What makes the issue of female physical beauty glorified, idolized, even deified in American
society? What makes the beautiful woman so much more superior to other women by American cultural & societal standards?
I would only think that "the beautiful woman" is "superior" or especially "so much more superior" to other women in our American Culture to certain people. Herself, the narcisisitic men and or women who feel they can utilize her physical attributes ( and in this case it sounds like her entitled attitude) to feel better about themselves, the cosmetics industry who feed on her need to be viewed as more beautiful than others, as well as fashion industry, spa industry, etc, Occasionally the media will ensnare a person who is physically symetrical (did you know that's all classical beauty is? At least the physical kind you keep writing questions about.) I'm a third generation artist, I know something about this sort of "beauty " you're obsessed with and may presumably have. Physical symmetry can be one of the most boring things to behold for some people, especially if it's not backed up by anything interesting in the soul. Or mind. I've also seen the most gorgeous girls who were totally ignored by others and didn't think anything of themselves because they just didn't value their own beauty. It made them very interesting people. I'm 50 years old now and I've (believe it or not ) known all sides of the spectrum myself. Why don't you just relax and try to be a people person. And one more thing, if you're so familiar with the power of your own superbeauty, why do you have Vanessa Williams photo up as your avatar? Why wouldn't you be proud to put up your own picture? I doubt that you would drive the nation MAD with lust and cause dozens of stalkers to hack the hub network accounts to find you. We're basically civilized here. Except for me, I haven't had my coffee yet.
Female physical beauty is glorified, idolized and deified in almost every culture, not only American.
The obvious exception is the muslim culture, which goes the exact opposite way to completely remove it, and them, from society at large.
The bottom line is that we all like to look at beautiful things, whatever our personal version of beauty may be. In that, the physical beauty of both males and females is admired.
I suspect, though, that the attractive female form is more prevalent in society because females generally display a greater degree of admiration and appreciation of the female form then males do of other males.
That is true about that the attractive female form is more prevalent in society, but there is a big concern that the media-ization of greater portions of the world are inflicting "Hollywood Barbie Look" on cultures that have historically been unique
