Beauty or intelligence?

leave a comment »

Writing prompt: Would you rather be super intelligent or extremely good looking? What if you could be both, but not at the same time?

It’s kind of sad that this question is still asked.

Why can’t you be both beautiful and intelligent? If you don’t look like a super model, so what? What’s beauty anyway? Finding a style that fits your personality and makes you feel good, that’s what matters in my opinion. There are people who are super interesting and engaging with tons of personality, and you don’t really think about how they look like.

Would you hire a person for the good looks alone? If you are not Berlusconi, Prime Minister of Italy, that is? Today, Italian women took to the streets to protest over the sex scandal he was involved in. Reuters wrote: “Campaigners say the increasingly one-sided image of women as sex objects has promoted a culture in which women see selling their good looks as the only route to success in a country where a third of young people are unemployed.”

That’s all I have to say about this issue.
