And I blame evil, not people.
All personal preferences aside, beauty is resonant with the golden ratio, 1/1.618. This applies to everything, people, trees, art. Fibonnaci was onto something, as were the ancient Hindu. Artists have exploited GR; for example, the Mona Lisa uses GR. As to the social issues faced by those deemed beautiful, I think this may be about ego and how easily it is bruised by anything perceived 'superior'. Anyone being 'mean' to a beauty, really is jealous but also trying to establish their own attributes and if this is not possible, to actually work to undermine or even destroy the reputation of the beauty. When I saw an unattractive female colleague insulting the achievements of another, more attractive woman, all I really saw was ugliness in the soul of the attacker. Backfired for her because the pretty one had done a good job and in such a way that it was not really possible for anyone to claim credit for it.
a reply to: tigertatzen I have to be physically attracted to a woman to sleep with her much less marry her and procreate, if that's shallow so be it, but that's my preference and I do not believe there is anything wrong with that. Having said that, of course I want a smart, passionate, caring, sweet, and kind woman. But I do not think these are mutually exclusive and to act like they are, is exactly what the OP is talking about.
If there is no walk off how will we know who is beautiful and who not? Are we just supposed to take peoples word for it? Dont be ridiculous, most especially since the concept and word means so many different things to so many different people. We should pick some judges, and get this competition going. Maybe you all can post individual walk off on youtube, then the competitors would post theirs as well, then people can judge on just who is the mostest beautiful. Till then, sounds like a bunch of hot air over nothing. I stipulate to vote if we should move this thread to the hoax section.
a reply to: tigertatzen no. "according to the OP" my grass. according to studies and FACTS. I have done prior research. But the thread isn't about that intelligence correlation at all. That was just an exterior thing I thought to add in because it's true and because people like to think that pretty people are stupid when they're not. This thread's topic was not that. it was how people react automatically with evil and hatred at what they can't have. and how that's really sad. It's also about what the article talked about. But that was mostly an excuse for me to be able to display the phenomena I spoke of within the thread itself. if you haven't noticed, it's VERY IRONIC what's been happening in this thread. Anyway, I doubt these stunningly beautiful people you know are actually stunningly beautiful. Just saying. But you seem awfully happy to rag on these people--what about you? Are you perfect? Don't you think that you're being kinda mean? Right? Jealousy isn't nice. You really should realize it and stop. Everyone should. But you won't until you stop trying to be someone you're no
no. "according to the OP" my grass
