there is an 'appreciation of male beauty' thread on this site too. a simple search would have found that kuzzy.
and as to whether superficial critique of appearance is warranted - if a woman or a man is going to be in the business of posing for pictures and having them posted in newspapers and online, she or he has opened him or herself up to exactly those critiques. if you don't like it, no one is telling you to open the thread.
feel free to post all the pics of men you want in the appreciation of male beauty thread. you re welcome to have all the conversation you wish with whomever chooses to engage in that thread.
