We live in a material world and that isn’t an overstatement. Since ancient times beauty has been revered and persons who were deemed to be beautiful in various cultures were admired and rewarded for their physical traits. Despite the fact that different cultures hold their various standards of beauty, their reaction to beautiful people is the same. In today’s society, beautiful people are more likely to get favored than their plain counterparts for a job done. Don’t get me wrong beautiful people work as hard as everyone else, but their pleasant appearance gives them an edge over everyone else.
Now, don’t take this as a rant from a plain woman.

The trend of beauty-worship spans all facets of our society, it isn’t confined only to the entertainment world (Hollywood). For instance, you may have noticed that cute students are as famous in high school as scholastic students. Also, people are more likely to choose a romantic partner based on their looks before considering other qualities. In fact, the widespread use of makeup and beauty enhancing products is a proof of this craze.
Persons like Jeremy Meeks (aka Hot Felon), the Kardashians and 30% of celebrities are famous for their looks. Besides, President Trump of the United States of America has repeatedly praised his daughter Ivanka Trump for her beauty – imagine even a father admires his own daughter for her looks.
At the end of the day, are we not all guilty of this vain behavior? Haven’t we caused pain to people just because they weren’t ‘eye candy‘? Perhaps the world isn’t a fair place.
