"as i recall fat chicks were considered beautiful."
This is the Venus of Willendorf. Shes about 23000 years old and looking pretty good for her age I think.
Ive no idea what these peoples names are. Theyre about 23 years old. Tell me a nice safe cave, a warm fire to keep out the snow and wolves, some animal pelts and one or both of these lovelies doesnt sound good.
Actually the attractiveness to men of adult vs childlike (peramorphic vs neontonous) features in women during wartime vs peacetime has been tracked and makes interesting reading.
Neoteny is the preservation of childlike characteristics into adulthood. Interestingly adult bird "morphology appears to be equivalent to the juvenile stage of the dinosaurs from which they evolved." Why neotonous features were selected for is unknown although there are plenty of possible reasons. Preservation of juvenile features into adulthood also marks out humans from other great apes.
Theres maybe a gene or suite of genes that might be switched on in birds that cause them to grow into some kind of saurian style adult. That would be awesome! And maybe humans would mature into... fuck knows, Protectors I guess!?
