Article makes sense.

I would also say, some girls probably go for feminine looking men for a variety of reasons, e.g. they look less threatening, they are 'prettier', cultural influences etc.

It's because all women are inherently lesbian.

It's all in the bone structure! I've got sort of girlish eyes and high defined cheekbones but with a really square jaw.

Whatever it is, it works :P

if you usually look at the males who are rated the best looking. they both have masculine and feminine facial features.

No, good looking and attractiveness is social conditioning. If you look at the good looking actors and the models on the cover of GQ 40 years ago, and compare them to the cover models today, they're different. Women back in the days said John Wayne had a "perfect face."

The same goes for women.

It's like some dude sitting in his ivory tower in the south of France deciding what's in and what's out.

Partly

people are instinctively attracted to features of the opposite sex (women are instinctively attracted to less visual/more subtle features).

Trends that go to the contrary are cultural. Think back to when you first started checking out girls and first started getting boners. OF course it varies from person to person, but chances are that happened before you learned what was socially considered attractive.

Yes but like you say, it really differs for men as opposed to women. It takes half a second for a man to judge whether a woman is attractive. Women, on the other hand, are attracted to sub-communication features of a man.

Attraction through looks is much more varied than most people think. A lot of people say Jessica Simpson has a mannish face. Some disagree and say Jessica Biel and Demi Moore has a mannish face. So while we may agree that some people are more attractive to others, there will always be that level of criticism, because we're all operating in this system of society.
