TROM Poems – The Ugliness of Beauty

The Ugliness of Beauty What is beautiful to you doesn’t automatically
make it beautiful for others too. Your personal experiences and cultural background
determine your conditioned view.>From 12 inch waist to higher
foreheads to elongated necks, Female beauty is continuously changing
and subjectively defined, so there will always be new looks
and trends that pop up next. And so it goes for men: from
bodybuilders to wigs to high heels, To all kind of other deviations
you may even consider surreal. This means that beauty is relative; Culturally subjective; a completely
abstract matter of perspective. It might help to think about what a born
blind person might consider beautiful. It would most likely be less visual
and far more tactile and acoustical. However whether it is tall, short, loud, quiet,
obese, skinny, bald, hairy, black, tan or white, Human attraction is so diverse that it’s impossible to say
this is wrong or right, Except for yourself, your own
culturally shaped appetite. Fashion, looks, even music, paintings
and architecture change year after year from place to place. So don’t worry too much about what
other people are taught to think about the structure of your face. But we all know that’s not easy with
all the advertisement designed to make the average person feel
insufficient and insecure, just so the cosmetics industry
can make billions of dollars selling more makeup, botox and all kinds
of surgery as the well marketed cure. Know that whenever you deal with people’s
opinions, like with what’s ugly or pretty, you’re really dealing with learned and
continuously changing positions. To quote Jacque Fresco, “If you marry a
woman who you think is very beautiful and she ends up being cruel to you
that face becomes ugly.” So your perspective keeps altering
based on whatever you run into. So as beauty and ugliness are temporally
and culturally relative notions then perhaps we should stop dividing
people on who’s subjectively prettier but rather try to move beyond
anatomical comparing and focus a little less
on the physical exterior. Everything I’ve said is not intended
to diminish or insult anyone. All I’m saying is that the relativity
of beauty concerns everyone, And that a better understanding of it could perhaps
create a less comparative world one by one. To understand more please read the TROM book
