Because they are better looking, better behaved, delicate, and like to be complimented.
Have you ever touched one? I think you'll find that they are much more comfortable to touch.
Fair used to mean beautiful as well as delicately complected. The emphasis was on prettiness though. As in, fair of face or fair maiden. We are definitely the prettier sex! By far!
What a good question and not surprisingly fully taken advantage of from the members of the fairer sex who have taken the time to answer. The term 'fairer sex' does come from the regal courts of the past and intimated that the women were fragile enough to be defended by males within the medieval terms of chivelry.
Why on earth the term has carried over to this century is anybody's guess; but I suspect it had to do with an Aussi called Darkside laying down his singlet over a puddle, for a certain blond nurse to walk across fairly! (And that'd be a first for an Aussi too, I'm sure).
Hopefully you are not confusing the use of the term "fairer" to mean that they are more objective and balanced in their approach, but I had to ask. The reference to "fairer" with regard to women is relative to the lightness of their skin color and probably came from a comparison of old when men worked outside in the sun and becamed tanned further highlighting the wife's light complexion. It also has come to refer to their tenderness and delicacy. Hope this helps. WB
