Interesting discussion on this topic.
Bonifacius saidas you can see this thread generates very strong emotions in some individuals
Art_Deco saidThe 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.This ^.
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.
woodfordr saidFor 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.
