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.

Study: Women like men (not testosterone)

TLDR: Looks count, bitch!

“Data from almost 600 participants show that women’s perceptions of male attractiveness do not vary according to their hormone levels, in contrast with some previous research.”

Told. You. So.

A better question, how did I know this?

Years ahead of time.

(Apart from my own sample size of numero uno).

They aren’t controlling for male beauty!

In an ATTRACTIVENESS study.

It isn’t just something nurture, perceived, externally, it’s innate, it’s nature!

It’s BONE STRUCTURE.

HORMONE CYCLES DON’T DAMAGE THEIR EYE SIGHT!

The natural looks of a man draw the woman, it’s genetic fitness FFS!

(And no, packing on the muscle doesn’t really change your face).

“”We found no evidence that changes in hormone levels influence the type of men women find attractive,” say lead researcher Benedict C. Jones of the University of Glasgow.

You know, I know this might sound controversial, but someone told me once that, well, water is wet? Big if true.

Who might women find more attractive?

The richer ones? The weirder ones?

or

THE MORE ATTRACTIVE ONES.

[Fuck’s sake, people.]

“This study is noteworthy for its scale and scope — previous studies typically examined small samples of women using limited measures,” Jones explains. “With much larger sample sizes and direct measures of hormonal status, we weren’t able to replicate effects of hormones on women’s preferences for masculine faces.””

With a solid method, lookism is real.

Accept it.

We don’t like a higher-T lesbian compared to a low-T man, do we?

LOGICALLY.

They’re scared to offend ugly men. It’s the current year.

Your beauty is objective and the opposite sex care.

Sorry if the social construct upsets you but we can’t help evolution, cry in a safe space free of GI Joes to trigger you about your terrible stature.

Male beauty correlates to right-wing position

Strong men aren’t much into helping the weaker competition, since your genetic looks are an advertisement.

(You could argue lifting weights is ‘lying’ about your natural somatoform and strength level, much like applying excess makeup to alter bone structure, fake masculinity and fake femininity, much like muscle implants or breast implants give off false cues about fertility and chemical dimorphism.)

You might disagree with my use of the term ‘male beauty’ but if we’re studying female constantly it follows there must also be a standard for men even if you prefer to call it handsomeness… it’s still beauty.

I love how the method is biased but the result came shining through.

“Both the simple and complex social bargaining models received partial support: sociopolitical egalitarianism was negatively related to bodily formidability, but unrelated to other measures of bodily/facial formidability/attractiveness; and a formidability-wealth interaction did predict variance in support for redistribution, but the nature of this interaction differed somewhat from that reported in previous research. Results of the experimental manipulation suggested that egalitarianism is unaffected by self-perceived formidability in the immediate short-term. In sum, results provided some support for both the simple and complex social bargaining models, but suggested that further research is needed to explain why male formidability/attractiveness and egalitarianism are so often negatively related.”

Now a study about the women, to make it scientific.

Female attractiveness and male resources, an exchange

As explained by Monroe.

Don’t you know that a man being rich is like a girl being pretty?

You wouldn’t marry a girl just because she’s pretty….

But my goodness, doesn’t it help?

And if you had a daughter, wouldn’t you rather she didn’t marry a poor man?

You’d want her to have the most wonderful things in the world and be very happy.

Why is it wrong for me to want those things?

Telling a woman not to crave the security to raise her children is like telling men to have children with ugly women out of pity because don’t they deserve a chance? It’s unnatural and wrong, morally.

If you don’t like it, get a sex change.

These are evolved response sets.

Men want babies. They crave sex and companionship.

Women want babies. They crave love and commitment, and isn’t the last easier with a man who can afford to commit time, too?

They miss out one thing: the higher rate of harassment and stalkers.
Obviously anyone can have antisocial troubles, but if you present as bait or alluring, it’s more likely. The Bitch Shield should really be the Model Shield but the blokes coming up with this stuff aren’t bi so they don’t notice. It’s too easy to approach someone based on a thing they aren’t trying to be and force them into your expectations so you can use them. Nobody wants to feel used. And people do want to exploit it to make themselves feel better or look good. Doesn’t need to be sexual at all. It’s social, primarily.

Otherwise, yes, I identify with all of these partially. I think a lot of people identify with identity crises based on how we look and how much it informs other’s treatment of us.

friendly happy nice smile relaxed pretty

If you aren’t nice on the inside to match, at all times, people are likely to blame the outside, when it might be an off day or their rude treatment causing it. Sticking up for oneself is bitchy, you’re expected to be nice as apology for something you often dress down. It’s like being famous but with all the downsides of attention and paranoia. Attention leads to kidnap and rape, and creepy people will joke about these things to your face.

They mistakenly treat you like you’re thick too. Beckhap’s Law doesn’t really apply because IQ isn’t the only intelligence, it isn’t common sense, it’s too mathematical, and Beckhap ignores the moderate for the extreme. There is a moderate correlate of above-average IQ and above-average beauty. They don’t bother to get to know you because you’re just another attractive person to them. This never ends well. People keep trying to do you ‘favours’ to control you later (classic friendzone feign) or give you ‘free’ stuff, where there is always a string. Always.

We’re expected to take advantage of others, because from the outside we get stuff, stuff we want, sure, but the cost is always worse than earning it ourselves. Like dignity, or morality or something very obscure that sounds like a First World Problem. People keep insisting I go to their shows and sit in the front row.

fake smile laughing wait what wut eh huh be normal dexter

It feels like a weird topic to bring up. Like you can’t complain about a gift.
More of a curse nowadays. No politeness or societal protections, especially for women. I’ve known men be continuous victims of predatory women too. No respect, like they’re Ken dolls.

