from time to time some good looking person (or, occasionally, an ugly) will state or imply, in words or through their behaviour, this sentiment:
beautiful people are attracted to beautiful people. ugly people are attracted to ugly people.
and i die a little inside. i only figured out why today:
cats are attracted to cats. dogs are attracted to dogs.
when people say the ‘beautiful/ugly people attraction thing’, what i hear is:
ugly people … they’re not really human, are they?
get called “sub-human” often enough and you’d be miserable too.
