I'm sorry you feel humiliated ButterflyWoman - that was in no way my intention, and I hope you don't leave the discussion because your contributions are valuable.
I was just trying to make the point that body-shaming for perceived unattractiveness comes in a wide range of forms, some of them harder for us to see than others because they are 'approved' by society in some way. A bit like the 'blondes are dumb' and 'gingers are ugly' stereotypes. People who wouldn't dream of making offensive jokes about fat people or black people will make blonde jokes or ginger jokes without giving it a second thought because those jokes are still seen to be okay.
