Always amazed that anyone doesn't know that we live in a society that makes being too beautiful dangerous.

The key social takeaway for women from our current institutions is to be attractive -- pleasing, because women are told to please -- but not too attractive, which is powerful and thus threatening and attracts chaos.
Female beauty has to be understood in the context of institutional male opposition to female power. There are many kinds of power - financial, social, etc. Beauty is also a kind of power. And like all power in the hands of (straight) women, it alarms (straight) men.
ie: Do you know why your guy is sometimes a d*ck to you? Because those are the moments he realizes you have power over him and female power scares men. So he lashes out.
Also please remember that besides determining the course of your relationships, getting the balance exactly right is also crucial to your economic survival. Fun to be a lady!
