If you're looking for a news source with absolutely zero bias, you'll be searching 'til your deathday.

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  :roll: 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).

I'm talking about the current Western standard of physical beauty.
Unfortunately that implies there's but a single standard.

author=Man Green]A person's value is not, or should not be, defined by her breedability.

This is true. However there are different sorts of value like there are of beauty, and one sort of value is breeding value, which is most certainly (and redundantly) defined by their breedability (which again is subjective depending on both what makes a given partner genetically ideal for the individual, and what makes a given partner aesthetically ideal).

I agree with your overall point and I think that most people would. It's no secret that one of the thousands upon thousands of symptoms of the disease known as "civilization" is that beauty, like every other thing people value has become mass-produced and mass-consumed.

That said there is merit to valuing beauty on an individual scale. It's really not so much that people consciously base their opinion of a person's overall regard solely on how good-lookin' they are, but it's of course simple animal instinct to pay more attention to the sexy ones.

Answer me this, folks; is the "beauty" of an immensely attractive human being the same beauty as the "beauty" of some immensely beauteous nature (for example an Edenic river valley or a tropical paradise et al.)? What about the "beauty" of a beautiful feeling (like, for example, an orgasm? That's pretty beautiful)?

If they're the same beauty, then this discussion has been thrown wide open. If they're not, "beauty" should be defined much more narrowly if just for the threadly purposes. If one looks hard enough one can find some form of beauty in any old thing.

That'd be bestest, I'd say. Of course, he'd soon become someone else's problem (hopefully his own).

From all these threads you're making it would seem you're hellbent on actually, genuinely convincing a good and pure individual of this community to go live in that horrendous desert wasteland you have befuddlingly steaded your home on... Why is that? Must we all make the horrible decision to live in the desert before you're satisfied?   :sad:

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.
He can't. :D

What have you got against happenstance anyway, Nigel?

Or beauty,for that matter? Beauty means something different for everyone else - and that, my brothers and sisters, is a truly beautiful thing.  :roll:

First Andre the Giant and now this?

I'm going to lock myself in a room and eat nothing but air and drink nothing but my urine forEVER, until my favorite people stop dying...

That's very cool, I can only imagine how a punkin-fermented mead would taste... Sounds like the CO2 should vent without any problems, but don't quote me on that because for all I know you may be cleaning it off your walls by tomorrow :P

Wait -- did you just announce that since finding your Discordia, you've become a massive prick?

If so, you're among friends.
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)

Tell him to keep his racial remarks in private and to rail on only in his head about how horrifyingly fat (a) woman/en may or may not be, like all the rest of us do.

Unless he of course has such a mass volume of dickish thoughts that he needs to let them out lest they saturate his bloodstream and result in a toxic death for him. Maybe he is a shithead-by-prescription.

Awesome awesome awesome. As soon as I saw this thread I grinned; I was sure some fellow Discordians would also be homebrewers, but I would never have guessed so many. Wicked!

I just bottled my second batch of mead, this one in question was a cyser with some banana, vanilla and cinnamon with a lager yeast, backsweetened with a little honey water. I've called it my "Golden Apple Mead," in honor of Goddess and because vacuumous consumption of the stuff will swiftly induce powerful Eristic episodes.

Hello folks. It's a truly astronomical pleasure to be making all your collective acquaintancies. I've been walking the winding and strange-odored path of Eris for just over two years now and the pursuit of understanding the world from a Discordian perspective has taken me from a degenerate slacker with a passing interest in philosophy and a tiny dick, to an eminent genius, a veritable demigod of humility with a mean ontological streak, known for being horse-hung.

Can't wait to descend into the debauchery with you fine individuals.
