Are you hideously ugly but hope you can imbue your future half-ugly child with a crippling, baseless sense of superiority and entitlement as well?
You’re in luck. The oft-maligned site “Beautiful People,” which I’m still pretty sure is some kind of horrid social experiment, has gotten their media-whoring name in the press again, this time with a newswire release about a new fertility service that unlike the dating part of the site is open to ugly people, too. You might remember this site for their last foray into the press after Christmas, when they sent out a press release about kicking all the fatties off their site. Back then, their repugnant if real spokesdouche Greg Hodge said:
”We responded to complaints by moving the newly chubby members back to the rating stage. This is the same as having them re-apply.
”Their re-applications were reviewed by existing members and only a few hundred were voted back in. Over 5,000 were rejected.”
Robert Hintze, a founder, added:
”As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld.
”Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”
Were anyone seriously trying to sell a looks-based model, I am disinclined to believe they’d be so blunt in their phrasing. (A quick browse of members reveals that the site’s members are of average attractiveness, if that, another thing leading me to believe the site is not on the up and up.) But the most recent press troll release from the folk behind BeautifulPeople.com is concerned with making more “beautiful people.”
“Initially, we hesitated to widen the offering to non-beautiful people. But everyone – including ugly people – would like to bring good looking children in to the world, and we can’t be selfish with our attractive gene pool.”
You can read the entire, skin-crawl inducing press release here. The site claims the initiative is a response to requests from fertility clinics for the genetic material of members, which also sounds far-fetched. Are you buying any of this?
