I also found some hair on the pubic region to be attractive, then facial hair kinda grew on me, then I thought, "Wow, a little hair on the body ain't all that bad!" And now I find that to be attractive too.
My friend doesn't like asian males even though she's asian. She doesn't find them attractive (which I think is unfortunate but...)
See? subjective. :/
My tastes change a lot as well. Including food.

I know and I oppose to it for the reasons listed. I suggested an alternative to it because language is a vibrant, changing thing.

Let's not forget it isn't fair to her either. Road to Hell, meet good intentions. Again.
I want to go back to terms I object to: African American. How come I've never heard of the term caucasian american? Aren't we just reinforcing the idea that a ''standard'' american is white? And is the term ''black'' somehow offensive now? Finally, most importantly, we're all of African descent anyway. I prefer to think of the things that unite us, and ''African American'' isn't one of them. Not the way it's used. Technically speaking, if you live in the Americas, you're an African American.
Having said all that, I understand that blacks have their specific history and culture as well. I just think political correctness is distorting reality yet again.
