Double Standards

As I am "putting on my face" this morning, I have a thought that I can't seem to let go of.

Why is it that as a man ages, the lines on his face are attractive? Sexy even. But on a woman, they make her look old.

Laugh lines on a man, tell me he has fun and enjoys life. I don't think the same is said of the average woman. In fact there is a bazillion dollar industry that targets women and fighting those very lines.

Definitely a double standard here. And one that I continue to play into. Although I see this double standard, I'm not sure I'm ready to give up the fight and embrace these lines.
