About This Quiz

Society, culture, media, a mean aunt, the school bullies - call it whatever you like, but you know there is a force out there that wants us all to conform to a very narrow and actually physically impossible version of beauty: plastic skin with no blemishes or even pores; dimensions that you can only get through surgery or spending literally all day on it; hair that is never out of place and shines with health even though it has been dyed and styled half to death on a daily basis; eyes that are cartoonishly large; teeth that are no color ever to be found in nature, and so on.

To that force, this quiz says: bog off, and stay gone! We know that there are many kinds of beauty. There are larger and smaller bodies, rounder and squarer bodies, stronger and frailer bodies. There are bodies that can punch holes in walls and bodies that most of us could carry without breaking a sweat. There is hair that is gloriously curly and uncontrollable, and hair that is naturally stick-straight. There are eyes in all shapes, colors, and sizes. All of these things are naturally beautiful. With which of them are you blessed? Let's find out!
