What I find fascinating is the whole paradox of beauty imposed on people of mixed heritage, what I would call the "exotic quixotic".
Take, for example, all of those sexy women on rap videos that have very unique features.....i.e. almond-shaped hazel eyes with bronze skin. Men find that very alluring and sexy......yet when they find out these women are part Asian/Latino/Black (or insert other ethnicity), they balk at that fact. A quote from eurasiannation.com best sums it up:
QUOTE
You’re half Asian? Well, I hope it’s the bottom half.

That comment made me feel like a centaur or something from an exhibit of Greek mythology of beasts. Like I was some sort of sexual freak of nature. I have the mythical China box, the gateway to the Orient, but the round Bambi eyes and curves of a westerner. Too cool. But no, not really.


On a personal note, I've experienced that exotic paradoxy. I get shit from the Fil-Am community for not being Filipino enough (both in ethnic mix and subculture), yet numerous Filipinos favor fair skin and Western features. I've also gotten that "slanted vagina" commentaries from a few men who like the fact that I'm some sort of Asian yet I look Mexican/Filipina............ wacko.gif

what the hell....

Kawaii,

I'm part Mexican and Vietnamese and I deal with the ignorant remarks from both sides and it's annoying as hell, but what the hell can I do with ignorant fools, besides giving them a beat down. But I have to say you deal with some degenerate idiots. I don't know. But I know where you're coming from.

I lived in Los Alamitos for 6 years, and believe me.....being Filipina (or a person of color) in a very white upper class neighborhood harbors quite a bit of animosity. ermm.gif

I find it amusing when people try to guess my ethnicity. shifty.gif

Well, first a cliché : "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

But it´s true. For example, I like Beyouncé, but I like my girl with a little more "filling". Skinny skanks that are the modern society´s beauty standards, like supermodels, are not my thing. I mean, how can you call a girl that looks like a boy from the behind, beautiful? Or sexy!
Femininity comes from figure as well as the way you act.

I think God (if there´s one) meant women to be a little bit round.
So they would separate from men tongue.gif

There´s nothing more beautiful than a perfect round ass! Off with those bony boy-like "supermodels"! zmat2.gif

There should be more males with that mentality.. zyes.gif



about the Roundness and thickness part!!


There's nothing wrong with Skinny girls.. but there is definitely something wrong with it being the only form of accepatable beauty.

Yeah and I don't want skinny women to disappear from magazines or television, I just think that there needs to be a more honest respresentation of what this world looks like. Skinny women have problems with their self image too. When you walk out your door does everyone look like Heidi Klum? They don't look like Beyonce either. There needs to be a little bit of everything rather than trying to pressure us all to look a certain way and stay forever young, with these wrinkle creams and chemical peels. You have girls in their twenties complaining about crows feet rolleyes.gif

Anyway, does anyone watch The Swan? One of the worst shows ever made but I can't stop watching ermm.gif I want to see how far they're going to go unsure.gif So sad what people put themselves through to look a certain way.

beautiful means different things to different people. to me beautiful is having a certain natural auroa. make up doesnt make you more beatiful i think, it hides natural beauty. natural beauty is so much more than fake beauty thats been plastered on.

many things are beautiful, the sun setting in a red sky, a tear running down a persons cheek, a room which breathes life, people, thousands of stars in the night time sky.

beauty isnt looking your best, beauty is being who you are and not caring what other people think about what you look like. beautiful is a word, sometimes i cant describe how beautiful a person or thing is. that is true beauty when it transends the word.

You know what's beautiful? A person who is passionate about their cause.......who has a degree of social consciousness......
Go beyond aesthetics......it's all an illusion!
