Warning. There’s normally a level of smug dismissiveness in articles about men who are single, who don’t want to be (pejoratively called ‘incels’) by the ‘woke’ media (ie most of it), but this piece on the (taxpayer funded) ABC website really takes the cake.
Just to remind you before you read it, we are talking about men who are unable to get dates with women who are resorting to surgery to make themselves look better. That’s it. That’s their crime. They correctly twigged to the fact that the dominant quality in getting a woman is physical appearance and they’re trying to do something about it.
And for this they are labelled ‘incels’ and ‘creeps’ and other horrible things, all because they’re trying to improve their chances of a date by changing how they look (‘how you look’ of course being, (when people are honest) the main way dates are obtained). If you are ugly, you can forget it, as the bitter but accurate song goes.
What the sneering, mainly female, commentators don’t realize, but ironically these men have, is that the real division in our society is not between men and women, but between pretty people and the ugly. According to the pretty people, ugly people should be happy with their lot. That is, happy being permanently single, happy to see other partner up and have children. Happy being the lowest on the social totem pole, the first to be fired, the last to be hired. The people at high school were right! Please just accept their decision!
Just you uglies hurry up and mentally adjust to dying alone.
And can we please please not have any of that crap that if you ‘fix your personality’ you’ll suddenly get more dates. People (both genders) don’t want personality- they want prettiness. This has been proved over and over again in study after study. People who never marry, don’t have kids, are overwhelmingly physically unattractive people. (Maybe the mockers see this as a good thing?) People pour a huge amount into being pretty, they pour zilch into becoming less attractive. Again, people of both genders. They do this because they know this is the only way to have success.
But the hypocrisy will go on. We’ll still make sure all who appear on TV are attractive. Those same people will deny up hill and down dale that they possess anything special -when they do. The rest of us will know the truth.
The real division in our society is between the pretty people, at the top, and the ugly people, at the bottom. The pretty people make far more money, are far advantaged in the job market, and are far more likely to start families. This is a far far bigger divisor than gender. The rest of us, according to the critics, should stop trying to do anything about our ugliness, apparently, because, well, its just wrong to attempt to have some of the same advantages that our pretty overlords were born with.
Well, I have news for them. Anyone with functioning eyesight can see the only way forward for many people is plastic surgery. And for ugly people, of all genders, to be mocked for trying to improve their appearances, when they have no other alternative, is beyond vile.
