Uglies Unlimited

Uglies Unlimited was founded by Danny McCrory in 1973. Its purpose was to promote the rights of ugly people. As far as I can tell, it remained in existence for only about a year.

Seems ironic that the member the media chose to focus on (below) was obviously attractive.

I wonder if the writer Scott Westerfeld ever knew of this earlier campaign.

Maybe they should have started a campaign of wearing masks. COVID-19 precautions have taught me I look a lot better when half my face is hidden by a mask

I’m sure that people who saw this young lady with her sign wondered what the heck she was protesting about.

She may not be ugly, but her pants are.
