Cosmetic Surgery will make peole naturally ugly
« on: July 25, 2007, 04:39:31 AM »
  • Cosmetic surgery overcomes a person's natural ugliness.
  • This means that ugly people will find it easier to mate.
  • This means that the ugly genes will get passed on.
  • As cosmetic surgery becomes more readily available and sociably acceptable this will become more prevalent.
  • The ugly genes will spread through humanity like a plague.

Kill all the ugly people while we still have a chance!!!

Yep. And let the hemophiliacs bleed to death before they breed more hemophiliacs. ::)

Why don't we just go ahead and ban sex worldwide for ten years and let everyone who has AIDS die out?

I don't think I agree with you. If ugly people mate with ugly people, the problem becomes worse. If ugly people receive plastic surgery and mate with good-looking people, the offspring won't be as bad. The cycle would then continue. If anything, instead of the ugly spreading, people will become more average.

You raise an interesting point (divito that is - "agent" is just a befuddled moron).

I think we'll have to run some tests about the dominance of attractive genes and see which are the more the dominant (the U1 gene or the B1 gene - totally not made up). Agent, you have sex with beautiful people and we'll see if your ugliness overcomes their beauty.

Of course, the next inherent issue is the subjectivity of beauty.

Also a good point, I nominate and vote for myself to be judge.

As my opinion is the only one that matters I have been appointed judge.

Sorry, I didn't realize you were making a serious topic. Something about the marquee made it appear otherwise. ;D

Agent, you have sex with beautiful people and we'll see if your ugliness overcomes their beauty.

I've tried, but GRS won't come over to Amerikaland.  :(

On a more serious note could "assisted" reproduction (i.e. IVF) bring about an increase of infertility?

The problem is its own solution. You claim that future generations will be statistically more ugly, but admit that the surgical procedures to rectify this will become more readily available. What does it matter if people are born uglier when this can be more easily remedied?

More importantly, if everybody gets uglier who's going to know? It'll become "normal" - if somebody from 1200AD was here they might think we already were uglier.

You fail at understanding evolution.

IVF and plastic surgery could not possibly create an increase in ugly people, or an increase in infertility.

Let me put it another way;  Does the existence of plastic surgery mean that an ugly person is more likely to breed than a non-ugly person?

Does IVF mean infertile people are more likely to breed than fertile people?

It does make ugly people more likely to breed overall, therefore the mean attractiveness of our species will statistically go down over time.

Studies have shown that "beauty" does not affect breeding rates (at least not negatively) but certain personality types do.

Every ugly betty has a tremendous tom.

Is that a fact?  If that's the case then beast is right (though for the wrong reason).  Can you provide a link to these studies?

Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine
British, Austrailian, and American scientists show the major factors for the number of children a women will have are:

1) Race/Culture/Religion
2) Education
3) When they start their first period
4) Age of menopause


I don't have a direct link, but I'm sure you can find the article on their website: http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/

That's interesting.

You would think physical attractiveness would come into play at some point.

But both genders suffer the same statistical plague of unpleasant looks.

Yes, I believed so - as has been pointed out though, physical appearance has little to do with reproduction (which I'm surprised at).

As for the infertility, it could become possible in the distant future that enough genes that cause infertility (I don't even know if infertility can be genetic by the way) get passed around that it becomes more and more prevalent and common.

In the end these weren't serious theories that I was proposing, merely idle ponderings. While I think bypassing infertility would possibly create more infertile people in the future (than plastic surgery create ugly people that is) it was still just a bit of fun.
