Stoic Aesthetics?

An idea from Peter Limberg

What are stoic aesthetics?

1. Don’t be a non-man

The bad bias—

In todays world, the criticism of calling someone a bitch is that you’re saying that they’re a (weak) woman.

So to say, “Don’t be a bitch!” essentially means:

Don’t be a woman.

Inherent in this then means,

Women are inherently bad, weak, mean (base… basic, not “cruel”), irrational, lesser.

However we men… *should* we be comparing ourselves to women as some sort of lower tier benchmark? No.

2. I’m more proud of what I didn’t do, or didn’t say, or didn’t partake in?

A stoic aesthetic — we are more proud of *NOT* partaking in pettiness or smallness?

The corollary:

Be magnanimous!
