Default Clarification

@Redpepper:
True, true. What I said, ("women are not as visually aroused as men") was a general statement about the usual state of affairs. It was not intended to be an absolute, to apply to all cases, or to imply that women don't appreciate the visual aesthetic. As always, it is dangerous to make general statements generalizing a group of people, especially when speaking to / about specific people.

As a related side note, while arguing about this my wife would tell me "I am not attracted to other men, so why are you attracted to other women?" This ended up being a combination of her being more emotionally attracted to people, and also the fact that she was more attracted to women than men, and being in denial about it. I don't think this is the norm for what is really going on when this argument is used, but it is what was going on in my own personal situation.
