Oh Thank Maude

Science explains why beauty is in the eye of the beholder: "Is that guy sexy? Is that woman beautiful? If you ask these questions to a group of people, they may have different answers, and a new study hints at why: Your perception of other people's attractiveness is mainly the result of your own experiences."

It's about time we had SCIENTIFIC PROOF that individual human beings have individual lived experiences that influence our individual preferences and choices!

I just hope someone quickly funds a study to prove that some of these individuals are WRONG, lest we start getting the idea that beauty itself is entirely subjective.
