bbc news article about disfigured woman and how the 'beautiful' people on tv are all fake, including news presenters(lol).
"Even "normal" is no longer normal, and it's time the pretence that these people's looks are totally natural and fairly easily attainable was put to a stop."
yeah, but I switch on the tv and everyone looks entirely normal, edging towards plain. They choose people who when filmed will look similar to the viewers.
"I don't know why we are so obsessed with beauty. Big Brother is a joke, but is in fact one of the only programmes to feature disabled people. Why are there no disabled/disfigured people in soaps? Why are there no disabled/disfigured people on X Factor? If the faces of the media were not so selected, then they wouldn't be considered freaks - they would be normal people, which is what they are."
No, they're not, they are unfortunately suffering from a genetic fault, but they are a low percentage of the population and we shouldn't :
stick them in everyone's faces all day or laud them as some sort of ideal, it could only be a bad thing for breeding and genetics.
Sorry to those with relatives suffering from disabilty, but it really is not 'normal' and it would be going against nature to pretend it was.
and finally this guy:
Like it or not we are genetically predisposed for reproduction purposes to be attracted to symmetrical faces. We can refrain from staring and pointing however without too much effort however.
