Women, doesn't it bother you that "attractive" women dominate the airways


I believe intelligence and talent is "attractive neutral." I believe that attractive women can be talented, average women can be talented and unattractive women can be talented. So, I ask the women in the world who are not considered attractive, doesn't it bother you that attractive women outnumber average looking and unattractive women on the airways? I ask women, because although this happens with men too, it is a disproportionately greater happenstance with women. I know a number of women who would not be considered "model" material who would make great media stars.

    Thank you! I'm a man, but I have a wife & 2 daughters. I think they are beautiful, but - what happened to judging women by their smarts & talents? And looks are not a talent, they are genetics. I'm surprised more women don't think like you.

    I'm not judging what is attractive. What bothers me is that our society talks the game that it is what counts on the inside that matters, but does not walk the talk [boxing expression]. No one should be penalized by nature & birth.

    Thanks for your comment. I remember that Twilight Zone episode as well. It was a story with a moral ahead of its time.

    I agree with your observation; I have seen it myself. It seems to me however, that on average, it seems being attractive is a necessary qualification for many women.

    I agree with your first sentence. But I believe women are more often held to a higher physical standard than men when it comes to employment on the airways.

    It's not that I don't agree with you. I do to a certain extent. As a mother I would hope for the same. But I see things how they are and there is nothing wrong with some people using what they have to succeed. It's all supply and demand.

    I totally believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'm not getting the responses I thought, so I might withdraw the Q. My intent was to pt out the superficiality media think we want & to pt out talented women not hired if failing a profile.

    You misunderstand my question. Maybe my fault. My pt. is that beauty, whether air- brushed or real is what media displays. Just as male muscles encourages steroids, female pinups encourages boob jobs & starving. Not a great lesson for our childre
