calling a direct link to mutation load, also explains why better-looking people age slower and the high IQ, high attractiveness correlation

“There is a shared concept of what constitutes an “ideal” face. Anthropometric methods are preferable to cephalometric methods in determining the “ideal” face’s dimensions, since anthropometric methods are valid, three-dimensional, non-invasive, suitable for a great variety of purposes, and easy to implement
“distinguishing features make it extraordinarily beautiful. Such features make a female face appear both child like and mature as well as expressive.”

maybe it’s called the male gaze because it’s more objective? lucky for men

a small breather from all the nonsense clogging the net tubes

like, at this point-

“The last decade has witnessed an upsurge of interest in the research on facial attractiveness. The development of computer graphics has allowed to objectively investigate the conserved features of attractive faces. Averageness, symmetry and sex-specific traits have been associated with attractiveness.”

you’d have to be an idiot

“I know you are beautiful even without looking at you: discrimination of facial beauty in peripheral vision.”
