It’s hard to tell how accurate this is since the number of people he asked is very limited and the race of those people haven’t been mentioned.
It’s very important to consider the race/ethnicity of those who are being asked since those elements are basic of how we rate races. People are instinctively ethnocentric and judge others based on their own standards.
Asian, white and black women are built differently, and that is a fact. Asian women have less testosterone and their facial features are more childlike, their height is lower and their muscle mass index is lower too. White women, on the other hand, tend to have thinner lips, narrower noses, wider hips and pelvis, fuller breasts, smaller buttocks, and stand on average at a higher height than Asian women. Black women usually have longer limbs, narrower hips, fuller buttocks and smaller chests. All of this information is the result of actual scientific research and is objective, what varies it’s how people of different races see beauty.
As white women have smaller butts and wider hips white men tend to favor a lower frontal WHR (0.7) and place less importance on the size of the buttocks. Black men prefer, on average, a frontal WHR of 0.8 and give more importance to butt and thighs size than to actual hips.
All that means that beauty is subjective, but only to a certain point, because there are clear standards in every culture and things like facial symmetry and more feminine proportions have been rated higher regardless of the group, it just that one group prefers, for example, a higher WHR, while the other prefers it to be lower, but still, more noticeable hips and butt, and softer features than men.
This research had some mistakes, but the reason why it was so frowned upon it’s because it was very offensive to an entire race. Even if it was accurate, the results of its publication would have been the same, because it’s hard for people to understand that races aren’t equal and that on average, all of them have advantages and disadvantages one over another. I’ve seen similar reactions of people to articles where scientific research proved that blacks on average are better athletes because of their built and that East Asians have, on average, higher IQs.
