What women's standards should be?
A woman should be happy to be whatever size she is and should be happy even if she doesn't have curves. Not all women wear makeup so why should they be judged for a simple preference or maybe because they are allergic to it!
In some countries and cultures, body hair is actually attractive. Some people keep their leg hair, arm hair, armpit hair and pubic hair.
Beauty standards are just there to make people feel bad so if those standards were open for all women who were all shapes and sizes, wear whatever they choose to wear, keep the body hair they want to have and not wear makeup if they want to.
What do you think about our society's beauty standards?
What men's standards should be!
Men get judged for wearing makeup but for some people it is their culture or it goes with their personality. With some music types, makeup is worn by men and it is completely normal. Those men get judged because they "shouldn't" wear makeup. Who is society to say a man can't wear makeup?
Some men refuse to have body hair because of discomfort and others keep their body hair because they could care less about removing it or they would rather spend their time doing other things. Some actually want to keep a big beard and don't care if it gets out of control.
Zits are a fact of life and who cares if people get zits! If they clean their face so that it is still clean and doesn't smell weird, who is society to say they shouldn't have them. Sometimes it just happens to be that way.
Not everyone can get muscles even if they workout every 2 days and take protein powder. They shouldn't be judged for not being able to have muscles and some people just don't want muscles!
People should be free to look the way they want to look. It can be for cultural reasons or for simply personal reasons.
Who cares if someone is fat or skinny? Who cares if someone, man or woman, wears makeup? What if a woman has muscles? Good for her! What if a man has no muscles? It's his choice!
