Beauty: subjective or objective?
What is beauty?
Maybe some will say beauty is being unique, or simplicity is beauty. Maybe some will say beauty is having a chinky eyes, or curvy eyebrows will be perfect. Well, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, beauty is defined as the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit: loveliness.
But what does beauty really means? Is beauty defined by the color of your eyes? Is it measured by small waistlines and huge hips? Is it characterized by long, thin legs? Is it solely perceived by the naked eyes?
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it" quoted from the famous Chinese philosopher Confucius.
People tend to see beauty in something or someone that is pleasing to the eyes. The society is so screwed up that it is setting a rule that you need to be tall and skinny and have a fair complexion to be called beautiful.The norm has become a vicious disease that it changes the true concept of beauty. Beauty, apparently, is a judgement we make about things or people or places. It is subjective, not objective; personal, not universal. Beauty in the eye of a seven-year-old child is so petty and might be entirely different from a 27-year-old person’s perspective.There is no such thing as ultimate true beauty because you cannot compare beauty. We do not live all following the same standards or principles; we do not have the same ideals. We are different, so is beauty.
