    i feel like the word is thrown around around so much these days, particularly to describe one's own or others' physical appearance. I believe that NOBODY is ugly physically. we all have traits that are attractive and looks are subjective anyway. I have no problem calling someone's personality ugly but it upsets me when people use the term to describe themselves or others in terms of looks.

    this is such a hippy post but its open for discussion

    because nobody chose to look how they are so insulting a person's height, colour, hair texture etc. is just stupid imo. but people DO get to choose how they act towards others (to some extent) so i have no problem calling those who have horrible personalities (rude, obnoxious etc.) ugly (i'll ofcourse make it obvious its their personality thats ugly, not their looks)

    those things can change you TO AN EXTENT (unless its extreme plastic surgery where the person looks unrecognisable i.e michael jackson or renee zellweger) but you can't ever change your natural looks. ah i dont make sense but i hope you know what im sating.

    my thread shoulda been more specific perhaps

    when i said "ugly" girls i meant according to society b/c society is the one with the stereotypes. so girls like bjork or suzi quatro whom i think pretty would be ugly in that context. similarly nerdy girls are stereotyped as ugly tho IMO they are not

    How many brain cells are you missing?
    There is a difference between attractiveness and ugliness.
    I also believe than no normal person is truly ugly looking.
