You may or may not know this but I am 100% bi-sexual. Me and a girlfriend of mine got into a debate about what is pretty and what is not. So as I often say now, "OFF TO THINK ATHEIST INTERWEBS TO ASK RATIONAL PEOPLE!"
So here I am with a few questions:
I will be at work most of the day but I will be able to read most of your responses on my phone.
"She's plastic" never really entered my head when considering her attractiveness.
I'm pretty sure my opinion wouldn't change at all, though I'd still wonder about her lips, which don't look right.
If she naturally appeared like all of the countless glamorized, homoginized women present in the media, I would still searching for something deeper, something to make her seem like an individual. I am unmoved by this expression of beauty, although I can clinically identify it as attractive.
I did not base my opinion on knowing if the girls features were natural; however, my opinion was influenced on knowing that she was dressed(or lacking dress) for a shoot and posing for one. So if I was walking down the beach and saw a girl posing that way at me with her top off First I would be looking around for hidden cameras. Second I would think there was something wrong with the poor girl and I would want to help her. And yes I would be totally checking out her boobs but trying to show it.
Simple, I wouldn't believe the claim. It would only affect my opinion on the person who would try to sell me such misinformation.
In all honesty the first thing (and usually is) I noticed were her eyes. Eyes can tell you alot about something/someone.
Unfortunately I'm human, so the second part, (the body) is nice too. In all honesty however, I can't tell you if I would find her attractive as I value intellect above any of the aformentioned things.
i'm bi-sexual as well.
1) turn on: hair
2) turn off: body, face
3) she's considered beautiful by society because she's photoshopped.
4) i think she'd be beautiful without makeup
5) nipples or not, i still don't find her attractive
6) yes i did because it's there & i can
everyone has different tastes tho.
I think it's important that the community go "off topic" sometimes. You can't build a real relationship with other people based only on one thing you have in common. I'm here to make friends and enjoy myself.
I object. I want Sophie to continue asking us rational people what we think about these pictures. :)
welcome to the forum, Jackie. This is a site FOR Atheists, not ABOUT atheism. It just so happens that many topics are about religion and rational discussions.
But think about it - This type of post would maybe not even get accepted on a Christian forum. I mean , I could be wrong.
So the forum itself isn't 'off topic' to this degree, but there are many things about politics, social matters, etc that still have a connection to religion that is discussed.
Stick around, you might like it here.
You're not alone. Upon seeing the topic, I immediately thought, "Relevance?" Seems pretty random. Then I thought, "Oh, joy! Another post where we evaluate the image of a woman. Nuuurrrp, the atheist community is completely perfect; it has nothing to gain from exploring feminism. This isn't alienating at all." Upon investigation of the post, I am still questioning the point of this exercise.
You appear to be finding yourself in a very small minority. Whether that means you have better mental facilities or not than those who bit on the topic can probably be debated. :)
I think that is an excellent point.
But so, too, was the point that an athiesm forum by necessity has to conatin content that is not, by strict definition, atheistic. How boring if all we did was discuss how we don't believe in a god or gods and things like Humanism, civil rights, etc. were taboo because they are not about the unbelief in deities?
But your point is really good, too.
