But tongue posture varies by language (or race)

Given the lookism data and non-harmful, non-genetic nature of this, it seems fine.

However, it may only be possible to enhance certain races e.g. NW Europeans and native, dominant speakers of certain languages e.g. English, Old English.

I’m not messing with you. This once.

I haz receipts.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pronunciation_of_English_/r/
Peter Ladefoged wrote: “Many BBC English speakers have the tip of the tongue raised towards the roof of the mouth in the general location of the alveolar ridge, but many American English speakers simply bunch the body of the tongue up so that it is hard to say where the articulation is”.[6]

AHA.

The ‘orthotropic’ principle!

The extension to the IPA recommends the use of the IPA diacritics for “apical” and “centralized”, as in ⟨ɹ̺, ɹ̈⟩, to distinguish apical and domal articulations in transcription. However, this distinction has little or no perceptual consequence, and may vary idiosyncratically between individuals.[7]

Culturally, actually. Close.

How many of these guys with facial issues speak American, not proper English?

Not judging, per se, just ….noticing.

Why are the Brits considered generally better looking than comparable American men?

Could it be that, to us, they sound stupid because, among other things, they sound drunk? They literally sound like they’re slurring.

Again English English is the only real English, tongue posture is immensely important. It would be like using a hammer wrong and wondering why it hurts, this is important. Common Core is opposed to elocution lessons, wonder why.
And reminder, language is genetic in origin.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3355373/

“Mutation rates are required only for adding a time scale to both trees. Based on the topologies of trees generated from both the genetic and linguistic data, the inference of the parallel evolution of genes and languages in Caucasus is supported, despite controversies about the mutation rates.”

Parallel evolution, you can’t just take another race’s language and expect fluency on par with a genetic native. This might contribute to, say, Africans’ lower tests score, at least a little.

If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree etc.

The blogs full of historical handsome men leads me to believe Victorian English was particularly good for male facial structure (on women you don’t notice so much)


e.g. the difference to now in

“Flapped” or “Tapped” R: alveolar flap [ɾ] (About this soundlisten) (occurs in Scouse, most Scottish English, some South African, Welsh, conservative Irish and Northern England English, and early twentieth-century Received Pronunciation; not to be confused with flapping of /t/ and /d/)

A lot of Welsh models, almost untouched pristine language rearing, just saying. If a beautiful Welshman moves to America and adopts the accent, over time his facial beauty weakens.

18th and 19th century Americans (listen on youtube) sounded British. Rural British.

This faded out mid-20th century, with the rise of TV monoculture, when the American man’s face seemed to weirdly cave in like a child’s.

Gay men with excellent facial beauty (women admire) also have precise language, old-fashioned dialect. They know, they’re shallow.

How many Hollywood actors are posh?

Schools used to teach elocution. Why no longer? It’s part of speaking a language.

I’ve actually had to tell men that texting over talking will weaken their jaw.

They didn’t know. It’s a MUSCLE.

The digital native Millennials have overall worse jawlines than Gen X. Coincidence?

When old people age, they have fewer people to talk to, speeding up atrophy.

I have met researchers on these disparate topics so can bring you these threads, albeit short of resolution. Research needed, obviously. It is just really interesting. Like, even eating with cutlery made white people have more civilized jaws.

But forcing the proven brain delay of bilinguilism is bad for them, not to mention could be impossible due to differences.

http://www.washington.edu/news/2016/06/13/success-in-second-language-learning-linked-to-genetic-and-brain-measures/

Genetic variations of the COMT gene and a measure of the strength of the brain’s communications network — known as “white matter”— jointly accounted for 46 percent of the reason for why some students performed better than others in the language class.

So girls are better at it.

A waste of a class, must never be compulsory.

But being well-spoken literally makes men hotter to women. We can see it in how their face moves.

How many rappers look like mouth-breathers? [Whites invented rap, called flyting].

Flyting is a ritual, poetic exchange of insults practised mainly between the 5th and 16th centuries. The root is the Old English word flītan meaning quarrel. Examples of flyting are found throughout Norse, Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Medieval literature involving both historical and mythological figures.

Crushes on matinee idols are not a coincidence. Speech, song, poetry. All of it helps.

Etiquette had benefits. I very much want to benefit from telling men this.

