Aesthetics

Aesthetics is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of beauty, art, and taste, with the creation and appreciation of beauty.
* Wikipedia

If you have a teenager or young adult who is obsessed with their looks chances are they have used this word to describe their end goal.  Aesthetics is a common word among young adults these days with many striving to be aesthetically appealing in a world where beauty and sexiness are deemed to be "the be all and end all of existence".

And it doesn't just affect girls.  Guys are getting really big on the aesthetics movement, feeling that their slim non-muscular physiques are just NOT good enough (see pic). Feeling the need to be ripped to get the hot girls, they have sayings like "No pecs no sex."

Have you heard of Naso and his Facebook page for example?  His page is called Nasthetics.  Chances are your teen or young adult has heard of him.

Or perhaps you've heard of Zyzz?  He's a young man who was all about aesthetics and sadly he passed away at a young age.  Nonetheless he is still a hero for many young men wanting to achieve a ripped body like his.
 
Is there a teen or young adult in your life striving to achieve aesthetics.  How do you feel about this growing trend?
