My wording was incredibly poor, and my apologies for that.
I didn't intend for it to sound like I was saying, "Hey, ugly people! Pop that zit, lose some weight, and just try harder!"
I was trying to say, "Society, and especially Hollywood, discriminates against people based on attractiveness, which makes it much more difficult for a person who isn't considered attractive to succeed. This stereotype impacts women much more than men. Being considered unattractive is a negative mark that society unfairly puts against a person, regardless of their skills."
Ultimately, I think we're all on the same side. I'm a proud feminist. I worded my previous post poorly, though.
