Summary: Great comment about the world not being fair, attractive people having an easier time in life, etc. gets 2000+ upvotes, gilded four times so far. However, its a reply to a comment from a man about how he was treated different when he was no longer a fatty. And this comment itself seems to be written by a man. Even more amazingly, the SJWs don't brigade and downvote it, which further fuels the fact that they're just spouting off propaganda to further their goal... control.
It's a hard truth that people like to gloss over, physical attractiveness is important.
Straight out of Survival of the Prettiest. A shockingly RP book from a female author.
We all grow up being told that we are special little snowflake and it's what is on the inside that counts. But that isn't true. Your interactions with society are extremely based on your presentation. If you are overweight or ugly, you are already on tilt.
More RP truth...
The problem is that people give huge weight to first impressions. We all do. If you don't, you're a liar, you do it too even if it is subconscious. It doesn't take much, it's initial impression, how they greet you, how they look, is their handshake sweaty, do they have a weird way of speaking. It is entirely possible to overcome this, but when you don't make a celebrity grade first impression, you are fighting an uphill battle. More importantly, we all do it, we shouldn't look down on people because it happens.
So yes, it's true. Handsome and beautiful people get the world handed to them. They will get the jobs they aren't really qualified for, they will get the opportunities denied to people better suited to those goals, they will get the fame, they will get the fortune.
Here's the real truth though, that people should actually teach their kids. Sometimes in life you get handed a shit sandwich. You can chomp on that shit sandwich and pretend like it is an extra crispy BLT, and most people do just that. Or you can look at that shit sandwich, and decide that you're gonna save up your change and buy a real sandwich. Some of us are born ugly, some of us gain weight easily, some of us aren't very smart. Society likes to ignore this.
Here's where some real personal accountability and self-realization comes in. Most people today, granted mostly women, but its also a lot of men too, think society needs to change to accommodate them. Glad to see at least 2000 or so Redditors aren't brainwashed...
The correct answer isn't to ignore this. The correct answer is to accept this as a fact, and work harder to overcome it. It is possible. You can get fit, even if it is harder for you then the people around you. You can work on your social skills, to overcome your bad impression with a resounding character. You can even try to fix your appearance, whether that is plastic surgery or makeup or dressing up.
At the end of the day, getting where you want to be begins with accepting where you are. Once you accept that, and the ugly truths that go with it, you can set your life on the path to overcome these obstacles. The most important truth, beyond all these ugly truths, is there always is a way forward. You just need to find it.
TL;DR / Lessons Learned:
RP truth hits a default sub, gets upvoted to shit and back... god forbid the guy had ever posted to TRP, it would have been demonized as misogynistic drivel designed to drive apart community 'inclusiveness'. Apparently, every now and then, the liberal SJW brigade lets actual truth slip through, likely by accident. Lesson learned? SJW / liberal cognitive dissonance can hit a level even they can't ignore...
