is physical beauty the measure of a womans worth?
It has a certain worth to it. Just as a man's looks do also. Looks are a factor in life. They have a value. Is it the only thing of worth? No. That is why fat bald rich guys date good looking women because money has a value to women. It gives me hope as I get older. ;)
Women are able to get by without having to work as hard to achieve certain goals if they are attractive.
Men who show a certain physical prowess are able to do the same. Especially if that prowess can translate into a sporting type situation.
Kellie Pickler is about as daft as they come but she can sing and is attractive.
How many of us know of the up and coming baseball or football star who got injured in high school and can't play anymore. And now has a tough time dealing with life. I know of three I have had to work with.
Fortunatly I had enough brains and humor to overcome my lack of appeal. And I can make any daft attractive chick think I am rich. :evil:
Should plastic surgery be allowed into the pagents? If a company makes a better running shoe should someone be allowed to race with it when it gives them an advantage they might not have otherwise? I always thought that equine events in the olympics were a bit wierd because the horse is sentient and is a greater factor in somecases than the rider.
Then I realized it isn't about everyone coming in with a level playing field it is about getting the advantage where ever one can. The rules are designed to try and create a level playing field but don't always succed and everyone tries to find an advantage.
If the plastic surgery was due to injury should she be barred? Why is that different than if it was done for purely cosmetic reasons? What if the surgery was for a minor scar on the lip from a bike accident? What if the surgery is due to a skin condition? What if it was for a cleft pallate as a child? What if the contestant just had rhinoplasty at age 16?
They should make rules as to what level of plastic surgery are acceptable. Just as they should regulate steriods in sporting events.
