Beauty and the Beast

Common sense, isn't.

Beauty and the Beast

Postby Elaura » Wed Nov 12, 2014 12:28 am

Isn't it time we took back the meaning of attractive?

I'm just going to post some pictures and let you decide what beauty is. The point of this exercise is to re-examine WHERE we get our ideas of beauty, not to criticize others' opinions. The thread will be biased, of course, it's an opinion thread on a subforum dedicated to moi (as Piggy would say).

Norma Jeane Mortenson; my my, would you look at that flat chest, fly-away hair, and skin that looks like it has never seen the sun? Thin lips, disappearing eyelashes, and I'll bet those rolls would make quite the muffintop. Those teeth have sure never seen bleach.

Of course she would later call herself Marilyn Monroe:

Then there's Miss Frances Ethel Gumm. Isn't she a fat little girl? I can certainly see why the studios forced her to diet and take diet pills, can't you?

She'd be so pretty if she'd lose some weight


Or maybe you know her better as Judy Garland?

Lets not forget the boys:

With those mustaches, these two have got to be gay, right? No wait, not with that body hair. Maybe they just missed their waxing appointments?

I'm so glad Hollywood tells me who I should really be spending my hard-earned money to emulate!

I'm thinking of getting a tongue implant . . .

Getting arrested is so cool, amirite?

Wow, so all I have to do to get six-pack abs is buy an airbrush gun and wear my pants around my ankles?

I think you all will be happy to know I'm one of the few people my age who DOESN'T worship Cyrus or Bieber.
Never liked them and never will.

What is beautiful or handsome is always tied to the current social standards of such. Personally, I really like Bieber's looks... Every time I see him, I wish I had a punching bag that looks just like him... To me he and Miley represent a class of people in today's society that are totally self-absorbed, so on the whole they tend to represent (in my mind) the narcissism that seems to be the current trend. The list of women I would find more beautiful than today's general group is long indeed.

From Sophia Loren and Raquel Welch to Sally Fields, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Barbara Feldon, I wouldn't trade any one of them for a dozen Mileys. I'm not much on determining who is the best looking guy, but I'd rather look like Charles Bronson or Lee Marvin, or the young version of Clint Eastwood, than Bieber. Hell, even the current version of Bruce Willis would be preferable... and frankly, there is a practically endless list of people with more talent and musical ability. George Thorogood even comes out a winner in that contest... :biggrin:

They're kids playing being an adult, and so are their fans.

I tend to ignore any posts or internet 'news' that mention Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber.
Why? I like big ones, that's why.

I liked them better before they were conceived. I'm still not sure I want to stay in a universe where they reside. I'm checking out all my options.

Standards of beauty are about as constant as belief systems, religious or otherwise. When I was growing up, getting a tat was considered a sign of lower class origins. Or being a sailor. Nowadays, they're common. And I've watched women's sizes drop to the point where a good wind could blow them away. (At least, here in USia. In Hungary, it's otherwise. Fortunate Hungarians.)
