" The idea of beauty and what qualifies a woman(in this case) is determined by the culture of the society to which she belongs. Traits that may seem unappealing to one group may just be irresistable to another. The women of this Ethiopian tribe, with their elongated lower 'clay disc filled' lips may appear horrific , troubling and even ugly to some, but to their tribes, there is absolutely nothing wrong with them.

its their way. Beauty has on one universal standard. The sooner this is accepted, the sooner many people in the world, i believe, will learn to be comfortable in their own skin....and find their tribe."
