I was watching the show What Would You Do? (ABC News Primetime Ethical Dilemmas: What Would You Do?, $19.95 from Amazon), and they got a pretty, petite blonde to act like she was stealing a bike. It was obvious she was stealing it because she was trying to get rid of the chain with a saw. And guys, GUYS, started helping her.
According to Yale Professor Jack Devito in the clip:
“Attractiveness means that somebody is good, healthy and desirable. She doesn’t look threatening, but she also doesn’t look like she’s bad. Beautiful is good, so how can a good person do something bad?”
Some people also allege that Casey Anthony received subconscious sympathy from the jury and court because she was attractive.
Tell me, Lovelies: Do you think attractive people have it easier? Do you think the bike situation would have been reversed if it was an attractive male stealing the bike?
