I disagree with you.  Men's looks are equally as confidence building as a 
woman's.  But a woman cannot hide her face, while a man can put his penis 
in his pants.

I also disagree with you that what you call "ulgy" is an external 
characteristic.  Frankly, I find "ulgy" to be 90% emotional and 10% physical.

circle and everything outside the circle, then that is an open system
