    Kindness and a sense of humor makes a man beautiful to me. Physical
    attractiveness is just a bonus.

    I think having an y-chromosome makes you a beautiful man :)

    I find it pretty sad and stupid that in some countries, for the natives,
    the more occidental you look, the better, the sexy tanned indian that needs
    to be whiter, the hot asian that needs to have a double eyelid, the south
    africans that features mostly white people in magazines instead of handsome
    black mens, these people really don’t know what they’re missing, at least
    that means that there’s more for us !

    I think everyone is beautiful, Mens&Womens of all races :)

    You completely missed the brief on what Australian’s like. He should have
    been the most rugged man up there, instead you gave us a US jock.

    We are beautiful by the way we are

  12. Gabby Avery says:

    This is so sad. It’s sad that we have to conform to society’s standard to
    become that perfect human being. People kill themselves everyday, go
    through depression because they’re focused on how they look. No wonder the
    depression rate has increased in these past years, videos like these, the
    entertainment industry, magazines, etc all don’t help with this problem :/

    This video is so upsetting 🙁 It’s bad enough that there’s loads of
    pressure on women to look “perfect” but now men? Every man on this video
    and in the rest of the world is handsome and awesome in their own way! Now
    if you can’t accept that then move along. Society is so fucked up these

    If I say I like guys with nice smiles, is that a beauty standard? If it is,
    I guess I shouldn’t say that anymore :/

    The whole “sexually objectifying women/men” thing is fucking ridiculous.
    Think of it this way; blaming the media for your low self-esteem and image
    issues is like blaming McDonald’s for making you fat. While it is
    technically true, it’s also entirely based on personal choice. If your
    unable to distinguish between the media’s beauty standards and real life
    beauty standards, then you’re probably unable to distinguish reality from
    fiction and should probably learn to stop treating everything as an attack
    on you as a person, because most of the time it isn’t.
