Hot vs. Beautiful

March 19, 2014 4 min read

I read this awesome article about the difference between hot and beautiful, and it was a really interesting read (You can read the whole thing at the end of this blog) I usually don’t get either of these terms, I’m eternally cute or pretty. Cute used to annoy me to no end, but I have since accepted it. Still, no matter how backless or low-cut or see-through the shirt is, no matter how mini the skirt, or high the heels, I still just look snuggly. DAMN YOU NOVA SCOTIAN GENETICS! I know, poor me, I get described as cute instead of another complimentary term(shut up, I want the world!). I'm just always going to be animal shaped pancakes. hotvsbeautifulbreakfastattraction The article describes the general loss of respect when it comes to appreciating the female form, with a large shift to describing women more like objects than people. It also talks about the fact that hotness is an illusion, and kind of like Cinderella’s carriage disappears at midnight (once the sweats come on and the makeup comes off). It’s an empowering piece that promotes being our beautiful selves rather than the man-made standard of sexy. hotvsbeautifulbeauty-is-being-the-best-possible-version-of-yourself-on-the-inside-and-out-beauty-quote
“Because beauty isn’t abount wanting to f*ck her; it’s about wanting to be with her” (DAMN STRAIGHT)  
After the initial write up, it has a long list of phrases that emphasize the hot vs beautiful argument. Here are my personal favourites from the list:

Hot is her curves; beauty is her nerves.

Hot is a text message; beautiful is a love letter.

Hot is smokey-eyed; beautiful is bare-faced.

Hot is the way she moans; beautiful is the way she speaks.

The Actual Difference Between Women Who Are Hot And Who Are Beautiful

Women. We’re curvy, skinny, hood, pretty, cute, ethnic, bad, dime pieces, unicorns, babes, pieces of tail, juicy, fine, sexy, foxes, sultry, voluptuous… The list goes on. When was the last time you heard a man describe a woman with an adjective that isn’t dripping in sexual innuendos and defaming premises? When was the last time you heard a man describe a woman by something that compliments her soul and her inherent elegance? When was the last time you heard a man describe a woman as beautiful? There’s been a loss of respect when it comes to admiring women, shifting towards describing us as objects, rather than people. Men look at women as pieces of tail, “things” to be conquered, rather than appreciating women for their individuality. A large portion of today’s men are momentarily allured by hair extensions, large chests, big bottoms and stilettos. They think sexuality comes in the form of bronzed skin, bikini waxes and fake eyelashes. They’ve been programmed to believe that any woman with a sculpted body and perky breasts is attractive. What about the women who don’t want to indulge in the male fantasy? What about the women who just want to wear comfortable sweaters and flats? What about the women who don’t dress to impress the opposite sex, but instead, to just feel good in their own skin? Isn’t there attractiveness in that? Isn’t there an appeal to that sense of confidence? When did women become forced to acquiesce to this standard, or otherwise get lost in the crowd? When did getting a man mean painting on layers of makeup and investing in mini skirts? There is a certain type of man that continually defames women, judging them solely on sex appeal, failing to see the actual grandeur of women. These are the men who don’t understand the concept of natural beauty and uniqueness in flaws. They don’t recognize that “hotness” doesn’t last past midnight, when the makeup has smudged onto the pillow and the hair extensions have been taken out. It doesn’t last when the spray tans have washed away and the tight dresses have come off. It’s not real; it’s an illusion that’s been forcing women to conform to unhealthy habits for too many years. It’s time these men are reminded of the difference between hot and beautiful. It’s time men realize that women have more to offer than just a body. Women are stunning creatures, with assets and traits both unique and enchanting to each one of us, and it’s time we started showcasing our individuality and stop giving in to the illusion of sexy created by man. Because beauty isn’t about wanting to f*ck her; it’s about wanting to be with her. Hot is admired from afar; beauty is to be held. Hot is perception; beauty is appreciation. Hot is smokey-eyed; beautiful is bare-faced. Hot is an appearance; beautiful is more than skin deep. Hot is the way she moans; beautiful is the way she speaks. Hot is a strong appeal; beautiful is strong mind. Hot is youthful; beautiful is ageless. Hot is conventional; beauty is unique. Hot is a one-night stand; beautiful is sleepless nights. Hot is a state of being; beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Hot is devious; beautiful is innocent. Hot is bending her over; beautiful is baking her blueberry pancakes. Hot is sultry; beautiful is wholesome. Hot is her curves; beauty is her nerves. Hot is a text message; beautiful is a love letter. Hot is a facade; beautiful is a woman.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
