The Australian author Robert Hoge, who describes himself as “the ugliest person you’ve never met,” speaks to the biased treatment toward physically unattractive people:

Some kids are good spellers; some have bad haircuts; some are fast runners; some kids are short; some are awesome at netball. But the kids who are short aren’t only short. And the kids who are great at netball aren’t only just great at netball. No one is only just one thing. It’s the same with appearance.
