Do they mean that the Chinese are ugly or that the Reuters are ugly?? Nothing wrong with the photo, imho. Weightlifting in the act.

The Chinese Embassy accuses Reuters of picking up the worst photo of the Chinese champion during her act to make fun of Chinese.
I agree with you there is nothing wrong with this photo. From my perspective, Reuters photographer aimed at showing how incredibly difficult is weightlifting for athletes' body.
It is weightlifting. Taleb must know who is right here. Note I don't take too much risks with this statement as the man is the only one who always has it right and everyone else is an idiot.

Wait - that was a “her”? I may have to reconsider my point of view on this.

It’s quite something when your own embassy calls you ugly. With friends like these…

I could tell it easily from her facial skin - she shaves!
Not trying to ridicule her. Many Asian women do this for more glossy complexion :-)

I don't even shave my legs anymore :-( (helps to detect ticks' attack attempts).

Nope - there have been reports of a kjæreste. Most recently today.

Of all the things to shave, the legs are probably the most optional. I used to do mine when having to tape them to protect my ankles while competing in orienteering (once you have pulled out the hairs by removing the tape you realize that shaving is a lot less painful), but I don’t think it improved my sex appeal.

It's all about finding the right man!

The photo is actually an American psychologist Temerlin and a chimpanzee Lucy whom he brought up as his daughter... Didn't end well, as it was easy-going to predict (not for the idiot scientist).
