The Physical Aspects
Almost any description of beauty begins with what a person or object looks like to the viewer. Several people may agree a certain look is a good basis for choosing to believe someone is beautiful, but it is generally about the physical aspects of a person or item. When it comes to men, those attributes are often dismissed in favour of their attitude, their abilities, and even their clothing may be included. A man’s physical beauty can be apparent even without being commented upon.
Strong muscles are often touted as important for men, and those men in good shape may have them. If their muscles are properly exercised and defined, that could be one overlooked aspect of their beauty. People tend to accentuate the strength in the muscles rather than their shape or definition. An open outlook without prejudice toward men could include a comment on this aspect of a male person.
One of the ways beauty is defined is how symmetrical a person’s features are when viewed. Women can be accepted or rejected as beautiful by this definition, yet many ignore it in men. While one reason could be that a man’s facial hair blocks their symmetrical features, that is not always true. It just seems to be that even the men with the most symmetrical features available are called handsome or manly, but they are seldom called beautiful.
There are many different ways to define people. Yet few are willing to claim any man is beautiful. There may be a few with classical features defined in that manner, yet few would be willing to openly admit it. Taking a new look at men could provide a surprising new attitude about beauty and its definitions for all people.
