I’m kinda lazy today, so I’ve decided to throw up an Open Thread and make you all do all the work.
One of the ideas we talk about here at NSWATM a lot is the Myth of Men Not Being Hot: that is, the cultural notion that women are interested in men’s wallets or their sense of humor or their jerkishness, but certainly not their cute smile and nice ass. At the same time, for women, there’s the Beauty Myth: the idea that only a certain kind of woman (feminine, white, straight, cis, thin, young, body-hair-free, long-haired, large-breasted, wearing makeup…) is actually attractive, and everyone else is ugly as shit.
Now, of course, I can say that People Are Fucking Different and that everyone is attractive to someone as much as I like, but it seems to me the real thing we need here is evidence that a lot of different people find different things attractive.
So! In the comments, describe what you find hot– physical, personality, whatever. Pictures or videos are encouraged. Even if your tastes are totally normal, mention them: the point is diversity, not a different beauty standard. Don’t insult other people’s tastes, that’s a shitty thing to do; this is supposed to be a happy thread and give me a break.
