Law, now, has put into legal writ that no one shall be discriminated against based on sexual orientation, race, age, and creed. All for but one state, (california only in SF and 6 more counties), a form of discrimination that is still held as a taboo social practice in the place of work, education, and more prominently in social functions. What am i talking about? you might be able to guess that it is the discrimination of the homely. Very very interesting expositions on this form of discrimination can be found here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/20/AR2010052002298.html http://www.euronet.nl/users/bc/engels/uglys.htm My question is: do you unconsciously bracket or marginalize your fellow peers that are physically unsightly? I hate that lookcism is perceived to be a social norm and is accepted as apart of our society. I do not think looks are a very good indicator of intelligence or competence. This could be seen by the contrast of the prevalent subjective attractiveness of students in any particular engineering college to say a more formal liberal arts institute. This is a very very broad generalization and should not be taken to offend. Do you think discrimination against the ugly is irrational? and should government step in and eliminate the 'last bastion for discrimination'? and have you ever been a witness to such a discrimination?
