Why are girls expected to look pretty all the time?

Girls are expected to look neat and perfect even when they are doing sports and in every situation. Boys don't have to go through this, and won't be judged if they sweat or smell, unlike girls. I find this really unfair, why does this happen?

Only if you let it happen. Real men don't expect perfection. Superficial people end up alone.

Such things have been in place since time immemorial. Girls have always been expected to look feminine and cleanliness and being pretty is part of it. Men too would be expected to be clean but unlike girls they do not apply lots of make up. I think it is just in search of femininity.

Boys are born to be muscular an touch they always ready for any challenging situations in life. Girl are born to be feminine they always look clean, groom and neat. That's norm.

It's simple really, because they can! Don't think of it as unfair, think of it as an advantage!

People who actually expect that can expect a great deal of disappointment and girls who try to achieve that are setting themselves up for failure. Those are totally unrealistic expectations for anyone. Not even the most rich and famous look fabulous every second. They often have a hired "team" to pick wardrobe, do hair, make up, manicures, personal training and the like. Their "looks" are their living. Even their photos are air brushed. Everybody gets zits, dark circles, split ends, muffin tops, gross elbows, knobby knees, crooked teeth or some other horrifying flaw that makes us want to crawl under a rock. Every single person has something they feel uncomfortable about. Recognize that about yourself and others and you won't feel so pressured to be flawless. No one is and no one can be. Give yourself and everyone else a break. You don't need full make up to run at the cross country meet, really.

DO you really want to see a girl that smells bad and they're all sweaty?

Because that's how the media portrays people.

Is it stupid? ABSOLUTELY.

I hate looking nice! I couldn't care less about what they expect. It's called stereotyping.
