Analysis Of Tony Honore's Views On The Beauty Bias

104 Words1 Page
The beauty bias is when physically attractive individuals appear to have an advantage over less attractive individuals thus leading to discrimination and financial suffrage. In this essay, I will draw upon Tony Honore’s view on tort laws and Alan Sobel and Deborah Rhode’s view on the beauty bias. This paper argues that discrimination against those who are unattractive undermines their rights and liberties; individuals should have the right to seek compensation for being discriminated against in a public domain such as the workplace on the basis of appearance. Additionally, racial and sexual discrimination apply equally to discriminatory actions and policies based on physical attractiveness.
