The idea of beauty should not be defined at all because of how abstract the concept is and also how it can be perceived. Each individual should be able to have their own definition of beauty. They should not be influenced by dominant stereotypes. Beauty should be what you think and not what someone else thinks. As in the words of Confucius. Everything has beauty. But not everyone sees it.
