It's kind of like the stereotype of the 'nerdy man'. His head is off in lala land and he lives in a world beyond his appearance. He dresses in plaid pants and a checked shirt and wears out of date eyeglasses. He's too busy with everything going on inside his head to worry about his external appearance.

Same with some women.

I wondered if I should tag that last line as obvious sarcasm. So I did just now. Sometimes it isn't so obvious, even when we think it is. lol.

Thats the real beauty here...stereotypes play to what people perceive to be an average trait within any given population. With attractiveness being a perception, it goes without saying that "the average female scientist will only look average".

Ah, the old "outliers prove the rule" argument that's so popular on here! First off, to the original poster, you've established no criteria to judge attractiveness, making your assessments hardly scientific. Kinda ironic that you would suggest there are no beautiful women scientists based on a non-scientific evaluation. Still, I agree with you. Here's why. Women generally aren't raised to pursue math and science. What you might call "appealing" or "attractive" women don't need to go through the effort of learning stuff either. Men will buy them whatever they want. Between those two things I bet you'd find less likelihood of any woman working in any realm of science. Additionally, I'd have to assume that the ratio of attractive women is similar to that of attractive men. So, yes, not very many attractive women in the math or science fields. How that matters at all is a mystery though. Would you like to establish affirmative action for attractive women?

Wow. Maybe your inability to find beauty in all people has blinded you. Marilyn Monroe was no skinny minnie.

I was one of the few who never cared what size Marilyn was, I was more interested in her theories regarding Parallel Universes, and her unwavering belief that Pluto shouldn't really be classed as a planet.

Wow Marylyn was not just a bimbo actress after all

It has nothing to do with exceptions, the OP made definitive claims and also assumptions that state "Brains and Beauty don't mix", "no good-looking girls are interested in science" "why can't women in science be attractive". He never once stated "In general".

A single example of what most would consider attractive is all that is needed to defeat the claim that "beauty and brains don't mix"

It's not as if I found it difficult to find those examples either. Walk in to any college or university course that focuses on a field within science, I don't see any difference in attractive people there than anywhere else.

The totality of the OP's argument is ridiculous

Oh look, now he's assuming that the vast majority of actresses are air headed idiots. The primitive mindset continues....

On an average, when you watch scientific videos, the women that appear on it to comment or narrate, on an average are rather plain looking and fat. Is is something about the subject, that is not appealing to attractive women? Or is it that beauty and brains don't belong together? Wonder what's your take about this unprecedented phenomenon.


You don't get out enough: Fiorella Terenzi PhD (Astrophysics).



She is pretty alright

I'm assuming you are kind-of young. As you grow older, you'll realize that there are many other characteristics that make a woman beautiful. There are the standard beauty characteristics based on facial symmetry and such. And you never lose your appreciation of this kind of beauty. Though you may eventually finding it more distracting than appealing.

For instance, Ghost posted some pictures of some super-model class women. Those women were absolutely gorgeous. I also recall there were some words too, but I was too mesmerized by the images to care.


Now with these shows on the Science Channel and the H2 Channel, the female presenters and commentators may not necessarily fall into the standard beauty category. But the gleam in their eye when they discuss a favorite topic, and their flawless delivery of their complex monologue makes them unbelievably sexy. And most have their own exotic beauty. At this point in life, I look for true beauty in the uniqueness of a lady's perceived imperfections! The nice thing is that once you learn to appreciate these more complex factors, you will be less distracted from the material presented.

Here's an exercise for you. The next time you watch television, you may see a commercial for Liberty Mutual Insurance. In that series of commercials there are a bunch of regular looking people. A couple could even be considered funny-looking. Then you may see another commercial for Viagra. In this series of commercials they use some very beautiful women. I remember several points from the insurance commercial. All I remember from the Viagra commercial is the name of the product and a very pretty woman looking into the camera with a sultry-sexy look in her eye.

Just my humble opinion.

Are you sure you see a difference between science woman and woman in other professions? I've never noticed a difference myself. However, professions outside modelling and celebrity and even news reporting do generally have people with worse appearance. People in professions where appearnce isn't as important don't generally waste energy on it. The average american, for example, has a BMI about ~28 which is far from model thin. The average young actress with an average BMI (being ~28) gets talked out of roles until her BMI falls to less than 25. There're increasing numbers of them who're fatter because of the SJW movent, but still far greater numbers of actresses are thin because that gets the roel. Another factor is probably the stigma attached to weight, especially for woman. So a fatter woman is just less likely to pursue those careers because of fears and shame.

What should really be mentioned is is it right for movies and televison shows to typically have people with good looks?
abcnews.go.com - The Ugly Truth About Beauty...

Apparently it's not just actors or models who need to be good looking. Evidently, everybody is influenced by it, no matter the line of work.

You are talking to a person who thinks a heater is a time machine.

Just bear that in mind.
