Why does society place such an utmost emphasis on looks?

Guys and girls who have the looks can get what they want, no matter how shallow or empty they are on the inside. They're always favored!

  • One word- mating
    It's not society it's humans (or primates in general) actually. Subconsciously we are always evaluating someone for their value as a mate and potential characteristics they will pass on to their offspring.
    Only way to get ahead when u r average looking is to have other characteristics that will help with your child being successful such as power, strength, money, and charisma
