Men vs women description

Post by Philosophy Explorer » Sat Jun 24, 2017 5:43 am

Normally eye-pleasing men are described as handsome while eye-pleasing women are described as beautiful, words that have similar meanings, yet terms that are normally applied to specific genders. Looking up etymologies wasn't helpful in this area.

This is the age of PC, yet these archaic practices persist.
I'm wondering how many terms with similar meanings are gender specific as I've just shown. And does this cause problems?

Men are not called "beautiful" because it is a well known fact Men are physically imperfect looking and usually uglier than women.

Women dont send messages to dudes online unless they are ACTUALLY PERFECT. this is because men have more ugly in them than women

I don't like to ask those who are incapable of responding so I won't waste my time on you.

The convention is that men are described as handsome and women are described as beautiful
Women describe men as beautiful too although no woman will ever be described as handsome

I am capable of responding, I gave you 2, no 3 responses actually.

You don't even write your words right.

Like are you seriously born yesterday and don't know the difference between handsome and beautiful?
