It's important to note that each artist has their own opinion on what is beautiful and what is beastly.
Most opinions are apparently that Beauty and Beast are corporeal, and are furthermore a woman/girl and a monster/behemoth respectively. Forgive Captain-Carrion if he is weary of that delightfully original opinion. He probably isn't alone.
Someone a while back said "What is beauty, what is a beast? Does the beast have to be an animal or creature of some nature? Does the beauty have to be female? Can the roles be reversed?"
I can't remember who it was though, and their unpopular, narrow-minded opinion probably won't effect the outcome of the contest anyways. Furthermore, most of you have answered that guy's questions quite well. The answer is "No" on all accounts.
