One of the more potentially ugly parts of the
human male body is the section peeking
just over the collar where the back of
the neck meets the back of the head.
This would be more accurately refered to as the nape.
Two things are usually required from the subject
to make this site completely ugly. First,
he must have had his head shaved, or simply
have become naturally hairless. Second, he must be
slightly overweight, or muscular enough to have
converted this usually somewhat attractive area
into an almost completely flat surface of
dumb repulsive flesh. Of course there are instances where
the back of one's head does not protrude out as much
as any other's might, where the individual would
not necessarily have to meet the
criteria in full to sport an ugly nape.
In Reynold's postulate of 1976,
Reynold suggests that the gradual size increase
of shirt collars in popular fashion, and
the ever-growing population of young males with
long hair, are in direct correlation with
a sudden outbreak of ugly napes. He
continues by laying out a course of action
which he believes will solve the problem.
This action involves pushing the insecurity of not
being rich, rather than the usual insecurity push
of not being attractive. Reynold's ingenious
plan places the burden of this task upon
the well established mass media. Camera
shots of ugly napes belonging to young males
with money and women would certainly be
utilized to their fullest. Expensive wines, cars and business suits
would be the new medium of sexual attraction,
as opposed to, and outdating the current yet still
atrocious medium of external aesthetics.
