Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
I don't know if that's true. There are some true freaks out there who wouldn't be beautiful without surgical help. (Cliff Yablonski Hates You is one of the best uglies compendiums, and--unlike People of Walmart-- it's free of malware:)http://www.somethingawful.com/cliff-yablonski/
Meh. Small enough number to be a statistical anomaly. Show me a dozen randomly chosen ugly people and the way to bet is that every one of them fall into Cappy's observation.
I get what you say Aaron but there are ugly people out there and it ain't due to laziness. I would call it 10 to 20 percent of the population.Deformity, injuries, genetic issues, you name it. Have at least some sympathy for those. And note, I only say this because you did say there are no such thing as 'ugly people, only lazy people'.
Even above and beyond that, so much of how we perceive people is based on how we feel about them rather than their actual physical beauty, that to be a harpy feminist shrew is going to turn an 8 into a 5 pretty quick. For instance, I grew up being partially raised by a woman that was not pretty, even in the most strained sense of the word. She was just flat out ugly, but because she was the sweetest woman I think I’ve ever known in my life, I always viewed her poor looks as being sort of quirky and cute – something that was a signature part of Marge, and because she was so nice, and I loved her so much, I was not particularly focused on her looks as a result, and still am not. Take Marge’s face and put it on a bitter old harpy shrew feminist, and she’d be the most repulsive person on Earth. Do a Google search on Shona Sibrary. She’s butt-ugly, but if she had a personality like Marge, I’d see her looks as being quirky and unique, not ugly. But she’s Shona Sibrary, and so she is the most repulsive creature imaginable. She sort of reminds me of Sloth, from the Goonies. Tell me that you can unsee it now that I said it.
First define "ugly".If by physically hideous, misshapen and unattractive then there ARE people who truly can be called ugly.All the dieting, exercise andeven plastic surgery availablewill simply not improve theirappearance. I had a secretary once who wouldmake you think Herman Munster andLurch had a love child and she was it. She was one of the nicest, pleasantest and funniest people I know but god knows she had to sneak up on a glass of water to get a drink.
