Women and Beauty


It is sad to me, the way humans focus on the physical attributes of women. The sacred role of "mother" has been disgraced, now a wife is expected to have a baby then slip back into her size zero "skinny jeans" in a week, be back on the job in two weeks, and have a permanent "come hither" look tattooed on her face. The expectations have become so ridiculous that now women just assume they are ugly, it seems.

Ladies of the DP, I think you are absolutely friggin' BEAUTIFUL, even if you have warts on your nose, ears that flap in the breeze and a butt that does, too. That love of liberty just looks damn fine on you!

Women are life's most delightful mystery, even to themselves.

The first time I met the mother of a long-ago girlfriend of mine, she was wearing a bikini. She was 60 years old, but NOTHING about her looked 60. Beautiful women are a delight to the senses. Let THEM worry whether or not they are obsessed with their appearances. I pity any man who fails to take in account the whole women; if he overlooks the inner spirit, he clearly misses the best part.

Something Fishy

I don't think she would object to my posting the following lightly edited communication:

Hey farmer!
We were computerless for a while. By the time we replaced the computer my inbox was out of control. I tried to find the ones from actual people, but I guess I missed some.

It is crazy busy harvest time right now. Year after year I fret that my garden is too small, not healthy, not doing well, too weedy... and then by fall I am frantic trying to put up all the food my too small, unhealthy, weedy garden produces... lol!

Please tell ThereIsNoSpoon that I appreciate the thought. I do miss the people there, I miss the incredible brain trust it has proven it can be. I am just trying to go where the Universe leads me, and it seems it was time for me to not be on the dailypaul for a while. For a long time, I felt all but compelled to speak out, dig for truth, tell anyone who would listen what I found. Now it feels like it is time for me to observe, to rest and prepare... everything has its season. My season at the DP seems to have passed. I am grateful beyond words for the wonderful people that came into my life. Whatever the DP is now, it will always be the place where something amazing began. No one can stop what has begun.

Hope you and yours are well and happy!

Much love-

Thanks farmer


I agree about the beauty

This is what I'm looking for in a wife.

Great Post!

Thanks for sharing...

She misses the Daily Paul...

And so do I.

Are you in contact with her?


It's no secret that the majority of women

in this country are shallow minded. I'm so glad my wife is not one of them.

Most men I know

are focused on integral beauty.

This external beauty bs is just that. Don't pay attention to tabloids.

Media garbage. Real men either seek solace or seek out mates of intelligence.

Like Tim Leary said "Intelligence is the ultimate aphrodesiac" in many more ways. Nefarious and Innocent.

Innocence prevails.

i love all the women of liberty <3

Beauty is within all of you ;)

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You know what's even more

You know what's even more beautiful, this wonderful endeavour was sponsored by a business. Not by government or a charity group. Proves how free market can create beautiful things like this yadda yadda yadda... :)



totally kidding

totally kidding

it is kind of sad to watch

I have a much better view of myself than these women. Although I am also sure other people see me differently than I see myself. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.

Thanks Fishy!

As usual, under the surface of our populists

one can find a closeted progressive. This whining about "expectations" is very irrational and "progressive." Populists are also appalled that some would expect rational thinking from them, not just whining based on emotions like collectivists (religious and atheists) do.

I'll be blunt... This post is

I'll be blunt... This post is worthlessly stupid.

Thanks for the bump.

Interesting, I try to bump the posts I find worthwhile, but whatever. It had value to me, and that value is not diminished by your attitude, and it is enhanced by your bump. Thank you.

Beauty is only skin deep......

but ugly goes all the way down to the bone.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

YG is the most beautiful woman on the DP.



The qualities that attract me

The qualities that attract me to a woman are intelligence, maturity, playfulness, experience and beauty, in that order.

Beauty is objective to some degree though. High cheekbones, full lips, eyes, not too close together not too far apart, wide forehead, tapered jaw, good hair, slim/svelte figure, small feet. Phew!

Unfortunately, with a stranger beauty is the first thing you notice. But in the long run that's not the most important thing for me.

I think in your OP what you're quantifying is 'attractiveness' rather than physical beauty.

Ladies , keep your bras and

Ladies , keep your bras and burn your makeup!

Burn them both

There is strong suspicion that bras cause breast cancer. A study that showed it was "debunked"
"According to critics, however, the bra-caused breast cancer theory is not supported by sufficient evidence. Scientists say the research of Singer and Grismaijer failed to exclude confounding variables such as the presence in some women of known risk factors for breast cancer. Thus, the notion of a correlation between wearing a bra and breast cancer does not appear to hold up."

However, statistics tell interesting stories. You would think the most developed countries would have the best success in fighting breast cancer, they have all the modern medicine tests, drugs, surgeries, are the most educated in prevention and self-exam for early detection.... So why this?

"Breast cancer incidence and mortality rates remain highest in developed countries compared with developing countries..."

What do developed countries have that developing countries lack? Bras on the women.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Oh Jesus Christ

now everything causes cancer. What a dumb point.

Those "undeveloped" countries are also full of women with nasty titties that sag down to their knees.

and you have

something nasty hanging down, too. I think you should wrap a rubber band around it and cinch it to your waist. I don't care if it constricts your lymph and blood flow, I don't care if it is uncomfortable, I want you to look hot for me.
There are a few shallow replies on here, but yours is really lame.
