I have an amazing husband that tells me I'm beautiful every day. He always makes me feel beautiful (even when I don't think I'm looking so great haha). So yes, I do feel beautiful :) words are powerful.

What the hell does it mean to "feel beautiful"?

Guys really can't answer this question.

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.

Man is not inherently "beautiful". There is a certain beauty in his creation, but not in his bodily form. He is made to labor, not to look beautiful.

I think you misunderstand the concept.

"Inner beauty"? I get it. But I think that is the wrong word. Beauty is reserved for women. Things like "courage"

Are you kidding me? Beauty is not reserved for women, everything God made is beautiful. The male body is glorious. I can't even begin to describe how beautiful I think it is. And as far as the courage thing, girls can be courageous, too.

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.

strawberryerrie soldier at heart
10/22/14 7:04 pm

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.

It's an SoH poll, do you really think he is asking for "depth"?

Men to work and be good husbands and fathers, women to bear children and be good wives and mothers.

strawberryerrie soldier at heart
10/22/14 7:15 pm

Depth doesn't necessarily equal beauty, but it doesn't really matter here, I guess. I think men are just wonderful. And if you truly think women are solely made for having babies, you'd love me. :P

Age is irrelevant. This new perversion of woman has to be done away with. Woman is to stay in the home to tend to her children and husband, who must go out and toil in the "labor juicer".

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.

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!"

Your opinion. But, of course, neither of us is a professional. Reading various articles by medical professionals, even they have mixed opinions.

It matters to our children and our future. Are we going to allow them to grow up in a world with obviously mentally unstable people walking around them?

10/22/14 1:02 pm

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?

Any doctor that takes money to butcher the mentally ill should have their licenses pulled.

Because sometimes treating the physical can help with the mental, like my student covered in scars from a fire.

I thought you meant some fake boobs or lips. I wasn't talking about charred skin from a fire or something similar. Those that get surgeries, because they hate themselves, due to their mental disorder.
