    I've never seen someone with an aesthetically pleasing pattern of distinctly individual specks of dirt on their face. Freckles don't look anything like dirt.

    Not that people without freckles are unattractive either, freckles are a complete non-game-changer for me.

    OP are you having self- esteem issues ?

    real talk , coming here to this website to speak about it was an absolute horrible choice.

    if somebody (or many people ) have called you beautiful when you think you 're not , there is an issue deeper at play here that cannot be answered as easily as "why do say ugly people are pretty "

    let me ask YOU a question: do YOU do that? if not , why do you feel being brutally honest to a sensitive subject is the best course of action ?

    not a well thought out post OP , not at all.

    I mean that rather than seeing the beauty in freckles, you only see the negative. Hence, dirt in the face.

    I was born with a few conditions that made me quite ugly... I have no shame in accepting that fact, but I also don't go out of my way to call others ugly even if they are. But my wife of 8+ years insists that I don't look ugly, so I'm sure there's always perception to beauty.

    Physical attraction is extremely subjective as countless others have pointed out.

    eye of the beholder. What you consider ugly I might see as very appealing.

    though tbh this thread started in such a shallow way without even an example of the standard the op meant, so can guess thats not a deep well.

    Actually physical beauty is quantifiable, and is linked to symmetry. That being said, having a kind heart and being thoughtful and selfless are much more desirable traits in a friend/mate.

    in case one, its not something they can change or something they chose.

    in other case, im with you! obesity is a problem and encouraging people who have it to do nothing is a bad thing.
    Beauty is subjective but it does have some common elements. Proportional and symmetry. It is possible to program a computer that will predict how attractive you are based on the researched proportions. Ugliness is how far away you are from these golden proportions and symmetry.

    Pretty simple actually.

    Science disagrees. There is some subjectivity but it is small. Not extreme.

    I'm not sure if symmetry is the basis of beauty. Many things are symmetric and lack beauty. Spiders have symmetry yet are hideously disgusting. Asymmetric flowers can also be very aesthetically pleasing.

    Because calling people ugly is proven to often have the opposite effect than a simple person who doesn't understand basic human psychology would think.

    When you call someone ugly, that person usually doesn't use that as fuel to get better. They drive themselves mentally further downwards, and likely to eating or laziness or if it's purely a part of their physical features that are unsightly they'll just become even more self-conscious. They likely know that many people see them as ugly, and your input isn't valuable to them.

    Sometimes your feelings for a person can increase their attractiveness level to you which is why many ugly actors and singers like Benedict Cumberbatch and Lady Gaga have people that say they are good looking when in reality they are either ugly or average looking.

    It’s usually better to make people feel better, not worse. Especially when it comes to wholly personal issues.

    It definitely shouldn’t be glorified like some do though.

    Someone beautiful to you is ugly to someone else and someone ugly to them is beautiful to someone else and then both of them are ugly to many and beautiful to many and so forth.

    Do we do that? I don't really see anyone telling ugly people that they are beautiful except maybe their parents. We just don't tell them they are ugly to their face because a) that's pointless, b) we have tact, c) it's cruel. I guess you don't mind being tactless and cruel but others might.

    Same reason I don't call every other person a cunt. I might think they are one but it's not exactly a great way to operate within society

    That's kinda hard since beauty is subjective for the most part and someone you find very ugly is found very attractive by someone else. Sometimes there are people who the majority agree are attractive or unattractive but even then there will be people who think the opposite.

    Also there's these things called manners. If you are going around straight up calling people ugly to their face maybe you should learn them.

    I don't understand concept of someone being ugly or beautiful. I may like or dislike someones looks, but is there some sort of council that decides which features and combinations of features make a person beautiful or ugly? If so, where can i get familiar with such features?

    Both "beautiful" and "ugly" words used in this context are empty words with no meaning.

    Who's we? I pride myself on being that guy that's, "Don't ask questions you don't want the answers to."
    You know, it's kinda funny. On this forum you can question and criticize celebrities, developers, even governments. But only two you will net you instant infractions; religion and the actions of moderators. Really puts into perspective the literal god complexes we're dealing with here.
