From the Department of Critically Needed New Technology
What is it that the world really needs? What should we be devoting our time, energy, and talent to, in order to make this a better world? Climate research? No. Renewable energy? No. Sustainable living? No. Gardening with native plants? No.
What we really need is some computer software that can “judge” how attractive women are.
We can thank Amit Kagian at Tel Aviv University for this great gift to humankind – I’m sorry, mankind. Because what we have really been needing is a new method of judging (heterosexual, I’m sure)) standards of female beauty.
As if we didn’t already have 10 gazillion magazines, tv shows, and movies to tell us what the “accepted” standard of female beauty is.
The study only covered female faces because “there is a greater variety of positions regarding male beauty,”
Oh yeah. All of us – white women, black women, asian women, hispanic women, homosexual men – all agree on what counts as male beauty. I’m sure the Bear contingent of the male homosexual community will totally agree with what white women in New York City think counts as male beauty.
Take home message: women have beauty, which can be quantified, but men are all the same.
Sooooo glad to see that years of research time were spent on this important project.
