Resolved Question:

Recently one beautiful girl came to work in my office. She smile and flirt with all the other guys but not with me, because I'm ugly. According to the current law, can this be considered discrimination?
I got a little angry for this, I restarted smoking and after work I started crying many times. I decided not speak or help her anymore, in any ways. If I get in trouble at work because of that, is there any law that protect me for this kind of discrimination?

Hello,
I am afraid this will not be discrimination as your looks are not a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010.
The protected characteristics are as follows
Age
Disability
Gender reassignment
Marriage and civil partnership
Pregnancy and maternity
Race
Religion and belief
Sex
Sexual orientation
Hope this helps
