The more appearance becomes a matter of choice, the more
rational it is to discriminate on that basis.
What is this obsession with people's intelligence? It's
no less shallow or discriminatory than appearance, yet it
seems to be acceptable to desire it in other people or
criticize their lack of it.
Discrimination is a tricky subject. All of us do it
every day, and it is a normal and necessary function for
choosing how we live, but we feel guilty about some of
those choices for obscure reasons.
