This article  talks about the way our understanding of beauty changes throughout time and why we think something is beautiful or ugly.
The main argument is that beauty is boring while ugliness is better because our opinions about it are stronger. Do you agree?
Another theory is that we only think things are beautiful because we compare them to things which are ugly. What do you think? If everything was beautiful, would we think nothing is beautiful?
The writer also mentions the evolutionary advantage of beauty; do you agree that beautiful people have more benefits? Have you ever experienced a situation where you were treated depending on how you look? Is it important to be a little superficial?
Do you agree that what we think is beautiful now will be considered to be ugly later? What about something that is ugly now, will it be beautiful later? Can you think of an example where people’s opinions have switched?
Let us know how you feel about beauty and ugliness. Comment and share with your friends and join the discussion!
