The Ugly Sisters were ugly, everybody knows that, and in visual media they portrayed that way. I'm not going attempt to the original conflation of ugliness with evil.
The sisters are no longer ugly. Somehow they have become 'cosmetically challenged' or 'aesthetically challenged'. These descriptions affect characterisation. If a character or a narrator uses such language they come across as tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic, or a snowflake.
Although this site doesn't allow critique wouldn't it be better to use plain, direct, simple language. Considering this new global environment and the language challenges it brings . . . Isn't 'Don't quit your day job' ultimately kinder than 'certain areas need addressing' or 'you'll require a good editor'.
Transfer our love of 'politeness' and the 'reluctance to offend' to other areas of real life and the results are disastrous. Take for example the #metoo movement. Many a woman ends up in hot water because she refused to declared 'Hell no!" Instead she tried to be polite, inadvertently leaving a crack of hope.
Or perhaps I can link the extreme behaviour demonstrated by the very narrow profile of mass shooters, men who were told there was always hope: if they worked hard and followed the rules they could achieve the dream. Retrospectively, would it have been better to pull them aside in 5th grade and told them they'll never be President - they should focus on a career in construction?
The outrage leading to mass shootings is felt by one demographic. Women rarely commit these atrocities, nor do blacks in the west. It is predominantly white men of a certain age on the realisation: despite all the encouragement, they are not good enough. This is the very definition of entitlement. Women were taught this at an early age, as were minorities. Neither demographic can experience the anger of total failure because the expectation of success was lowered at a very early age.
The entitled and privileged hall monitors will attempt to declare this post 'off-topic'.
It is not.
One of my characters becomes a US Senator by chance. A black, European man marries a white woman who becomes a US Senator. When she dies he adopts her position. As a man who adopts a position he was never entitled to, how does he behave?
