Consensus about what is beautiful is something very relative.

I focus on skin tone, wide hips (that follow the waist-hip-ratio of .7X=X), and a flat stomach (from aerobic kind exersice, not anorexia nor anaerobic exersice). Also, im tired of fucking only seeing brown and hazel eyes around here.

I couldnt care less about lips.

You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Sure it is. A person's idea of beauty falls back on what you are taught/brainwashed to be considered beautiful. ESPECIALLY through mass marketing, but also through cultural and social acceptances. Wouldn't it be relative to those factors?

Within a mass-media framework, you are expected to say this:


NO.  IT ISN'T.

But its not true.

Pain is an illusion.

you can blow your esophagus out.

The esophagus, however, is quite real.

Your object in the sentence is still consensus. Your sentence is calling consensus relative. Haha!
