Today, in Craig’s List Los Angeles:
H.B.O. DOCUMENTARY CASTING/THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE
WE ARE LOOKING FOR EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE… FOR A DOCUMENTARY ON THE LIVES OF BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, WE ARE ONLY LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL, WE ARE OPEN TO ALL ETHNICITYS [sic.] AND ALL CREEDS OF PEOPLE… "PLEASE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE ONLY".
Hmmm….before I show up for the audition… What if I’m beautiful but I don’t think I’m beautiful? Do all extremely beautiful people know that they are beautiful? At what point does beautiful turn into extremely beautiful? If you are open to all ethnicities and creeds, which standard of beauty will you be operating under? What if my creed idolizes ugliness? What if I’m ugly but think I’m beautiful? Who uses the expression "all creeds of people" anymore? Why do some people capitalize an entire post thinking it reads better? Is ethnicities intentionally spelled incorrectly so there won’t be a lawsuit when everyone in the documentary is white and skinny?
