WHY ASIANS ARE 'CUTER' (SCIENTIFIC BREAKDOWN)
So, here’s a statement: ‘Asians are cuter’.
If you were offended by that, this video is probably not what you think. Everyone has their own opinions of what constitutes as attractive.
But I’m not necessarily talking about ‘attractiveness’ here; I’m talking about ‘cuteness’. Cuteness is a term describing a type of attractiveness commonly associated with youth and appearance. It’s also a scientific concept. So when I say ‘Asians are cuter’, well, they arguably are; and that’s including males, not just females.
Now, compared to adults, common features for infants across all ethnic groups include larger heads, flatter faces, reduction of the brow ridge, hairlessness, thinner bones, reduced muscle mass, smaller physical size, shorter arms, shorter legs, just to name a few - and of course this is largely why people find babies cute. If they didn’t have these features and proportions, they’d more so resemble miniature adults and that’s kind of creepy.
The video covers:
- Neoteny in East Asians
- How retention of neotenous, childlike traits relate to ethnicity
- Neoteny in humans in general
- Sexual attraction to neotenous traits
- Asian fever vs Cuteness fever
- Neotenous features vs Non-neotenous features
- Gene Mutations that gave East Asians their distinctive appearance
- Neoteny's role in sexual selection
- Are small and slanted stereotypical 'Asian Eyes' neotenous?
- Japan's kawaii culture (South Korea & China as well)
- Psychological neoteny
- Logan Paul's immature antics
- & more!
