is needed.
Combined with good dentistry, the treatment of visible skin veines, and non-aggressive cleansing, the preservation of a youthful face will work even better.
To maintain a youthful figure, females who can afford it should avoid own pregnancies. They do enormous harm to female beauty and female sexual market value. The right of couples, married or not, to contract surrogate mothers, is advantageous to rich and poor women.
Age identification is age discrimination. It works strongly against the sexual market value of females beyond a certain age, even if that age is not visible in a female’s face or on a female’s body.
Just as the omission of race specifications in passports has helped against race discrimination, the omission of age specifications in all personal documents reduces age discrimination. Once a person has reached legal age, this shall be noted (undated) in personal identification papers. Beyond that, governments and other administrative units, and just about everybody else, do not need to know anything about a person’s age. Citizen identification can easily be achieved through genetic markers.
