    This is the reason I refuse to wear glasses even though I can hardly see a thing.

    Napoleon Dynamyte - social retard
    Austin Powers - ugly, bad teeth
    Harry potter - probably an exception

    No idea who the other two are

    Still on TV/films glasses are generally reserved for weak, ugly nerdy characters (whether they are 'good' or not).

    Yes, because I have perfect eyesight I look down on my glasses-wearing friends with contempt.
    ...seriously? Who do you hang out with?

    treat those who do not have perfect vision like it's their own fault? I swear there is an unspoken hierarchy that places people who wear glasses below those who do not.

    It's not my fault
    Firstly, No-one has perfect vision, and secondly, some people are idiots.

    Interestingly, there's a correlation with wearing glasses to intelligence at my school. Reasons are rather silly (staring at a screen all day due to the 'nerd' attitude when I know I stare at screens more than most of them do), but I guess my mum's advice of eating carrots and other foods helps with eyesight, so I guess I haven't had to resort to glasses despite my mum (a medic) wearing reading glasses.

    Then again, people do categorise people who wear glasses as 'nerds' or 'geeks' as a negative stereotype, or socially-inept. Frankly, it's non-sense, there are some people who look better (and indeed hot) with glasses, for most though it's better without glasses due to having dominant/superior genes so we tend to respond to these people in a more positive light (survival of the fittest/attraction).

    Can anyone name any female characters to add to this? I've been trying to think of a few but there's none that come to mind right now.

    I hate it how people with perfect eyesight take it for granted and automatically think that everyone sees that way. However, I won't say they really feel superior or something, they just take it for granted.
