    That is what some guy said to my little sis.
    Most (90%) of people think she's absolutely gorgeous and she always gets nice compliments from random strangers (female and male) when we're out. However, she has really low self confidence thanks to some bullying in year 7 and now she is very insecure.Today, this guy in her class said to her :'YOU'RE UGLY WHY DO YOU EVEN BOTHER WEARING MAKE -UP'l?' and why do you wear make up, you're still gonna be ugly though. who are you trying to impress; you're not even impressing me'


    What should i say that may help her with her confidence?

    What does he know about who you are and what beauty is? I think you look fine. Horrible people exist in this world who are bitter and deranged, and you shouldn't let them hurt you in this way. <- I'd say that to my little sister.



    What a horrible, horrible thing to say to someone.

    That's a hard one. If I was her my confidence would be permanently trashed. Probably best to take her under your wing for a night and then take her out. When she's getting so much attention from guys and compliments just make sure she's noticing them and hopefully she'll see that guy was just being a ****.

    Ps. You're a nice older sister

    Tell her that one persons opinion should be of no interest to her, especially given that the person is probably just saying these things to try and feel better about themselves.

    You need to tell her that that guy was completely out of order. What a loser. Tell her that the guy is probably insecure and/or fancies her. Some people can act very oddly around someone they fancy, especially when they are convinced that that person (in this case, your sister) is way out of their league. I guess it's like a defence mechanism.
    Anyway, there is hardly anyone who is deemed gorgeous by absolutely everyone. 90%... I think that's rather good! And I'm sure your sister was never unattractive in the first place, but everyone goes through that awkward phase in their early teens. Even the most beautiful people had bad haircuts, dodgy teeth, acne... you get my drift. I think most people need a few years to really grow into their looks and get comfortable in their own skin. I'm sure that there is not a single person on this earth who has not been called ugly at one point or another as well. It's easy to dismiss the compliments and fixate on the insults, but she needs to get this into perspective by realising that she must have been complimented so much more than she has been insulted.

    I also want to add that when people are young, they often have a very narrow idea of what is attractive. When people grow up a bit they realise that lots of different things can be very attractive.

    There are some very jealous, bitter and cruel people out there.

    If men think she's attractive then its obvious that guy is just being a ****. Hopefully your sister can realise that. People say I'm ugly and I couldn't give a ****.

    Actually, if she's a girl then I suggest she also beats the **** out of the little prick.

    Look, even if he's a large lad, if she unexpectedly kicks him in the knackers, he won't forget about it in a hurry.

    ultimately, the guy who said this is *a number of passionately rude words*

    there would be no truth in what he said because it takes a special kind of stupidity to throw such a level of rudeness around so liberally.

    make sure she knows that it's them and not her with the problem. I was bullied at school and it took a while for this to get through to me but it's so true!
