But even more astonishing that the majority of the gullible public consider Carl Beech a freak as opposed to the tip of the iceberg; the vast majority of sex claims are exaggerated or inflated and a hefty chunk are total fiction.

Some accusers are male, and look like tormented bulldogs.
Others are female, blonde, pretty, and have dazzling smiles.

I have noticed that quite a lot of female false accusers who have been convicted are, shall we say, "aesthetically challenged" and that some of the men who have been cleared of charges are very handsome.

It just makes you wonder how influenced juries are by appearances?

That goes all the way back to Ancient Greek drama and virtue ethics. It was thought that a virtuous personality would manifest itself physically in the beauty of the person. Likewise, evil character is accompanied by evil visage. Roald Dahl included a discussion of this very idea in The Twits, brilliantly illustrated by Quentin Blake.



Occasionally, we get a dashing villain, whose good looks are just a disguise. It's a deliberate inversion device, as a play on the well established good/evil inner/outer duality. Dracula and Grendel's Mother are good examples.
