^ I've found that women who dress more like men in the workplace can do quite well ... heels are far from a requirement to get promoted anyplace I've ever been.
There seem to be some mistaken views floating around here
I would recommend the book
Why Him? Why Her?
(which btw includes quite a bit of actual science) to anyone who thinks gender and attraction is simple ... right/left, black/white. It is not, and that's true
you take people attracted to their own gender out of the mix (which of course should not be done if one wants to have any kind of clear picture of the spectrum of expression).
There are many women who are attracted to more 'feminine' characteristics in men (full lips, non-chiseled jaw, etc.) even without the pill.
Women are hardly uniquely capable of using beauty and sex appeal to their advantage; men do it every day, everywhere I've ever been, and there are a boatload of studies documenting the advantage of being goodlooking to either gender.
Additionally, I'd like to be shown a feminist today who doesn't acknowledge differences between men and women. The perspective being touted here as 'feminist' is extremely old school and out of date. Every mode of thinking and movement evolves. There's no point in arguing with a viewpoint that's not really held by anyone to speak of today.
Luxury is living a simple, elegant, and responsible life. Luxury is a reduction.
