I think a well-maintained male body is a work of art

surprised you think he is muscular. to me he is on the skinny side and needs to but some muscles on, esp on that bird chest.
Really? only a hardcore bodybuilder like Dwayne Johnson can call him "skinny".

Saying that he is on the "skinny side" is like saying Angelina Jolie is chubby. He is a moderately muscular man. His legs are a bit skinny, but that's only because they appear that way in contrast to his body.

I think he is extremely masculine (and handsome), facial wise. Even Justin Bieber (post 2012) is, for me personally. They are both "pretty" or "perfect", but in a masculine way (like what you said). Though Bateman does have a "plastic" look to him, like he puts on makeup, I don't know?

In my book, this guy is the definition of "pretty". I find him very "aesthetic" but not in a sexual way per se:

I beg you different)))
You are not too familiar with art, are you?

Of course both male's and female's forms can be a "thing of beauty," as it was meant to be.

and then, again - they might be not))))

I'm a little rusty on my art history, but I recall that certain periods heavily favored the male form. Classical Greeks or ancient Egyptians (or maybe both?) viewed the female form as utilitarian.

You are probably right - it did ring a bell, so I thought that most likely we are talking about Greece, because their art was always making an impression that they were far more preoccupied with beauty of a male form than of a female's. ( Sorry I never paid much attention to Egyptian art, because it looked rather primitive for my taste. )
So I had to look it up, and here it goes;

"The Greeks thus decided very early on that the human form was the most important subject for artistic endeavour. Seeing their gods as having human form, there was no distinction between the sacred and the secular in artóthe human body was both secular and sacred. A male nude without any attachments such as a bow or a club, could just as easily be Apollo or Heracles as that year's Olympic boxing champion. In the Archaic Period the most important sculptural form was the kouros (plural kouroi), the standing male nude (See for example Biton and Kleobis). The kore (plural korai), or standing clothed female figure, was also common; Greek art did not present female nudity (unless the intention was pornographic) until the 4th century BCE, although the development of techniques to represent drapery is obviously important.
As with pottery, the Greeks did not produce sculpture merely for artistic display. Statues were commissioned either by aristocratic individuals or by the state, and used for public memorials, as offerings to temples, oracles and sanctuaries (as is frequently shown by inscriptions on the statues), or as markers for graves. Statues in the Archaic period were not all intended to represent specific individuals. They were depictions of an idealóbeauty, piety, honor or sacrifice. These were always depictions of young men, ranging in age from adolescence to early maturity, even when placed on the graves of (presumably) elderly citizens. Kouroi were all stylistically similar."

^Yeah, that sounds about right. Other than depicting a few goddesses, female nudes weren't really popular until the Middle Ages.

He looks like a cockatoo with what's going on with his hair.

Yeah, let's perpetuate the notion that women are decorative objects while men are meant to be the real doers in the world.

My gay friend Brad is a lot more attractive than him, blond, muscular and very white. And Brad has no need to be photoshopped! However a lot of guys he knows think he's ugly because he's pale.
