Anon, pretty people will always have the advantage. At hospitals, when it comes to emergencies, they help the good looking guys first becouse they suppose they have higher chances of surviving. At most jobs, the best positions will be held by pretty people while your ugly ass is stuck in an insipid office.
Acting is saddly no different. I had skill, I had scope and I had charisma. But surprise surprise, I'm ugly as shit and that doesnt sell unless you are going for self-deprecation comedy. Yeah there are some exceptions, but its one in a million. By the time they hire your ugly ass, you are on your 40's and you are a sad sack of bones and bad memories.
This is just a reality we have to live in, Anon. That in spite of all that talk about accepting each other differences, we still massively divide society in ugly and pretty. We are beings of sight, not beings of thought. And unless our race goes blind, it will always be like that.
