Prejudice against acquired good qualities

Most people seem to be prejudiced against the hard worker who develops a talent or ability as opposed to those who are just lucky enough to have a desirable quality from lucky genetics. Why?

Is it really more admirable to have beautiful blue eyes from lucky genes, or work hard to make the money for cosmetic surgery to enhance what nature did nt bless one with?

I don't understand talk about real versus plastic breasts. While augmented boobs can get hard or feel unnatural, "real" ones can develop cysts, and hard spots too. Saline or silcon is real...

How about wealth. Many lucky or hard working guys become rich. Women who like to spend money are attracted to rich men, not surprisingly. Why fault the guy for getting rich and being more attractive for this ability? Why fault the girl for preferring wealth?

Logically, it is more admirable to have good qualities one had to work to create than those one was just fortunate to inherit...

Logically, we'd have to say the latter. Hard work is more admirable than genetic or economic inheritance.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...those are some thoughts to ponder. I have to say that you've explained it logically.

How about if I just admit to my prejudices?
