Just comparing her to the other major players in the FA community really drives home this point. Lindy West is quite pretty despite her weight, Jes Baker's face can be described as cute, and I think Fat Girl Flow has nice bone structure that would be quite striking if she wasn't a proud infinifat. The only other person in the movement I can think of that rivals Virgie in ugliness (and bitterness too) is Fat Heffalump.Virgie really did get a shitty roll of the genetic dice when it came to looks. There are so many fat girls where I can see how they could have been at least cute if they hadn't blown up, but Virgie isn't one of them. She's unfortunate enough to be homely straight to the bone, and without the kind of family money that paid for Dani's facial surgeries and braces (Dani's face was actually deformed, and looking like she has a hefty dose of bulldog DNA is a huge improvement).
I do feel bad for Virgie in a way - it's probably much easier for her to pin all of her problems and romantic disappointments on her weight rather than confront the fact that she's irredeemably ugly.
