Many valuable people are not given their due respect in society

I think we're a backwards society, why do people like Colton Haynes get more attention than, say, people like John Nash.

We value beauty over intelligence.

Beyonce is more valued than people working in the EMS system.

The paramedic who saves your life and/or limbs out in the field is paid $20-$40 an hour compared to a pop star or athlete who makes millions per year.

Entertainment is more important than health in our society.

We are all valuable. Some of us get Nobel Prizes and Academy Award winning biographical films. Most don't.

Silent lucidity.

John Nash wasn't all that smart. Sorry.

That's because we worship celebrities making it a big business. If people sold triple the amount of magazines with an EMS worker or John Nash on the cover then things might be different.

As it stands now, it just kills me that the Internet made that Beiber shit popular and now I have to see his butter face on every magazine cover in Dagastinos.

How is it that Colton Haynes is given more attention than Shawn Pyfrom, who is issuing cries for help via his tweets of drawings stonifying presidents on U.S. currency?

Your view of "society" is a bit skewed, OP.

A segment of DL's obsession with Colton or the CW demographic is not even representative of DL or society.

I don't know who Beyonce, John Nash or Colton Haynes are, but I'm sorry they've never felt respected.

What the fuck are you all talking about?

Pardon me. I need to go back to counting my millions.
