HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Anyone else remember playing the third gen of pokemon games?
So I’ve seen some people here on tumblr rolling their eyes about some of the X and Y evolution methods. For example:

Yeah, because having to turn your DS upside down in order to evolve your pokemon is a thing now. Anyone who rolls their eyes as this doesn’t remember trying to get a fucking Milotic in Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. Yeah. Remember that?

Evolving Feebas into Milotic was one of the most time consuming and soul crushing curve balls the Pokemon games ever threw at the players. I imagine the meeting in which these two Pokemon were first pitched went a lot like this:

Pokemon: Hey, people really like that Gyrados critter! Let’s have another ugly fish evolve into something awesome in gen 3! Check out Feebas and Milotic!
Nintendo: :D Hey! That’s a great idea!
Pokemon: Only instead of Feebas being common, like Magikarp is, we’ll make it really rare!
Nintendo: hehehe, that’s a good one! It’ll drive ‘em nuts! >8D 
Pokemon: No, I mean like REALLY rare. It’ll live in this one area of water where you’ll only have a 1% chance of running into it!
Nintendo: GENIUS! 
Pokemon: And not only that, but you’ll only be able to catch it in one square area of this pond and that area will be different in each game! Players could spend HOURS fishing in the right spot without finding it!
Nintendo: o_o Shit, man… that’s kinda mean….
Pokemon: NO! I’m not done! D8<< See, even if they catch the elusive yet utterly worthless Feebas, they’ll have to play a fashion show mini game because Feebas won’t evolve unless it’s beauty stat is maxed out! Not only will the players have to FIND AND CATCH Feebas, they’ll have to raise it’s self esteem!!
Nintendo: Hm… well I guess that’s a way to get them to play the mini game… 
Pokemon: THAT’S when we throw the next curve ball! >8D See, even if you max out it’s beauty, only a Feebas with one of these five personality types will actually evolve into Milotic!
Nintendo: o___o …. are you Satan? 
Pokemon: I’ve also got some great ideas on how we can force the kids to learn braille. Now all you have to do to evolve the (still rare, but at least reasonably obtainable) Feebas is to trade it with a Prism Scale. You kids these days have it easy, dang-nabbit! Now get off my lawn and turn down your hippity-hop music!

Let’s get this thing straight: All ladies are beautiful. Taeyeon is beautiful, Hyuna is lovely(I don’t really care too much about her, but I’ll admit it), Hyorin is drop dead gorgeous, and D.ana is breathtakingly attractive. There is no such thing as an ugly idol, and remember this thing: If you call an idol ugly, regardless of what group they’re in, you are bullying someone’s child. These ladies are someone’s baby, and they should be praised for their talents and their beauty.
