Best Looking Women in the World
Whether you’ve traveled or not, we’ve all heard people say, “The women from my country are the Best Looking Women in the World.” What I find interesting is that I’ve never said this about my own country, the United States. Beautiful American women exist, but they are an endangered species. The population of the United States is about two thirds overweight or obese, slim pickings to say the least. So how/why do Brazilian and Swedish guys get away with such boasting about their women?
Let’s assume there are roughly the same amount of poor, middle class, and rich people in every country. Whether we’re talking about the United States or Zimbabwe, 10% of the population will be rich. No matter how messed up the average population looks (and I can think of a few countries with disastrous reputations), there will always be some diamonds. However, not all countries have exactly the same percentages of poor, middle class, and rich people. Some countries are poorer, some have a smaller/larger middle classes, and some have more rich people than other countries. We can say that if some countries have more billionaires than other countries, some countries will have more attractive women than other countries.
When I backpacked through Scandinavia, I didn’t see many fatties, and the ones I did see were probably tourists. If such a high percentage of a country’s population is in shape, then of course the world is going to gawk at them.
Keeping with the Brazilian-Swedish example, if enough people say their women are the Best Looking Women in the World and foreigners buy into it, then those people feed the vicious cycle of hype and stereotype about the women being bragged about. Think if your parents called you stupid each day of your life; you’d start to believe you really were stupid. No wonder certain flags think so highly of themselves when so many guys salivate at the thought of them.
[Even though The Hunger doesn’t think Swedish girls are some of Best Looking Women in the World, and I do, read his The Beauty of Propaganda post.]
When other nationalities brag about their women, I just listen because there’s no way I can brag about my own. Next time you’re flag bragging or flag bashing, ask what makes a country’s women the hottest in the world.
