MysticWicks endorsement: ""Oooh, I'm a Discordian! I can do whatever I want! Which means I can just SAY I'm a pagan but I never bother doing rituals or studying any kind of sacred texts or developing a relationship with deity, etc! I can go around and not be Christian, but I won't quite be anything else either because I just can't commit and I can't be ARSED to commit!"

Rather than saying "it's OK to not be beautiful", we try to insist instead that people, women particularly, still have value because they have "beauty on the inside", or are "beautiful at any size", instead of validating the many other potential value sources they possess."We"? Speak for yourself, sister I understand entirely what you're saying, it just sort of seems like an obvious conclusion to come to for anyone with a brain that likes to use it. Society is addicted to the beauty myth and it's been that way for some years and it will likely go on that way for some more (at most, until atomic radiation turns us all into equally hideous abominations).
Unfortunately that implies there's but a single standard.I'm talking about the current Western standard of physical beauty.
author=Man Green]A person's value is not, or should not be, defined by her breedability.
He can't.And that's where you're wrong, Discordia is the nicest thing since a half and half on a hot summers missourah day..
Tell it to Troy.
Wait -- did you just announce that since finding your Discordia, you've become a massive prick?Thank gods, the last four doors I've knocked on have been nothing but fluffy hippies and kool-aid drinkers! It's good to meet some people who regard their insanity with utmost clarity (I've always said a good bout of mania is like spring cleaning for the brain)
If so, you're among friends.
