The only time I remember doing a double take, turn-and-look was when a fire truck full of 4 Hotty McHot firemen drove past. The whole group of girls I was with stopped and followed their truck with our eyes and bodies. (We got honks from them, so it was all good.
) However, on a regular basis, I see guys do the up-down-up scan AND turn around to do the same thing again and catch the woman's other side. Tacky.
Basically you are saying that women are superficial and socially fragile.
Guys aren't worried about being judged for checking out a passing woman. Girls, on the other hand, are very judgmental and fear the social consequences of outwardly expressing sexual interest. If you don't believe me, just look at how much more open women are becoming as it becomes more socially acceptable for women to express sexuality.
EDIT: Let me also add that this is the reason women feel the need to look good. The makeup, hair irons, etc... would be completely unnecessary if women stopped judging each other. It's not guys, it's other women that are the root of this. The male metrosexuals tried to pull this crap, but guys quickly put an end to it. We, as males, don't need to be devaluing our baseline looks by raising the status quo and dolling ourselves up.
Additionally, the irrational emotional nature also plays into the self-imposed necessity to want to look good. Why is it that a woman is so image conscious all the damn time? Why do women feel to the need to have get togethers where the sole purpose is to dress up and look nice...and then go out to dinner and take 1000+ photos with flashes and generally be annoying to everyone else in the restaurant.