“Neotony” isn’t an Asian thing

If I don’t correct the pedophiles trying to feel normal, who will?

Humans are considered by some biologists to be a youthful looking species. We have weak (gracile) jaws compared to say, gorillas and large heads compared to say, chimps.
Stop trying to snowflake a biological possibility of prevalence.
It isn’t Asian or even characteristic of Asians (anime isn’t real!), it’s more prevalent in women than men (but common to humans) and can occur in Asians. However, most Asians have narrow, upturned (i.e. not round) and small eyes – thus cannot count under that heading. They are the least youthful on that feature!

You know, on average and before Daddy’s plastic pays for new plastic.
There are plenty of Asians who don’t have it (most by definition, attractive people are always a minority in their own population) and get the most surgery in the world to reset their masculine bone structure where possible in easy areas like the jawline and brow bone.

The technical un-PC term is “pedomorphic” so….

yeah…

Don’t go round telling people you find that hot.

Another error made on purpose by perverts?

Young isn’t the same as sexually immature. Men are sexually disgusted by signs of sexual immaturity so quit pushing that or show me some amazing, ironclad studies to back up your claim.

p.s. A fetish isn’t covered by sexual selection. Please stop getting evolution wrong, America! If you’d pass over the many white, black, whatever else women with larger eyes and smaller gracile (not under-developed/inbred/immature) chins then what you really have is Yellow Fever, a paraphilia (fetish). The Kibbe gamine type exists in all races and Asian culture expects women to fake it. So they do.

Youthful (but NOT immature!!!) features indicate health. That’s it. That’s all.
As in, an Asian looking really cute by plastic surgery with no waist, boyish hips and poor fertility doesn’t count under the biological model as fit. Because it isn’t real. Biology covers what is natural only. It also covers evolved historical conditions, new transportation and the race mixing that is possible isn’t covered because it’s novel. I’ve covered as much as possible that’s available to discuss online with the medical issues boyish women have with childbirth. If C-sections didn’t exist, a lot of Asian women would die, especially if the baby is half-white. Most women who go in for IVF are Asian (and have a higher failure rate than White women) and nobody knows why because nobody is allowed to study racial differences openly.

If they cared about these women, they’d study things to actually help them.

Fetishists miss the part about the eye shape and size because the common black eyes (again, contacts don’t count as genetic!) cue to their stupid brain that the woman is in love with them (pupil dilation) and not a threat.
Their cartoons look like white women, they get surgery/hair dye/makeup/skin glue/fake eyelashes to look like white women and their husbands cheat with Russian prostitutes. Actions speak louder than words.

What’s been called “psychological neotony” by some obvious pedophiles is emotional retardation and intellectual immaturity. That’s all retardation is, being stuck in an earlier stage of development. Humans have life stages, to not grow up is disturbed. They are just as bad as the vapid Valley girl.
If it’s vapid and stupid when white women do it, it’s the same when Asians do it. Stop white (yellow?) knighting. Fake femininity is obnoxious.
Neotony or in accurate anthropological terms, pedomorphology is allowed in society because we’re decadent, it is a sign of civilizational regression to encourage showy incompetence. It’s literally the female equivalent of the soyboy. They’re useless and act like children to get out of their citizen’s duties in life. And you’re falling for that?

It’s your life to ruin, I guess?

Black women have a tendency to act strong to get male resources, Asian women have a tendency to act weak to get male resources. White women can go either way with Eastern European acting weak and Western Europe acting strong(er).

But your hierarchy is fake science.

As a race, the “neotonous” features as characteristic belong to Europeans.
Show me a mathematical computer study that tops this.

Marquardt female ideal, sexually mature and youthful.

Proportionately large eyes, high, well-formed cheekbones, full but not huge lips and narrow mouth (youthful mouth indicator for femininity, not fullness which men have moreso) and a fine nasal bridge, soft brow bones and cherry chin, gracile thin jawline and thinner overall face shape closer to oval ideal, 2:1 ratio.

I drew this in case some bitch can’t do ratios.

Shapely philtrum (predicts uterine health), proportionate ears and nostrils (evolved to climate), healthy eye distance (neither too big or too small, beauty is healthy average because it shows a low mutation load)!

Fits closest to Europeans, matching up to corroborating dating site selection data and male preference attitude surveys who would preferentially date a European woman.

