Is there really physical beauty,attractiveness, plainness, & even ugliness among humans or are such
concepts artificial, societal constructs? WHO & WHAT paradigm determine who is beautiful, plain, & even ugly?
Good question. From what I've learned, it's both. There are features that I doubt any society throughout history would find attractive, yet others depend on the culture. Overweight women, for example, were found attractive in ancient times, as they signified a woman wealthy enough to afford an excess of food.
In more modern times, things as small as eye color car debated. Many prefer blue eyes, but some favor shades of plain ol' brown.
That's a very good answer. I often think that it would be very boring if everyone fit into the current "physically attractive" mode, whatever that may be.
The overall beauty of humanity is in its diversity and variation as well as its commonality.
