I do not want to hear about how ugly you think a billionaire is.
I hate billionaires too, but I’m never going to wanna hear that someone we both hate is ugly. Never.

The ‘beauty is good, ugly is bad’ thing is always always absolutely terrible.

It feeds the idea that our self-worth is connected to what we look like and no amount of ‘body positivity’ is worth shit if we continue to pull this crap just because we wanna joke about someone we hate.

Follow

& Same goes for ‘small penis vs. big dick energy’ and every other joke we make that connects our quality as people to our bodies.

You want to permanently free people from the pressure to look a certain way?
Stop assigning value to beauty full stop. Stop calling people you hate ugly. Stop making jokes about the bodies of people you dislike.

Relatedly: How Zuckerberg "looks like an android", which often seems to be coded as anti-autism. Zuckerberg is a POS but his ability to relay facial expression really has nothing to do with it.

@queeranarchism Plus, I feel like if all you can do is attack their appearance then you're not really trying to interrogate their ideas and why they're so bad/harmful, or tell others about it.

And that way there's scope to also attack billionaires who do meet conventional standards of beauty.
