@vivaciouslyv,

Although our perception of what is attractive can be (slightly) affected by cultural transmission, attraction itself is a biological event–at bottom. There are reasons men are attracted to women with larger breasts, larger hips, and a fit body; it’s not just arbitrary. The human brain decides she is more capable of rearing children.

One of our primary tasks as a species is proliferation, the chemicals responsible for “attraction” are not concerned with feelings or fairness; they care about combining the best sets of genes.
