Never Pick a Fight with an Ugly Person, They've Got Nothing to Lose
Abbreviated Journal Title
Physical attractiveness; Unattractiveness; Mate selection; Crime; ATTRACTIVENESS; Social Sciences, Interdisciplinary; Sociology
In the 1970s, social psychologists conducted numerous studies analyzing physical appearance as a social variable. More recent studies in the social sciences appear to have abandoned this topic as unimportant; in any case, very few social scientific Studies have been found that incorporate a measure of attractiveness into their analyses. The present study seeks to revive the emphasis on physical attractiveness as a social variable by testing the relationship between crime severity and physical attractiveness, i.e., by presenting evidence to suggest that physically unattractive men commit more serious offenses.
