## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am not talking about superstrings, but the idea of supersymmetry itself.

Let me say what annoys me. I will put aside the advantages of it satisfying Coleman-Mandula theorem or solving the instabilities of the Higgs field, lorentz invariance or any other consistency that it satisfies in specific theories. I will just say about the aesthetic part, what makes me feel it is something ugly by iteself.

3 alternative ideas:

1.If you are going to try to unify the idea of bosons and fermions, I would like to see a geometric origin in an object in which different eigenvectors would yield different statistics.

2.I think the idea of super partners quite boring. Why not composite particles sometimes? For example, the super partner of a fermion would be a composite of 2 fermions of the same kind instead of a boson.

3.Why not letting the whole continuum of spin values. Maybe the object in 1. could have special regimes in which spins other than 1 and 1/2 would be allowed.

What about you people, that also don't find beauty in SUSY?
