Oh. No. He. Did. Not.
Some guy, who basically sounds like a caveman, thinks he has some helpful advice for women, so he made a specific list to try to help us all out. Alexander J.A. Cortes, some idiot physical trainer guy from California, posted his list, titled “How To Be A Beautiful Woman,” to Twitter (where it’s since gone viral), and people are calling it “horrifying.”
Cortes, who says he works as both a trainer and a writer, included 12 “tips” for women who are looking to become beautiful — but not once does he mention brains, curiosity, humor, personality, kindness; you know, the stuff that actually makes a person beautiful. He’s all surface.
His list includes this nonsense:
"Be thin. Be able to cook. Have long hair. Wear make-up. Be feminine. Be graceful. Be Sensual. Shave (should without saying.) Be fashionable. Wear pink and feminine colors. Love men. Listen to men.”
He finishes the list, which he shared with his 58,000 followers, by saying “stay classy ladies!”
Because he’s a class act. Maybe he didn’t get the memo that we don’t really put up with this s--t anymore.
Still, the post got more than 9,000 likes from like-minded fools. So, he dished out some more jerky advice. “Remember, only a man can tell a woman how to act. You can use this list to vet women … If you show them this list and they become angry, that lets you know that they are harpies that you never want to breed with and that they would be terrible mothers,” the 29-year-old wrote.
He also made another list of the “top 10 red flags in women.” These include “doesn’t care about looking pretty,” “not being able to cook,” “being a feminist,” “being overly fat,” and not liking children.
Some commenters are laughing him off (as we all should be), with one writing, “Aka How to be a Single Guy Forever.” Another wrote, “Horrifying that people with these sorts of beliefs actually exist outside of bad self-published fiction.” One added, “This man made me laugh thank you for being such a sexist frog. I enjoyed your writings.”
Um, one word, guy: Therapy.
