The Evolution of Beauty

When was the last time you saw a guy wear an outfit like this?
A more positive approach to the same theme that I posted on earlier would be to look at how far we've come.  Yes, there is still a standard of beauty to live up to, but it's not as bad as it used to be.  I think that today's current fashion gives girls more freedom than they've ever had before.  We used to squeeze our bodies into corsets to achieve that impossible waistline, kill our feet in high heels (or worse in China, break our feet to get them smaller), and weigh ourselves down with huge skirts.  This all adds up to constriction and pain.  On the contrary, current style (at least in California) calls for loose, comfortable clothing.  In addition to that, men tend to like curvier girls to stick thin ones.  That doesn't mean if your stick thin, you're not beautiful.  I'm just saying that if you aren't stick thin, don't kill yourself over dieting. We are evolutionizing the idea of beauty.  Being girls, we can wear skirts, shorts, pants, jumpsuits, etc. and get away with it.  Guys don't have that sort of freedom.  A guy who wears a skirt (unless it's a kilt) will probably be shunned, but a girl wearing pants is perfectly normal.  All I have to say is embrace your inner girl and don't worry so much about your appearance.
