For Scott Westerfeld

Reading on Scott Westerfeld’s wife’s Justine Larbelestier’s blog that poor Scott has been deemed “not pretty at all” in a journalistic attempt to play on the titles of his YA Uglies series, I feel compelled to remind all of us of the serious nature of beauty evaluation, and how damaging it can be. Allow me to present T-boz, Left Eye and Chilli, far more articulate representatives than I. And Scott, don’t listen. Take deep breaths and do yoga exercises like Left Eye. Or do some karate like Chilli. You’re a looker in my book. 😉

    For posting a TLC video, you just earned a ton of coolness points in my book.

    “The serious nature of beauty evaluation…” I could have used your phrasing when I put together my last [shitty] writing assignment.

    LOL, glad you liked it Anon. And Lucy, I doubt it was that bad of an assignment. 😉

    This is an adorable entry. 😛

    Scott Westerfield may transcend petty labels, but I think Ms. Goodnow misfired a bit. Eek!

    Thanks for posting this. :}
