Beautiful, adj. Distorted and unnatural.

One of the enduring aspects of human culture is a tradition which
universally establishes a single standard of beauty, one for the male
body and (especially) one for the female.

There is some feature which may be attractive, and is exaggerated out
of all proportion. Or, alternately, some feature which is
unattractive, and is exaggerated out of all proportion.

Because a long and slender neck looks beautiful, a nice contrast to
the thick bulges of a man's shape, there's a tribe in Africa which
uses copper braces to stretch out women's necks to be a foot long.

China, noting that men have big feet and a feminine shape involves
small feet, has the practice of footbinding, using the one kind of
footwear tighter than climbing boots in order to painfully keep feet
from growing any larger than those of a little girl.

Recent anthropological findings report an obscure culture which has
successfully made the transition from ridiculous to bombastic. It has
decided that the roundness of feminine beauty should be replaced with
the shape of a pre-pubescent boy, and reacted to modern technology by
using the woman's body as a repository for gelatinous capsules.
