    LOL quick hide this from Radd. The fact that there may be a racial hierarchy in what people find attractive and that it may favor white guys is going to throw that poor man into a tizzy.

    Bonifacius saidas you can see this thread generates very strong emotions in some individuals


    Given the dead look in your eyes I would think any emotion is strong to you

    The definition of attractive people, both male & female, is largely a cultural determination. But as I grow older, I see the beauty in all people, within all races. I find great beauty in Australian Aborigines, for instance. which few people do.

    I remember reading George Bernard Shaw's "Man and Superman" over 50 years ago as a teenager. And Shaw imagined a future world where a lot of these distinctions & prejudices about beauty & gender had faded away. I begin to think I may have reached that point myself.

    All the assumptions and stereotypes of my youth are falling away. Instead of becoming more fixed & rigid in my thinking in my old age, which I believe is more typical, I'm moving in the opposite direction. Not sure why, it's just happening. How very peculiar. icon_confused.gif

    In recent years especially, the stigma that most men would have felt about even discussing getting plastic surgery has faded away. And I am glad to see it. There is absolutely nothing wrong in wanting to change yourself for the better, whether that is physically or mentally. Men are not afraid to say they want to look good. Women have been doing it for years.

    For those who were upset by the survey, just remember... There are a shit load of healthy, happy, successful people who are not in the upper percentile of the beauty hierarchy. Somehow those people find a way to have terrific lives by focussing on far more substantial things. If by chance, you are like me and have been afflicted by very average beauty, male pattern baldness, nearsightedness, dry skin, high melanin concentration, and shortness, please know you can still go on to do great things, have an awesome life and create your own beauty. I promise. Don't hate on the naturally beautiful y'all. They were born that way, too.

    "If by chance, you are like me and have been afflicted by very average beauty..." LOL! I love that!

    "...create your own beauty. ...Don't hate on the naturally beautiful y'all. They were born that way, too." Those are great sentiments! Bravo, sir!

    I'm afflicted with much less than average beauty, not beauty at all. But I think I learned how to compensate for it in other ways, had no other choice. I won't go into all that here & now, except to say I couldn't agree with you more.

    What I hear you saying is that people can take charge, control, and direct their own lives. And make of themselves what they want, in spite of popular notions & expectations. In can be an uphill fight, granted, but not impossible. Go for it! icon_biggrin.gif

    With Americanization of the world, even the local beauty standards of a culture in the opposite side of the world are getting eerily like that of USA.