European fits it best based on youthful features, then Africans because they have large eyes and full lips and THEN Asians. The eye area is crucial for this. If you don’t have youthful eyes, you don’t have it.

One warning:

Looking like a baby also means looking like a boy, femininity is different. It is not childish, it’s womanly.

The classic beauty within her race does not look like a girl.

Femininity has certain features which coincide with youthful and healthy.

Women have longer, thinner faces including noses and paler skin than their racial male counterparts. This is constant throughout all races. Don’t look at models for an average, they’ve had work done.

Basic rundown for you to begin your own research.

I hate explaining the obvious. The white woman picture has filled lips, ignore that detail.

You might argue, where’s the Marquardt data for that?

Here’s the face-on beauty ideal for women from their global dataset.

Name that race.

Fully feminine and neotonous face with the contours shaded correctly.

Note the longer nose but more delicate bone structure (as opposed to yang angular).
Note the thinner face and reduced mouth width.

Basically everything above it.

Oval, check. Thin but not under-developed nose, check. Round curved brows, check. Narrow mouth with full lips (so incredibly proportionately feminine). Soft features including round normal eye shape, check. Heavily dimorphic, check. Long face compared to male average, check. Small but developed chin, check. High delicate cheekbones, check.

Example of those IRL.

This is so blitheringly obvious to me I struggle to put it into words.
I guess I’ve been trained to see this but did you never notice?

Really?

Pretty/cute/sexy are absolute shit compared to beauty.

Black women are higher on this trait of neotony than Asians and everyone talks about them like dirt when they don’t deserve it.

Africans have great eyelashes too, unlike the majority of Asian women.

The eye area is the hallmark of this trait. So African women can look great in 20s makeup.

I’m redpill which means I tell the truth, even when it isn’t about my own group.

Compare with the Asian standard model based on the dataset of averages.

Looks very masculine to me. Very angular, very strong, very yang.

No, neotony is the least Asian thing. I’m sure their surgeons will be pleased to hear you ever considered otherwise. One sign an Asian woman had surgery is that her chin now looks inbred and under-developed, like European royalty sometimes did.

Her larger Asian skull formed in the uterus and by chopping and sliding and trashing the bones to look more European, by proportion it now looks weird and doesn’t fit with the rest of the head’s bones.

There’s a definite look. Example in white people.

The chin looks weird. Not a good look.

Cute?

You can’t hide your real bone structure, even with surgery.

The skeleton is inside you.

Gene for nose shape found

http://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/news-articles/0516/190516-nose-shape

Figured I’d remind you this exists in light of  How To Judge People By What They Look Like’s detractors.

The four genes mainly affect the width and ‘pointiness’ of noses which vary greatly between different populations.

Populations = races

Pic or it didn’t happen

Compare to Marquardt’s work, which should be compared to character traits and faults in a meta-analysis.

Are people who fit this mask just good-looking or good people, period?

The researchers identified five genes which play a role in controlling the shape of specific facial features. DCHS2, RUNX2, GLI3 and PAX1 affect the width and pointiness of the nose and another gene – EDAR – affects chin protrusion.

See attractiveness tag.
Perception is invaluable.

“Few studies have looked at how normal facial features develop and those that have only looked at European populations, which show less diversity than the group we studied. What we’ve found are specific genes which influence the shape and size of individual features, which hasn’t been seen before.

try looking

“Finding out the role each gene plays helps us to piece together the evolutionary path from Neanderthal to modern humans. It brings us closer to understanding how genes influence the way we look, which is important for forensics applications,” said the first author of the report, Dr Kaustubh Adhikari, (UCL Cell & Developmental Biology).

Isn’t it a little superficial to assume the genes just code for appearance of the face and not the brain behind it? What about forehead size and brain size?

https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2003/sep/28/research.health

The study identified genes that are involved in bone and cartilage growth and the development of the face. GLI3, DCHS2 and PAX1 are all genes known to drive cartilage growth – GLI3 gave the strongest signal for controlling the breadth of nostrils, DCHS2 was found to control nose ‘pointiness’ and PAX1 also influences nostril breadth. RUNX2 which drives bone growth was seen to control nose bridge width.

hooks?

