Ladies, youve got to give yourselves more credit. If you're anything like the intelligent women I walk by every day, at least 80% of yall are beautiful.

Yes. Especially in their behaviors toward other people. Beautiful is not the opposite of masculine. Personally, I think it complements it.

You are also a bigot, but unfortunately there's nothing the doctors can do about that.

Here is a scholarly article on the differences between Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Gender Identity Disorder. You appear to be confusing the two conditions.

And the person whom you are alluding to (not too subtly) does not hate herself, like to frighten children or say, "Take that, society!"

No. I have Body Dysmorphic Disorder. I am a female because I said so and I hate myself. I like to frighten children. Take that society! You can't do anything about it.

Hollywood, television, and pop culture have raised unrealistically high standards of what constitutes proper appearance for both sexes. Many are then left feeling substandard and inadequate, or encouraged to rate others and self on appearance alone.

Sure, they can. The word beautiful isn't really tied to any gender apart from the ridiculousness society has imposed upon us. But beauty goes beyond appearances.

Examine my first answer. Beauty in the way that the question asks is what I speak of. Outward. Men are not outwardly beautiful. If they are, then they are not very manly. We are supposed to be just that, manly.

She (it's obvious who you mean) has a responsible job, helping people every day. From what I have seen on SOH, I see no danger to children, from having her "walking around in the world." Anyway, what is your proposed solution to the perceived danger?

I think my face looks alright, but I'm overweight. Fighting some pretty crazy genetics (dad was nearly 500lbs). I eat healthy, exercise daily and watch my calories. But, I also brew beer. I like to drink it too. :/ What do I do? Give it all away?

Well the question doesn't mention inner or outer beauty. And men were not made to be ugly and women were not made just to be beautiful/have babies. Sorry if anyone disagrees.
