What about the ‘beauty’ you don’t like? I had a long conversation in a Facebook thread this week. We were talking about some people’s discomfort at how much skin is shown in today’s American society. The other person in the conversation (a woman) thinks most of a woman or man’s body should be seen only by their spouse. She thinks it demeans and dilutes a marriage for people to show off their bodies in skimpy attire and skimpy bathing suits.
The flip side is to make sure that, while she has the freedom to express and pursue her own ideas of beauty, she shouldn’t take that idea of beauty and make it absolute for others (and neither should anyone else).