The genes GLI3, DCHS2 and RUNX2 are known to show strong signals of recent selection in modern humans compared to archaic humans such as Neanderthals and Denisovans; GLI3 in particular undergoing rapid evolution.

You should be forced to disclose any and all plastic surgeries before marriage, with photos of the real face. Otherwise it’s genetic fraud.

Guardian quote

Proper nourishment in early life and providing a stimulating intellectual environment are vital for achieving good brain growth and development and this lasts through life. In other words, brain growth in childhood is important not only in determining how bright you become but how bright you stay,‘ said Martyn.

‘That is the real message from this study: that we have to ensure infants and children are brought up in conditions that optimise brain growth – partly to provide us with lots of bright young adults but also to reduce risk of decline in higher mental function in old age.’

Study: The evolutionary psychology of facial beauty

Meta-analysis/Review paper. Top tier.

http://www.femininebeauty.info/f/rhodes.meta.analysis.pdf

What makes a face attractive and why do we have the preferences we do? Emergence of preferences early in development and cross-cultural agreement on attractiveness challenge a long-held view that our preferences reflect arbitrary standards of beauty set by cultures. Averageness, symmetry, and sexual dimorphism are good candidates for biologically based standards of beauty. A critical review and meta-analyses indicate that all three are attractive in both male and female faces and across cultures. Theorists have proposed that face preferences may be adaptations for mate choice because attractive traits signal important aspects of mate quality, such as health. Others have argued that they may simply be by-products of the way brains process information. Although often presented as alternatives, I argue that both kinds of selection pressures may have shaped our perceptions of facial beauty.
It confirms the obvious…
…..Femininity is the strongest component of female attractiveness, but it showed no association with health (although only one study has looked for this). Femininity may signal fertility rather than health per se (Johnston 2000, Johnston & Franklin 1993, Symons 1979). The reasoning is that high estrogen/androgen ratio are associated with both feminine characteristics (e.g., small jaw, full lips) and fertility. A preference for feminine faces, therefore, would target sexually mature females. Facial femininity could also signal individual differences in fertility in adult females, to the extent that femininity declines with age.
How men age in attractiveness wasn’t studied, nor cross-referenced with sperm quality, which pisses me off. I wanna see the data on that.
What do you expect, it’s mostly men conducting the studies in this field.
Recently, male facial attractiveness has been linked to genetic heterozygosity at sites involved in immune function. Future studies should determine which components of male attractiveness (masculinity, averageness, symmetry) mediate this link, and whether female attractiveness is also linked to heterozygosity at these sites. A more direct test of a link between attractiveness and immunocompetence could also be done by challenging the immune system.
However, this seems to reinforce a youth link in both sexes via immune function and cellular quality.

Paper: The Morphometrics of “Masculinity” in Human Faces

I’m a gift that keeps on giving today.

…We outline a morphometric strategy for estimating separately the face shape patterns that underlie perceived masculinity and maleness, and for computing individual scores for these shape patterns. We further show how faces with different degrees of masculinity or maleness can be constructed in a geometric morphometric framework. In an application of these methods to a set of human facial photographs, we found that shape features typically perceived as masculine are wide faces with a wide inter-orbital distance, a wide nose, thin lips, and a large and massive lower face. The individual expressions of this combination of shape features—the masculinity shape scores—were the best predictor of rated masculinity among the compared methods (r = 0.5). The shape features perceived as masculine only partly resembled the average face shape difference between males and females (sexual dimorphism). Discriminant functions and Procrustes distances to the female mean shape were poor predictors of perceived masculinity…

You can see when a man is low-T.

Or a woman is high-T.

Right off the bat, manly men have a more pronounced jaw (and chewing muscle which squares it off), flatter brows, broader face, wider nose, less point to tip projection and larger nostrils, even lips (female is bottom-heavy), smaller eyes which slant upward (as opposed to doe eyes which point down due to orbital space pressure) and less of a point to their chin.

Man, I love being right. Notice in the extreme feminine, the inner 2/3 of brow is thicker and thins toward the edge, the opposite of the male. What may seem like a larger chin in men is more of a broad fusion of the mandible at the centre than a specific trait (when it fuses wrong, you get cleft chins or a dimple). Large cherry chins are rather feminine. Female eye distance can be greater if the chin and facial shape points down, giving a childlike triangle look.