They are not there for you to play with. Respect their right to consent, to reject, to be without interference, like a beautiful bird… with abs.

I can’t go to Fashion Week stuff anymore, I get hassle. It makes me a sad panda.

When you meet a person, try to think what makes them unique, instead of drooling over them.

I don’t expect any of you to believe me, since you haven’t seen me.
Well, maybe you’d have seen me but you wouldn’t know it is me. Put it that way.
There’s a gloss of politeness a person over six? has to adopt, so less people randomly hate us, it makes intellect or wit less apparent. We get patient about showing the other sides to see if they treat us like dirt first, based on assumptions about our Look. The obvious ways they try to manipulate us like dumb little kids can be funny when it isn’t scary.

e.g.

Like no, I won’t let you buy me a drink, because then you’ll think you can talk to me and grab my upper thigh like a ghetto kid launching at KFC, like the last fifteen guys in the past hour, ranging in age from fake ID to old man that’s a creepy Santa. As it is, I get free ones from the bartender. Because he isn’t a jerk. So I’m nice. Attractive people are not constantly available or open for attention. They’re just people. I’m busy with a friend. Please leave. Please.

There’s an assumption that the way people treat you won’t get a differing reaction. You must either be rude to everyone or a ‘slut’ to everyone (being nice?). Nope. Better looking people are more polite but with stronger limits, to contrast with the catcalling monkeys that can literally follow you down a road mentioning lewd porn acts. Not OK. If we wanted to be treated like shit and controlled, we’d join the military and get paid. Or get a sugar daddy. Or become a model/actor/presenter. There are respectable ways to make money off being demeaned. Bloke number 324 who spends way too much time believing in the women of porn is deluded that a bitchy line is the magic word to Aladdin’s cave. Those do not exist. People don’t have passwords. STAHP.

Snape is underrated as an inspiration

Women are the more emotionally intelligent sex, right? We can tell when you lyin’.

It would be like expecting a magic line to make a man sign over his life savings. Not going to happen. Game is supposed to be about healthy social intercourse between the sexes, in theory, now it seems to be gimmicks and con tricks about dumb bitches and the insecure boys who pursue them only to complain they got hurt, in both cases.

But hey, at least I can explain how attractive people might view this topic. If you didn’t believe it’s relevant to me. I like being anon like this, it’s liberating. Nobody treats me nicely based on my looks because you assume I’m an ugly weeb. I’m just a person. Nobody should feel ashamed of presenting themselves well either, I’m not saying that, but the information is useful e.g. makeup is fine, as it can be tricksy to handle tactfully.
False modesty feels wrong when you’re lying about something everyone can see.
When someone insults your appearance it’s quite funny, because they’re always uglier, by a margin of at least 3 points and as many stone in fat, so we avoid more personal insults with a layer of dumb and assess what the other person projects onto us. Imagine if someone came up to you and started screaming because you looked like someone who bullied them at school. It’s weird.

Idiots can’t tell when you’re acting dumb but they get enraged when you’re smarter than them too. The word unfair is used.

Snape was a role model in some ways

It may be passive-aggressive or sarcastic, but we owe those people literally nothing. They didn’t approach us like a person but a product. screw ’em and their entitlement issues

Normally they throw out things that don’t even apply e.g. you’re old/ugly/nobody likes you/ things a schoolgirl would say. From a grown man. It’s sad but also funny? And they have no sympathy, not truly. No emotional connection, so a conversation is out of the question. They don’t see you as an equal, but a potential living sex doll. Bye, bitch. 

I had a post on mansplaining and what it really is if you’re attractive and men talk to you wherever you go. I should upload it.

Better-looking embrace inequality

http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/insights/researchers-few-bad-hair-days-can-change-your-life

The series of five studies conducted by Neale and Belmi, with participants that included both men and women, has important implications for research on inequality. If you believe you are attractive, you tend to think you belong in a higher social class yourself and believe, accordingly, that hierarchies are a legitimate way for organizing people and groups. You also are more likely to believe people lower down in a hierarchy are there because they deserve to be. The research also showed that self-perceived physical attractiveness mattered more to people’s perception of their social rank than their self-perceived goodness — qualities like empathy and integrity — did.

Good luck ironing out that kink.

They're so stupid it's a laughriot

The lookism people have a point. Both groups.
And a love of competency is natural too. If you have a bad leader, they don’t last long.

This research is the first to draw an explicit connection between people’s perceptions of their own physical attractiveness and their attitudes toward inequality and hierarchies. Among other things, it helps establish how malleable people’s views of inequality are.

No. No they aren’t. That’s the point. You can only boost your looks (SMV+MMV) by 2, 3 points maxed out.

Looks are important for men, case study hair

Holy hell I know straight men who’d go gay for 1940s man. Notice how different he looks? He looks like a different person in every era, because the hair styling accentuates or downplays different parts of him. In my estimation he goes from a 6 in some (70s ew) to a 10 in others (send me back to the 40s please). Grooming is important as hygiene, men are pretending to not understand as an excuse to be lazy but look! Look at what a difference it makes!

LOOKS ARE IMPORTANT.

Do you really think all the men bemoaning how women nowadays don’t dress well have no counterpart in the sex that single-handedly keeps the Looks Industry afloat?

Personally, I think it’s such a tragedy when a man with a strong razor-straight jawline grows a beard (beards were supposed to hide weak jawlines, men with good jaws should NEVER get them). He loses one of his best physical assets.
