Beauty in Men
If there is this feminine beauty, there must also be this masculine beauty.
However, I have no personal hatred with Angela Casco, the presenter of the infographics entitled “Beauty in Women”, for being one-sided and more focused on the part of the female race. She’s my friend and I deeply understand if she quite became bias from that point, after all, it’s her privilege.
Though man have much fewer concerns on beauty than female, much fewer take on fashion and styling; it seems like man, in respect with women, have much more confidence in showing off their manly beauty and even boasting it.
Based on Angela’s presentation, as shown by the social experiment executed by a private company, female sees themselves lesser in quality compared to what they actually appear in reality.
In relation to their weak nature, they have lesser confidence with themselves, in other words, they are much concentrating on their imperfections rather than their best assets.
The meme is consisted of two- picture split in mirrors: one which is a hot, sexy, beefy, good- looking hunk posing like Johnny Bravo which represents every man’s fantasy; while the other is a thin, dark, short, bad- looking guy posing the same as the opposite portion, which obviously symbolizes the reality.
That meme just show on how males are pre-occupied by the thought that we look good despite of imperfections. Unlike females, man focuses on their best assets rather than those impurities that even though how evident or distracting to other people, seems like unnoticed.
Though females all have this thought of improving their beauty but in reality, just few of them possess the required courage to utilize and show it off. Males, though lacking in aesthetic necessities, have this guts to have a fashion hair- cut, wear things a la mode, and proudly flaunt it.
Gentlemen, being dominant in nature, have this perception of beauty among other, that based on Angela’s report, is lacking on women. This is the beauty not on what others actually see but on how you see yourself as a beautiful creature as it is.
