Why do I keep seeing dudes and not girls in my photos?
Posted On July 15, 2021
I get the sense that some of my male friends are more likely to be seen in the fashion world than their female counterparts, because it’s easier to socialise in the online spaces that they can navigate.
I know that when I’m in a social setting with a group of guys I often feel like I’m missing out on the experiences of the women in my group, because I’m not the one who’s doing the talking.
But when I start to ask my female friends if they think there’s a “typical” guy or girl in their social circles, I get a lot of positive responses.
I can’t help but wonder if this is due to my own experience of “typicals” in my online life.
While it’s certainly possible that I’m just missing out, it also seems like a fairly common thing for women in the world to feel less socially acceptable when it comes to dressing.
While I don’t have any hard data to back up this claim, it’s definitely possible that the fact that women in general feel less comfortable in their own spaces and not as socially accepted in the public sphere is a result of social conditioning and social expectations.
But while I feel like the reason I see more guys in my photographs than girls is that they’re more likely and more often to be men, there’s no evidence that this is the case.
So, when I ask my male and female friends how they’d be able to make the most out of their online lives without being in the same social environment, the responses tend to be a mixture of things.
They say they’d prefer to stay home and have less social interactions with people, and they also say they wouldn’t want to put themselves out there for the wrong reasons.
In short, we all get it.
But why does this have to be the case?
I think there are two main reasons for this.
First, there are the social conditioning factors that lead to a greater tendency for men to be more comfortable in social situations.
In fact, it seems that men are more comfortable socially interacting with women in social settings, which may explain why we see more of them in my pictures than in pictures of women.
Secondly, there is the social expectation that girls have to conform to the expectations of men in order to be accepted as a part of society.
While this can certainly play a role in why girls are seen in photos of men, it doesn’t seem to be all that prevalent in our society.
When I talk to men about this, it makes me wonder why we’ve had to “learn” how to be feminine when we weren’t growing up in the culture that was “for the boys”.
In other words, when we’re growing up we are told that our gender is something we’re born with and that it’s our destiny to “become the guys”.
We don’t get to make that decision for ourselves, because the world expects us to conform and conform to those expectations.
For girls, this seems to be something that can actually make them feel like they’re not good enough, and that they need to get more masculine in order for them to be treated as part of the group.
But is it really a bad thing?
The truth is that it can be very difficult to see that girls and women have a similar set of social expectations and social preferences.
There are a lot more social pressures on girls than on boys, and girls are much more likely than boys to experience a variety of gender-based harassment.
For example, while boys may be more likely that girls to be sexually harassed, girls are far more likely in their daily lives to be harassed in their personal spaces.
It’s important to remember that this can be a difficult thing to put into words, but I think it’s important for people to take a step back and think about why some people have the expectation that women are better than men when it’s time to take responsibility for their own actions.
And finally, we need to recognise that social conditioning does play a huge part in why certain behaviours seem to become more common.
That being said, it may be that it is important to understand that social expectations play a bigger role in some people’s behaviour than others.
I’m sure that’s something that some men will find interesting.
But for those of you who are struggling with this, perhaps you can try to imagine what it’s like for your male friends to think about what it means to be different and what it would be like for them not to have to think that way.
