Lookism is a term used to describe discriminatory treatment towards physically unattractive people; mainly in the workplace but also in social settings. A distinction should made between racial, cultural, sexual discrimination and that of physical attractiveness discrimination.

Physical attractiveness is associated with good things; in contrast, physical unattractiveness is associated with negative things. Many people make judgments of others based on their physical appearance that influence how they respond to those people.
