It's a terrible curse. But we all have our crosses to bear, so I've learned to accept mine. Science journalism tells us the ugly truth about beauty: there's such a thing as too much. James Hamblin writes in The Atlantic:
Yet life for the beautiful is not as perfect as it seems. In one study of job applicants, beautiful women who included a photo with their résumé were 41 percent less likely to land an interview than “plain” women who did the same . When accused of homicide, beautiful women are more likely to be presumed guilty . And attractive people are also more likely to be associated with a number of negative traits, such as conformity and self-promotion .
