I heard this happens in Colombiawow
Many people are forced to do plastic surgery to be able to find a job if they are not good looking, regardless their skills.
Well, I know that plastic surgery is well spread in Latin America...
Raise your hands if you know about this and why don't people fight against this?

What exactly is "Beautiful?"confused

For instance, my brother thought his wife was beautiful, and my sister and I thought she was the plainest creature we`d ever seen!... actually not even faintly attractive - looks-wise AND personality!

So... how do these people give instructions to their plastic surgeon on what they are requiring?dunno

Right, it's relative. But, the mainstream has it as to posessing more feminine features (in women's case).

I know about Brazil. One must have a round butt. There are even conquests as for the most beautiful butt, etc. So, that's beautiful to them.

Like what? Bigger boobs? Thicker lips - like Angelina Joli....?

.... or just liposuction to suck up fat? I mean, lots of guys have "feminine" features ...... thin straight nose, almond eyes, .......eyelashes can be false ones, legs are legs, arms are arms ........ there realy is NO criteria for what is "beautiful", is there?

Was Marlyn Monroe ugly to somebody?
Smoky, you don't always need to say: "to me...she's beuatiful".

That "no criteria" idea is to comfort the ugly ones, just like "size doesn't matter"help

If you're not good looking you're unlikely to become the President or Prime Minister of your country.

Every General Election in the last 30 years in the UK has been won by whichever party out of Labour or Conservative have had the better looking Party Leader.

The same thing applies in US Presidential Elections.


I once went for a job interview - for a job in an IT Department - where the candidate before me was an attractive young lady. The candidate after me was a gorgeously attractive blonde.

When I first met the interviewer he expressed surprise that I was male - with a name like mine he expected me to be female - even though I stated I was male on CV.

Anyway I didn't get offered the job.

I don't know if it was because of my looks and gender, or if it was because of the bit in the interview where he asked me how much I would like to earn in this job.
"More than 28000" I told him.
"Oh!" he said looking rather shocked.
"Well, earlier this week I was offered a job for 28000 plus various benefits at..." I told him.
He swallowed and said "I think you should accept that job opportunity."

Anyway, I got my job earning more than him and maybe he got his attractive young assistant that he could try to chat-up at work.


I'm waffling here and going slightly off-topic and there's another little story I could tell you about my interview for the job that I did accept...

Ahhh ... and I take it that Brazil`s businesses are top class when it comes to their actual functioning?

doh .. if the criteria for hiring staff depends on the size and shape of the bum or boobs or lips or nose of the applicant ....... well ....... good luck to them in the modern worldcheers

True, in the countries you've mentioned beauty comes into account but isn't a necessary condition (save obvious professions).

No darl, to me Marilyn Monroe was just average looking - a normal little peroxided blonde who knew how to pose for cameras.

So now that you raise the issue ... what exactly is "ugly"?

If you talking about "size doesnt matter" in the Intl terminology sense - which means you talking about p*nis`s ..... well girl, that all depends on what it is you consider a decent size and what suits you ..... Just like if you needing a book-keeper you a twit if you hire someone who only knows how to work a cash register ...... innit?

This is a most amazingingly intelligent thread and should be brought to the attention of World Leaders who should be brought to bear pressure on this absolutely disgusting form of discrimination in the work places of Brazil, or wherever they do this!

Similarly, I see NO reason. other than re-designing aircraft, why Air Hostesses all have to be below a certain size and weight! ....And why Pole Dancers all have to have tiny waistlines and perky boobs? - what is wrong with larger girls doing this line of work?
