How I View Beauty And Ugly Discrimination
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

First, I must add a disclaimer. This article is in no way intended to mock, denigrate or disparage anyone for his or her looks. It is, or should be clearly understood that none of us are responsible for the looks we were endowed with… If everything in life remained the same, I would be impressed with a person’s physical beauty. I have evolved into a being wherein I view a so-called beautiful person no differently from the so-called unattractive or ugly person. To do otherwise, is to make a mockery of our creator, because everything he made is good and I have no right to judge any of his creations.

My favorite phrase or comment is, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. I am not concerned about women in other countries who cover their bodies, because at least in those countries the so-called pretty ones as well as the so-called ugly ones cover their bodies.

I think beauty contests are the height of hypocrisy. In having such events, we are actually disrespecting many in our society. What message are the so-called ugly folks receiving? Yes, I did say ugly folks, because if you have something that is pretty, the opposite has to be ugly. Since we are bold enough to identify the pretty folks, where is the contest for the ugly folks? Talk about self-esteem, how does a beauty contest lift the spirits of the ugly folks? Understanding life as we do, it must emotionally knock them down a peg or two. Of course, they would never admit it, because they would be labeled as being jealous or envious.

We often hear the word discrimination being discussed, yet, on a daily bases, we enter into that territory. We often hear of race, age, gender and other types of discrimination, where is the one for ugliness. For example, create a picture in your mind with two people in it, one ugly and one pretty. A job opening is available and both apply. While both prepares for the interview, they will make every effort to look their very best…Don’t jump the gun on me and let the cat out of the bag by identifying who will be hired. Just wait until I say it…If the interviewer is male, the pretty one will be hired. If the interviewer is female (especially a so-called hot one) the ugly one will be hired.

The female interviewer will hire the ugly one because she will not deflect any attention from her. The male will hire the pretty one because somewhere within the deepest part of his brain, he imagines wooing her. Even if the person is married and does not intend to cheat on his wife, his ego will jump to the peacock syndrome.

This type of discrimination is the one with the easiest remedy. Never do a face-to-face interview. Usually, the final stage for employment is the interview. Which means, the person has met all the necessary prerequisites for being hired. Even if a person is physically challenged, if they meet all the physical aspects of the job, it should not be an issue.

All interviews should be conducted thusly; some type of barrier should be placed between the interviewer and the interviewee. Using this method will eliminate any bias based on looks or any other factors. An interview of this nature will be based on knowledge rather than cleavage.

Ed, Too true! I've heard executive recruiters put it differently! Saying the same thing about the overall ability of the hiring individual. As in top people hire top people but mediocre people hire mediocre people. blessings, Cynthia
