I wrote a post on LJ regarding OKcupid blog post. There were some interesting (alas in Russian) comments why the trends described in the OKpost may emerge. In particular, it seems women pay more attention to their appearance than men which makes sense. And that should have skewed the graph on women attractiveness to the right but in reality (and if we assume the data presented there is true) the graph is normalized. So it’s possible that women’s attractiveness (maybe due to paying more attention to appearance that somehow skewes overall rating to the average) eventually are normalized — i.e. the graph becomes more or less evenly spred.
