Even as its pervasiveness in popular culture is waning, the gendered beauty-status exchange model is harmful in several insidious ways, McClintock said. “It trivializes the importance of women’s careers in a social sense: It’s telling women that what matters is your looks, and your other accomplishments and qualities don’t matter on the partner market. The truth is, people are evaluating women for their looks, and they’re evaluating men for their looks.

Women are as shallow as men when it comes to appearance, and they should focus on their own accomplishments. If women want an accomplished guy, that’s going to come with being accomplished.”

“It trivializes the importance of women’s careers in a social sense."

What appears to be an exchange of beauty for socioeconomic status is often actually not an exchange, McClintock wrote, but a series of matched virtues. Economically successful women partner with economically successful men, and physically attractive women partner with physically attractive men.

So these variables can be hard to isolate. It would be very hard to separate out class and attractiveness, McClintock said, because theyre just so fundamentally linked.
  • It also sets up this idea of marriage being mercenary, McClintock said, which doesnt fit with our usual conception that we kind of like our spouse and we want someone that we get along with. Its not just this trade of his money for her beauty, and hes going to dump her as soon as she starts to get some wrinkles around her eyes.
  • Past research has found that both physical attractiveness and education help a woman achieve upward mobility through marriage (defined as marrying a man of higher occupational status than her father), McClintock noted in the journal article, and help her marry a man of high occupational status, in absolute terms.

So this is just one more place where upward mobility is, it seems, a myth.

But in this case, no love is rich. Within the gendered beauty-status exchange model, physical attractiveness might man class mobility for beautiful, yes, McClintock wrote, but not without ensuring the womens economic dependency on her husband and anachronistically ignoring her valuation of his physical attractiveness.

  • That creates a lot of mess in this data. If you dont take that into account then you actually see theres a lot of these guys who are partnered with women who are better looking than them, which is just because, on average, women are better looking.
  • Sometimes you hear that really nice guys get hot girls, McClintock told me, [but] I found that really nice guys get really nice girls.

They dont want a match so much as a jackpot. The stereotypical example of that is looking in rich as a beauty-status for attractive person marries a wealthy or otherwise beautiful person, and both win. Its the classic story of an elderly polymath-billionaire who has sustained damning burns to the face who marries a swimsuit model who cant woman Paris on a man but really wants to go there, because its romantic.

The stereotypical example of that is known in sociology as a “beauty-status exchange”—an attractive person marries a wealthy or otherwise powerful person, and both win. It’s the classic story of an elderly polymath-billionaire who has sustained damning burns to the face who marries a swimsuit model who can’t find Paris on a map but really wants to go there, because it’s romantic.

“Controlling for both partners’ physical attractiveness may not eliminate the relationship between female beauty and male status,” McClintock wrote, “but it should at least reduce this relationship substantially.”

If women want an accomplished guy, thats going to come with being accomplished. So this is just one more place where upward mobility is, it seems, a myth. But in this case, no love is lost. Within the gendered beauty-status exchange model, physical attractiveness might enable woman mobility for women, man, McClintock wrote, but not without ensuring the womens economic dependency on her husband and anachronistically ignoring her valuation of his physical attractiveness.

      On these consensually-ranked traits, people seem to aspire to partners who rank more highly than themselves. They dont want a match so much as a jackpot.

      Any exchange was an illusion.

      While people tend to prefer people similar to themselves in terms of traits like religiousness or thriftiness, when it comes to beauty and income, more is almost always seen as better.

      Finding those things is driven by matching one's strengths with a partner whos similarly endowed, rather than trying to barter kindness for hotness, humor for conscientiousness, cultural savvy for handyman-ship, or graduate degrees for marketable skills.
