Good Looks Not Important… “REALLY?”

BeautifulPeople.com reveals the ugly truth of political correctness

Anderson Cooper: “Scary”

Barbara Walters: “It’s discriminatory and painful”

Joy Behar: “It has a scent of eugenics that we saw in Nazi Germany”

New York, 25th October 2011 /PRNewswire/ — BeautifulPeople.com, the dating community exclusively for good-looking people, has launched “REALLY?” a 90 second movie in response to a sustained assault on the site’s concept.

Since BeautifulPeople.com launched in 2002, the dating site which is founded on the principle that everyone wants to be with someone they are attracted to, has come under fire for being prejudiced, unfair, and even for misunderstanding human nature. In the words of renowned social psychologist Dr Cliff Arnall, former lecturer and researcher at Cardiff University, it has been “lambasted for telling the truth.”

Managing director Greg Hodge said: “We receive hundreds of emails each week from people who are furious with BeautifulPeople.com and we have experienced a continued media backlash.  In my opinion, political correctness has gone too far. Take Anderson Cooper for example, while relaxing in a bar after finishing a hard day chasing hurricanes I am quite sure he does not notice a potential mate across the room and say hmmmm…look at that person’s beautiful soul!

“Watch “REALLY?””, Hodge continued, “and you’ll agree that our critics are fooling themselves. They can’t argue with millions of years of evolution. Everyone naturally wants to be with someone they are attracted to. This is the concept on which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”

The movie shows a politically correct world gone too far, where physical attraction is not important and beauty shines solely from within. A world where women shun the beautiful and fawn over the ugly guy because he must have feelings, intelligence and sensitivity. In their eyes, he must be perfect, because he is ugly. “REALLY?”

Actors and featured extras on the set of “REALLY?” – agreed that the film they were shooting had no basis in reality. Michael J Sielaff, who plays the “ugly guy” said:

“I’m the last person to be cast as the next Hollywood sex symbol and that’s fine by me – I’m comfortable in my own skin, playing this role was a hoot. Unfortunately reality doesn’t work like the promo shows – you can’t ignore the physical side of beauty. And likewise, I’d never assume a woman has an ugly soul because she has a face like Kim Kardashian. Who would? Unless you’re actually talking about Kim Kardashian”

Heather Seychelle, a BeautifulPeople.com member who was cast as an extra in the movie said: “I asked to be cast in the film when I heard it was being made. I am proud to be a member of BeautifulPeople.com, I strongly object to reverse lookism; so many of my attractive friends have encountered it and struggle to be taken seriously”.

BeautifulPeople.com is the largest community of attractive people in the world. Since its conception in 2002, the site has launched in 190 countries with over 700,000 members worldwide. Over 5.5 million people have been rejected from the site over the same period.
Currently, an average of one in eight applicants is accepted. The majority of successful new members come from the USA, Canada and France. The countries with the highest rate of rejections are the UK, Russia and Poland with the UK and Poland having the least attractive male applicants in the world.

‘Beauty’ versus the untruthful world of the politically correct, by Dr Cliff Arnall:

Why are very good looking people vilified for being democratically elected onto a dating website? What are these people meant to do? Scar themselves or hide away to make other less attractive people feel less ugly? Political correctness has repressed the truth to the point that telling the truth has become a social crime.

The truth is some people are born more beautiful. Assuming they are devoid of an intelligent thought is petty, and simply incorrect. And as for a democratic internet service that is totally grounded in highly respected research and based on psychological and biological truths I say good for them.
