HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now add Black to it, 

And think about how white people are the ones in the hiring positions, 

And white people never look at us or interact with us for longer than they absolutely HAVE to, 

So most of us are automatically marked ‘unattractive’ simply because we’re Black, 

Aaaaaand you end up with a Black unemployment rate that’s over DOUBLE that of the rest of the country, 

EVEN DURING TIMES OF ECONOMIC PROSPERITY.

I was immediately thinking about how this impacts Black and Native (and Mexican, as well) people as I was going down through this and then I get through it and BAM, Tashabilities gets it in there.

In the Q!

but what does conventionally attractive even mean, does it just mean tall, white, cishet, male (because when women are beautiful or sexually appealing they are told they can’t be smart), and not fat, what even is this conventional beauty that we’re talking about, how were these studies done and off of what basis were they considering beauty?

I think our society knows what is supposed to be considered “attractive”, even if not everyone is actually attracted to that. That’s why everyone looks like a slightly different variation of the same three women and the same three men in most magazines.

American badger - July Morning, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
After a fruitless night of hunting, a badger has discovered a fresh target: the burrow entrance of a Wyoming ground squirrel. Badgers will dig furiously to excavate underground prey and their own dens. They can quickly tunnel themselves out of sight  using powerful forelimbs and long claws. When attacked themselves—cougars and eagles will try —badgers fight back with ferocity.
This beautiful diorama is located in the Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals.
