Hope that authors life work isn't all the one sided tripe he is pushing. I'm confident I'm not the only one who may avoid or dislike some people solely on their cosmetic appearance. Attractive people have often proven to be rude, pushy, conceited, one dimensional, lacking in moral content and all sorts of other negative descriptions. I've met many lookers who never had to develop a personality because they skated by on what mother nature gave them. All too often they are the biggest dooshbags in the workplace, men and women alike, and I avoid their type accordingly.

I've dated some really good looking women. Most of them are so-so and are dead in the sack. Give me a Plain Jayne or a chunky-chubby girl any day. They tend to be good fun, are down to earth, and are much more in touch with their sexuality. Of course, this is a generalization. But overall most hotties really aren't worth the time of day. Models & actresses are usually deeply troubled head cases. No thanks.

Yes, but are beautiful women paid more than ugly men?
