    Default I Love Ugly People

    Believe it or not, I love ugly people because beautiful people are very insecure, smug, arrogant and vanity. (Only some people, not all as a whole.) I rather date an ugly woman than an attractive woman. I know many of you think that I'm talking crazy and figure what is up with Bartmanhomer? Well, it's the truth and that's how I feel about ugly people.

    I find that everyone has some feature or another that is attractive if you're willing to see it. Some people just have *a lot* of attractive features.

    Huh.
    Even when thinking in stereotypes, I wouldn't associate "smug, arrogant and vain" with ugly people. Isn't smugness, arrogance and vanity more something you'd find in very pretty people?
    GRIM ESSENCES - a story about silly people in a gloomy setting; a world bound by Plato-esque rules of perception, where wizards roam free, Gods are servants of mankind, and being a plunderer is a valid career choice. Amidst dangers and mysteries of dubious credibility, heroes and villains alike struggle to shape the world to their liking.

    You would think, but we all know one famous ugly man who's smug, arrogant and vain. It's just due to his wealth and power, not his looks. (No, not him...that would break the rules. Richard III).

    Different people find different people beautiful. One of my friends, who I consider beautiful, has been told by people that she's 'cute, not pretty but ****able'.

    I'd also argue that 1) you're generalising, and 2) you're possibly attracted more to personality than looks. You don't dislike beautiful people, you dislike insecure, smug, arrogant, and vain people.

    As a pretty person I can say that we can be insecure and vain without being smug and arrogant, and we can in fact show different sides of us at different points. And as has been said, we're also just the best at cooking, kindness, and public speaking, what's not to love? I mean, if that's not enough we have cake, you like cake right? Or if not I suppose we can whip up something savoury, how does roast beef with all the trimmings sound?

    Well, that probably depends on which you are, and whether Bartmanhomer finding you lovable to be a positive or negative.

    Oh god, that bottom-feeder of a movie. That was Hollywood embarrassing itself. "Let's put peak Gwyneth Paltrow in a fat suit, triple down on the 'fat people are disgusting' tropes, have the protagonist be able to see said fat person's 'inner beauty' (get this, a conventionally beautiful person), and pretend we're now being respectful of people outside of the size-zero-clothing set."

    The problem is, I don't think a woman would want to date you after you call her ugly.

    Besides, ugly people sadly do not automatically make up for their looks by having lovely personalities. Life isn't fair that way.

    People who make a lot of effort to look conventionally beautiful might be a bit boring, as they don't have time for other things, and they might be a bit vain and conceited (though for some others they simply make the effort because they are insecure, especially women) but that's about it.

    The looks with which someone is born say nothing about their personality.

    It would be wiser to look for a woman with a nice personality and tolerate a lack of beauty than to look for an ugly woman and assume that she must have a lovely personality.

    @Anonymouswizard: That friend of yours, the men (it was men, right?) who consider her "****able" (I can guess what the censored word is, and someone telling me that would be lucky to not be slapped in the face), do they think they have a chance with her?

    That's an even worse thing to say to a woman than "you are ugly, but you are lucky, I am attracted to nice personalities, and yours must be great, seeing how ugly you are!"

    It's admitting that they don't value her as a fellow human being, and that's extremely unattractive.

    Interestingly, the most beautiful man I ever met had a very nice and pleasant personality, while the most surprisingly unattractive man I remember (surprising because he had the reputation to be a casanova, which I found puzzling) had a rather unpleasant personality and lacked a sense of humour. It is well possible that to a heterosexual man, they would not look noticeably different except that the former guy put more effort into his appearance.

    Well, the converse is true also though, which defeats the point of the movie.

    He sees everyone based on their internal qualities, so people who are ugly inside look ugly outside while people who are beautiful inside look beautiful outside.

    But his viewing of them is still based on physical attractiveness. He's not accepting them because of their normal appearance and qualities, he's accepting them because the look physically beautiful to him. It therefore hasn't really changed anything.

    I meant ugly in a good positive way, not the other way around.

    I'm sure I'm confused. I thought it was my vain arrogance and smug insecurity that makes me attractive enough to overcome my detestable physical attributes. Or something. Anyway, my mom always said I was handsome.

    I am proud of knowing a lot of the meanings of English words, but I don't think I know the positive meaning of ugly.

    You could get away with telling a woman that you don't mind her being "plain" or "homely", but "ugly" is always negative for all I know.

    But really, you'd better just tell her you like her sense of humour and not mention her looks at all.

    The positive meaning of ugly is inner beauty. You don't need make-up and plastic surgery to be beautiful.
