Are men ugly?

Posted in Uncategorized by rfslack on May 19, 2010

A recent statistic cited in the Harper’s Index proves something I’ve always suspected: men are ugly.

According to Harper’s, a recent study asked men to rate the attractiveness of a random sampling of women. The study found that men rate a stastically plausible two out of every five women as “below average” in attractiveness.

And how do men stack up? The numbers aren’t pretty: women rate four out of every five men as below average in looks. It’s like a perversion of Garrison Keillor’s line about Lake Wobegone, “where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.”

Thankfully women are also nowhere near as superficial as men, or else the human race would have died out a long time ago.
