Invisibility/Respect Levels

Society has so many standards that have crushed people's self-esteem for a long time and it's to the point where it is out of control. This world is solely based to much on looks instead of the spirit of people. There was a study done that said that attractive people get more jobs and opportunties than unattractive people just because of their looks. That is pretty sad because some people never get a chance to go inside the minds of the unexpected or the unique. It is a true statement that first impression is everything, but that shouldn't be the only concern either. The typical all-american look is blonde hair, blue eyes, big boobs, nice legs, and have a young look. That is pretty much the american standard of women and anyone the opposite of that is pretty much beneath them. These people that are beneath the standard are considered the invisible people because they are irrelevant. That is really harsh and disrespectful because god made all of us, but yet people want to be ignorant and unaccepting of the fact that they are different types of people. This has been going on for years and it just seems to get worst everyday. This issue is translated into everyday activities whether it is sports, work, school, etc. It is greatly effected in schools because kids are growing up and learning new things and getting into new experiences which comes with a lot of expectations. Bullying is becoming so severe and most of it is based off of looks and your sexuality. In high school there are all these categories and cliches that people actually follow which is like the standards of school on how you have to be and anyone else is beneath them. This world is such a controlled environment that it is not allowing people to live their lives the way they want to because there are too many unnecessary standards to follow. ThtheI
