It’s a sad, materialistic, shallow fact of life that hot and beautiful people get a leg up on the rest of the uglies of the world. Is it fair? Hell naw. Does it systematically and financially and sexually work in the favor of those tall, thin, modelesque hotties that we went to high school and work with? F*ck yas.
If you don’t err on the side of conventional beauty or adhere to the norms of traditional sexiness, then you may have found yourself on the lower end of the totem pole when it comes to societal ease and expectation. I mean, how many times have you heard the saying — “they’re only creepy if they’re not hot” — spew from the mouths of men and women alike?
And sure, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. But it’s a studied fact that “beautiful” people tend to earn more money because employers (wrongly) consider them more able to get the job done. Is it just because pretty people tend to exude more confidence? Or does the employer just want to boink them? The jury’s out on that one.
So while hot people definitely have it easier when hitting on people, speaking up in meetings, or being the strong, silent type instead of the “creepy loner” — it’s definitely safe to say that sh*tty personalities make people uglier than any genetic makeup of human could ever do.
