IDDG

i have a question. why is valuing someone's looks bad but valuing their mind good?
seriously, i don't see why one is inherently superior. this is something that's drilled into us from childhood, that people should be judged based on their minds and personality and not on looks at all, and if you don't do that you're shallow. isn't someone's body just as much a part of them as their mind? and just as malleable. someone's personality is to an extent affected by how they look, and i suppose vice versa.

and if you were wondering, the subject is something i came across years ago and was intrigued by. it was on an x-files fan site, it was a group of people who would talk about how they were obsessed with gillian anderson. what made it strange was that they were very insistent that it had nothign to do with looks at all, because they were so superior to just thinking of someone physically, and that they liked her because she was IDDG: intellectually drop dead gorgeous.
