Dating Website For Very Attractive Persons Expels Christmas-Induced Fatties

The dating website BeautifulPeople.com, which bills itself as the “sexiest website in the world today,” removed more than 5,000 members from its roster, because ”vigilant members” were upset over people uploading photos of them celebrating over the holidays, only to reveal they “let themselves go.” So the site did what was only reasonable: They yanked the newly chubby and put them back on the “rating” phase of the application process, where existing members must vote you beautiful enough to join them. While the website doesn’t specifically ban gay users, members only vote on profiles of the opposite sex, which means that in order to join, gay men are charged with telling straight women they’re fugly.

    Hi-larious. The website actually says at the bottom, “Too ugly to sign up? Browse Beautifulpeople as a guest.”

    When you get too big, off you go! It reminds me of that Twilight Zone where they execute ugly people who can’t be “fixed” with repeated plastic surgery, or Logan’s Run where they blow up people when they turn 30.

    In the gay world, this is just typical Friday night behavior at the watering hole.

    Why in the world can’t people of the same sex rate each other? Damn heterosexism.

    No. 6 · Republican: Are they hetrophobic? : P

    Besides the obvious heterosexism, I’m guessing there might be other prejudice involved. It’d be interesting to know how many blacks and asians are on that site. It’s relatively rare for a pic rating site (and that’s basically what the application part of the site is) to have many blacks or asians in its hotties section.

    #6 because since most of the members are hetero, other beautiful people would probably try to vote out their competition for the opposite sex. makes perfect sense.

    Congrats on defending discrimination.
