We (usually men in society) define beauty and acceptable standards and impose them on others, (usually women). From culture to culture and from era to era we have set standards of guilt and shame; from school dress codes, to bound feet, from body sculpting bras to penis sheathes, we defined what shall be seen and what shall be hidden, what is shaved and what can grow, what is a source of power and prominence and what a source of embarrassment and shame. Time now, finally to uncover, rather than cover up from politics to economics, from fashion to convention; it is time.
