I was thinking about Tally's world, and how life sucks for Uglies. Also, the pretty operation seem kind of freaky. Then I was thinking about how there are "natural born pretties". And that must be genetics.
So the thought came to me: What if instead of getting a surgical operation, beauty came through genetics? A scientifical lab could decide on who would "mate" with who, based on their DNA and such to create an attractive kid.
I guess this idea would be kind of complicated, but let me know what you think. In order to be at the pretty standard though, they would probably still have to undergo some sort of operation to get the health benefits and all that. And this idea would probably also ruin the society structure that's in this world. But any thoughts?
