Why people think girl skins are "cute"

Alright, so if you look around the skin section of the site, and scroll through the Recently Updated Skins, you're bound to find 10+ "cute girl skin"(s) or ex. "hot girl skin"(s). Nearly all of these skins, after a while of looking and realizing, look the same. I'm here to anwser three questions today: Why people think that these "girl skins" are "cute", how these skins got to be the norm for girl skins on PMC, and why are they so poorly drawn?

Question 1: "Why do people think that these 'girl skins' are classifiable as cute or quote 'hawt'?"
Over time, people have taken the idea of a "hot" girl out of the minds of people who play Minecraft (sorry guys, but mostly people who can't get a date) and have made this the ideal skin on Minecraft. These skins are classifiable as "unattainable" girls in real life, and so thereforth the idea of meeting a nerd girl on Minecraft with this skin is, in the mind of a dateless, very attractive.

Question 2: "How did these skins got to be the norm for girl skins on PMC?"
The norm for Planet Minecraft skins changes as the ideal girl in real-life changes. As stated in the first question, the idea of a extremely attractive girl playing Minecraft with herself as her skin is every nerd's dream. As the idea of what a attractive girl should look like changes, people adapt these ideas and incorporate them into their girl skins. Then, the girl-nerds of Plant Minecraft think "Oh wow, I wish I could look like that" (Not biased against nerds or girls here guys.) and switch their skins with that. These skins then become popular, and people start to think that they are good, thus making more of the skins.

Question 3: "Why are these girl skins so poorly drawn?"
The awnser to this question is that the artists who waste their time making these skins don't care to detail them how a real girl looks. They don't add shading or such, but use the simplistic (and bad) ideas of old girl skins. Many girl skins, as you will see, have sparkly eyes, long hair, short-shorts, and small blouses and/or tank tops. This is, unfortunately, the idea of a hot girl, and many of these skins are edited from old bad skins, meaning that just a few changes like color and the placing of the clothes, meaning no detail is added and the old ideas are kept circling through PMC.

I am not saying that all PMC girl skins are bad, just that the majority and norm of PMC girl skins are, sorry, bad.
Maybe one day PMC will move to an age where the girl skins are detailed and actually good looking, but then again maybe Charlie Sheen will run for president (and win).

Agreed!!! I hate them, and I'm trying to make my own skin that actually looks like me, and not some "hot" girl skin.

I try to hate these sorts of girl skins. The problem is that they are hypnotising. A girl looks at these sorts of skins and uses them, hoping that she will get noticed by guys. I mean, who doesn't want to get noticed. And don't get me started on those stupid striped shirt girl skins. They're everywhere! I prefer skins that unique, and well thought. You don't absolutely have to have textured skins, its good to have variety in texturing. I play on alot of servers. and most of the girl skins i see are just trying to be hot, and not actually focusing on realism. I wish someday that we would put this behind. I mean, who cares if ur hot or not? As long as u like it and put care into finding it or making it, thats all that matters. And how can a girl skin be cute? Puppies are cute,kittens a cute, puppies hugging kittens are cute. But girl skins? No way. Together, we can take a stand and stop those stupid girl skins!

I hate it whenever I see one of these skins! I'm like seriously, how hard is it to shade? I learned to shade in under 1 minute pretty much and I still remember it is to this day. And sure, the anime-chibi shading I can't do very well, but the usual shading for hair is super easy to do and everyone should know how. At least make it darker colors going down to the hair to make it LOOK like you tried. Jeez...

I personally agree! These "hot" girls with some ombre hair or shorts or non-shaded skin amkes me wanna claw them! I spent like 2 hours working on a skin and try my best while these girl get these skins from the internet or do them themselves with absolutely no work! I'm talking about those brown to blonde ombre people not colorful ombre, colorful ombre is quite nice <3! But I totally agree with you!!!

Okay then.  Now that he's posted this, will any of the people who read it (besides moi) look at a nicely detailed girl skin?
No.  They'll find some sort of flaw and point it out, making the creator feel bad.
I try to make my skins creative, but  every girl skin is based off of the classic.  We just prefer to make our skins more, how to put this, us.
There are lots of amazing skinners way more experienced in skinning than I am, and look at thiers.
Myra _, for example, strives to make sure each and every one of her skins is way different than the last (unless it's a redraw) and has such creative ideas, that lots of people want to be like her.  
So please, let us make our horrible skins, and keep your mouth shut.  It seriously offended me when I read this.  I clicked on it, and now I wish I hadn't.
Sorry if I'm offending you, but I had to get that out.

Okay, look, you need to chill out. Number one, if you can't take criticisms about your work or art on the internet, you don't need to be producing art or be on the internet. Number two, you seem to have missed that this blog post is directed at the 8 trillion copy pasted skins that alter two of the secondary colors and the highlight on her eyes and post it as an original work.Guess what? It's not. 

A direct quote, by the way, from the end of the post "I am not saying that all PMC girl skins are bad, just that the majority and norm of PMC girl skins are, sorry, bad." You are literally saying "Yeah we copy and paste and what we make is shit but get over it!!!1!" You are uploading your work to a public forum, leaving it open for criticism. Get over it, learn to take criticism if you're going to keep producing works, and learn to read before you open your mouth on a public forum. Thanks.

And you're saying can't take criticism?
I'm sorry if I misunderstood, but still, this is majorly offending to a lot of people.
And really I prefer criticism when it's actually posted on my skins or blogs.  I accept it.  using what people say on MY posts, I try to make whatever they think needs to be changed better.
Again, I'm sorry if I misunderstood, but why don't we both just shut up and stop being offensive?

100% agree. I'm a girl and I don't have premium yet but I like to make skins. I put effort into making them. Sometimes when I feel like making them, I need "Ideas" and when I usually search on the internet, I see these kinds of bloody not shaded skins that just takes a few minutes to do . And sometimes I get annoyed. Alot of girls put effort into making their skins and sharing them with others. Which is well I dont know how to say but yeah. I don't like these people who make simple-non-time-effort skin makers . so i guess... Approve c:

I'm a girl, and i agree 100%. I usually don't use a girl skin because i feel the same way, so i use a neutral skin ( just a rainbow skin, or something abstract). When i DO decide to use a girl skin (normally when i get tired of people thinking I'm a guy), i have a original girl skin that i made, that I've put effort into, unlike most mc girls (most, not all....MOST).
