Social networking website ~BeautifulPeople.com~ (which I didn’t know existed) has banned 5000 members of their website for “letting themselves go” and gaining weight over the holiday season.

There is so much wrong with this, I’m not even sure where to begin. First of all, the fact that the site even exists is discriminatory. It claims “no more filtering through unattractive people on mainstream sites.” It requires all members to approved by a voting panel of the opposite sex. They say “BeautifulPeople does not define beauty it simply gives an accurate representation of what society’s ideal of beauty is.” So, the point is to affirm and enforce society’s ideals?

Today, they actually released a press release that claims that “5000 festive fatties” were banned from their service for gaining weight over the holidays. Apparently, the action came from vigilant members of the site taking action and calling them to be removed. Hey, this isn’t the first time that a majority has taken away rights from a minority, is it? The managing director of the website even was quoted saying “We responded to complaints by moving the newly chubby members back to the rating stage. This is the same as having them re-apply.”

The founder of the company says “Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded”.


It's probably a scam, but still, clearly putting the right message into people's heads.

Oh wow, that's it, society truly is retarded. I've lost all faith in you and it will take a maricle to regain it.
Probably the most closed minded website you could go to. All the people there are stuck up and concided and their image of beauty is seriously warped.

If beauty is all they have, then they must be pretty shallow. Easier to tear down.

What did anyone expect from that website? We all know what it's about, as messed up as it may be. I'm not surprised, it's just a shame that such a thing even exists. Oh well, I'm sure a lot of the people involved with that site will one day work out what real beauty is anyway.

But I guess people are so desperate to find pretty people that
they fave to create a website on beautiful people

What about beauty on the inside? apparently that doesn't matter anymore..


There is a website for ugly people, it's called MySpace
