Well, this is a TOPIC! Now, this is how it works. Men for the most part, and women to a degree are very visual when it comes to something that's considered or deemed appealing to the eye. No different then when you are about to eat something, it better look good or worth eating before you decide to taste or stuff your face with it. Being attractive and naturally so can get you places in this world, but at the same time being in a certain spot to catch a certain eye is important as well. Not everyone can be a "star." But what drives me CRAZY is when people think of an attractive guy or what it means to be attractive they for the most part visualize a WHITE PERSON!
People, White men are not the ONLY source of "beauty" as what media portrays and what so many believe. I did a topic in the past about the need for colored men to feel validated by being with a white person and that rose all types of hell, in a span of 6 days and 6,000 views and a few hundred replies. But yes looks matter, and when you see how people are exploited for them it tells you just who is the one or ones that are in charge of dictating that they should matter SO much. In closing I bet any and all who read my response would say or think "Why does he not have a picture, or a "decent" profile?!" My answer, before you reach yours is, I'm only here on Real Jock, for one person these days. I need NO approval or validation from ANYONE except him. As he is blessed to see me on camera and in person, I could care less of what ANY would think otherwise.
My 2 Cents. ;-p
