Is the US a laughing stock if an attractive woman runs for office?
I don't think so.
Attractiveness runs in both parties, it shouldn't be a determining factor. And again, it shouldn't deter a vote either.
There are plenty of men that women swoon over, it works for them.
If there is a health risk by staying home too much, then I suggest that they need to get outdoors and into some sunshine, go out dancing at night, and hikes during the day.
